Insomnia & Sleep Concerns
Lack of sleep certainly can make you grumpy or lethargic. Did you know that on-going insomnia or lack of sleep has a negative impact on many aspects of your mental health? Sleep serves a restorative and homeostatic function, as well as a thermoregulation and energy conservation function. Insomnia is often dismissed as ‘normal’ by many people, but it’s not. Research shows that sleep is absolutely imperative for our well-being, and that most people need 7-9 hours of consecutive sleep per night.
Some common symptoms of insomnia may include:
- Difficulty paying attention
- Bad mood
- Increased food consumption
- Poor memory
