CIRCADIAN RHYTHM SLEEP DISORDERS

1-800-MORE-SLEEP™

Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders are generally caused by changes in routine, abnormal work hours, or travel.  Failure to maintain a healthy, regular sleep schedule will likely result in a Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder.  Insomnia can also contribute to Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder and Irregular Sleep-Wake Rhythm. 

What Are Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders

Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders involve a problem in a person’s “internal clock” or circadian rhythm that results in difficulty sleeping.  Your internal circadian clock runs on a 24 hour cycle, and regulates hormone production, digestion and, of course, sleeping.  Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders are characterized by a hard time initiating sleep, a struggle to maintain sleep, waking up early and being unable to fall back asleep, and non-restorative or poor quality sleep.

What causes cirdadian rhthym sleep disorders

Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders are generally caused by changes in routine, abnormal work hours, or travel. Failure to maintain a healthy, regular sleep schedule will likely result in a Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder.  Insomnia can also contribute to Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder and Irregular Sleep-Wake Rhythm. 

Treating cirdadian rhthym sleep disorders

The best way to treat Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders is by establishing and following a healthy, standard sleep schedule.  Delayed and Advanced Sleep Phase Disorders can be greatly reduced by consistently going to bed and waking up at normal hours.  Doing this on a regular basis retrains your internal clock, allowing your clock to adjust to more normal hours of sleeping and waking.
