Sleep is an essential part to help your body and mind reset. If you can’t fall asleep, the brain cannot function properly, impairing your ability to concentrate, think clear, and remember memories. Sleep serves a variety of purposes including:

  • Learning and memory consolidation: Sleep helps with focus and concentration and allows the brain to register and organize memories
  • Emotional regulation: Sleep helps people regulate their emotions and better manage the physical and psychological effects of stress
  • Judgment and decision making: Sleep influences and person’s ability to recognize danger and threats. Healthy sleep supports good decision making a and other executive functions
  • Problem solving: Research has shown that when you “sleep on” a difficult problem or decisions, then a person has a higher probability of answering it or solving it 
  • Energy conservation: Sleep allows a person to conserve energy through an extended period of time that involves reduced activity 
  • Growth and healing: Sleep provides the release of growth hormones necessary for the body’s tissue to grow and repair itself
  • Immunity: Sleep supports immune functions which allows the body to fight off diseases and infections.

Even when we try to sleep and get the benefits of sleep, there are factors that contribute to why we can’t fall asleep. Below are some of those reasons.

Temperature of our Sleeping Space 

During the four sleep cycles, the body’s temperature tends to drop which are biological cues to tell the internal clock to sleep. The body cools itself down for sleep by sending heat away from the core. The core body temperature is generally around 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit and fluctuates by about 2 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the night. If your bedroom is at the wrong temperature, this could throw off the natural balance in our sleep and keep you awake.

Noise Pollution

Noise has a major impact on our sleep. When we are exposed to too much noise during sleep, we may wake up which causes a fragmented night’s sleep which is less refreshing. Even the noises that don’t wake us up can cause subconscious effects on sleep by changing the time we spend in certain sleep stages. Nighttime noises can also cause extra production of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol which can cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure.

Poor Sleep Routine

Having a consistent schedule is an important contribution in receiving seven to nine hours of sleep each night. A consistent sleep schedule has many benefits such as having an easier time falling asleep and more energy during the day. It ensures that an individual gets the correct amount of sleep each night and can align systems in your body that signal when it’s time to go to bed and when it’s time to wake up.  A balanced and consistent sleep schedule provides benefits such as:

  • Lower stress levels 
  • Better mood
  • Maintaining a healthy weight 
  • Stronger immune system function
  • Reduced risk of accidents and injuries
  • Improved cognitive function

Lack of Sunlight During the Day 

Light is the most important external factor affecting sleep. Light plays a central role in regulating our circadian rhythm, the body’s internal clock that signals when to be alert and when to rest. Light also affects the production of melatonin, an essential sleep-promoting hormone. Daylight exposure (the type of light we see and how long we are exposed to it) has a critical effect on sleep. When exposed to only natural light, a person’s circadian rhythm becomes closely in line with sunrise and sunset, staying awake during the day and sleeping when it’s dark. The brain then sends signals throughout the body to control organs and other systems depending on the time of day. Excess or poorly timed artificial light exposure can cause a person’s circadian rhythm to be off with the day-night schedule. This can throw a sleep schedule off course.

Exercising too Close to Bed

Walking and exercising each day can provide health benefits and may even improve your sleep. Physical activity for at least 30 minutes each day is crucial, but avoid doing any strenuous physical activity before bedtime. Exercising too close to bedtime is an issue because it can change the timing of your circadian rhythm. Also, when you exercise at any time of day, your body releases elevated levels of stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol). When your body is in stress mode and battling a higher than normal body temperature, you naturally find it harder to fall asleep. Even if you are able to fall asleep, it can still lower your sleep efficiency and reduce your total sleep time. 

Blue Lights

The blue light in technology restricts the production of melatonin and leads to a disruption in your circadian rhythm. Being exposed to blue light in the evening can trick our brain into thinking it is still daytime which can make us feel more alert instead of tired. Common sources of blue light include:

  • Fluorescent lights
  • LED lights
  • Smartphones
  • Televisions
  • Computer screens
  • Tablets
  • E-readers
  • Video games
