Common job-related problems—such as conflicts with bosses or co-workers—are more likely to cause poor sleep than even long hours, night shifts or job insecurity. That’s the conclusion of a new University of Michigan study of 2,300 adults who were followed for a decade.

Respondents who frequently felt upset at work or had ongoing conflicts with bosses or co-workers were about 1.7 times more likely than others to experience sleep problems.

The conclusion:
“Physical strain at work tends to create fatigue and leads to restorative sleep, but psychological strain has the opposite effect.”
