Lack of sleep could hurt relationships
January 21, 2013 (WLS) -- If you want to appreciate your significant other a little more, get some sleep.
A new study found that sleep deprivation can leave couples too tired to appreciate the other one and may leave a partner feeling as if they are being taken for granted.
Researchers found that poor sleep might make it harder for people to count their blessings and value their partners.
Sleep deprivation may be make people more selfish as we prioritize our own needs over our partners, according to the study conducted by the University of California at Berkeley.
Scientists recommend people say "thanks" when your partner does something nice and let them know you appreciate it.
