Insomnia. Stress related or even a change in diet, anything can trigger it off. And once it sets in, it can affect your sleep pattern for days, even months.
60 million Americans suffer from this every year – waking up, or not, and feeling constantly tired but not knowing how to sleep can be very frustrating. Insomnia can also increase with age.
Treating insomnia is required to stop it from causing other health concerns. Here’s what happens with insomnia:
- Increased risk of medical conditions such as stroke, seizures, inflammation and weight gain
- Mental disorders are imminent such as depression, anxiety and frustration
- Loss of focus, direction in life and purpose
The lack of energy during the day and then no sleep during the night will eventually take its toll on you.
Things you may need to cut down on:
Caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, drugs, cold medicines and diet pills are a few.
Talk to your doctor – but before you do, also make small changes in your life such as your diet, stop having caffeine for instance after 8pm or even earlier if you’re easily affected. Find ways to relax – less usage of electronic devices before sleep. Read a book instead. Don’t lower your life span by not getting enough sleep. Take the steps today and make the changes you need. Your body will thank you.
