Depression and Sleep: Do You Have Bad Habits?

Merely Me Health Guide

    Hi everybody!


    How's it going?


    Let's talk about sleep.  One extremely important thing which has helped me with both my depression and anxiety is getting enough sleep.  Let's find out if you have any habits which disrupt your sleep.


    The following questions come from "The Anxiety & Depression Workbook for Dummies" by Charles H. Elliot and Laura L. Smith. 


    • What do you eat or drink in the few hours before going to bed? 
    • About how long does it take you to get to sleep?
    • How many hours of sleep do you get each night on average?
    • Do you worry a lot about not getting enough sleep?
    • Do you have nightmares?  Are they waking you up at night?

      Your answers to these questions will tell you the quality of sleep you are getting each night.

      Now...let's talk about the week.
