Is Sleeping Too Much Just as Bad as Sleeping Too Little?

Hey, here's a slight silver lining for everyone else like me who sleeps for around five or six hours a night.  We don't need to be jealous of the people who manage to sleep for 11 straight hours.  They're JUST as dumb as we are.

According to a new study, sleeping too much is just as bad as sleeping too little.

The researchers found that people who slept for four or five hours a night would perform on tests like their brains were nine years older.  BUT . . . they saw the same effect on people who slept for over 10 hours a night too.

The biggest abilities you lose when you sleep too much or too little are your reasoning and verbal skills.

So it's probably best not to get into a serious argument or negotiation when you're super tired . . . or super well-rested.
