If you’re stuck in a sleepless rut worrying about your lack of sleep, you could be experiencing sleep anxiety.
This sleep anxiety cycle contributes to many individuals’ long-term insomnia symptoms. Negative emotions surrounding one’s ability to sleep can make sleep a challenging, scary process that only worsens insomnia.
CBT for insomnia is a long-term solution 70-80% more effective than sleeping pills.
insomnia affects roughly 30 percent of the general adult population. For some, it is ongoing sleep disruptions and for approximately 10 percent, it is more severe and leads to daytime functional deterioration. Because solid sleep is a necessity for physical and mental health, it is important to be educated on what exactly insomnia is and even more important to seek treatment if you are a victim of the condition.
While COVID-19 has upended many of our lives and placed an additional daily layer of fear in our minds, it is also the culprit of insomnia for some. Instead of sliding between the sheets with the next day to look forward to, the coronavirus causes many of us to stay up beyond our normal time, anxious with fear of the unknown.
