Can’t Sleep at Night? Restless Sleeper? Awaken Tired in the Morning?
Insomnia and sleep disorders can come about for several reasons. They may be due reactions to medication or to emotional disturbances which may result from unprocessed personal issues. Some people cannot get to sleep in the first place.
Others may wake up early and be unable to get back to sleep. People, who have disturbances in slow wave sleep, that is when you normally dream, can suffer profound physical and mental exhaustion.
It is important to find the cause of your insomnia instead of simply ignoring the problem by taking another sleeping pill. Medical causes should be ruled out so it is advisable to check with your doctor as maybe your hormones are out of kilter and not functioning properly. If there is a physical cause for the insomnia then that must be treated first. Even if there is a physical cause, hypnotherapy might be able to help you to restore your natural ability to get a good night’s rest. You were not born with bad sleeping habits, you learnt how to do that along the way.
The Effects of Poor Quality Sleep
People with sleep problems can end up suffering very significant impairment to their lives, with poor daytime functioning and reduced well-being. Among the particular problems you might experience are: difficulty concentrating; poor memory; lack of interest in sex; difficulty coping with both major and minor problem situations; inability to accomplish needed tasks; reduced ability to fully enjoy social and family relations. In general, not getting proper rest leaves you tired, anxious and feeling emotionally unstable and may also lead to depression.
