The Brain - Part 10

Disproportionally depression is observed in those with sleeping disorders; with insomnia as a risk factor for the development of recurring depression.

Sleep Deprivation can lead to some serious mood instability with research supporting that it can impair the central and peripheral nervous system which can lead to an inability to distinguish between threats in our life.

This can mean that situations which would otherwise seem harmless are now perceived as threats leading to heightened anxiety in social and work settings.

This can be observed largely in our schools where mental health is at an all time low but screen time, poor sleep hygiene and late nights are at an all time high.
