Relationships and money troubles prevent us from catching zzz's with ease.
None of this comes as a surprise to Amanda Dixon, a Bankrate.com analyst. "Millennials have a lot to worry about," she explains. "the economy overall is in good shape, but wages are stagnant, housing costs are rising, and the job market has become more competitive. It's no wonder so many 20- or 30-somethings lie awake at night."
Even some worries associated with older populations can sneak up on millennials in the wee hours, the report found. While Younger Baby Boomers (ages 54 to 63) and Gen Xers (ages 38 to 53) are most likely to lose sleep over saving for retirement (25% and 22% respectively), fully one-fifth (or 20%) of older millennials do the same.
Tired of, well, being tired because you lost sleep over financial worries? Try consulting with a financial professional to formulate long-term savings goals and plans. When it comes to setting your mind at ease—and setting you up for a good night's sleep—that's a move that's right on the money.
