Excessive stress, an over-excited nervousness system, and an unhealthy diet can cause anyone to suffer from lack of sleep. Some are medically induced as is the case with those who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, chronic pain, dysfunctions of the gastrointestinal area, or hormonal imbalances, specifically those affecting the reproductive, adrenal or thyroid hormones. Sleep deprivation, especially for an extended period of time, can cause a multitude of problems.
- Unhealthy diet can include excess sugar and processed foods, as well as too much gluten and dairy for some.
- Being able to get enough sleep isn’t something you just work on at night.
- Spend some time each day in bright light.
