Description

Sleep is a naturally recurring state of inaction, characterized by the loss of consciousness and increased unresponsiveness to external stimuli. In contrast, wakefulness is the lack of sleep and is marked by consciousness, awareness, and activity. The sleep-wakefulness cycle when disturbed can turn into sleep disorders as Sleep Disorders are a group of conditions that frequently impacts one’s ability to get enough quality sleep. Good sleep is important for a person's physical as well as mental well-being. Studies suggest that sleep disorders affect a substantial amount of the population worldwide and might also be increasing in prevalence. Unfortunately, many of these disorders can go unnoticed and not getting treated in clinical practice. recent data also suggest that sleep disorders are becoming increasingly acknowledged in developing countries like India which contribute towards the awareness of sleep-wake cycle-related disorders.

Sleep is a very important part of our routine. Sleep problems can be the root cause of various problems whether it is blood pressure, heart-related, liver-related or mental health.
