How are you doing and coping? I hope you are prioritizing self-care, having some fun, and staying healthy. This month I am sharing an excellent and detailed resource for coping with a variety of mental health challenges related to COVID-19, social distancing guidelines and recent changes in our daily schedules. I am hopeful that this resource will be helpful and supportive.

Lack of sleep decreases activity in the frontal lobe of the brain - the area responsible for logic, decision-making, and impulse control - while increasing responsiveness in the amygdala, the area that processes reward and emotion. The combination of less impulse control and greater reward makes it more difficult to resist temptation, even if you know the choice is not healthy.

Apparently, lack of sleep increases the secretion of a hormone called ghrelin , this hormone sends a hunger signal to the brain. At the same time, the level of leptin , another hormone involved, helps to suppress appetite; so when leptin goes down, the desire to eat increases. We will look for something to satiate that appetite and many times what we have at hand are carbohydrates or refined, that is, we will increase the intake of precisely foods rich in fat and sugars.

Without going into further medical detail, ghrelin, leptin, and insulin work like switches on a thermostat. For example, in a heater, the thermostat monitors the level of heat in the room.When the room is too cold the thermostat turns on the heater. When the temperature level rises too high, the thermostat turns off the heater and this allows the temperature to drop again. Leptin levels work the same way.
