If you have trouble sleeping, you can probably blame your parents for it.
Sleeping problems in people are more common among those who have parents with a history of sleeping issues, a new study suggests. The study, published in the Sleep Medicine journal, found that children with parents who suffered from insomnia were 1/3 more likely than others to also suffer from insomnia.
“The familiar aggregation of many sleep disturbances was not explained by investigated lifestyle and environmental factors. This supports a heritable factor in sleep problems,” reads an excerpt from the study.
A lack of sleep has been found to make people more anxious and impair their memory.
