HOW DOES LACK OF SLEEP AFFECT US
Lack of sleep can be very distressing and can impact on our work and personal lives, leading us to become demotivated and lack interest in areas of our lives we used to get pleasure from.
We become short tempered with loved ones because of fatigue and our performance at work may suffer. It can also make us angry, tearful, frustrated and lose concentration.
We all need different amounts of sleep, the average being between 7 to 8 hours, some people may be able to cope with around 4 to 5 hours.
Whatever the problem, whether it be finding it hard to fall asleep, waking up throughout the night, unable to go back to sleep, or a combination of both, you just might as a result be feeling constantly fatigued and exhausted, it may even be causing health problems.
WHY DO WE STRUGGLE TO SLEEP
In many cases struggling to sleep or waking up numerous times a night is often due to worry and anxiety from past or current issues. It may be a result of a stressful event such as a bereavement or difficulties with money or at work. It can also be the result of poor routine or sleeping environment. If you have been dealing with this for a long time it can become a habit that needs to be broken.
