OverviewSleep deprivation is both a cause and a consequence of poor mental wellbeing. The less sleep we get, the worse we feel, and the worse we feel, the less sleep we get. Lack of sleep can lead to the vicious cycle of caffeine overuse, which ends up making us feel even worse.
Studies show that when we’re getting less than 7 hours sleep a night, the part of our brain that generates stress—the amygdala—becomes more active. Sleep deprivation leads to an increase in stress hormones in our system. Over time, it can affect our mood, energy levels, and physical health.
The good news is there are lots of easy—and often fun!—steps we can take to improve our sleep.
In this course, you’ll discover numerous simple yet powerful tips and techniques to help optimise your sleep.
