This week, I wanted to focus on sleep. I have been having trouble sleeping lately myself, and so I figured it may be a good idea to bring that frustration and issue into the light. Many people either get too much sleep or not enough sleep and it can severely affect their day to day lives. If you are someone who falls into one of these categories, you will know exactly what I mean when I say it can be extremely infuriating to try and regulate your circadian rhythm.
Getting too much sleep is not as easy to solve as people may think it is. Sometimes you cannot just simply set an alarm and get up with it. If your body stays sluggish and lethargic, then simply going through the motions of staying awake may become nearly impossible. It also isn’t healthy to deprive yourself of the sleep you feel that you need. Always see a doctor if you think that you are sleeping too much.
Not getting enough sleep is something that many people are familiar with. Personally, I haven’t been sleeping due to pain. While many may simply take pain or sleeping medication, others either do not wish to resort to this option or cannot due to other medications they may be on. If you have not been getting the sleep that you need, it may be causing other problems or even a worsening of the issues you already suffer from. This can include things like pain levels or weight issues and can be extremely difficult to treat if the cycle continues.
