An estimated 30%-50% of the general population is affected by insomnia. 10% of those suffer from chronic insomnia, meaning they have no chance of sleeping for more than a couple of hours every single night.
Horrible! Everyone knows and more studies over the years have proven this, that we need a good night’s sleep. At least 8 hours is recommended to fully recharge your brain, so you can have a clear head in the morning.
What are the most common causes of insomnia?
Alcohol: Yep, believe it or not, but alcohol can certainly lead to a horrible night’s sleep. Alcohol affect people in different ways, but a growing trend we’re seeing is it affecting your sleep patterns. So lay off the booze for a while!
Caffeine: If you’re consuming anything at least 2 hours before bed that contains any levels of caffeine, you can be sure that it will have a negative affect on your sleep. Try not to drink or eat anything that has caffeine in at least 3 to 4 hours before bed, so your body can fully absorb it.
Sleeping environment: Are you close to an airport? Live in a busy metropolitan area? Live by noisy nature? These are all things that can keep you up at night and have a very big impact on your sleep.
Psychological related insomnia: This is the most popular of all and can have a very serious affect on your sleep, not to mention your productivity levels. If you’re suffering from stress, anxiety, bipolar disorder or even depression… then you are most likely going to have terrible insomnia.
