Lost in a Room with Chronic Insomnia

Insomnia is one of the hardest conditions to make people understand when you are afflicted by it. the most common response to it is that the person should try going to bed earlier. Or that they should try and work out. While this can often assist with mild cases of insomnia where the individual doesn’t often suffer from it, more severe cases like individuals who suffer from it Chronically often find themselves trying to explain that those things often don’t help. They certainly make the person more tired thant hey already are, but for whatever reason they still either can’t get to sleep or sleep the whole night through.

I personall, as a sufferer of Chronic Insomnia, have come to blame a number of variables. Stress is one. I’ve found many individuals who suffer from Chronic Insomnia are also the ones who appear to be very effective in managing stress in their lives. They are often happy people who don’t show negative response to highly stressful situations that should often test a person’s limits. They are also often heavy thinkers that have a hard time turning off their mind to things that they are dealing with on a daily basis. I also have found the sleeping arrangements to play a role. The condition of the bed and pillows have a huge effect on how well a person can sleep. If you have an uncomfortable bed or beat up pillows. You might think they are broken in and comfortable; that doesn’t mean that they actually are so. These individuals can understand on an intellectual level what is needed to address the insomnia, but actually following through can be difficult.

Personally my thoughts are that when you are able replace the broken down bed and pillows. Try and take time to sit back, and relax from the days activities. And finally just sit back and take some deep breaths. Clear your mind and just focus on breathing. Itcan have a huge effect on sleeping when you are unable to stop thinking about things.

I hope you all have a good night’s sleep soon.
