Insomnia

InsomniaInsomnia can be one of the most frustrating and debilitating conditions. Lack of sleep affects us in so many ways, physically and mentally. Sleep problems may be caused when you cannot get to sleep, or if you wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep. Sleep apnoea, snoring, restless legs, worry, stress and anxiety may be the original cause, and if it lasts too long it creates a new sleeping pattern for you which is difficult to get out of. Tossing and turning in the middle of the night can have a significant impact on your daily life, your emotions intensify and you can become angry. It affects your family life, your work life and social life.

Causes of InsomniaA few tips would be to ensure your bedroom is dark and the right temperature, to ensure maximum comfort; develop a sleep routine, so you are going to bed at the same time every night and set your alarm to get up at the same time every morning. Don’t drink alcohol, or try not to take any form of sleep inducing medication. There are loads of relaxing music you can listen to help you focus on your breathing, and help your mind switch off.  Sometimes you are so anxious about not getting to sleep it makes it worse, so by creating an environment for sleep is a positive step in the right direction. Try also spraying lavander on your pillow.

Ensure you exercise and get enough daylight too. Complimentary therapies can also be useful such as acupuncture, aromatherapy and reflexology. If you are looking for a Reflexologist in your area, please visit the Association of Reflexologists (AOR) to find a reputable and properly qualified Reflexologist in your area. As with all therapies, you want someone who has experience and knows what they are doing so you can get maximum benefit from a treatment.
