Support Group for Sleep Struggles

The lights are switched off and the house goes quiet in a jiffy. The cozy quilts are wrapped around your children and spouse. They have slipped into a deep sleep in a moment. You already hear their breathing rhythm. You stare at the ceiling fan and wait. Your sleep hasn’t arrived yet.

Sleep struggles are hard to deal with. Sleep is crucial for the normal functioning of human bodies and the importance of quality sleep in a day cannot be dismissed. However, some people like you get into trouble of falling asleep or disturbed sleep or no sleep at all. This can have an effect on the next day mornings when you start to feel drowsy, restless and fatigued.

Why am I struggling to sleep?

The reasons for sleep struggles vary from person to person. It can have direct links with your mental health or physical health and probably your lifestyle choices too. The most common reasons for sleep struggles can be:

• Being under a lot of stress
• Depression
• Feelings of anxiety and worry
• Over-excitement
• Recent traumatic experience
• Variation in circadian rhythm
• Chronic pain or illness

The reasons may be different for one person to another. However, the struggle for falling into sleep can be very daunting for every individual. Constantly tossing and turning on the bed to catch up the much-needed rest for the day and failing to sleep makes one totally exhausted. You may start to wonder whether you could really fall asleep one day.
