We feel calmer and more balanced after a good night's sleep.
Sleep and mental health go hand in hand. The more stressed and anxious you feel, the harder it can be to sleep. The less sleep you get, the higher your risk of stress, anxiety and depression becomes. This is because sleep is essential for regulating emotions and maintaining the fine chemical balance within body and brain. Sleepfit understands that sleep is a core pillar of mental health.
Mental health prevention
Sleep deprivation is heavily associated with anxiety and depression and in most cases, precede a mental health crisis. For example, people with insomnia are more than three times as likely to develop an anxiety disorder. In the case of depression, sleep problems in one year are found to be predictive of the onset of depression the following year.
