This is pretty heinous. Like, ethically misguided at best. I just wonder how many desperate and impressionable teens are going to read this and consider adjusting their sleep schedule to one where they are not getting enough. And based off what evidence…?
Serious, this is without a doubt one of the worst posts I have ever seen under the psychology tag. Or on Tumblr. “Sleep less so you are more numb to your emotions and your depression will get better.”
I understand sleeping less in the context of depression can be beneficial advice under the supervision of a therapist/doctor (e.g., for individuals who sleep 14 hours per day), but the point of this is clearly to get such an insufficient amount of sleep that you become numb to your emotions, which to me hints at some level of sleep deprivation.
This is disgusting.
Oh man I have thoughts on these kinds of blogs. RARELY do I reblog things from fact blogs - for any facts, not just psych - because I don’t have the patience or time to see if they’re supported by evidence, or ‘pop psych’ which only serves to make someone interested.
Also, sleep deprivation is bad for non-depressed individuals, so why is it suddenly okay for depressed ones? Especially in teenagers, where their minds are already fragile in development.
Plus there’s the most glaring thing: being numb to your emotions. The key to mood disorder management isn’t attempts at numbing ones emotions. When you numb yourself to ANY emotion, it is unhealthy, even in a mood disorder. To actively try to stop feeling any particular “bothersome” emotion is to cut off a part of human behavior
In depression, yes you are probably sadder than non-depressed individuals… but the solution to that is therapy and possibly medication, but trying to not be sad AT ALL. Sadness is a good thing, as is anger, frustration, even stress. Excessive amounts of these things are harmful, but emotions aren’t just ‘there’; they are survival tactics. They allow us to relate to others.
