How lack of sleep affects your mental health

Sleep and mental health are closely linked: mental health conditions can affect your sleep, and lack of sleep can have a bad impact on your mental health.

According to Aviva's research, more than half of all adults in the United Kingdom sleep for less than 6 hours every night with just 17% getting the necessary amount of sleep (the NHS's recommendation of 8 hours per night). As a result, it's critical to comprehend the influence that the lack of sleep can have on one's health, especially mental health and well-being.
