How Sleep Impacts Children's Mental Health
Sleep plays a huge role in children's mental health. Sleep is related to kids' energy levels (not enough can make them hyperactive!) and lack of sleep is also related to increased depression or anxiety symptoms.
And of course, sleep is important for their focus and motivation with their daily activities - school, sports and extra curriculars.
