Why do we sleep badly?

An article about poor sleep and what we can do about it

Sleep is a fundamental function of our lives that is essential for our physical and mental health. Nevertheless, many of us experience phases in which we sleep poorly. The reasons for this can be many and varied, ranging from stress and lifestyle to medical problems. In this article, we take a look at some of the main causes of sleep disorders.

  1. Stress and anxiety: One of the most common causes of sleep disorders is stress. Both professional and personal stress can cause our brains to remain active at night, making it difficult to switch off and fall asleep. Similarly, anxiety can keep the mind racing even when our body needs rest.
  2. Poor sleeping habits: Irregular bedtimes, too much screen time before bedtime and an uncomfortable sleeping environment can also contribute to sleep disorders. Our bodies function best when they follow a set sleep-wake cycle and when we prepare ourselves for relaxation before going to bed.
  3. Medical problems: Sometimes underlying sleep disorders are medical problems such as sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome or depression. These conditions can disrupt the sleep cycle and lead to restless sleep, even if we spend enough hours in bed.
  4. Environmental influences: Noise, light and even room temperature can affect our sleep. A sleeping environment that is too loud or too bright can make it difficult to fall asleep or interrupt sleep, while an uncomfortable room temperature can also be disturbing.
  5. Lifestyle factors: An unhealthy lifestyle can also contribute to sleep disorders. Too much caffeine or alcohol, an unbalanced diet and a lack of physical activity can all contribute to poor sleep at night.

It is important to note that sleep disorders are often not due to a single cause, but to a combination of factors.
