Insomnia May Be Genetic, Large Study Finds

  Insomnia May Be Genetic, Large Study Finds The results might not apply if you only suffer from insomnia for a short amount of time.More than 30,000 U.S. soldiers had their genomes sequenced as part of the study. Based on that collection of sequences and the results of surveys the soldiers took, researchers found that parts of chromosome seven appeared to be linked with their insomnia-related survey answers. Though this region didn’t actually overlap with any particular gene, it was close to two—including one that another study had linked to a gene that might influence how much a person drinks.

I think my mom has said that at least twice in every conversation we've ever had. I've always been a worrier. I've even worried over the fact that I'm a worrier. I'd say it's gotten better over time as I've found better stress-relief techniques (sup, spinning?), but I'm definitely still one to overthink.

Sometimes it's totally irrational, like OMG what if the stove magically turned itself back on after I turned it off and left the apartment? And other times, it's rehashing past events that keeps me up at night. Was I too nervous on that interview? Did I have enough fun on that vacation? Did I take that guy for granted?

According to a study in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, it's actually a sign of certain intelligence.

I think my mom has said that at least twice in every conversation we've ever had.

I know it's silly to stress about the past or the things that haven't happened yet (and maybe even won't) but sometimes I'll justify it by saying it keeps me on my toes—it makes me focused, perceptive, trying to improve. I'd rather be someone that gives a sh*t about things—even if one of those things is preventing my apartment from burning down. Isn't it better to care than not care?

After researchers gave 126 undergrads surveys to measure both their intelligence and how much they stressed over events in their lives, they found a link between worrying and verbal intelligence.

Why anxiety makes you eat — and what to do

  Why anxiety makes you eat — and what to do Yes, there’s a biological reason those cookies just disappeared, but you can use your mind to outmanoeuvre it.This unconscious hand-to-mouth eating has a biological explanation: when you’re anxious, your brain tends to focus on an immediate reward (a tasty bite), while forgetting a long-term goal (like losing weight).

On the other hand, they also found that the more respondents replayed past events over in their minds, the lower they ranked on non-verbal intelligence. OK, so it looks like you're not a complete genius from all your fretting.

  People Who Feel Anxious Right Before Bed Are Smarter, Says Study © Provided by Getty Why's that? According to lead researcher, Alexander Penney, people who are verbally intelligent fixate on past and future events in greater detail, leading to more intense dwelling, while non-verbally intelligent people are better at processing what happened in the moment, so they don't need to re-think events in their heads after.

So there you have it, fellow worrywarts. If you were worried about all your worrying, be assured that there is a benefit. Now, that's something you can relax over.
