Insomnia and your mental health

Many people underestimate the importance of sleep and fail to realise that it is one of the most critical components of maintaining good mental health. Sleep plays a crucial role in regulating mood and emotions. When we don't get enough sleep, we are more likely to experience irritability, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, and depression. Insomnia affects millions of people across the world and can have a huge impact on people’s quality of life. Insomnia can also exacerbate existing mental health conditions, making it more difficult to manage symptoms. 

Tips to support a good sleep routine  

Improving your bedtime routine or “sleep hygiene” is one of the best first things to consider if you’re struggling with insomnia. Here are some tips to help you get a better night's sleep: 

  1. Stick to a consistent sleep schedule, even on weekends. 

  1. Create a relaxing bedtime routine. 

  1. Avoid stimulating activities before bed, such as watching TV or using electronic devices. 

  1. Make sure your bedroom is cool, dark, and quiet. 

  1. Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed. 

  1. Exercise regularly, but not too close to bedtime. 

  1. Don’t get hung up on the numbers – The expectation that adults need eight hours sleep is a nice idea but in realitythat’s an average and there’s no one size fits all approach to sleep. Everyone is different, some people may need more, some less and the requirement can change depending on your age and lifestyle.  

If you’re still struggling with insomnia you can certainly seek professional help and the cognitive behaviouralhypnotherapy I do can support you to reduce your insomnia. We can develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. One of the key benefits of hypnotherapy for insomnia is that it is a completely natural solution. Unlike medication, which can have unwanted side effects, hypnotherapy is safe and gentle. It can also be a much more long-term solution, as it helps you address the root causes of insomnia, develop coping useful coping strategies and routines rather than simply masking the symptoms. Hypnotherapy is also incredibly relaxing and gentle so our sessions will also give you a chance to rest and recharge.
