Interpersonal relations and sleep

People who have good relationships as young adults experience less stress as they get older which, in turn, lead to them sleeping better. Chloe Huelsnitz, from the University of Minnesota, led a team of researchers who studied 112 people, following them from their early 20s until they were 37. People were asked about their relationships when they were 23 and 32 and about stressful life events at 23,32 and 37.

About John Gale

I work as a medical librarian in the Joint Education and Training (JET) library at Leighton Hospital, Crewe. I keep clinicians up to date with the latest research, help them to find the best information about treatment and train them to find - and assess - high-quality information for themselves. I also help doctors and nurses find and write high-quality information for patients.
