Research suggests that about a third of adults suffer from insomnia in the UK, however more recent findings indicate that insomnia may actually be a larger problem than once thought. During the Covid pandemic more people have started struggling with poor sleep or lack of it altogether.
Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder reported and it is characterised by the inability of falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night. This is a condition where you have difficulty in getting enough sleep to function well. This affects us all at some point in our lives and sporadic episodes are not of too much concern. The troubles appear when not being able to get enough rest happens with regularity.
Insomnia is very often a symptom of another problem such as depression, anxiety, stress, or an underlying health condition or medications. Insomnia can often be related to your lifestyle choices such as amount of caffeine intake, jet lag, or even poor or lack of exercise.
On the other end of the spectrum we have hypersomnia which is actually too much sleep. This is characterised by excessive sleepiness and difficulty staying awake during the day. It can also manifest itself as too much sleep however not restful.
Did you know that sleep deprivation can lead to lack of concentration, weight gain and anxiety? Not getting enough sleep on a regular basis can make you feel irritable and makes it difficult to function normally.
Lack of sleep can slow down your reactions, make you feel more emotional and everyday tasks can seem to take more energy. Not getting the necessary rest can be confusing for your body. This can further affect sleep quality and it becomes an ongoing negative cycle.
