Your quality of sleep every night has a major impact on your well-being and can affect the way you think, feel, and act. Lack of sleep can take a toll on you both physically and mentally, negatively impacting things such as daytime energy, productivity, weight, and emotional balance. Some common signs and symptoms of sleeplessness include excessive daytime fatigue, irregular breathing or increased movement during sleep, and difficulty falling and staying asleep.
Chronic sleeplessness can also affect you in the long run by increasing your risk of health problems such as:
- high blood pressure
- heart disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Certain cancers
If you are unable to sleep on a regular basis, you may fall into a habit of relying on unhealthy sleep aids to get a good night's sleep. While these may be a quick fix in the short term, these substances actually make your sleep problems worse in the long-run.
Most adults have trouble falling asleep because they feel worried or nervous. Some anxiety problems that can lead to sleeplessness include:
- Excessive worrying about future events
- Feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities
- Getting caught up thinking about past events
- A general feeling of being overstimulated
