Sleep Health

Sleep health includes an individual’s health in relation to the amount and quality of sleep that the person has. If the person does not get enough sleep, that person’s health is affected in every way: mentally, physically and emotionally. You may be having difficulties with your sleeping habits which is affecting your overall health. Unbeknownst to you, you may be dealing with a sleeping ailment such as sleep apnea, a nightmare disorder or narcolepsy. Another ailment, REM Sleep Disorder involves the individual physically acting out his or her dreams, which can be dangerous to the individual and a significant other, as well as disruptive to a good night’s sleep. In order to solve your sleeping issues, complete a sleep study and/or a CPAP consultation.

Mental Health

Sleep ailments can cause a lot of damage to your mental health. Not getting enough sleep does more than affect how tired you are during the day. If you are suffering from continuous sleeping issues, then your mental health will decline. You may suffer from night terrors, anxiety or become prone to panic attacks. You may have an overactive or racing mind making it difficult for you to fall asleep or stay asleep. If you have suffered from depression, loss of memory, a low sexual drive or struggle with substance abuse, you may have developed a sleeping ailment as a result. It is also possible that these mental issues came about as a result from your poor sleeping patterns.
