Can’t get off to sleep?

Tired of lying-in bed restless?

Having trouble staying asleep?

A third of your life is spent sleeping. Good quality sleep is as food and water to survival. Sleep is our most basic human need: sleep is needed to repair and restore many vital functions in the body.

We need sleep to clear brain waste, modulate immune cells, improve memory and attention, form new brain pathways and detoxify the body.

The dreaded sleep deprivation dilemma is all too familiar. Sleep issues have become a pervasive health problem, and research shows that a lack of sleep affects everything from mental acuity to an increased risk of chronic diseases.

Insomnia is a modern-day epidemic as it affects our current modern day 24/7 society which is linked to device additions, night work or the feeling that our day-to-day life does not allow for sleep.

Circadian rhythms of sleep hormones play a primary role in quality of sleep. Does noise and air pollution or a lack of green space affect sleep?

Why is Sleep important?

Sleep is important for a number of reasons, including:

  • Physical health: Sleep helps to repair and restore the body. It also helps to regulate the immune system and reduce inflammation.
  • Mental health: Sleep helps to improve mood, concentration, and memory. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Heart health: Sleep helps to regulate blood pressure and heart rate. It also helps to reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Weight management: Sleep helps to regulate appetite and metabolism. It also helps to reduce the risk of obesity.
  • Cancer prevention: Sleep helps to protect against cancer by reducing inflammation and DNA damage.
  • Overall well-being: Sleep helps to improve overall well-being and quality of life.

The amount of sleep that adults need varies from person to person, but most adults need around 7-8 hours of sleep per night. However, some people may need more or less sleep.

Factors that impact Sleep

There are a number of things that can interfere with sleep, including:

  • Stress: Stress can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • Anxiety: Anxiety can also make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • Depression: Depression can also make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • Pain: Pain can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • Medical conditions: Some medical conditions, such as sleep apnea, can interfere with sleep.
  • Medications: Some medications, such as cold medications and decongestants, can interfere with sleep.
