    I am fed up with sleepless nights in my life, is this Insomnia?

    Hi, I am really fed up with sleepless nights; I don’t know whether it is due to all day stressful work or some emotional imbalance I am facing these days? I have had some information about these symptoms but it tells the different story, shall I believe them and act accordingly? Here I found that information:

    I've had a similar problem recently and my therapist has given me relaxation exercises but they never seem to help. I'm told it can just be down to an over-active brain that doesn't switch off at nights, v. annoying and I just have to try and train myself out of it!

    It would be worth seeing a doctor about this problem. If it is just stress-related, your doctor can refer you to a psychologist/sleep specialist etc to give you some help. Medication may also help. Your doctor is the expert though, so go and see him/her first.

    Consider having EFT emoitional freedom technique. It works. Look it up on the internet.

    It seems many people go through stages of this and once in a 'sleepless' pattern it seems difficult to break.

    You need to regulate your circadian rhythm so: firstly do not drink too much alcohol before bedtime, maybe one glass of wine. Secondly get into a routine, have a bath, watch some TV or read a book and go to bed at exactly the same time. Do not watch TV or read in bed. Bed is for sleeping in this instance and you have to recognise it as such. Just as you are about to turn the light off try a melatonin tablet, this helps to re-adjust your sleeping pattern. If you wake up in the night and cannot get back to sleep, get up, change your surroundings, maybe get a warm drink and then go back to bed to sleep.

    Melatonin is available in most health food stores or on the web. Recommended site is antiagingcentral.com

    Good luck! Sweet dreams.

    Why give it a name? if I say I have 'insomnia' I have decided on having a problem. Work on creating your day how you want it to be. Use yourself up in acting and moving towards your goals and you will 'sleep the sleep of the just'!
