Day 19 - Mental Health Awareness Month (Sleep)

Updated: May 24

how did you sleep last night!

It’s Sunday and I am thankful for having me here with you today. It’s the 19th day of Mental Health Awareness Month and the Question of the Day is: How did you sleep last night?

A good night’s sleep is essential to your mental health. Many mental health disorders, especially anxiety and depression, can disrupt sleep OR they may become worsened when sleep related issues occur. Getting enough sleep facilitates emotional and mental health.

When we are sleep deprived, we often tend to experience an increase in negative emotions, such as anger, irritability, and sadness, and a decrease in positive emotions like joy and happiness.  Having a good sleep schedule will help to reduce stress, allow you to think more clearly, and can even lead to having better relationships with other people. We all know somebody who can be a bear to deal with if they haven’t gotten a good night’s sleep. Don’t be the bear.

Develop a nightly ritual that allows you to wind down at least 30-60 minutes before you plan to go to sleep. Also, keeping the temperature in your bedroom cool will contribute to a restful night’s sleep. Be mindful of these tips tonight and Sweet Dreams!
