Don't Let Insomnia Keep You Up at Night!

About one third to one half of the general population is affected by some type of insomnia. Insomnia can be described as difficulty falling asleep or difficulty maintaining sleep. Nearly all adults have had experience with some type of insomnia at some point throughout their lives, but many never seek treatment for it.

Because our needs for sleep differ so greatly from person to person, a quantitative definition of insomnia is difficult to state. Some people function best on six hours of sleep each night, while others perform at their best only after getting at least nine hours of sleep.

Regardless of what your individual needs are, there’s no doubt that you have experienced an inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at one time or another, and you know what it’s like to feel sleep deprived the next day.

Insomnia is generally categorized as transient, in which the sleeplessness lasts for less than a week, short-term, in which the symptoms last for one to three weeks, and chronic, when the symptoms last three weeks or longer.

A number of underlying factors can contribute to insomnia, including anxiety, stress, depression and other psychological disorders, alcohol, medications, sickness, irregular or changing sleep habits, work schedules, or environment, and even exercising too late at night. For some people suffering from insomnia, it can be difficult to determine the cause. In these cases, an actual sleep disorder, such as restless leg syndrome or circadian rhythm disorder, is normally to blame.

Insomnia affects all areas of your life, not only your sleep. A lack of sleep, even a lack of restful sleep, can lead to an inability to focus during the day, decreased performance, irritability, and further stress. The result can be a feedback effect, where insomnia causes problems during the day that lead to a further inability to fall asleep at night.

Even transient and acute insomnia can become a significant problem if left unaddressed. These shorter-term types of insomnia can easily develop into chronic insomnia.

If you have experienced insomnia, even for only a few nights, take action now to develop a holistic approach to dealing with what could become a long-term problem. In any case, there is a positive, holistic approach to dealing with insomnia that could help you on your way to full nights of restful sleep once again.
