Body Clock Linked To Mood Disorders (via BBC News)

Leave a comment

This report by James Gallagher, a health and science correspondent for BBC news is based on a Lancet Psychiatry study of 91,000 people “found a disrupted body clock was linked with depression, bipolar disorder and other problems.”
Significantly, the report does note that “the study cannot tell if the disruption is causing the mental illness or is just a symptom of it”.
I’ve pretty much locked in my sleep times now, waking the same time every morning without an alarm (and getting up), and generally going to sleep within an hour or so of my preferred time most nights.
I think it has helped my well-being.
I didn’t really ever have trouble sleeping, but I am more rested and less tired these days.
