Do you know what you’re supposed to do when you’re feeling a physical breakdown? Sleep! This seems weird, but good sleep can help you go through a lot more things than you can ever imagine.
Experts estimate that approximately 50 million Americans have some form of sleep disorder. Sleeping problems are not only in America. It is believed that 33% of people in the world suffer from some type of sleeping disorder. Having a good sleeping pattern is important for your mental and physical health and to help you maintain a good quality of life.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, those who suffer from depression or anxiety claim an increase in their anxiety due to lack of sleep with 52 percent of men and 42 percent of women stating it directly affected their ability to remain focused the following day.
Your social life can also suffer which can lead to depression or increased depression signs. Without quality sleep, the body cannot repair and becomes a state of sleep deprivation that stacks nightly. This leads to a rapid decline of behavioral response including moodiness and irritability.
How to tackle anxiety depends on the underlying event. One therapy is cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) and can benefit adults in treating anxiety. Learn more about CBT in a blog featuring Dr. Angie Randazzo.
