Getting to sleep can be a real issue for lots of people. If you’re one of those people, you’re not alone!
Lack of sleep can impact you in so many ways…
- Moody and tired;
- Lack of patience;
- Reduced energy levels;
We have previously written a blog on the best ways to fall asleep quickly which identifies a number of different tips and tricks that you may not have thought of or tried before. Simple methods like ensuring that you get up at the same time every day can really help you reset your sleeping patterns and get a good nights sleep.
The most common issues preventing people from falling asleep is a busy mind. This doesn’t necessarily have to be specifically around stressful situations, it can be simply about mapping out what you are going to do the next day, where you want to go on holiday or what style you should go for when you next have your haircut.
Obviously, stressful thinking can quite clearly provide a block to getting to sleep. Pressures at work, home life challenges, and personal insecurities can quite easily prevent us from falling asleep. The spiral continues, the more tired we are, the harder it becomes to deal with our issues and the more stressful life can become.
