You've tried everything, changed your diet, turned off the T.V., and stopped taking work calls, but nothing seems to work. You feel tired during the day and when you lay down at night you still can't stop thinking about things. Maybe you don't even know what's causing it?
You spend more than one third of your life sleeping.
Though the initial reason might be to get rest and refresh, a good night's sleep has multiple purposes. It heals and rejuvenates you after a long, trying day — a good excuse for channel surfing.
This involves boosting cell production, memory consolidation and regulating blood sugar, leading to better concentration and energy during the daytime. While these are great, #scientificwellness tells us that there is much more that we could be doing while in “The Land of Nod”. Adequate sleep can decrease risk of hypertension, diabetes, depression, obesity and even heart disease. Unfortunately, insomnia affects millions on a daily basis (why?).
If you've ever experienced a night of tossing and turning, battling to get your brain to shutdown, then you know how frustrating insomnia can be.
Insomnia can be caused by several things.
Stress and anxiety are some of the main causes of insomnia.
Lifestyle habits, such as having an irregular sleep schedule or consuming caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol late in the day, can also cause insomnia.
Epidemiological studies showed about one in three people suffer from varying degrees of insomnia. Insomnia is present when we find it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep long enough to make us feel refreshed the day after.
Scientists view insomnia as a state where the brain is unable to stop being awake and can be caused by both psychological and medical conditions.
Insomnia could be represented by one or more of the following symptoms:
Difficulty falling asleep
Waking up often in the night and having trouble going back to sleep
Waking up prematurely in the morning
Problems with concentration or memory
When stress gets the better of us, anxiety or depression takes over or even some medical conditions that rev up the nervous system causing sleeplessness.
It is recommended that we get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night to function well the following day. When this does not happen, symptoms like fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration can occur as well as mood swings.
The consequences of sleep loss can lead to serious health issues such as a compromised immune system, high blood pressure and stroke. Lack of sleep affects our physical health adversely and also impacts relationships with friends, family and colleagues.
