Studies show that we spend about 26 years of our life sleeping. There’s a good reason, too. Sleep is an integral part of overall health and well-being. Think about a specific day when you got little to no sleep—you felt slow, vacant, and most likely had a difficult time staying focused. Unhealthy sleeping habits can develop in high school and follow you through to adulthood and it can be difficult to break them. It’s easy to prioritize work, school, family and entertainment before a good night’s sleep. Most adults need 7-8 hours of interrupted sleep each night to function well.


If you have been having trouble getting a good night’s rest for some time, there’s a chance you may be suffering from generalized anxiety or depression. Those with generalized anxiety can often have difficulty falling or staying asleep. Some people also report their sleep to be restless and unsatisfying. There is also a link between lack of sleep and depression. In fact, one of the most common symptoms of depression is insomnia.


If you or someone you know may be suffering from generalized anxiety or depression, take the Mental Health Association’s online screening. The screening only takes a few minutes and provides confidential results and information on where to find treatment.
