At the top of most (mental) health lists I see recommendations to sleep.

Yes, at the top of my list of lofty life goals is a very pedestrian one: sleep. Lack of sleep can devastate a person’s mental health and without consistent rest, the line between emotional stability and craziness can be slim. (See postpartum depression, for one example.)

First, get enough sleep. Then you can start to deal with everything.
