So I've been having a lot of trouble sleep the past two weeks....:(:( I've never had this problem...sleep is like my best friend! Obviously we are fighting...or wait....one of these could be it...especially #1...whoops!
Can't sleep reason #1: too much caffeine
Many people drink a lot of caffeinated drinks during the day, and discover that they can't sleep at night. Indeed, caffeine is present in high doses in a huge number of different beverages. Caffeine is a stimulant; having a lot of it in the body can prevent sleep. Coffee is one of the most popular sources of caffeine, and there are more coffee shops than ever before. Sodas are another drink that people have on a regular basis that can have a lot of caffeine, making it so they can't sleep at night.
Can't sleep reason #2: sleeping disorders
In addition to insomnia, there are many sleeping disorders that can make it so a person can't sleep well at night.
Sleep apnea is a very common condition that can making getting good night's sleep very difficult.
Although it is very common, snoring can also be considered a sleeping disorder that makes it so people can't sleep at night.
Restless Leg Syndrome is another sleeping disorder that can prevent healthy sleep habits in the people who suffer from it.
Narcolepsy - overwhelming daytime sleepiness and falling asleep during the day - is another common reason people can't sleep at night.
Can't sleep reason #3: stress
Without a doubt, we have all suffered from the issue of having too much to deal with during our daily lives. When this occurs, many people can't sleep at night because they keep thinking about all of the issues causing stress in their life. Laying awake at night thinking about daily troubles is an all too common reason that people can't sleep very well. Many doctors advise patients to try and perform breathing exercises and to try and let go of daily stress before retiring for the evening.
