Your sleeping problems are inherited, study suggests

A recent study published in the Sleep Medicine journal found a strong correlation between parental insomnia and sleeplessness in their children. 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.
