Sleeplessness and what you can do about! An inability to fall asleep can affect you in so many ways, a lack of concentration and focus, alertness, reasoning, and problem solving. This makes it more difficult to learn efficiently. It’s also a huge cause of accidents.
Sleeplessness Can Be Crippling
Sleeplessness disturbs not only your ability to sleep at night, but also your ability function properly during the day. Sleeplessness doesn’t specifically mean you suffer from insomnia, but is certainly a good pointer. An inability to fall asleep will have detrimental effects on your cognitive function – basically, your brain just doesn’t work properly. You attention, your memory, your reasoning are all affected by a lack of sleep, but it can also have very serious effects on your physical health.
Is It the Same as Insomnia?
‘Insomnia’ describes a log-term inability to sleep, so if you’re having trouble getting to sleep, consider if it may be linked to something unusual in your life – some recent stresses, for example – or if you have been having sleep problems for some length of time. Someone who suffers from insomnia will find it difficult to fall asleep and/or stay asleep at night.
If these symptoms sound familiar, you’re not alone. An estimated third of UK adults have, or have had, some long-term problems with sleeplessness. It’s incredibly common.
Determining whether a person is suffering from actual insomnia or just sleeplessness can be tricky, but in general people with insomnia will encounter at least one of these symptoms.
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Waking up during the night, along with trouble falling back to sleep
- Non-restorative sleep
- Fatigue or low energy
- Cognitive impairment
- Mood problems
- Interpersonal relationship problems
- Difficulty at work or school
- Behavioral issues
