Are you struggling to get enough sleep at night? Countless people try and fail to get the sleep that their bodies require. However, those dealing with insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues plaguing sleep do have hope. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treated many patients in your situation before, and he is ready to help you next. When you get started on treatment, you may find that the solution is much easier to obtain than you had thought.

Last week, we started discussion of Psychology Today’s piece about unhelpful sleep beliefs. Today, we look at a few more thoughts that can disturb your rest.

  • Health – Many studies point to the negative health effects of insomnia, but it is unclear which process leads to which. In many cases, it very well may be other issues causing the insomnia in the first place. Obviously, insomnia isn’t good for us, but don’t magnify the process while trying to sleep.
  • Duration – You always hear about the elusive eight hours of sleep. However, adults are recommended to get 7-9 hours, and every single person is different. There are those who can do just fine on six hours a night.
  • Catching up – Some people fall into the temptation of trying to immediately catch up on lost sleep. But, this can be counterproductive when you end up laying in bed for a longer amount of time. Stick to your normal sleep schedule, and you will work it out.

When you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, all of life’s tasks can seem mountainous. However, the wrong mindset isn’t going to help you overcome the problem. Fortunately, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and more can find help. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to help you get to the root of your issue, and get you back on the path to restorative sleep. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.
