Do you know that poor sleep habits are the main cause of the increase in mental health problems?
As our lives continue to get busier, sleep becomes less and less of a priority. The consequences are more than just tiredness - poor quality or quantity can lead not only to issues with cognitive function but also an increase in confusion as well as personality changes.
These changes make it difficult for seniors who suffer from these disorders to make good decisions regarding their daily routine.
Also, Poor sleep and mental health go hand-in-hand. Research shows that people who don’t get enough good quality sleep tend to experience more anxiety and depression than those who do. Sleep deprivation is also linked with an increased risk for suicide attempts! So it goes without saying that getting a good night's rest is crucial for your overall well-being.
