There's a reason people look forward to sleeping in or sneaking in a quick nap during the day - sleep is a wonderful thing! Unfortunately, sleep can sometimes elude people. If you or someone you know is having trouble sleeping our online therapists can help. >
Having trouble falling asleep is a tricky issue because it can be attributed to a lot of different things. Sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea can cause you to wake up throughout the night or cause you to be unable to fall asleep in the first place.
But disorders aren't the only things that can prevent a good night's sleep. For instance, bad habits, like drinking alcohol before bed can cause you to have a bad night's sleep, or if you have a partner who snores, you may wake up multiple times a night. Other psychological factors, such as anxiety, often contribute to a lack of sleep. As you can see, pinning down the reason for lack of sleep can be complicated, but we can help identify the source.
Lack of sleep can cause an array of health issues. Short-term issues like lack of mental clarity, irritability, and loss of productivity are some of the more obvious effects of sleep deprivation. The long-term consequences tend to be even worse, as lack of sleep is often linked to an increased risk of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. That's why it's important to pinpoint the cause of your sleep deprivation, so you can get on the right path to a good night's rest.
A good night's sleep is an essential part of living a healthy life. If you're having trouble sleeping, don't be discouraged. The therapists at 7 Cups are happy to speak with you and help you find the right solution for your sleep problems.
