Hidden Barriers to Restful Sleep
Due to life and work lifestyle many people suffering from some degree of insomnia, it’s surprising that many are still unaware of the connection between hormones and sleep. Several hormones are key to the sleep-wake cycle, and an imbalance of these levels can sabotage slumber night after a sleepless night.
HORMONES & YOUR SLEEP
Many adults are losing sleep because of stress – the constant companion of modern life. Cortisol is the hormone released by our bodies in response to stress, and chronically elevated levels are known to impair our ability to sleep. Additionally, the gradual decline in production of the sleep hormone melatonin as we age triggers imbalances directly related to sleep.
UNDERSTANDING THE SLEEP-WAKE CYCLE
In fact, depression, obesity and diabetes are just three of the long term consequences of sleep deprivation – defined as six or fewer hours per night.
