Unhelpful Sleep Beliefs


Do you remember the last time you got a good night’s sleep? For many, the answer to that question is too difficult to remember. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues impacting sleep do have options. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treatments available, and he has helped people in your shoes before. With his help, you can be the next person to get back on the road to restorative sleep!

When you aren’t getting quality sleep, there are a number of misconceptions that may make you feel worse. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing how to address the most unhelpful beliefs about sleep.

  • Function – Many people believe that if they get a poor night sleep, they will automatically not function well the next day. While there may be some impact, the effects tend to be small, and there is small correlation between insomnia and daytime sleepiness.
  • Plans – As you are laying there, unable to sleep, you may be worried that you’ll have to cancel tomorrow’s plans. However, as previously mentioned, the impact is generally small, and you should be fine doing what you wanted. Knowing this may even help you sleep better.
  • Effort – Most things in life require effort, but sleep is not one of them. Trying to fall asleep will only make things more difficult, and end up putting more pressure on yourself. Give yourself the right conditions, and then let go emotionally.

When you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, you may struggle to figure out the causes. However, this can end up doing more harm than good, as you add another stressor to your situation. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues impacting sleep have enough to worry about. So, let Dr. Jay R. Goldman focus on creating a treatment that works for you. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.
