Are you cranky when you don’t get enough sleep?

It's no secret that poor sleep gets in the way of all kinds of good things in life. Over the weekend, a team of researchers from UC Berkeley said it was exploring yet another way that lack of sleep may affect us: by making it harder for us to appreciate our loved ones.

Psychology doctoral student Amie Gordon spoke Saturday about three studies she's conducting at a meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology in New Orleans. In the first study, 56 undergraduates were asked to assess their previous night's sleep; some of them were further asked to write up to five things for which they were grateful and then report how thankful or grateful they felt at that moment. (It's known that people who experience gratitude are happier, healthier and better connected to those around them.) People who had slept well reported feeling more grateful after making their lists than people who had slept poorly.

    Maybe a little. But not usually if any at all unless someone gives me a reason or reasons. Im a really positive person and really try to stay that way no matter what. Also depends on how much sleep i got and how i was feeling that day. Stupid video. And thats the top opinion. Ha. I like the comment about flipping everything. Haha. Wow. Look out.

    No offense but why was this studied? This is pretty obvious, people who don't get enough sleep are annoyed.....if you got enough (be it 5 hrs or 10 hrs)....then you would feel well rested and in a better mood.....

    Cranky? Try deranged. If I get less than 5 hours, I could probably start WWIII singlehandedly and quite by accident. So...YES.

    Absol-freakin-lootly. Very little is worse than being tired when I need to be alert. I'd rather be in pain than be tired. It's like torture. I get irritable, angry, foul tempered, don't like anyone around me and I'll say things I later regret.
