Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For instance, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels and balancing hormones that stimulate appetite.
Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and weight gain.
Disturbances in sleep can follow a bizarre pattern. You may have noticed this phenomenon yourself when you wake up during the night at a particular time.
Now I am not speaking about an odd night here and there. Rather, I’m speaking specifically about waking up night after night. So much so, that the nights of sleeping through have now become a distant memory. The idea of going to bed may even be creating anxiety due to the frustration that comes with constant sleep disruption.
