You really should get some sleep. The report from Canada is that 1 in 7 of us don’t get enough sleep. That 1 in 7 person has trouble going to sleep almost all the time. And a fifth of those are lucky to catch 5 hours. Canadians who were obese, heavy drinkers and frequent users of marijuana were more likely to have trouble sleeping, but that didn’t explain the high numbers. Stress during the day also seems to be connected (no surprise there).
You really should get some sleep. And, might I add, popping sleeping pills is probably not the answer. Sleeplessness, or even sleepiness during the day, can have a number of causes. This may point to a more serious problem that can be solved or minimized with treatment.
One of the problems is that we often don’t really realize how tired we are. It’s those who brag that they only need 5 hours of sleep a night that have trouble staying awake during the meeting, or who must have a steady intake of caffeine to survive. In some of us this struggle to fall asleep or stay awake can lead to major swings of headache attacks, migraine attacks, and less ability to cope.
You really should get some sleep. If you can’t, talk to your doctor and get to the root of the cause. You’ll be glad you did!
