1. Disturbed sleep
It is an age when the world races ahead of the hands of the clock. We have lost peace of life by racing behind expectations, dreams and some more ambitions. Every person is striving towards earning as much money as he can and build as many facilities as he can. In all this, we are, somewhere, losing out the core of human life, viz. mental and physical wellness. Having a good night’s sleep and waking up to a fresh new day, with no tensions and no deadlines to follow nor answerable to anybody. Can we find such lucky people anymore? Even small kids are bereft of such a luck, while they keep pacing from six am to 10 pm behind school, tuition classes, and projects and seem to have the free spirited happiness of life.
In this fast paced life, loss of sleep or insomnia looks to be alarmingly common. Apart from complete loss of sleep, there are other sleep disorders like not having a deep slumber, frequent awakening due to dreams, falling asleep only to wake up a while later and then unable to sleep again, a mind that does not go quiet even when asleep or the brain continuing to function even while asleep.
Reasons and symptoms: mental stress is the key reason for loss of sleep. The mind faces stress due to worries, exertion or some kind of pressure. When a person keeps unexpressed feelings of anger and bitterness, he is unable to sleep. Constipation, indigestion, over eating at night and excessive amounts of tea, coffee, alcohol consumption or smoking, improper diet can also cause disturbed sleep. Many times, just the thought about whether I shall get a good night’s sleep is enough to lose sleep.

The adults face problems like irritation, loss of memory, lack of concentration, feeling sleepy in the day, frequent mouth ulcers, loss of taste, etc. His behavior differs because of a disturbed sleep.
