Not sleeping well at night? Understand why

Can’t get to sleep don't know why?


Not getting a good night sleep is a debilitating feeling when you’re tired, or you get to sleep and wake up a few hours down the line, only to remain awake.

The body is a complex mechanism and has its own internal alarm system.  Being In tune with your body is important, because it sends you a signal or a cry for help, when it feels distress.

Factors involved which may affect the sleep cycle

There are many factors involved which may affect a sleep cycle, for example, emotions may trigger off a past or current problem, causing you to over think or re-live a trauma/situation which causes you stress, or.

  • You may be a coffee drinker and overstimulating the body, causing your heart to race.
  • Have palpitations or irregular heartbeat,
  • Going through a problematic situation in your life.
  • Stimulants can keep you awake.

Foods that trigger an inflammatory reaction in the body

We love our food and may eat things that triggers an inflammatory reaction in the bodies, causing pain and discomfort.  Some of these culprit foods contain or have

  • High levels of refined sugar
  • An adverse reaction on blood sugar, promoting sugar highs, followed by a crash in energy levels. These situations may disturb the sleep cycle.

Example, you may have issues digesting or breaking down dairy products, causing an inflammatory response in the body, by way of producing excess mucus in the throat.  This situation may interrupt a good night sleep, because of the congestion in your throat. You may begin to snore, which puts additional stress on the lungs and heart.  Struggling with breathing at night may be a consequence of not getting a good night’s rest and waking up very tired/stressed in the morning.
