Everyone has a little trouble sleeping now and then. A bad day at work, financial problems, a bad cold, trouble with the kids, a pulled muscle – the list of things that can keep us up at night is endless. Usually sleep disruptions are temporary, fading as problems are resolved and life returns to normal. But sometimes sleepless nights seem to drag on. Night after night sleep eludes us or comes in choppy blocks, leaving us feeling tired and out-of-sorts when morning arrives. If you can’t find a way to solve the problem, eventually those sleepless nights can take a toll on your health, diminish productivity and erode relationships.
You Are Not Alone in Being Sleepless
If you suffer from insomnia, you are not alone. About a third of American adults have trouble sleeping. Just as there is no single cause for sleep problems, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. But there are a number of proven sleep techniques that can be learned and then applied to your own life. You can regain control of your sleep. In my new online sleep course, Master Your Sleep, I will help you understand your sleep patterns, explain available treatments and, most importantly, give you to tools to implement these sleep therapies in your own life.
Sleep Tactics that Get You to Sleep Soundly and Deeply
Two of the most successful sleep techniques are:
Cognitive/Behavioral therapy helps you identify behaviors that prevent you from falling or staying asleep and replace them with habits that promote restful sleep. A wide variety of techniques can be used, including stimulus control, sleep hygiene, sleep environment and sleep training.
Relaxation therapy. Relaxing your mind and body is a necessary precursor to sleep. Meditation, awareness breathing, guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation, aroma therapy and other relaxation therapies help chase away worrying thoughts, relax your muscles and put you in the mood for sleep.
