IT’S SLEEP SUNDAY – LET’S TALK ABOUT CORONASOMNIA…

Studies have shown that one in four people in the UK has experienced insomnia and other sleep disturbances since the start of the pandemic, (one in six pre-Covid).

The BBC writes that disrupted routines and ongoing uncertainty are contributing to a surge in insomnia. What can we do about it? There’s a problem: the ongoing coronavirus crisis has made getting a good night’s rest significantly harder. Some experts even have a term for it: ‘coronasomnia’ or ‘Covid-somnia’.

Sleep insufficiency – which many health authorities classify as less than seven hours a night – also affects your work; many studies have shown that it makes you more likely to make mistakes, wrecks your concentration, increases reaction times and affects your moods.

Our day by day schedules and conditions have been disturbed, making it difficult to watch out for our circadian rhythms. Ordinarily, our days race to a timetable of morning timers, drives, breaks and sleep times – yet Covid-19 has stirred all that up.

With some of us still working from home, we may be getting less exercise and potentially less exposure to natural light – both of which contribute to better sleep. Some sleep problems will have become chronic and long-lasting because the pandemic has created delays to getting treatment in some cases; people have only sought medical attention in emergencies, while some healthcare facilities have become short-staffed or overwhelmed with Covid-19 patients.

It is important to address the problem before it gets really bad. Maybe try and few supplements but check with your doctor first if on any other medication, to see if they help. The longer you leave it before you get help the harder it will be to sort out. Your sleep issues become a sleep disorder, i.e., insomnia, and unfortunately, there isn’t a quick fix… It’s difficult to break habits that have formed.

Do Not Age write about how important sleep is to us all. Insomnia, whether in a pandemic or not, is difficult to live with. Sleep has interested scientists for many decades, and with ongoing research and advances in technology, several discoveries show that sleep is vital for many aspects of life. Re-fuelling is often considered essential, but good quality sleep is rarely seen as equally important. Getting enough sleep is, in fact, as crucial as a healthy and balanced diet. Not getting enough sleep can result in several health issues, such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart diseases.

Our body is continuously repairing itself, and resting gives it a chance to catch up with the work we did throughout the day. Our mind is also in need of time to consolidate what has been learnt, store memories, and remove the unnecessary neurochemical by-products. A period of unconsciousness is necessary to store information gathered through the day and move those “files” from a temporary location to a more permanent one. Sleep is often considered as a period of inactivity, but this couldn’t be further from the truth; while asleep, our brain is highly active, and it’s changing to ensure optimal functionality. Our bodies are converting food into energy and providing the brain with the compounds needed to transmit the signals.

Most adults from the age of 18 to 60, need on average 7/8 hours of sleep per night. As well as adequate sleep, we also need good quality sleep. 

I have tried every trick in the book to help me sleep and can now go off quite easily by sticking to certain rules. My amazing sleep of 7/8 hours after my recent injections for pain relief was short-lived. Some of the pain is already back and my nights seem to be very disturbed again. At least that was in fact until I tried the Do Not Age Sure Sleep. SureSleep® promotes high-quality sleep and naturally raises your melatonin levels.

I was told to take two tablets before bed and that it would probably take a few weeks to kick in. I started taking them a couple of weeks ago and over the last three nights have slept much better. I am still waking up with pain problems but now I seem to be able to soon go back to sleep again which was where it was going wrong before.

Do Not Age say that Supplementing long term directly with melatonin can prevent your body from creating its own melatonin, so not what we want. Do Not Age has spent a lot of time and effort to create the perfect product to ease you into a great nights sleep, and leave you feeling refreshed the next day.
