A recent study conducted by WHOOP shed light on the crucial relationship between sleep consistency and mental health, focusing on U.S. Army soldiers.
The study revealed that soldiers stationed at Elmendorf-Richardson Base in Alaska had lower sleep duration and consistency compared to other cohorts, indicating a higher susceptibility to sleep deprivation.
Sleep consistency was found to be strongly linked to psychological well-being, with greater consistency predicting less homesickness, positive social networks, and workplace resilience.
The study emphasized that prioritizing sleep consistency, in addition to sleep duration, can yield significant benefits for mental health.
These findings extend beyond the military, as sleep consistency has been shown to impact the well-being of individuals in high-resiliency occupations, such as trauma surgeons.
