Sleep is one of the most important and basic physiological controller of our bodies. Sleep is necessary for life and proper functioning; yet many people suffer from inadequate sleep. 30% to 40% of Americans report suffering from some form of insomnia. Sleep loss results in drastically decreased brain function, often resulting in a physical illness. Studies indicate that chronic insomnia, which affects 15% of the population, can lead to poor health and debilitating disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and “wake up America” – OBESITY!
Our bodies require deep sleep, or slow wave sleep, to heal and restore at the cellular level. Thus, restorative sleep is an essential part of one’s health. This article focuses on how natural rhythms affect sleep. Individuals vary in their patterns of sleep, energy, and daily rhythms. Rhythms can vary daily for each of us. So, being acutely tuned into these variations can create a more natural sleep cycle.
In 1879, Edison invented the light bulb and our sleep has never been the same. Artificial light changes our nighttime brain chemistry, delaying the release of melatonin which naturally releases in darkness. Melatonin is a powerful anti-oxidant and cancer fighting molecule. It ensures a good night’s sleep when present in adequate amounts. Artificial light from household lights, computers, and cell phones all reduce melatonin.
Studies show that more than 80% of us experience stress on a regular basis. This type of chronic stress leads to anxiety and eventually depression in severe cases. Sleep, anxiety, and pain often occur together and are inter-related. So, one must control or mitigate stress to achieve optimum sleep.
The 2:30 a.m. wake-up call, that many people report, make it difficult to go back asleep until the glucose metabolism can be restored to normal levels.
The bedroom should only be used for sleep and sex. When we work, watch television, or read in the bedroom, we risk training our brain that we should be active at night. This training may lead to behaviors that cause chronic insomnia.
