Mental Health and Sleep (Wednesday)

Mental Health and Sleep

Cortisol is at its highest in the morning and is meant to decrease as we move throughout the day. Evidence shows that poor mental wellbeing can cause chronically elevated levels of cortisol. Making the person feel as if they are always in ‘fight or flight’ mode. High cortisol is not conducive with good quality sleep.

  • Studies estimate that up to 90% of adult and children with major depression experience some form of sleep problem.*
  • Sleep problems affect more than 50% of adult patients with generalized anxiety disorder. *

What you can do to improve sleep:

  • Minimise stimulants such as caffeine.
  • Reduce your screen time or use a blue light filter.
  • Create a sleep-awake cycle that works for you.
  • Be consistent with your bedtimes.
  • Create the right environment for sleep. Minimise light and sleep.
