Recently, some personal stressors, compounded I suppose, by the ongoing pandemic has caused my sleep pattern to be disturbed and in fact, sometimes I don’t think I get enough sleep in the night and I really don’t want this to progress. I say this because I do remember a time when my mental health was beginning to be affected by said lack of sleep. It was not good and I would not wish it on anyone, so I want to do what I can now to deal with the problem. So what I did was to go to some trusted sites to see if some self-help along with advice from professionals would help.
I was drawn to a feature on the NHS website, which suggests that some well-known effects of lack of sleep are feeling grumpy and not being able to work at one’s best. It also says that “sleep deprivation can also have profound consequences on your physical health”.
I definitely do not want to get this to be me at all. There is enough stressing us all out already. The NHS website also said that “One in 3 of us suffers from poor sleep, with stress, computers and taking work home often blamed.”
Let’s just take a moment to really take that in. First of all the statistic itself is staggering! One in 3 are affected by sleep issues! Using computers and taking work home help to compound the problem. Well many of us are working from home now so we are not even taking the work home! It’s already at home and many of us too are working with computers! Oh my!
Of course, there are things we can do, and the sooner the better. So here are some frugal things we can do:
- When sleep evades us and especially over a period of time, we want to be able to take something that will help because lack of sleep can be so frustrating! What if you could have a chewy sweet that would definitely help with your sleep? Not possible? It is! One of the best ones I have found is melatonin sleep gummies. I think this is a real God-send.
