When it comes to over­all health and well­ness, the most com­mon­ly dis­cussed pair­ing is diet and exer­cise. And for good rea­son — they are one of the main meth­ods of strength­en­ing the body and com­bat­ing stress. What a per­son eats, how active he is, is extreme­ly impor­tant for the pre­ven­tion of dis­eases of the car­dio­vas­cu­lar and mus­cu­loskele­tal sys­tems, brain, inter­nal organs and tis­sues of the body. But phys­i­ol­o­gists believe that sleep dis­tur­bances and chron­ic sleep depri­va­tion may have a greater impact on mor­bid­i­ty and mor­tal­i­ty in men and women than car­dio­vas­cu­lar and pul­monary dis­eases com­bined.

Sound sleep is the key to health

Night sleep is a vital time for the gen­er­al improve­ment of the body, recov­ery and reg­u­la­tion of meta­bol­ic process­es. Sleep dis­tur­bance can affect blood pres­sure, heart rate, men­tal state, hor­mon­al and immuno­log­i­cal func­tions, and many oth­er impor­tant aspects of nor­mal phys­i­ol­o­gy. Many of the com­mon dis­eases of the car­dio­vas­cu­lar, pul­monary, and even ner­vous sys­tems can be caused by sleep dis­or­ders. And here’s the thing: a mod­ern per­son lives an active life almost around the clock, sur­round­ed by a large num­ber of tech­nolo­gies that dis­turb sleep. High work­load, evening irri­tants in the form of phones, tablets and TVs sig­nif­i­cant­ly wors­en the qual­i­ty of rest. And these are not iso­lat­ed cas­es, accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, sleep is dis­turbed in more than half of adults.

Causes of sleep disorders: stress, emotions, overload

Qual­i­ty and full sleep helps to elim­i­nate stress, gives rest to the body and brain. How­ev­er, lack of sleep and con­stant lack of sleep, ear­ly ris­es and late bed­ding pro­voke this very stress. Sleep dis­or­ders are noth­ing new: insom­nia, shal­low and inter­rupt­ed sleep, sleep apnea and snor­ing are not new con­di­tions, but their occur­rence is increas­ing. Mod­ern life neg­a­tive­ly affects the quan­ti­ty and qual­i­ty of night (and day) rest.

Sports neu­rol­o­gists, sleep spe­cial­ists, coach­es, and strength and con­di­tion­ing experts will tell you that the best and most con­sis­tent ath­letes on any team and in any sport tend to be the best sleep­ers. Basi­cal­ly, when it comes to the effect of sleep on per­for­mance (phys­i­cal or men­tal), stud­ies have shown that sleep depri­va­tion every night (up to six hours a week or more) is asso­ci­at­ed with pre­ma­ture phys­i­cal fatigue, meta­bol­ic dis­or­ders, increased risk of injury. This neg­a­tive­ly affects health. Con­verse­ly, opti­miz­ing sleep (nor­mal­iza­tion of the reg­i­men, a suf­fi­cient amount of sleep in peace and qui­et) can sig­nif­i­cant­ly improve phys­i­cal activ­i­ty and cog­ni­tive func­tions, and reduce the impact of stress on the body.

The work of the brain in sleep: what is important?

Sleep is a neu­ro­log­i­cal phe­nom­e­non. And many neu­ro­log­i­cal func­tions, changes in brain activ­i­ty, are asso­ci­at­ed with sleep. One of the main ques­tions that doc­tors are inter­est­ed in is how sleep dis­tur­bance affects the work of the glyph­ic sys­tem of the brain. It is believed that the glyph­ic sys­tem is a kind of “sew­er” net­work that cleans­es the brain of inter­me­di­ate and waste com­pounds, and is respon­si­ble for remov­ing tox­ins from the cen­tral parts of the ner­vous sys­tem. How­ev­er, it also pro­motes tis­sue repair and improves the effi­cien­cy and per­for­mance of neu­rons. The study, which was pub­lished in the jour­nal Sci­ence, sug­gest­ed that sleep is a time when the brain (via the glyph­ic sys­tem) clears out those harm­ful mol­e­cules asso­ci­at­ed with neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive con­di­tions such as those asso­ci­at­ed with Alzheimer’s dis­ease.

Sleep problems and disease provocation

Sci­en­tists believe that there are sev­er­al fac­tors that can dis­rupt a per­son­’s sleep, pro­vok­ing meta­bol­ic dis­or­ders and dis­eases. Phys­i­o­log­i­cal fac­tors are dis­tin­guished, such as the pres­ence of sleep apnea, rest­less leg syn­drome and cir­ca­di­an rhythm dis­or­ders (desyn­chrono­sis). There are work-relat­ed fac­tors such as ear­ly morn­ing and night shifts, long com­mutes, and delayed sleep while fly­ing between time zones. Last but not least, envi­ron­men­tal and lifestyle fac­tors are neg­a­tive­ly impact­ed. It is on them that peo­ple them­selves can active­ly influ­ence in order to improve their sleep.

There are sev­er­al con­di­tions that can imme­di­ate­ly indi­cate that there are prob­lems with sleep. This is the inabil­i­ty to fall asleep with­in 15–20 min­utes after going to bed, fre­quent awak­en­ings dur­ing the night sleep, sleep dura­tion less than 7–8 hours. In addi­tion, there is an increased risk of health prob­lems and seri­ous ill­ness if a per­son wakes up not feel­ing rest­ed, or when they are awake feel­ing slug­gish and sleepy, unable to con­cen­trate.

Improve sleep and health

Improve sleep and health

But do not wor­ry right away, the good news is that the patient him­self can do a lot to improve sleep hygiene. Chang­ing your sleep habits is impor­tant to improve your health and per­for­mance. Some of the most effec­tive sleep-improv­ing inter­ven­tions may seem the most dif­fi­cult at first. It is impor­tant to get rid of your smart­phone, tablet, TV and oth­er sources of bright light that can dis­rupt sleep sig­nals to the brain. The result is lack of sleep, stress and ill­ness.

But it’s not just about how bed­time rit­u­als are formed. Anoth­er great way to improve sleep is to get enough sun­light, nat­ur­al light through­out the day, espe­cial­ly in the ear­ly morn­ing hours. Again, this has to do with the phys­i­o­log­i­cal peri­ods of sleep and wake­ful­ness of the brain. It is also very impor­tant to find a way to help the brain relax before going to bed, switch from one activ­i­ty to anoth­er.

Some­times sleep prob­lems can only be fixed by a spe­cial­ist. If these are patholo­gies or seri­ous ill­ness­es that dis­rupt falling asleep and sleep, they must be elim­i­nat­ed. It must be under­stood that these prob­lems can affect over­all health, includ­ing the risk of devel­op­ing heart, lung, neu­ro­log­i­cal and oth­er dis­eases. There­fore, you should not try to take drugs on your own, espe­cial­ly sleep­ing pills. They often do not elim­i­nate the prob­lem itself, but only exac­er­bate it.
