Changes in Sleep Patterns Can Leave Us Feeling So Tired

Good rest is important for good health. Support is here to help you feel your best.

Changes in sleep patterns happen from time to time and that’s okay. But an ongoing lack of good, quality rest can actually change the chemical balance in our brains and impact the way we think, feel, and act. When we don’t get a good rest, everything feels more difficult and our thoughts might race. Completing simple tasks can be difficult. 

Sleep issues can include:

  • Problems with falling and staying asleep
  • Problems keeping a regular sleep/wake schedule

Not getting enough sleep can impact our ability to function day to day. On the other side, sleeping too much can also be a signal that something is not quite right.

Sometimes issues like stress, depression, and anxiety can interfere with sleep. But it doesn’t have to stay that way.
