What Causes Insomnia?

You have insomnia if you regularly:

  • find it hard to go to sleep
  • wake up several times during the night
  • lie awake at night
  • wake up early and cannot go back to sleep
  • still feel tired after waking up
  • find it hard to nap during the day even though you’re tired
  • feel tired and irritable during the day
  • find it difficult to concentrate during the day because you’re tired

If you don’t want to end up seeing little men in yellow coats like Insomnia Book Review * Stephen King, you need to change your sleeping habits.

Do

  • go to bed and wake up at the same time every day
  • relax at least 1 hour before bed, for example, take a bath or read a book
  • make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet – use curtains, blinds, an eye mask or ear plugs if needed
  • exercise regularly during the day
  • make sure your mattress, pillows and covers are comfortable
