Everyone has a night or two where they just can’t sleep. They find themselves tossing and turning, but not sleeping. They look at the clock and watch as the time goes by until they realize they are going to pay for this the next day. Sure enough, they wake up exhausted and spend the rest of the day ready to rest their head and take a nap at any given moment.

There are some people who suffer from insomnia on a regular basis. There are many reasons that insomnia can occur and there are ways to not only treat it, but habits you can form to make sure you get a good night’s sleep all the time.

 

Different Types of Insomnia

There are several different ways you can tell if you have insomnia. If you just can’t fall asleep, keep waking up at night and can’t get back to sleep, wake up too early, or when you wake up you still feel tired, it is most likely that you are suffering from insomnia.

People either find that they cannot sleep because they have health issues or personal issues that are keeping them from sleeping. Your bout of insomnia can be a short-term issue or it can be chronic.

Acute insomnia can be from any of the following reasons:

  • Sickness
  • Physical or emotional problems
  • Life stress – divorce, losing your job, changing jobs, death of someone you love
  • Certain medications
  • Uncomfortable surroundings – bright lights, too noisy, too hot or too cold
  • A switch in your sleep patterns from a change in jobs from day shift to night shift or jet lag from traveling
  • Losing an hour when switching to Daylight Savings Time

Chronic insomnia doesn’t go away immediately and can be caused by:

  • Chronic pain at night
  • Prolonged stress
  • Major anxiety and depression
