Matthew's curator insight, November 20, 2013 1:19 PM

The link between insomnia and depression is something thats been known for a while at least to me that is. After having just finished a broad study of sleep behavior and sleep disorders i can honestly say that sleep is the cure to an excruciatingly high amount of illnesses. A lack of sleep can raise your chances of becoming obese, developing diabetes, and of course becoming depressed. Not to mention the negative affects on your general cognition. All together, missing sleep is a bad idea, and most Americans today do not get enough sleep. Just look at the average teenager. The average teenager needs approximately eight to nine hours of sleep on top of which their cirdadian rythms keep them up late and waske them up late. Teens are meant to sleep in! but of course they are startled awake by the clanging of their alarm at a quarter till sunrise having stayed up till half past midnight studying and are expected to be functioning through their entire day to do it all again. Frankly it's tragic. Now we wonder why teenagers are constant "zombies" and depressed messes. It all leads back to sleep. Get your sleep.
