Falling asleep may seem impossible when you're wide awake at 3 am. Restless & frustrated, you toss and turn as the hours go by until it is time to wake up and go through another long day at work. Poor sleep quality impairs your concentration, memory & mood. It can also change how your brain interprets hunger, leaving you to overeat and gain weight.
Whether it's trouble falling asleep or simply staying asleep, poor sleep habits are considered one of the most common problems in our society. You may not realize this but losing one night's sleep a week continuously can lead to significant sleep deprivation. Most importantly, what many people don't know is that sleep deprivation is linked to a number of health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and chronic pain.
Major sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and narcolepsy are very debilitative to health and require medical treatment. Receiving a proper diagnosis and good management is essential. Sleep associated movement disorders can also cause significant stress on relationships, getting advice and help is what you need.
Our busy-lifestyles and demanding careers cause us to interrupt our circadian rhythm with caffeine, medications, work stress/anxiety and suppression of melatonin (a sleep hormone made in the brain) by the bright light from late-night television, computers, tablets and phones. But even with all these possible triggers for poor sleep, the truth is, you have more control over your sleep than you realize.
We at The Health Boutique have identified various habits and practices—medically termed “sleep hygiene"—that make the difference between restlessness and snoozing. Our goal is to help maximize the hours you spend sleeping & teach you restorative sleep habits that will help you over the years to come.
