Do You Have a Sleep Problem?
Sleep is a vital part of life. It helps people with focusing, concentration, and critical thinking. When something happens to an individual’s sleep schedule, it can throw off their whole day. Many people in the world suffer from sleep disorders. These disorders can be detrimental to an individual’s everyday life.
There are many different sleep disorders, but the main categories include:
✅ Insomnias: inability to fall or stay asleep
✅ Hypersomnias: excessive sleeping, even at inappropriate or dangerous times
✅ Sleep Related Breathing Disorders: difficulty breathing while sleeping (Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common)
✅ Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorders: sleep times are not in normal night schedules
✅ Parasomnias: unwanted events or experiences during sleep, when falling asleep, or waking up
✅ Sleep Movement Disorders: cause movement during or while falling asleep
When to Get Help
If an individual is experiencing sleep problems and self-help methods have proved unsuccessful then it may be time to consult a professional. Individuals should consult professional help especially in cases of excessive daytime sleepiness, the inability to fall or stay asleep frequently, falling asleep at inappropriate times, or you or your partner stops breathing during sleep.
Sleep disorders can affect relationships as well as individuals. It is common that while one person has a sleep disorder, the other individual’s sleep tends to be affected as well. This can cause problems and stress in a relationship. Seeking help before a sleep disorder effects a relationship too much is very important.
