Lack of sleep affects many areas of your life and often results in being stressed, anxious, short tempered, lacking in energy and motivation and/or exhaustion and can affect your ability to cope with life. What’s more, with serious sleep disorders such as insomnia, the inability to sleep can become an obsession, thus exacerbating the problem.
Going to bed already worrying that you are not going to sleep and won’t be able to cope with the next day ahead is actually the thing which is stopping you sleeping, but it seems impossible to not worry about it if you have fallen into the habit.
Sleeping too much is almost as big a problem and often occurs with depression. The problem with sleeping too much is that in certain phases of sleep, the brain is working very hard – overdo it and you end up exhausting yourself in your sleep and then you are encouraged to sleep again which can become a vicious circle.
