Recent research indicates that insomnia has a high occurrence in people suffering from depression and anxiety. Where as it is not clear whether insomnia triggers the onset of symptoms, lack of sleep can certainly add to the overall feeling of being unable to cope or finding the motivation and energy to make the necessary changes.

Therapy that looks to change the sleep patterns through relaxation techniques, behavioual interventions and cognitive awareness have been successful in not only giving the sufferer a better nights sleep, but also in finding relief from depressive feelings and worry. Waking up feeling refreshed can make an enormous difference to your life.
