One of the most important things about insomnia is that it’s our reaction about being awake that causes us to determine how long it takes us to keep fall back asleep. We create our insomnia by how we react to being awake. For example, the majority of people who see a sleep a specialist report that they might have had some sort of initial event in their life that cause stress or higher thought concentration. Now, that initial event might cause some sleeplessness which is perfectly natural.
This happens to normal sleepers all the time. But, the difference is for some people they suddenly are shocked and do not like that feeling which associates a new fear aspect to that anxious feeling. When you have a warning signal that occurs in your brain it opens you up to the opportunity of having those thoughts again. The next night may come and they think, I didn’t have a very good night last night and I hope it doesn’ t happen again. Suddenly, they are is an opportunity to enter into what some call a vicious cycle of insomnia, whereby you start actually worrying about sleeping which that person has never experienced before.
The annoying thing about it in a way is that, the more you start to worry about sleeping the less you sleep. How can you stop these thoughts from happening? The truth is you cannot stop these unforeseen circumstances from affecting you and your thoughts before sleep. The only way to cure insomnia is to welcome these thoughts at night. Sleep is a time for the loss of control and unconsciousness, thus we have to welcome the loss of control mentally and physically in order to fall asleep.
There are many “remedies” for insomnia symptoms, but until you come to grasp with the above understanding you will not be able to change you mentality that causes your chronic insomnia or consistent sleeplessness. The only way to find the cure for insomnia is to change your mental approach to controlling your thinking during bedtime. If you don’t fight for control of your thoughts, then you won’t fight to go to sleep.
