Our researchers are looking at sleep quality as well as thought patterns and mood. We aim to understand the relationship between these concepts with the aim of figuring out ways in which people can improve a vicious cycle of lack of sleep and low mood.
Some negative thought patterns are known to be associated with low mood and with sleep problems. Low mood and sleep have a bidirectional relationship where lack of sleep can make you feel low, but similarly low mood can disturb your sleep.
We're investigating whether negative thought patterns may worsen this relationship, and if other thought patterns may be more helpful in stopping this cycle from continuing.
You must be:
- aged 18 years and over
- able to do both parts at the agreed times (30 minutes before bed and the next day at noon)
We are recruiting for this study until Friday 7 August 2020.
