Early wakeup reduces depression says a study:- Waking up early in the morning will reduce the risk of major depression by 23 percent as per a recent study which is published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry. The research was conducted on 8,40,000 people at the University of Colorado Boulder and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. It revealed that chronotype: a person's ability to sleep will have an influence on the risk of depression. There is an impact on the sleep schedule after the pandemic because of the changed schedules and lifestyle. Celine Vetter, assistant professor of integrative physiology at CU Boulder said that the sleep schedules will have an impact on the depression.
Celine Vetter said that one-hour earlier sleep timing is directly associated with the lower risk of depression. All those who sleep later and wake up late are twice likely to suffer from depression than others. The mood disorders will disrupt the sleep patterns. A long term study of the nurses was conducted in 2018 and 32,000 nurses participated in the research and the early risers are 27 percent less likely to have depression. Iyas Daghlas said that they used Mendelian randomization for genetic associations to help the cause and the impact.
