Women often find it harder to say ‘no’ to others’ requests and feel guilty if they can’t fulfill their responsibilities. In addition, as…

Sleeping Time Linked to Poor Self-Regulation Among Teens

Poor self-regulation among teens is strongly associated with when one sleeps in relation to their body’s natural circadian rhythm, finds a study. According to the study, published in the journal Pediatrics, daytime sleepiness and being a night owl appear to be more strongly associated with poor self-regulation. “The results of this study suggest it is not how long you sleep that has the biggest impact on self-regulation, but when you sleep in relation to the body’s natural circadian rhythms and how impaired you are by sleepiness,” said Judith Owens, Director…
