When Tricks For Falling Asleep Backfire

6081795_orig

Everybody knows just how difficult it is to function after a night of poor sleep. Fortunately, fewer know how intensely this can build up when it lingers for days, weeks, or months at a time. But, for those who do, and are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other related issues, all of life’s tasks can seem monumental. The good news is that Dr. Jay R. Goldman can provide treatment options to get you back on the right track. He would love nothing more than to see you on the path to restorative, healthy sleep.

Have you tried specific tricks to fall asleep quicker at night? Psychology Today recently explored this concept, and warned of these signs that things are backfiring.

  • Thinking – Not much will keep you up more than having something on your mind. And, unfortunately, sometimes you start thinking too much about your tricks to fall asleep. If you are debating which trick to try next, they may be doing more harm than good.
  • Anxiety – If you have a trick for falling asleep, you may think that it’s your last hope for getting sleep that night. As a result, you may start to develop anxiety over whether it’s working or not. Don’t allow your trick to be your only hope, or the anxiety it causes may not be worth it.
  • Effort – With most things in life, effort can lead to success. However, when it comes to sleep, we are talking about a state of non-doing. Trying to fall asleep can oftentimes lead us further from sleep. The harder you try, the harder it becomes to achieve.

Are you struggling to get your eight hours (or even six hours) of sleep at night? Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related issues do have hope. Successful treatment with Dr. Jay R. Goldman can make all of life’s problems seem a little smaller. You just need to take the first step, and reach out to him. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
