There's a definite link between your career choice and the quality of your sleep.
Now it would seem that workplace relationships also have a direct influence on your sleep - in fact, if you're bullied at work you may be more likely to suffer from insomnia.
A Finnish study looked at over 6,000 employees between the ages of 40 and 60 years old.
Researchers found that women who were bullied at work were 51% more likely to have a prescription for psychoactive drugs (such as benzodiazepines).
Men who were bullied were more than twice as likely to be taking psychoactive drugs compared to their non-bullied colleagues.
Even those who simply witnessed workplace bullying were more likely to be taking psychoactive drugs compared to those in more positive and respectful work environments - women were 53% more likely and men were almost twice as likely.
If you're in a toxic workplace, you may want to consider a career change if you want to improve your sleep.
