How Does Sleep Affect Your Mental Health


I've been taking care of my mom for a long time. 

Trying to balance work, my children, and caring for my mom is a lot. 

At the end of each day, it's hard to relax and stop my mind from worrying, let alone sleep. I'm so tired of being tired. 

Since my wife's diagnosis, I must work more hours to support our family.


I work long, long days and I take on caregiver responsibilities too. 

I drink coffee to help me stay energized for my wife's appointments. 

Even though I feel exhausted at the end of each day, I just can't sleep at night. 

My mind continues to race when I want to rest.

         My son means the world to me. I wanna do everything I can to support him and get his mental health back on track

         I gave up my gym membership and skipped most of my book club gatherings. I just feel tired all the time.

         Sleep deprivation can occur when one doesn't get enough sleep consistently.

         may lead to increased irritability, lack of concentration, difficulty in making decisions, and forgetfulness.

         It may also contribute to additional physical health problems. Talk with your doctor to learn more about the risks related to lack of sleep. 

tips that may help to improve the quality of your sleep. 

         Create a quiet, cool, dark sleep space

         Avoid electronics before or while in bed. 

         Avoid stimulants like caffeine late in the day. 

Some lifestyle changes that can also benefit your sleep and mental health 

         include creating a calming routine before bed, such as taking a warm bath, reading a book, or doing a relaxation exercise, trying to keep a consistent sleep schedule, waking up and going to bed at the same time each day, even on the weekends. 

         Since I established my own bedtime routine, I fall asleep faster and I feel more rested during the day. Cutting out my afternoon coffee and better managing my time helped me get a better night's sleep. Now that I'm better rested, I find myself more present and I'm to enjoy more time with my family. 

* Changing a few simple habits and making sleep a priority can be a winning combination for your own self-care, as well as for those you care for. Take the time to sleep on it.
