Study Reveals Sleep Quality Impacts Women’s Mood And Career Ambitions. We Just Need Our Beds!
If you will tell me to name one thing that I prioritise over anything, the answer will be my sleep schedule because I think that a better sleeping schedule helps me to concentrate. However, I just discovered the reason behind having a proper sleeping schedule and I’m stunned. A recent study indicated that sleep quality impacts women’s moods and their work ambitions. The researchers of the Washington State University-led study discovered that sleep quality not only impacted women’s moods but also changed how they felt about advancing in their respective careers.
They also found out that men’s aspirations may not be impacted by their quality of sleep. They discovered this finding in a two-week-long survey study of 135 workers in the United States. Each day the participants first noted how well they had slept and the quality of their current mood, and at the end of the day how they felt about striving for more status and responsibility at work.

Leah Sheppard, the lead author and an associate professor at WSU’s Carson College of Business mentioned that women are more likely to be oriented in their daily intentions toward achieving status and responsibility at work when they are getting a good night’s sleep and their mood is boosted. She added that they also noted that women were less oriented towards their goals when their sleep is poor which reduces their positive mood.
The study is published in the journal Sex Roles, Julie Kmec of Washington State University and Teng Iat Loi of the University of Minnesota-Duluth are the co-authors

These findings of the research also indicate that women should strive to get better sleep if they want to advance their careers. Leah Sheppard said it is important to be able to connect aspirations to something which is happening outside the work environment and it should be controllable. She added that there are many things that anyone can do to have a good night’s sleep and regulate their mood in general.
