Sleep is vital to feeling good and being energised for our day. Poor sleep or insomnia can affect our whole functioning. Common effects include persistent fatigue, headaches, low energy, and irritability.
Not just over worked
In extreme cases the effects of sleep loss can include difficulty concentrating or remembering things, and difficulty performing complex tasks.
It may not be obvious why
Factors that contribute to poor sleep include stress and worry, significant life events, changes in routine, lifestyle factors (e.g., caffeine, alcohol, medication, obesity, sedentary behaviours), other sleep disorders (such as restless legs and sleep apnoea), anxiety and depression.
