Your emotional state directly depends on how much sleep you get at night. If you follow sleep hygiene and go to bed and wake up at the same time as you usually do, then your emotional state will be ok. However, if at night you could not fall asleep or you went to bed very late, then in the morning you should expect all the ‘charms’ of a bad mood.
It has been proven that a change in emotional stability is constantly observed in those who have been experimentally deprived of sleep and in patients with chronic sleep disorders. Moreover, in many experiments, healthy participants who were deprived of sleep also demonstrated a decrease in mood the next day.
There is also another option, why you can suffer from insomnia. All due to the fact that you cannot control your emotions, you cannot cope with the task of avoiding anxiety and depressive thoughts. And as a result, every night you struggle with insomnia. This proves the point that insomnia is a consequence of various ‘mood’ problems.
However, studies have shown that sleep-restricted healthy subjects, as well as patients free from psychiatric illness, but who have a chronic sleep disorder, also show impairments in emotional well-being. This suggests a possible primary role for sleep in regulating emotional responses the next day.
Do you want to avoid all the problems that can destroy your mood? Then, you should get a healthy sleep every night! Researchers have confirmed the fact that healthy sleep can improve aspects of mood and emotional well-being, as well as mental health. If you don’t believe us, then see for yourself. Two months after you set up your sleep regimen, you will wake up exclusively in a good mood.
