Insomnia and Depression
“If you were to follow people with insomnia and no history of depression, they would be four times more likely to develop depression than individuals with no history of insomnia,” says R. Robert Auger, MD, a sleep specialist at the Mayo Center for Sleep Medicine in Rochester, Minn. This increased risk persists even decades later. “Insomnia is one of the ways to identify depression, and I make sure all of my patients get depression and anxiety screening,” says Susan Zafarlotfi, PhD, Institute for Sleep and Wake Disorders, Hackensack University Medical Center.
Sleeping is vital to your health and overall well-being. Regular exercise and healthy eating is one of the best ways to regulate your sleep and studies have proven that it’s more effective than most depression meds.
