One has to ask themselves why is it that they can’t sleep. There are many reasons why this happens and about 60% of the population has problems going to sleep at night, having a restful sleep and getting enough hours of sleep to stay coherent without crashing throughout the day.
Sleep deprivation commonly known as insufficient sleep is the condition of not having enough sleep. It can be either chronic or acute. The levels of sleep deprivation can vary widely. A chronic sleep-restricted state can cause fatigue, daytime sleepiness, clumsiness and weight loss or weight gain.
We often get super busy during the day and go “on automatic” without thinking of anything else but the chores at hand. Once we stop and go to bed, all the issues, worries, unfinished tasks and fears start invading our minds and keeps us far more awake than we were during the day.
Hours can go by and our minds are still active without any hope in sight to ever being able to get to sleep.
Sleep is the most important aspect of recuperation and good health, without proper sleep, our immune system weakens, and the effectiveness of our daily performance diminishes. Lack of proper sleep can bring about panic attacks, depression, forgetfulness, unfounded fear as well as major medical issues.
