In current times, many times we are too immersed in our daily routine. The stress of work situations, life in the city, the pressures they suffer daily ... All these factors and many more we can generate problems to the point, for example, loss of appetite, inability to sleep disorders and many more.
The problems are part of life. So much so that even in sleep we do. For example, we got up after having had a long night of sleep, but (OH problem,) we are tired. We lay down in looking for a good sleepy, but (OH problem!) We could not sleep. We sleep, but (OH problem!) We woke up continuously throughout the night. When such problems happen to us every once in a while, go and go (no problem), but if the experience is repeated continuously becomes a matter of concern. Sleep is essential for proper human development and its changes have consequences for the rest of our day.
The melatonin is a hormone that occurs naturally in our body, which has many functions at different levels, interfering primarily in adjusting our "internal clock", which adjusts the cycles of sleep and wakefulness. If you do not know what it is melatonin, we tell you the importance of this hormone in our body.
A study coordinated by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Helsinki, in collaboration with the School of Public Health at the University of Texas and the Department of Epidemiology at University College London, is proposed as objective to investigate whether working long hours predicts some forms of sleep disorder: sleep shortened, difficulty falling asleep, waking frequently, waking early and waking up tired.
Thousands of people worldwide suffer from disturbances in their sleep and this is more common than we think. Oddly enough, one of the causes of insomnia is food, in addition to being stress, anxiety, emotional problems and overwork among other causes.
