Common Sleep Disorder
When we are awake we have loads of tasks to accomplish and things to be done. Then we have plans as per schedule, for the other day. Somewhere in between comes sleep. We sleep to get refreshed and rejuvenating for tougher tasks ahead. Problem is not the tasks waiting to be done but not getting enough sleep what is needed to feel fresh enough to take challenges head on. People suffer loads of problem due to not getting enough sleep. They might be suffering from one of many common sleep disorders. What exactly is needed is to pay attention to the symptoms of them in the routine activities.
We lie awake at times or wake up frequently without falling into sound sleep or feel irritable sensations in body parts while we wait for sleep to take over or feel sleepy at works or while driving or all the day we may feel fatigue taking over us. All these are few of many symptoms of sleep disorders. Few of the very common sleep disorders are as follows:
· Sleep Apnea (interrupted breathing during sleep)
· Restless Leg Syndrome (irritable sensations in leg while resting)
· Narcolepsy (excessive daytime sleep)
· Night Terror
· Bruxism (teeth grinding)
· Somnambulism (Sleep Walking)
· Sleep Paralysis

· Sleep Enuresis (Bed Wetting)
We all know that sleep can disrupt our overall health-physical and mental. A healthy human being is supposed to sleep 6 to 8 hours daily that excludes nightmare of course. When a person could not sleep or rest his mind for this period he is bound to face severe consequences on part of his health. The reason could be anxiety, stress and past traumatic conditions or may be early signs of some bigger health problems. And if not, regular problems of these common sleep disorders might trigger them.
Insomnia is the most common of all the sleep disorders. Person suffering from it cannot sleep without difficulty, waking up frequently at night and not feel fresh after waking up for the whole day. This can be controlled by proper exercise, meditation, mindful diet and maintaining proper routine.
Rest of common sleep disorders may take proper track to control and even help of a sleep specialist and sleep center if the problem gets worst. So, do not ignore your sleeping problems or your dependence on sleeping pills before they could not be controlled. Sleep happily!
