Insomnia is a frequent sleep problem that makes it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and be unable to sleep again. When you wake up, you can still be exhausted. Insomnia can deplete your energy and attitude, as well as your health, work performance, and overall quality of life.
The amount of sleep required varies by everyone, although most individuals require seven to eight hours per night.
1. A lack of sleep
Poor sleep habits include an inconsistent bedtime schedule, naps, stimulating activities before bed, an uncomfortable sleep environment, and using your bed for work, eating, or watching TV. Avoid using computers, televisions, video games, smartphones, or other screens before going to bed.
2. Psychological issues.
Anxiety disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, can make it difficult to sleep. Early waking could be a symptom of depression. Insomnia is often linked to other mental health problems.
3. Work or travel schedule
Circadian rhythms govern your sleep-wake cycle, metabolism, and body temperature by acting as an internal clock. Disrupting your body's circadian rhythms might induce insomnia. Jet lag can be caused by flying across multiple time zones, working a late or early shift, or other factors.
4. Caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol are all stimulants.
Coffee, tea, cola, and other caffeinated liquids are stimulants. If you drink them late in the afternoon or evening, they can help you stay awake at night. Another stimulant that might interrupt sleep is nicotine, which is found in tobacco products. While alcohol may assist you in falling asleep, it prevents you from sleeping deeper and frequently wakes you up during the night.
5. Indulging in excessive late-night eating
It's normal to take a small snack before bed, but too much food can cause physical discomfort when sleeping. After eating, heartburn, or a reflux of acid and food from the stomach into the esophagus, is frequent and can keep you awake.
