Getting a good night’s sleep on a consistent basis can do wonders for both your physical and mental health. When you fall short, however, the deficit takes a serious toll on your energy level, emotions, and productivity. Furthermore, when mental health issues and sleep deprivation are combined, they create a flurry of overlapping symptoms that are frustrating, scary, and lonely. If left unchecked, these symptoms can ultimately result in relationship problems, worsened mental health symptoms, and self-destructive behavior. Luckily, there are solutions to improve the quality and duration of your rest. It just takes some diligence and commitment to several practices that work together for a tried-and-true sleep panacea that can train your body to wind down at night and promote the best sleep possible.
