Irregular sleep patterns have troubled people for so many years; but since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, many more have struggled to sleep at all.
From financial worries and feeling alone, to feeling anxious about the future and wanting to carry on as we did before; so much has been consuming our minds.
A lack of sleep over any period of time can cause us to feel restless, low on energy, anxious and develop the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases including dementia.
Luckily, we’re here to help those struggling to get a good nights sleep. Using CBD products has become a popular treatment for insomnia and irregular sleep patterns.
What causes insomnia or poor sleep?
It’s surprising to see how many factors can affect a good nights sleep. Changes in day to day routines, worrying about money or loved ones, feeling alone and not exercising regularly can all contribute towards poor sleep and insomnia.
Without a doubt, everybody has suffered with at least one of these symptoms throughout 2020. Coronavirus, lockdowns, tiered systems and being kept away from work or loved ones has caused us all to completely change our lives and worry about the future.
The problem continues when we start to worry about not sleeping, or taking supplements or medication to help us fall asleep and hopefully stay asleep until the morning. The more we worry, the less we will sleep. The more supplements or medications we take, the more harm we could be doing to our body.
Sleep is one of the most important factors to a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Why is sleep medication harmful?
Studies have found doctors prescribe medications such as benzodiazepines to treat insomnia cases; which in the long-run, become addictive.
Medications such as Valium or Ambien have been linked to side-effects including dependency, or creating a false-sleep. False-sleep is where the body is helped to fall asleep, but doesn’t experience REM sleep – or Rapid Eye Movement sleep. What’s the problem here?
REM sleep is important for rest, recuperation and cognitive functions. Stimulating areas of the brain which are essential to development, retaining memories and information, feeling rested and healthy – REM sleep is a must.
This is why many people are now turning to CBD to improve their sleep patterns and overcome their insomnia.
