Sleep is essential for maintaining your brain health and general physical wellbeing., but it's common to have poor quality sleep.
Here are the top 5 signs you might need to get some better zzzz's!
If it's taking you a while to get to sleep, that could be the sign of an underlying sleep quality issue like insomnia.
Disrupted sleep means less sleep overall. There are many reasons for this including caffeine, the room temperature being too extreme or another underlying sleep condition.
When you don't get enough good-quality sleep, your brain's emotional regulation centers can become impaired, leading to irritability, mood swings, and difficulty controlling your emotions.
Snoring isn't only a pain for your partner, but it isn't good for you either! It can disrupt your own sleep by waking you up repeatedly during the night, even if you don't realize it. Snoring is also a symptom of sleep apnea which can lead to more serious health issues, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
Daytime fatigue or sleepiness indicates that you're not getting enough restorative sleep at night. When you sleep, your body goes through different stages of sleep, each stage plays a crucial role in repairing and restoring your body and brain, and if any of these stages are disrupted, you may wake up feeling tired, groggy, or fatigued.
