Did you know that being lonely can affect sleep pattens?

In a recent US study, high scores of loneliness matched greater levels of fragmented sleep.

Dr Linda says “The study suggest that social interaction provides a sense of security – and it’s likely we’re dependent on feeling that security in order to sleep well. so if you’re having trouble sleeping, make a pint of keeping your social life active, as it will no doubt help bring those zzzs on.”

If you have been affected by this in any way, please tell leave a comment on my discussion website below telling us how you felt when you starting being socially active, or how you’re feeling because you’re not socially active.
