In today's world people lead busy lives whether it be from working, taking classes or even raising kids. Sometimes it's hard to find time to do what's needed, sleeping. 

According to researchers, turns out women need more sleep than men.

The Daily Mail reports females brains work harder than a man's brain by multi-tasking. Multi-tasking causes the brain to need time recover and rejuvenate.
