Many of us wake up in the morning, immediately rev up to 100mph and spend the whole day at that speed until we eventually go to bed. However, a human being is not built to withstand prolonged stress. We actually thrive on regular periods of “down-time” or relaxation. Do you suffer from sleep deprivation or sleep problems? Insomnia is a very common complaint in modern day Ireland with as many as one in three people having some form of sleep problem.
Sleep is a time when our bodies regenerate and repair themselves, both mentally and physically. When you experience good sleep, you awake feeling refreshed and re-energised. if you have a sleep problem and regularly get disturbed sleep, you can feel lethargic, low mood, irritability, etc.
Consequences Of Insomnia / Sleep Problems
If you can’t get to sleep, or have disturbed sleep, this can cause a host of unwanted side effects. You may get depression, become run down, experiencing concentration problems, and become generally negative and irritable. If you have a consistent lack of sleep this can also elevate the stress hormone cortisol. This can affect your mood. You may also gain weight due to hormonal changes because of sleep deprivation. In extreme cases, your sleep problem or chronic insomnia can negatively affect your life expectancy.
Why Do You Suffer From Insomnia
Your mind’s inability to switch off causes insomnia. if you constantly run over the worries and cares of the day in your mind, this is called “rumination”. You also ruminate if you are worrying about future events. By contrast, people who sleep normally unconsciously associate going to the bedroom with going to sleep very quickly. They easily leave any thoughts or worries or cares outside the bedroom door.
