Feeling lonely? Science says you might just need more sleep
Do you ever just feel like you're in a social slump? It happens to all of us from time to time, and maybe you're feeling that way right this very second. If so, scientists from the University of California, Berkeley, have good news for you: you might just need to get a bit more shuteye.
In a new paper published in Nature Communications, researchers explain that feelings of loneliness and social isolation can actually be triggered by a lack of good quality sleep. Their work suggests that those who make a habit of going without an adequate amount of sleep can not only end up feeling averse to social interaction, but can even seem less appealing to friends, causing further isolation as a result.
