INSOMNIA, WHY? Feeling tired, fatigue or sleepiness are all common experiences in today’s world. Yet, health care providers often dismiss these complaints, because the symptoms are universal and because it can be challenging to evaluate medically. While tiredness is often temporary, and can be easily treatable,, but can suddenly worsen, or can prevent you from doing what and can be a health problem or a sleep disorder. Sleep seems to be a canary in a coal mine, where it’s sensitive to all these things going on in the body. and when it starts changing,, you want to ask yourself, …what;s going on? Definitions are different in all these three symptoms… Sleepiness, for instance, is a need for sleep and that makes it difficult to stay awake.,even when driving, watching a movie,working, and even after ingesting caffeine. Fatigue, on the other hand, is a deeper, sort of inability, either physical or mental, , to do what you want to do… such as go to the grocery store, exercise,etc. Somewhere in the middle of tiredness,, a desire to rest that is less debilitating than fatigue, and less dramatic than sleepiness…you can still be productive while tired. If you are bothered by how tired you feel, it could be that there may be a simple explanation,…not enough sleep. According to the Centre of Disease Control and Prevention, 1/3 of North Americans do not get the recommended 7 or 8 hours per night….even 7 hours is not enough for most people. Sleep deprivation raises the risk for car accidents, and raises other health concerns, such as Diabetes, cardiovascular disease and depression. Lack of sleep can also affect mood, and relationships, in ways that even caffeine cannot remedy. Being tired is worth looking into. The body in its wisdom gives us messages and if we are attuned, it may be a good idea to pay attention to the signals which could mean lack of good nutrition, auto immune or thyroid problems, and may be wise to have evaluated. If nothing turns up in a regular clinic, it is worth seeing a sleep specialist. Sometimes it could be as simple as avoiding eating late at night, in order to receive healing sleep! Being tired is worth your attention Sleep regenerates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives. Music helps us sleep, Conquers depression, builds strong immunity! Music is therapy, music heals, Many Blessings to you and yours, Dr. Halanna B. Matthew
