Are Age and Sleep Connected?

Your brain plays a critical role in the timing of your sleep and waking up habits, but sometimes other factors including our own behavior can affect our sleep routine. Age, jet lag, and work can also all dramatically influence your sleeping patterns.

If you are “crashing” when you hit the bed, then you may be sleep deprived. The ideal time it usually takes a person to fall asleep is somewhere between 10-15 minutes. Everyone has their own cycle and every person is different, but this may be a sign that your body is craving more sleep.

Everybody also has a natural alarm clock which enables people to wake up when they want. This natural alarm clock is caused by a burst of the stress hormone adrenocorticotropic. This hormone is usually highest in the early morning between 6-8 am and lowest in the evening between 6- 11 pm.

All sorts of distractions can affect a person’s sleep cycle. Even distractions such as tiny little rays from an alarm clock can be a huge distraction for falling asleep and staying asleep. If you miss about five days of even partial sleep, you’ll could feel the way you would after 3 drinks.

Figuring out a continuous sleep schedule is important to your health today and as you get older. Taking every measure to ensure a good night’s sleep is important at any age, so take care of your body, and you will reap the rewards.
