Are you also one of the persons suffering from sleep disorders?
Sleep disorders usually do not stop by themselves, but the problem of “becoming independent” develops. This means that our brain takes it for granted (as opposed to constant pain). That is why it is particularly important to break the vicious circle of sleep disorders.
The so-called “vicious circle” already arises with the situation that the person concerned already asks himself the night before falling asleep:
- How long are I awake again?
- Can I fall asleep quickly?
- Do I sleep through the night?
- How can I go through the next day if I do not sleep again?
- Is something wrong in my head because I cannot switch off?
- I’m going crazy if I cannot sleep anymore!
- I will not take sleep aids that are addictive!
- What can I do?
Getting out of this circle is not easy but important!!!
As a result, irritability during the day, lack of concentration, but also physical reactions can be caused, such as:
Palpitations, sweating, tense and consequent pain, including headaches.
The lower graph shows the diabolical cycle:
Sleep disorders occur unpredictably for no apparent reason
sure I can not fall asleep again today
Anger, anger, helplessness, resignation
Tension, alertness or insomnia
Of course, we should reconsider our habits!
These habits promote our insomnia:
- Our body gets out of balance due to irregular bedtime periods (Make sure: after a weekend of sleep we often experience sleep disturbances during the night from Sunday to Monday)
- To catch the lack of sleep at night, we take a short sleep breaks during the day.
- Fall asleep during the TV program. A short nod is enough to find no sleep afterwards.
Alcohol actually improves sleep but worsens the second half of the night
That’s why we explain to you how using essential oils can interrupt the vicious circle of sleep disorders.
