Stress and Insomnia

Stress can be explained as an individual’s body’s way of responding to any kind of threat or demand or Stress is a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical and mental equilibrium. . When an individual feel threatened, nervous system responds by releasing a number of stress hormones including adrenaline and cortisol, which rouse the body for emergency reaction. In such cases heart pounds faster, blood pressure rises, muscles tighten, senses become sharper and breath quickens. These physical changes can increase an individual’s strength and stamina, speed their reaction time, and enhance their focus. This is even known as the “fight or flight” response or mobilization stress response and it is yours body’s way of protecting you.

Insomnia is also known as sleeplessness, it is a sleep disorder where people have trouble in sleeping.  They may have difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep as long as they desire.  Insomnia is followed by daytime sleepiness, irritability, low energy and depressive mood.
