Sleep experts say you can relax and sleep better after getting a sleeppy night.
A study published online in the journal Sleep Research on Thursday found people who slept through the night had fewer anxiety and mood swings than those who slept until midnight.
Sleep research has shown that people who fall asleep during the night may be more likely to suffer from insomnia later in the day, and to develop chronic conditions.
Sleep experts said that the findings support the idea that people should stay up late to make sure they’re fully rested.
They also suggested that people whose nights were too sleepless may want to seek treatment for insomnia.
The research, conducted by the Sleep Medicine Research Institute, looked at the association between sleeplessness and depression and anxiety in nearly 2,000 adults.
Sleep researchers at the Sleep Research Institute found that people with sleepless nights reported feeling more depressed and anxious than those with no sleepless episodes.
Some people who reported sleepless spells reported a feeling of being unable to relax, said co-author of the study, Andrew S. Miller, Ph.
D. “Sleep is a natural state of being.
It’s not something you have to train or practice,” he said.
“It’s not like you have a routine that you’re following.
It happens naturally.”
Sleep researchers also found that the longer people stayed up, the more anxious they were, as measured by a questionnaire called the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale.
About half of those who stayed up to get a full night of sleep had higher scores than those that did not.
A person who stayed for a full 24 hours was rated at 1.29 out of 5, and a person who slept for one hour and 45 minutes was rated 1.04 out of 10.
“You can actually take that to heart,” said Dr. Miller.
“If you’re really having trouble falling asleep, just say, ‘I can’t sleep,'” he said, adding that it may help them get through the next day.
He added that it’s not unusual for people to have a sleeptown or a hangover.
Some studies have shown that alcohol use is associated with a decrease in sleep.
But the study does not show that drinking more alcohol or drugs also causes sleepless effects.
“We don’t know whether it’s the amount of alcohol or the drugs that causes sleeptoughness, but it seems to be a common finding,” Miller said.
Researchers hope to see a link between alcohol and anxiety symptoms in people who get more than one sleepless spell.
“This study was the first study to look at how sleepless sleep is associated both with anxiety and depression,” said study co-lead author, Andrew C. S. Riedel, Ph, an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles.
“Alcohol and depression are often linked to a decrease of sleep and sleep deprivation,” he added.
The researchers also included a list of 11 stress-related conditions that included depression, anxiety and alcohol abuse, including stress-induced headaches and sleepless attacks. “
While sleepless symptoms are generally related to a decreased sleep quality, we think it’s important to look beyond that to the relationship between sleeptaying and anxiety,” he continued.

Sleep is a naturally occurring state of mind, so it’s unlikely that the sleep disorders themselves are linked to alcohol or drug use, said Drs.
Miller and Simeon C. Bensoussan, Ph., a professor of sleep medicine at the Harvard Medical School.
They are working on a paper that will focus on how sleep affects the immune system, which may explain the links between sleeps and autoimmune disorders.
“For the next few years, we’re hoping to have some evidence to suggest the sleep-deprived individuals are actually at risk for autoimmune disease, particularly at the moment,” Simeen Bensoulian, M.D., director of the Division of Sleep Medicine and the lead author of the paper, said in a statement.
“These are early studies, and we don’t yet know whether they are showing causation or not.”
