If you are tired but can’t sleep, you may be suffering from insomnia. Being unable to sleep can affect many aspects of your life in a negative way.
Insomnia is a serious sleep disorder that is identified when individuals are unable to sleep at least three nights a week in a regular fashion, during a timeframe of three months. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, it is more commonly found in women than in men, and it affects from 15 to 20% of adults.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has also explored the reasons for not being able to fall asleep. According to a recent study they conducted, one of the side effects of stress could be insomnia. This is due to coping mechanisms that individuals use when under pressure; when affected by stress, people turn to drugs and alcohol, use media as a distraction and disengage without confronting the stressor.
Even though there is no way in which we can prevent stressful events from happening, reducing stress is possible if we do not engage in negative coping mechanisms and maladaptive behaviors. According to the studies, mindfulness therapies can also help in coping with the difficult onset of sleep. By reducing the heavy side effects of stress, we can fall asleep more easily.
