Article Of The Month: Relation between Sleep Quality and Stress
Sleep is a necessary human function — it allows our brains to recharge and our bodies to rest.
Deeper sleep leads to less stress and vice versa, new research shows.
One night of lousy sleep, just one night, is all it takes for your stress level to go through the roof, scientists are discovering. “The quality of your sleep plays a crucial role in the way you cope with stress. Lack of sleep affects the brain’s ability to regulate your emotional response to events” says D. Jennifer Martin, a clinical psychologist and a behavioral sleep medicine specialist at UCLA.
It doesn’t end there, because the extra stress makes sleep even more elusive the following night. “Your cortisol levels are elevated and your heart is pumping faster—two things that keep you awake and impair the quality of your rest once you do drift off,” Martin says. In fact, research shows that people who slept just four hours one night had higher levels of cortisol the next night, making it hard for them to get back on track.
It’s a classic catch-22: You need sleep to de-stress but are too frazzled to turn in, and the lack of rest makes you even more tense. Break free of this draining cycle with the latest research and expert advice.
