Sleeping, Breathing, and Eating

What do these three things have in common?  They are vital to our lives.

Sleep consumes, or at least it should, one third of our lives, and it has a major impact on how we live the other two thirds of our existence.

Sleep deficiency is a huge problem for millions of people.  It’s estimated that in America, 70% of the adult population struggle to fall or stay asleep at least one night a month and 11% of them have trouble sleeping every night.

Sleep related problems affect more than adults, though.  Approximately 50 – 70 million Americans of all ages and social demographics do not get enough sleep.

Losing sleep at night is maddening.

You have things to do: a family to take care of, important deadlines to meet for work, a house to clean, meals to prepare, and the list goes on.  

Not only do you need a restful night’s sleep to keep up with life, but a good night’s sleep is important for good physical and mental health.

Unfortunately, a good night’s sleep is only a dream for millions of people.

The Seriousness of a Sleepless Night

A small number of people may lose sleep as a result of their own choices like staying out too late or not wanting to miss the end of a movie or needing to see the final score of the game.  

A small number of people may lose sleep as a result of their own choices like staying out too late or not wanting to miss the end of a movie or needing to see the final score of the game.  

However, a larger number of people lose sleep due to no fault of their own, such as suffering with chronic sleep disorders.

Regardless of the reason, sleep loss can be a serious issue and can cause serious problems.  It has been proven to be the cause of on-the-job accidents as well as car accidents.

It’s also associated with poor job performance, mood swings, behavioral issues, mental and physical ailments.

The Why’s

Sleeplessness can be blamed on many things — too many to mention here, but some of the major culprits are explained below.

An obvious offender is Chronic Insomnia which affects about 10% of Americans.  But this sleep disorder usually presents the challenge of falling asleep, not staying asleep.

Staying asleep is a more common troublemaker.

One disorder that wakes people up after falling asleep is Sleep Apnea.  According to  sleephealth.org, 1 in 5 adults in America reportedly suffer from this often dangerous breathing condition that is linked to hypertension, cognitive impairment, heart disease and stroke.

Please seek professional medical advice if you believe your sleep loss is due to Sleep Apnea.

Less risky causes for sleep deficiency are related to physical and environmental surroundings.  Some of these include:

  • Room Temperature – too hot, too cold, or too humid
  • Lighting – natural light or blue light from electronics
  • Respiratory Issues – a seasonal cold, sinus problems, or a deviated septum
  • Bedding – an uncomfortable mattress, sheets, or pillow
  • Sleep Hygiene – sleeping in the same clothes you wore all day
  • Medications – prescriptions or sleep aids
  • Shift Work – difficulty sleeping due to an unusual work schedule
  • Melatonin – low levels in your body’s natural production
  • Snoring – either your own or your partners

The Solutions

Some of the why’s are easier to fix than others, of course.  You can easily buy a new pillow, turn your thermostat down, or slip into cozy pajamas.
