My life was severely affected when I started to suffering from insomnia.
Each night you hope you can get a good nights sleep to relieve some of the tiredness you feel so come the morning it all starts again when you wake feeling tired.
The effect of this regular lack of proper rest is that you lack energy and enthusiasm for life. You may find it doesn’t take much to make you angry which can lead to problems with family life causing your relationship to suffer.
Insomnia seems to drain you of all your energy and your work may suffer because you are so unproductive.There is a risk of ultimately being dismissed thanks to your inability to correctly carry out your duties.
No one should be in any doubt about it insomnia causes major difficulties for those who have to live with a shortage of sleep. It is all the more frustrating the typical person in the street will have no idea what it is really like to suffer from constant sleep deprivation.
Everyone has an occasional sleepless night sometimes leading to feelings of tiredness the following day. So think how you would manage your life if this were happening to you night after night and week after week. Everything would seem like a huge effort and you might feel you were not able to do anything that required you to be active.
This is how insomniacs may feel every day which makes every day a challenge. There are those who seem to almost thrive on four or five hours sleep most nights but for many this way of life seems a pretty miserable existence so when you get to the end of the day it feels like you have achieved something. There seems to be little true understanding of what sleep is all about or what it’s purpose is and why we need so much of it.
We do seem to be rather short of answers and the solutions for lack of sleep we are offered vary in their effectiveness.
Relaxation seems to be a key component to falling asleep therefore it is safe to assume that relaxing your mind and before going to bed relaxing in a warm bath often seem to help.
A milky drink taken in a calm, restful bedroom can be an effective aid to a good nights sleep.
