Getting enough good quality sleep is important for our health and wellbeing. When we are deprived of sleep it can affect our memory, mood, reaction times and quality of life. If you’re not sleeping well or show symptoms of sleep disorders, talk to your GP about booking a sleep study.
The common symptoms of sleep disorders are:
- Loud snoring
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Irritability or mood changes
- Restless sleep
- Morning headaches
- Poor concentration or memory
- Drowsy driving
- Passing urine frequently during the night
- Impotence / loss of libido

Drowsy driving is the dangerous combination of driving and sleepiness or fatigue, which can make your driving worse than if you have been drinking alcohol. Learn to recognise the warning signs and know when to take a break.
- Slow blinking or heavy eyelids
- Eyes closing or going out of focus
- Difficulty keeping your head up
- Inability to stop yawning
- Difficulty concentrating – can’t remember the last kms
- Drifting between lanes, near misses
An underlying sleep condition may be the cause of drowsy driving. Talk to your GP today about booking a sleep study with Genesis SleepCare and stay safe on the roads this holiday season.
