A new study has revealed that sleep problems that persist after divorce can be harmful to the health, as it increases blood pressure.

David Sbarra, the co-author of the study, said that the sleep problems that persist for an extended period after divorce mean that the person is potentially becoming depressed and struggling to get their life on track, and it is these people who are particularly susceptible to health problems.

Krietsh, the lead study author, suggested that people who have persistent difficulties sleeping after a divorce, should address the issue by seeking out cognitive behavioral therapy, making daily schedule adjustments that promote healthy sleep, or finding new ways to relax at bedtime.

This study will be published in the journal Health Psychology.
