One day a week I'm sleep deprived due to work, I have to wake up very early one day a week. That day I notice I have random good feelings, tired but I feel mentally very satisfied all day and abnormally optimistic.
I do not suffer from depression or anxiety normally anyway but days with less sleep result in a happier attitude than normal.
I started thinking that sleep levels and depression may be linked, when I got home I googled it.
Study after study confirm what I just told you! If you suffer from depression then you should sleep less every day.
You may actually be depressed because you're sleeping too much.
Go a few days on 5 hours of sleep and report back on changes.

I kind of agree. I do better when I get up at the same time everyday and make myself do stuff.
But, I'll tell you what causes me more depression then anything else: Fast Food
I don't know what they put in that stuff - - - but, I do know I become lethargic with low grade depression whenever I eat it.
So, I don't any more.
