DYSREGULATION LEADS TO SLEEP ISSUES
It’s common to have difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. This can be caused by many things, but one of the most common causes is a dysregulated nervous system.
The nervous system is responsible for regulating the body’s sleep-wake cycle. So, when the nervous system is dysregulated, this cycle becomes disrupted, and this can lead to difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep.
COMMON SOURCES OF DYSREGULATION & SLEEP PROBLEMS
There are many things that can cause the nervous system to become dysregulated. Stress is one of the most common triggers. When we’re stressed, our bodies release hormones that can make it harder to fall asleep. Other triggers include changes in schedule, caffeine, and alcohol.
EASY WAYS TO IMPROVE SLEEP
The good news is that there are many things you can do to help regulate the nervous system and improve your sleep. One of the most important things you can do is to practice good sleep hygiene. This means creating a sleep environment that is dark, quiet, and cool. It is also wise to avoid screens before bed and limit caffeine and alcohol consumption.
In addition to practicing good sleep hygiene, you can also try stillness techniques such as yoga, meditation or Tai Chi. These techniques can help to reduce stress and promote a sense of calm.
By balancing the nervous system, you can quickly improve your sleep and overall health.
