Less than 8 hours of sleep increases risk of depression, anxiety
According to the research, not getting enough sleep is associated with intrusive, repetitive thoughts.
“We found that people in this study have some tendencies to have thoughts get stuck in their heads, and their elevated negative thinking makes it difficult for them to disengage with the negative stimuli that we exposed them to,” said Meredith Coles, Binghamton University Professor of Psychology. “While other people may be able to receive negative information and move on, the participants had trouble ignoring it.”
