Debilitating: Insomnia affects nearly a third of Britons at some point in their lives
Falling asleep sounds easy, but the reality is many of us struggle with it on a regular basis. We lay in bed at night tossing and turning, our minds racing with worries and lists of things to do. Or maybe you go straight to sleep and then wake up in the middle of the night and then toss and turn until morning. Whatever your sleeping issues are, they are frustrating, they can deny you much needed rejuvenation, increasing your stress levels, leaving you exhausted.
In order to go to sleep, we need to be in a relaxed state. If someone is constantly worrying about something, either consciously or unconsciously, maybe suffering from depression, this will prevent the natural process of sleep. If someone suffers disturbed sleep over a period of time, they can become anxious in advance about whether or not they will have a good nights sleep. This can lead to the problem continuing even after the initial cause of insomnia has disappeared. The problem of not being able to sleep has now becomes a 'habit'.
Prescription drugs, sleeping tablets and natural remedies can sometimes help in the short term, but prolonged use will nullify the effects and greater doses will reduce their effect and eventually higher doses with need to be taken. Hypnotherapy is an excellent way of dealing with the problem of insomnia, often within just a couple of sessions your sleeping will improve and for many it returns to normal sleeping pattern.
