If you’re struggling to sleep properly, you‘re not on your own. Almost all of us have found ourselves lying awake at night longing for sleep. Around 1 in 3 of us are affected by sleep disorders.
- have trouble falling asleep?
- wake often in the night?
- struggle to wake up in the morning?
- feel exhausted during the day?
If your answer to any of these is yes, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder.
Insomnia, difficulty getting enough sleep to feel rested, is the most common sleep problem. Others include sleep apnoea (interrupted breathing during asleep) and narcolepsy (excessive daytime sleepiness). Persistent insomnia can have a significant impact on your quality of life.
Your sleep is vital. It heals and recharges your body and mind for the day ahead. If you don’t get the rest you need, your health, concentration and mood can suffer. On average, between 7 and 9 hours sleep per night is considered normal.
Sleep disturbances can be caused by changes in routine, stress, anxiety, hormones, medical conditions and bad sleep habits. But simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference.
For short-term sleeplessness, taking Sominex tablets at bedtime can help you drift into a fulfilling, restful sleep. If your sleep problem persists, seek medical advice, as this may be a symptom of other conditions.
