This research paper delves into the intricate relationship between sleep deprivation and emotional regulation, aiming to shed light on the impact of insufficient or poor-quality sleep on emotional well-being. In a modern world where sleep is often sacrificed for the demands of daily life, understanding the consequences of sleep deprivation on emotional regulation is of paramount importance. A total 50 people participated in this study. The participants were drawn from all over India. To measure Hours of Sleep we asked open ended question related to Sleeping Hours and to measure Emotion Regulation we used Emotion Regulation Questionnaire by Gross & John (2003). Our study employs Pearson correlation analysis and linear regression to examine the link between sleep duration and emotional regulation. The Pearson correlation coefficient of .607, supported by a remarkably low p-value of .000, reveals a strong positive correlation between these variables. Linear regression analysis further solidifies this connection, explaining that approximately 36% of the variance in emotional regulation can be attributed to sleep duration.
