What Should I Do If I Can't Sleep?
Many of us experience trouble sleeping at one time or another. But if sleep problems are a regular occurrence and interfere with your daily life, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. A sleep disorder is a condition that frequently impacts your ability to get enough quality sleep. Frequently having trouble sleeping can be a frustrating and debilitating experience. You sleep badly at night, which leaves you feeling dead-tired in the morning and whatever energy you have quickly drains throughout the day. But then, no matter how exhausted you feel at night, you still have trouble sleeping.
There's a reason why your brain fires up when you get in bed, even if you've been craving sleep all day. It's called "conditioned arousal" or "learned arousal" where your brain associates your bed with fired up thinking rather than drowsiness and makes falling asleep incredibly difficult. Sleep psychologist Dr Moira Jung from the Sleep Health Foundation says almost every insomniac patient she's ever worked with experiences conditioned arousal. She says it typically starts during a stressful period in a person's life when they lie in bed ruminating about a problem but then doesn't go away. The good thing is that you can re-train your brain to think of bed as a place for rest. Here's how.
Last night I went to sleep at around in the morning cramming for an exam and I woke up way earlier than I usually do for work and had amazing energy throughout the day. This confuses me so much. Why is this? It is shown that the less sleep you get the more active some parts of your brain become, while others become more inactive. When you sleep longer than you should or less than you should, you disturb your sleeping patterns, or circadian rhythm. This causes you to either wake up during a REM deep sleep cycle and feel even more tired or to wake up before you even hit the deep sleep cycle and be more alert. The more you sleep the better your brain can perform and the more information you can retain.

A nyone who has ever experienced insomnia will know how hellish it can be. Lying in bed and willing yourself to drift off, while your mind refuses to shut down, is frustrating but also incredibly anxiety-inducing. Perhaps there is some comfort, however, in knowing that you are not alone. This week the actor Kim Cattrall told the Radio Times about her chronic insomnia, claiming it forced her to pull out of a London stage play. When we asked for your stories about insomnia, we heard from from self-described poor sleepers about how long they had struggled and how they dealt with it. Some put their sleep issues down to genetics. Annie Doyle, who is 45 and from Lincoln, says it runs in her family.
