What are the connections between sleep and mental health?   The way disrupted sleep can affect mental health issues — and vice versa — is so well-known and age-old that this trope is ingrained in our classics of literature. From Don Quixote to Shakespeare’s Macbeth, cautionary tales about how poor sleep can damage mental health – as well as the reverse being true — are many and varied.   Fast forward to the present day, and one thing I keep getting asked about is how sleep and mental health interact with one another.

Luckily, there are ways to have your digital cake and eat it too.   Catching up on social media, or even a few last emails, can be a tempting way to clock off for the night.

So, if you are looking to start a family, it may help to look at your sleep, to optimise your testosterone and hence fertility.   What does testosterone have to do with sleep?

Watching television can put our minds into a trance-like state, allowing us to begin to switch off. With the distraction of the show’s storyline, combined with the speed of the changing pictures, we are gradually coaxed into a hypnotic alpha brainwave state. For those of us with a busy monkey mind, it can work better than meditation, because of the distraction of the storyline. So, if we are not skilled at slowing our minds, or ..read more
