SLEEP AND WAKE UP EARLY; BID FAREWELL TO DEPRESSION

Numerous studies have proven a relation between the chronic disease depression and sleep. A new study has found that maintain the distance from depression is as simple as jumping out of the bed early in the morning. The study reveals that ladies who sleep early and wake up early are less likely to suffer from depression. These women are middle aged women. The study was done on more than 30000 females which discovered the relation between the chornotype, or the sleeping and waking up routine. It proved that despite numerous natural factors like exposure to light and work routines, the risk of depression in slightly influenced by chronotype. The leading author of the study said that “Our results show a modest link between chronotype and depression risk. This could be related to the overlap in genetic pathways associated with chronotype and mood.” The researchers discovered that night owls or the people who sleep late at night, have less chances of getting married, living alone and also be smokers. These people also have more chances of irregular sleeping patterns. The research found that the people who wake up early had approximately 27% less chances of being depressed. The people who woke up late had approximately 5% to 6% more chances of suffering. The sleeping and waking up routine of the person is also determined by his genes. Some other studies have shown that specific types of genes which include PER2 and RORA also impact the rise and sleep routine which eventually influences the risk of depression. The expert who conducted the research laid emphasis on the chronotype which is an autonomous factor which affects depression. The leading author of the study said,

“Being an early type seems to beneficial, and you can influence how early you are. Try to get enough sleep, exercise, spend time outdoors, dim the lights at night, and try to get as much light by day as possible.”
