The Importance of Sleep

I cannot stress this enough, getting the proper amount of sleep is crucial; especially, if you face the challenges associated with conditions that involve difficulty regulating  emotions. This is something I know first hand.

Right now I am feeling a bit run down physically because I did not sleep well last night and I feel on edge and irritable. I still have control of myself, but it is harder to keep that control than usual. The main difference is the lack of good sleep last night.

A number of studies have shown that people who do not get enough sleep have increased trouble regulating their moods. This is of course compounded for those of us who struggle with control on our good days.

A proper amount of sleep lets the body unwind and recharge. It helps you face the day and all the challenges, struggles and frustrations that come with it.

Here is an article on the importance of sleep from the American Psychological Association (APA): http://www.apa.org/topics/sleep/why.aspx
