We all need to ‘recharge our batteries’ overnight so that we can be energetic and alert during the day. Most of us spend a third of our lives asleep. But one person in three experiences sleep problems at some time in their lives. Some people don’t get enough sleep, others are too restless, and others may feel that they are sleeping too much. Perhaps you have difficulty getting to sleep, or problems staying asleep through the night, or you wake too early in the morning? You may think you’re getting enough sleep but if you wake up feeling tired or feel very sleepy during the day, then you might have a sleep problem. Too little sleep can make you feel tired and irritable, and less able to concentrate the next day. But it isn’t just how much sleep you get that matters; quality of sleep is important too.
The most common kinds of sleep problem are:
- insomnia – having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
- sleep apnoea – due to breathing interruptions during sleep
- restless legs syndrome – uncomfortable sensations that make you feel you have to move your legs.
