We’re often told that a good night’s sleep can make us feel better. Not only will we have greater levels of concentration, but, according to the British Psychological Society (BPS), we’ll have less anxiety and stress.  

We offer mental health support for Selby and the surrounding areas. Why not give us a call? Our phone line is open from 7 pm – 10 pm on weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Call us on (01757) 642 399. If you call before our phone lines are open and we cannot answer, you will be diverted to an NHS Helpline.

Studies have shown that poor mental health can increase your chance of having a bad night’s sleep. However, it has also been suggested that the reverse can also be true. So, when your sleep isn’t great, your mental health is likely to suffer. If you were to improve your quality of sleep, the BPS suggests that your mental health is likely to improve. It was also found that those who have physical health problems also benefited from better sleep. 

To help improve your sleep you could:

  • Turn off your phone, stop watching TV, and turn off bright lights at least a hour before you go to bed. 
  • Avoid consuming any caffeine at least 6 hours before you go to bed. 
  • Try to wake up and go to sleep at the same time every day.
  • Make sure your bed is comfortable and your bedroom is at a nice temperature. Around 20 Celsius can be ideal. 
  • Speak to your doctor if you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep.
