Are you tossing and turning night after night, unable to find the restful sleep you desperately need? Everyone has those nights…but are they becoming more chronic for you?
Have those sleepless nights gone from once or twice a month to almost every night for months? Sure, you can get through the day with energy drinks and maybe a little help with substances to knock out for an hour or two.
But chronic insomnia and persistent sleep disorders aren’t an inconvenience.
Insomnia is more than just a few restless nights; it’s a serious health concern that can impact every aspect of your well-being.
Chronic Insomnia Leads To Health Risks!
There are some insomnia symptoms you probably are aware of:
Cognitive Decline. Insomnia can impair memory, concentration, and problem-solving abilities. Over time, it may contribute to cognitive decline because your brain needs deep sleep to perform a “cleansing” that washes out free radicals and plaque build up.
Increased Irritability. The “little things” start to bother you more. People start to bother you more. Even you start to bother you more!
But chronic insomnia and persistent sleep problems can lead to even more long term health risks:
Chronic Fatigue. Insomnia leads to constant fatigue, impairing your daily performance, decision-making, and even your ability to drive safely. It’s not just about feeling tired; it can impact every aspect of your life since your bodily functions aren’t getting the recovery and repair associated with quality sleep.
Mental Health Concerns. Studies have linked insomnia to an increased risk of anxiety and depression. Lack of sleep can exacerbate existing mental health issues and create new ones. Recent, peer-reviewed studies indicate that being awake and alone after midnight can increase negative emotional thinking!
Weakened Immunity. Quality sleep is essential for a robust immune system because this is when your body strengthens T-cells. Insomnia weakens your body’s defenses, making you more susceptible to illnesses.
Heart Health. Long-term insomnia is associated with an elevated risk of cardiovascular problems, including hypertension and heart disease.
Unhealthy Weight Gain. Poor sleep disrupts the balance of hormones that regulate appetite, often leading to weight gain and obesity.
