Insomnia Myths


Not getting restorative sleep at night will take its toll on anyone. The consequences from a lack of quality sleep occur at both short term and long term durations, so it is important to try to get your issue under control. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues may feel especially hopeless. The good news is that Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped patients in your shoes before, and he is ready to help you. He has a number of treatment options that can help turn your life around for the better.

Insomnia is a difficult issue to deal with, but there are many myths associated with the condition. A recent Psychology Today article looked at some of these problems.

  • Eight Hours – We always talk about “getting your eight hours,” but different people need different amounts of sleep. Generally, a person needs somewhere between five and ten hours, and you may need to experiment to figure out how much you need.
  • Interruptions – The effects of being woken up throughout the night can be extreme. In a study, those who slept for seven hours, but were woken up several times, felt as poorly as those who only slept for four hours.
  • Bedtime – Many of us have been told to go to bed and wake up at the same time, every day. And, while waking up at a similar hour can help you avoid jet lag feelings, you should really only go to bed when you feel tired.

Sometimes, insomnia can be exacerbated by trying to fall asleep too hard. When you put pressure on yourself to do something, it generally doesn’t work out how you hope. However, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many techniques and strategies to put you on the path to restorative sleep. He knows that once you get to the root of your issue, sleep may be much easier to come by. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
