Do you ever wake up at 3am and struggle to go back to sleep?
This is a very common symptom people discuss with me.
Stress causes hyperarousal, which means we may have difficulty falling or staying asleep and experience restless nights. This impairs concentration, attention, learning and memory.
The problem continues because once we have had a bad nights sleep, we then feel more tired, moody, irritable and less patient or focused. 😫
This starts to impact our life in many different ways.
Stress has many sources, it can come from our environment, from our bodies, or our own thoughts and how we view the world around us.
In an increasingly stressful world finding positive ways to deal with stress is an vital part of self-care.
