“Everyone has a bad night's sleep from time to time, but if you believe you are consistently not getting enough rest, try to assess the way you feel after your normal amount of sleep.
Do you find yourself yawning or nodding off when you should be alert? Do you have to drink coffee or other caffeinated products to maintain your level of alertness? Do you find it hard to stay awake while driving, reading, or watching TV?
If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, then you may not be getting enough sleep, or experiencing some type of sleep disturbance on a regular basis.
