Why feelings of depression at night are no reason for concern

20 Aug

Between two and three o’clock in the morning we experience a dip in our circulation, leaving it in a more fragile state. Our mental state and moods are also at their lowest point in the second half of the night and that is why almost anyone who is awake at this time experiences a mini-depression. This is also the time when anyone at work will make the most mistakes and when a conspicuously high number of accidents take place. If you are awake in the early hours and are suffering from depressive thoughts, the reason is that the body is producing the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is there to control our day and night rhythm, but it is also a “feel-bad” hormone that lowers your mood and makes you pessimistic.

This is just one of innumerable gems that you will find in our sleep guide, „A good day begins at night – greater quality of life thanks to healthy sleep“ published by the billerbeck “SLEEP AND HEALTH” Foundation in conjunction with the Beobachter.

Three misconceptions about sleep

5 Aug

In our guide “A good day begins at night – greater quality of life thanks to healthy sleep”*, we reveal some common misconceptions about sleep.

  • Early to bed, early to rise is healthy. This well-known saying only applies to early birds. If you’re more of a night owl, this lifestyle will only make your life harder.
  • I only really sleep well if I sleep right through. This isn’t true. Waking up several times a night is perfectly normal as long as you go back to sleep quickly.
  • A bad day follows a bad night’s sleep. This doesn’t have to be the case. Even if you have slept badly, you are normally able to perform to 80% of your normal capacity.

*Good sleep is the key to a good life! To get to the bottom of this mystery, we founded the billerbeck “SLEEP AND HEALTH” Foundation 30 years ago. Specialists from various fields have been providing us with the results of their research ever since and are the authors of our sleep guide in conjunction with the Beobachter.
