    Insomnia is a growing problem - why?

    I recently started having trouble sleeping, more so than before. I am struggling to sleep more than 2 or 3 hours a night. I wake up and still tired as heck, not able to fall back asleep. I looking into some things that can help me and ordered a new pillow as well as some tart cherry supplements for a boost in natural melatonin.

    Upon my research for solutions, I noticed tons of studies and graphs showing that insomnia is a major issue a lot of adults and even some teens and children face today. While I think I can pinpoint where mine is coming from (anxiety and GERD trouble), many people can't seem to find a cause. Some spend months or years suffering through it.

    Why do you think insomnia is such a big issue today? Most studies seem to be in agreeance that over 40% of the adult population has some variation of sleeping trouble.

    Poor diet, chemicals in everything we eat/drink, over-medication, a less active lifestyle.

    any combination of these contemporary factors may be the cause, and I'm no exception. I often struggle to sleep. Probably due to me not really exerting myself physically during the day, a high-stress job & home life, as well as a worryingly high caffeine intake.

    This is probably the most common cause... Not active enough, stress from work/home, and caffeine dependency. I am sure a big part of my issue is down to not being active. I sit at my computer all day and night. I use it for work and entertainment. Aside from cleaning the house and doing things of that nature, I don't move much.

    I remember reading that they are calling sitting the new smoking because of the health complications it can cause. I am making an effort to move more but it is a slow process cause I am always tired lol

    One big factor is artificial light, especially that which comes from computer and smartphone screens. Those simulate artificial daylight, and they can keep you away due to human circadian rhythms being connected to daylight.

    I use a filter on my phone at all times and have one set on my computer to be on starting at 9PM. I am probably going to move it back though and time it with the sun better. People who use their phones in bed seem to be the most susceptible to this kind of sleep disturbance. Some refer to it as "blue light syndrome".
