Are you stressed enough over finances.
Are you stressed enough over finances, your job, relationship conflict or other stressors that you're experiencing insomnia? You're not alone! According to a survey published in the American Journal of Managed Care, almost half of respondents (46%) experience some form of insomnia, either difficulty going to sleep, trouble staying asleep, or insomnia so severe that it disrupts daytime activities.
And insomnia is often (though not always) stress-related, so it's an important topic for us to discuss here.
Because sleep is so important to overall health, insomnia can affect your life in many ways. A sleep deficit can make you feel mentally slower and more emotional, which can exacerbate your experience of stress. Dealing with lasting insomnia can cause stress, too, which can lead to more stress-related insomnia.
And, if your insomnia is stress-related to begin with, being overly tired and stressed does nothing to help solve the problems that are creating the stress in the first place.
