Video: ❶ Sleep Deprivation - A Disease Or A Psychological Aspect?
Statistics show that almost every fifth person living in developed countries suffers from sleep disorders. Indeed, you rarely meet an individual who, at least once in his life, would not experience such an unpleasant feeling as insomnia. Along with other important factors that deprive a person of sleep, psychological ones should be especially noted. What are they all about? Location: Location:
Fear is often the cause of sleep disturbance. Fear of some particular circumstance or just fear of not falling asleep. Sometimes it is unstructured fear - just a person is unconsciously afraid of something and anxious.
Also, feelings of guilt, unfulfilled obligations, the inability to shake off the burden of accumulated problems, excessive fussiness, and so on do not let us fall asleep. And sometimes the cause of insomnia is emotions that overwhelmed us for a long time, but were never thrown out.
In general, all the reasons why we cannot fall asleep stem from psychological problems that we could not solve during the waking period.
Any sleep disturbance, be it late falling asleep, early awakening or nightmares, have a detrimental effect on the human body. Therefore, it is necessary to break all psychological barriers on the way to healthy sleep.
If you want to fall asleep quickly, and to keep your sleep sound, follow these guidelines:
Be mindful of the transition from wakefulness to sleep. Preferably 40-45 minutes before the time when you usually fall asleep (or at least try to fall asleep), you should give up everything exciting - watching TV, playing games on the computer, drinking tonic drinks, lively conversation, etc.
Try to move more slowly before going to bed, slowly.
Set yourself up for sleep and thoughts. Say to yourself some relaxing, soothing words, for example: "Now I will lie down in my comfortable bed, on a clean bed, and with great pleasure I will sleep …"
Already in bed before going to bed, it is best to lie on your back, so that your arms and legs are freely extended. Take a mental look at yourself and think about which muscles you have not been able to relax. Try to get rid of these clamps as well - just do not do this very diligently, strainingly, otherwise the opposite effect may simply turn out.
If you manage to relax, you will immediately feel drowsy. Wish yourself good night and enjoy your sleep.
