Sleep is one of the most important components of health and well-being. It’s not just the amount of sleep you get that matters, it’s also the quality of sleep, too.
During the five 90-minute sleep cycles that typically occur within an eight-hour period, your body repairs muscle, boosts immunity, consolidates memory, regulates both heart rate and blood pressure, and releases hormones that facilitate growth and manage appetite.
If you’ve always been a “light sleeper” you’ve most likely lacked the right balance of essential deep sleep-inducing hormones since youth – when hormone production is most plentiful, and your levels are balanced. As you age, hormonal inefficacy occurs, and quality of sleep is compromised.
When your body doesn’t have the necessary amount of time to complete these phases of critical restoration during sleep, it can significantly impact your health.
In women, deficiencies or imbalances in levels of estrogen, progesterone and melatonin hormones trigger hot flashes, night sweats, increased urination, and insomnia. These interruptions can result in chronic fatigue, elevated blood pressure, weight gain, “brain fog,” (difficulty with memory, focus, concentration, and decision-making) as well as depression and anxiety.
Sleep deprivation puts you at risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, and new evidence suggests it also affects mental health.
More than half of reported insomnia cases are related to depression, anxiety or psychological stress and women are two to three times more likely than men to suffer from insomnia.
They also tend to feel more burdened by sleep disruption symptoms in their daily lives than their male counterparts and experience more mental and emotional stress as a result.
