Did you know that Saturday, 10th October is going to be World Mental Health Day globally?
Back in 1992, the World Federation for Mental Health decided to make this an annual event with a different theme each year, similar to World Sleep Day.
This year’s theme is ‘Mental Health for all – greater investment – greater success’
During the last months, we’ve all experienced a lot of change, uncertainty impacting so many areas of our life which also impacted our mental health, no doubt about that! In the next 7 days, we’ll focus on the link between your mental health and sleep problems.
Of course, every mental illness is different but there are some commonalities when it comes to the signs and links between these two.
Please always seek help rather than self-diagnose.
Let’s start with the physiological part of The Sleep Deep Method@.
Low energy during the day
This can present in two ways. Either sleeping too much or being unable to carry out everyday activities and tasks like work or even as simple as self-care.
High quality and regular sleep have an important restorative function in recharging the brain and the body at the end of each day.
Sleep allows us to reset every day and helps to optimize functioning.
I also wanted to share a video that I recorded that can help you reassess the level of tiredness you experience each day.
