What is Insomnia?
Insomnia is a common sleep disorder which affects one’s ability to fall asleep or stay asleep throughout the night. It can impact our moods and the level of energy we have to perform our daily duties. As sleeping patterns vary for most individuals, insomnia is not determined by how many hours of sleep one has but by the quality of their sleep.
There are two types of insomnia: primary and secondary. Primary insomnia is simply lack of sleep and is not caused by any health concerns. Secondary insomnia is generally caused as a result of a health issue such as depression, anxiety or illness. Other factors which can contribute to insomnia may be certain medications, stresses from one’s personal life, illness, environmental factors or changes in work routines.
Do I have insomnia?
If you find yourself struggling to fall asleep or waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to get back to sleep, its likely you could be suffering from insomnia. You may even find yourself waking up earlier than usual and constantly feeling tired. Symptoms of insomnia may include sleepiness during the day, lack of concentration and irritability.
If this occurs only occasionally then it’s likely you are suffering from acute insomnia which is only a short-term case and is easily manageable. However, if you frequently struggle to sleep and you find yourself stuck in a poor sleeping pattern, you may be suffering from chronic insomnia. It is important to reach out to a professional in this circumstance as if left unaddressed, could lead to serious health concerns.
How can naturopathy cure stress?
There are a number of simple steps you can take to assist with your insomnia;
Consider your diet. If you are an excessive coffee drinker, this could be the main cause of your insomnia. Reduce your caffeine intake and avoid consuming any caffeinated drinks or foods high in sugar before bedtime.
Can you improve your sleeping environment? Practicing good sleeping habits is an efficient way to cure insomnia. Ensure that your bedroom is quiet, and you limit the amount of bright lights and electronics in your room. Try to avoid using your phone or tablet at least one hour prior to your bedtime.
