Sleep and mental health
Not sleeping well? You could get into a vicious cycle of lack of sleep with increasing stress levels and low mood which could lead to you experiencing a mental health condition.
Getting enough sleep is crucial for your mental health. We’ve created lots of information, tools and advice to help you sleep better. And you don’t even have to be a Bupa customer.
Better sleep, better mental health
A lot of people struggle to get a good night’s sleep. Perhaps it takes you ages to drop off, or you’re awake several times in the night, or you wake up far too early. If this is your normal, we can help.
It’s important because the link between sleep and mental health is very strong. And besides depression, anxiety and stress, lack of sleep can lead to serious physical conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Poor sleep also shortens your life expectancy.
