Good Sleep and Work Ambitions

Good Sleep and Work Ambitions

Getting proper rest is vital for all aspects of our lives. A recent study wanted to investigate the impact of good sleep on work ambitions for men and women. The study found that “When women are getting a good night’s sleep and their mood is boosted, they are more likely to be oriented in their daily intentions toward achieving status and responsibility at work. If their sleep is poor and reduces their positive mood, then we saw that they were less oriented toward those goals.” Interestingly, “men’s aspirations were not impacted by sleep quality.” Why the difference between the sexes? The researchers suspect “it may have to do with gender differences in emotion regulation as well as societal expectations—or some combination of these forces.”
