No matter if you are a guest or a host this Thanksgiving, there’s no denying that Turkey Day can cause a lot of stress. Whether you are worried about seeing certain people, being able to accommodate so many guests, setting unrealistic expectations, your cooking skills, or just don’t want to get involved in the family drama, the weeks leading up to the big day can be draining.
This constant worry can take a toll on your health both physically and mentally by jeopardizing the quality of your sleep. The main cause of sleeplessness is feeling worried or nervous, and a major holiday like Thanksgiving can cause individuals to excessively worry about future events and/or feel overwhelmed by responsibilities. Not being able to sleep as a result of stress will only make the problem worse, so as the holiday season approaches, it is important to learn how to manage your symptoms in order to get a good night’s sleep.
Insomnia can be either short-term or chronic. In order for the condition to be chronic, you must experience recurrent symptoms for three months. However, if you only find yourself having trouble sleeping at night around the holiday season, you are likely experiencing short-term insomnia, so it's important to manage your symptoms and find effective ways to fall asleep.
