Lack of sleep intensifies anger, impairs adaptation to frustrating circumstances. Losing just a couple hours of sleep at night makes you angrier, especially in frustrating situations, according to new research. While the results may seem intuitive, the study is one of the first to provide evidence that sleep loss causes anger. The research also provides new insight on our ability to adjust to irritating conditions when tired. Source 4j.
I am not always grumpy when I get little sleep actually I am usually in pain and am more prone to anger than grumpy. I do enjoy sleep when I do get it.
I’m with Politica.
With a three year old and a new baby due in January I suspect I might be on the grumpy side for the first six months or so of 2019!
Well I haven't so much seen anger, but personally I have seen myself get more easily frustrated and unable to setbacks or unexpected breaks in my routine when I haven't slept so well. Where setbacks or bad things that happen during the day bother me more.
I agree with this so much. I have horrible insomnia if I don't take my medications, meaning I never go into the deep sleep I need to rest, so I don't feel rested at all. Physically, I have flu-like symptoms, and mentally I am easily irritated and don't have as much control on lashing out. As in I get 'snappy' when I'm tired.
