How come some seniors over 60 have irregular sleeping patterns?
Sleep changes could have multiple reasons. Medication, hormonal changes, a sedentary lifestyle, and diet are the most common causes. It is highly recommended to talk to your doctor about the current medication that may cause this phenomenon.
Another reason is that our bodies produce less melatonin as we age. This hormone is the one that puts us to sleep. Some food sources like nuts and milk contain melatonin. Low physical activity is another factor. So adding simple workouts to your daily routine can be helpful.
