Sleep Normally Again
You want to sleep deeply and regularly every night …. right? You can overcome insomnia – read on!
Falling asleep is so easy when you are doing it every night.
But the problem is that if you ask people who fall asleep easily and stay asleep all night long exactly how they do it, most people either don’t know or can’t describe it.
And when we get out of good sleeping habits and develop insomnia, typically we do all the wrong things in our attempts to nod off.
Common Sleep Mistakes
Here are some of the common mistakes people make in their attempts to fall asleep
- Tossing and turning – you simply can’t nod off if you are moving too much
- Trying to fall asleep – you never did that when you were sleeping well
- Worrying about being able to go to sleep – this will just keep you awake
- Thinking about things that happened today or that are going to happen tomorrow – thinking requires your conscious mind to stay awake which is exactly what you don’t want
Insomnia can be very frustrating and each sleepless night creates more stress in your body. Your body (and mind) needs natural deep sleep to repair and rejuvenate both mind and body so that you awake refreshed and ready for the challenges of the day ahead.
Can Lack Of Sleep Cause Dizziness?
Some people suffer from sleep apnea without ever knowing they have the condition. In certain cases, sleep apnea causes oxygen deprivation which can lead to dizziness when you wake up in the morning.
