A new study looked at the consequences of sleeping fewer than six hours for eight consecutive nights – the minimum duration of sleep that experts say is necessary to support optimal health in average adults.
Researchers found that three consecutive nights of sleep loss can have a negative impact on both mental and physical health.
They also found that sleep deprivation can lead to an increase in anger, frustration, and anxiety, and reduced physical wellbeing, including gastrointestinal and respiratory problems.

A recent research study indicates that, "...similar clinical outcomes can be achieved via the telephone as are obtained in face-to-face [therapy]".
Furthermore, the alliance between therapist and client, as well as levels of empathy, attentiveness, participation and openess, are equivalent as in face-to-face therapy.
