Scientists from U.C. Berkeley institute have conducted a study that proves lack of sufficient sleep during the night will cause excessive worrying during the day.
The original study has been revealed within the Journal of neurobiology of the University of california. It offers us new data about people that originally feel edgy and tired. Sleep deprivation intensifies anxiety by firing up regions in the brain that are connected to emotional process, the same brain activity that also happens in people with anxiety disorders. The study reveals that sleep deprivation can cause them even a lot of serious anticipatory anxiety issues that are commonly connected to sudden panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder and different mental health disorders.
Another important side of the study suggests that people who are innately predisposed to worrying excessively also are more likely to experience the exacerbation of their anxiety problems if not submitted to a regular sleep medical care and treatment.
All in all, sleep is that the most significant factor for our mental health. If this fact isn’t acknowledged especially by innate worriers the negative effects of sleep deprivation could have a lasting negative impact on their overall well being.
