    Why Sleeping Less Than 8 Hrs Is Linked To Repetitive Negative Thoughts

    Getting by with lesser than 8 hours of sleep? Well, you might be able to function, albeit just about, but sleeping less than eight hours is linked to an increase in the propensity to see repetitive negative thoughts like those seen in anxiety or depression, warns a recent study.

    Meredith Coles and Jacob Nota from Binghamton University, State University of New York, who conducted the study examined timing and duration of sleep in individuals with moderate to high levels of repetitive negative thoughts.

    Coles explained that people have some tendencies to have thoughts get stuck in their heads and their elevated negative thinking makes it difficult for them to disengage with the negative stimuli.

    "While other people may be able to receive negative information and move on, the participants had trouble ignoring it," Coles noted.

    The participants were exposed to different pictures intended to trigger an emotional response and the researchers tracked their attention through their eye movements.
