Age can bring on a different sleep pattern and we need to learn how to control it so when it is time to sleep we sleep well, that’s why it’s important to remain active and stimulating our minds, is also a very important part of this process. Sometimes it may become harder to get a good nights sleep and feel rested when we wake up. Sleeping is as important as our diet and activities.
If you don’t get enough sleep at night, it will reduce your alertness during the day because you’re tired. Long periods of sleepless nights can cause high blood pressure and isn’t good for the heart either. There are many reasons why some people can’t achieve a restful nights sleep.
Sometimes you might sleep but it is a light sleep and we need to have a deep restful REM sleep.
Sometimes you may awaken during the night from pain perhaps caused from arthritis.
Sometimes you may experience heartburn, which causes you to get less sleep. Snoring or feeling depressed sometimes can also cause you to lose sleep.
You may have had a stressful day followed by the lack of sleep. Muscles spasms can also cause a person to lose sleep – again exercise will help in all these areas with both mind and body.
