Why can't we sleep?

Månad sedan

Most of us aren’t getting enough sleep. But whether you struggle to fall and stay asleep or because you decide sleep is the first thing you can cut out to make time for other things, we all underestimate the power of a good night’s rest. Glad You Asked host Christophe Haubursin wants to know why we aren’t sleeping well, what impact too little sleep has on your body and how we can get enough shuteye.

I dont sleep until like 4 or 5 am but that's mainly because im having panic attacks all night every night. Usually I wake up around 11 AM.

I feel for y’all. Only because sleep is so important to me and when I don’t get it I’m miserable. I’m wildly grateful for my regular 8 hours/night. My dreams are waaaay too good not sleep a full night. 6 hours, absolute minimum.

No I can't get enough sleep because I live with really noisy disrespectful neighbours. Its just a matter of silence for me to perform at my best during the day but I dont have the luxury to change my house nor my neighbour have the education to be silent when they are warned. Sleep is the most important need, even more than food and it directly effects mental health and people should be aware of this. Its not a coincidence that the first world countries like Sweden, Finland has strict sleep quality policies and the best rating of happiness. (they have strict rules about noise after 10pm etc) This issue really should be adressed for the generations well being

I'm currently in my final year of uni and the stress of it has caused me to get episodes of insomnia. Some weeks this year were so bad that I woke up with tinnitus, headaches and stomach pain. Stress (both from uni and from not getting enough sleep due to stress, haha) has been detrimental to my health. I'm constantly tired, I have started to isolate myself because I can barely muster the energy to go about my day, let alone meet new people. I'm also sleeping with my partner in the same bed and he's also stressed out from work, so some nights (like last night) he moves around every ten minutes, touches me accidentally or makes noises in his sleep. We decided to move to a different apartment (not just because of this) and I will have a separate room with a bed to sleep in if needed, so that we don't wake each other up during rough nights. One thing that did work for me was to cut out everything with caffeine in it. I only drink coffee when I've had enough sleep, so that it won't mess with my sleep cycle during an unstable episode.

If you have a few days off. Go to bed at a reasonable ish hour. Not past 12, even if you're a night owl. Not before 8. See when you wake up every day. If you feel refreshed, that's a good sleep. Record the average for those refreshed days. That's about what you need.

I can definitely confirm that school starts way too early. Honestly, school shouldn't start before 9. My school starts at 8:40, and I usually naturally wake up after 9, so it's often difficult to pay attention in first period. Besides, because I live so far away and we often have to drive my siblings to school first, I typically have to get up at 7 to get to school on time.

Direct correlation between poor sleep and obesity-i reckon they are eating too late at night considering they are obese i think thats a safe bet, and thats why they are getting poor sleep, not that they are poor sleepers and thats what made the obese. Just some food for tought

the last part when they are explaining the map they seem to be saying poor sleep is causing obesity and people to get covid (15:40) but tbh thats conflating correlation with causation (at least for the covid one he literally says it) its literally just poverty thats causing all those things. poverty means less sleep, being stuck with the night shift more often and not working a 9-5 office job, close housing and not being able to "work from home", and eating unhealthy, obesity causing food, or just being paycheck to paycheck which would lead to higher cortisol n then obesity. point is poor sleep doesnt cause this directly and probably plays only a small factor.

A lot of this probably won’t be implemented because of underlying Reagan era and Protestant era beliefs that people and children especially brown ppl and children (who made up a majority of our hard labor market at one point) are lazy and must be worked as hard as possible and must be kept busy so we aren’t able to plot/plan/improve society

There is a great book called "Why We Sleep" by Matthew Walker anybody trying to fool their selves into thinking that need less sleep should read the book. You really do need the sleep. It is more important than people realize, and in cases like Ronald Regan for example could have been a large factor in his Alzheimers considering his constant boasting of only needing 4 hours a night.
Gab 25 dagar sedan
Another thing to address is that different people need different number of hours to sleep. 8 hours is the average. There is that 1% of people who only need a few hours a day because their brains are much more efficient at "resetting" the body to be rejuvenated for the next day.

I almost basically wrote a whole essay about how awful/unconventional/life-destroying/etc. my sleep cycle is before realizing it was way too personal to post on the internet. I don't think my rhythm fits the 24 hour earth rotation at all. I saw a sci show psych video once that seemed to touch on whatever disorder it is. I identified a lot. But I also have a LOT of comorbid mental disorders that affect sleep. It's kind of a chicken and egg situation sometimes when two illnesses affect each other. I'm confused and not doing well :D ... and tired.

maybe you should also ask, how to get to sleep easily and how to get to deep sleep soon after you sleep? so people can get better quality of sleep rather than just the quantity of sleep.

Thanks for this video, it was really insightful. One aspect that would be good to explore would be the impact on parents of young and older children. I have a young daughter who wakes very early, which impacts heavily on my sleep and alertness. It is so depressing that schools are set up to run early which can have detrimental impacts on teenagers sleep patterns and overall health, but opening schools later would make it even more difficult for a lot of parents who are in the 9-5 job patterns. It really does feel like society as a whole needs to rethink the rigidity of work schedules.
