For many people, the key to mental health is sleep. Sleep can impact multiple mental health conditions, but it can be hard to manage sleep.
What Causes Insomnia?
There are three sleep patterns that can cause insomnia:
- Decreased sleep drive: this is your deep sleep function. We need to build up our sleep drive throughout the day in order to rest well at night.
- Dysregulated body clock or circadian rhythm. Your body clock dictates the amount of time you sleep. Regulating your body’s clock can decrease insomnia.
- Worry and anxiety can keep you up at night. Whether you have situational worries or struggle with anxiety, it can lead to insomnia. Insomnia can also increase anxiety about sleep resulting in increased insomnia.
