Although a little stress is a part of life, too much can cause mental and physical disorders if you don't learn to handle it. Studies show that stress is one of the main causes of insomnia, and it must be worked on thoroughly to be able to be reversed, and thus improve the quality of sleep.
How stress can cause insomnia
When people suffer from stress, they experience several emotional, mental, physical and behavioral symptoms, among them we can highlight some of the following:
Physical symptoms of stress
· Sweaty hands
· Nail biting
· Breathing incorrectly
· High blood pressure
All of these stress symptoms manifest themselves in physical illnesses like nausea or stomach ulcers.
Emotional symptoms of stress
· Humor changes
Mental symptoms of stress
· Difficult to focus
· I forget
· Negative thinking
· Depressive thinking
· Irrational thinking
· Behavioral symptoms
· Talk too much
· Social isolation
When people are stressed, they have trouble sleeping. They don't get enough sleep and usually have a hard time falling asleep or get up too early. As a result, their daily work is affected and their personal relationships deteriorate.
When stress interrupts sleep every night, it turns into chronic insomnia, which leads the individual to take sleeping pills or some other alternatives such as alcohol. This makes the person feel constantly tired and unable to function well, leading to drinking too much coffee during the day, which can affect their nervous system.
Tips for managing stress
There are many ways to manage stress, including the following:
· Before going to sleep think about what is bothering you. Make a list of the problems and write a possible solution for each of them.
· Get regular physical exercise.
· Eat healthy and balanced meals.
· Become aware of how you are trying to manage stress. Do you eat too much? Do you skip meals or smoke too much? etc. If you know that for example you will have a job interview tomorrow, make a plan that includes a relaxation, take a warm bath, go to sleep early, listen to some music. This will lead you to feel better about the situation you have to face.
The prostate is a small gland in men. It is part of the male reproductive system. The prostate is about the size and shape of a walnut. It sits low in the pelvis, below the bladder and just in front of the rectum. The prostate helps make semen, the milky fluid that carries sperm from the testicles through the penis when a man ejaculates. The prostate surrounds part of the urethra, a tube that carries urine out of the bladder and through the penis.
