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. The human being is not built to withstand prolonged stress and actually thrives on regular periods of “down-time” or relaxation. In fact, many people today actually 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 we experience good sleep, we awake feeling refreshed and re-energised. People who have a sleep problem and regularly get disturbed sleep can feel lethargic, low mood, irritability, etc.
Consequences Of Insomnia / Sleep Problems
Inability to get to sleep, or disturbed sleep, can cause a host of unwanted side effects such as depression, becoming run down, experiencing concentration problems, and becoming generally negative and irritable. Lack of sleep can also elevate the stress hormone cortisol, which can affect your mood, and sleep deprivation can also cause you to gain weight due to hormonal changes. In extreme cases, your sleep problem or chronic insomnia can negatively affect your life expectancy.
Why Do You Suffer From Insomnia
Insomnia is often caused by your mind’s inability to switch off. This is a process called “rumination”, where you constantly run over the worries and cares of the day in your mind, or even worry about upcoming events. By contrast, people who sleep normally unconsciously associate going to the bedroom with going to sleep very quickly, and leaving any thoughts or worries or cares outside the bedroom door.
