Cause Of Insomnia Psychological

Producing Unwanted Sleep Problems

The cause of Insomnia Psychological is often vulnerability.  Some people seem more likely than others to experience insomnia, just as some people tend to get headaches or upset stomachs.  Simply knowing that you may experience insomnia and that it will not last too long can be helpful in dealing with it when it occurs.

Persistent Stress

Exposure to stress may contribute to the development or worsening of insomnia.  Relationship problems, a chronically ill child or an unrewarding career may contribute to sleep problems.  If you suffer from these types of stresses you should seek counseling to gain a new outlook on your troubles and more control in your life.

Learned Insomnia

Learned Insomnia is also known as Psycho Physiological Insomnia.  If you sleep poorly, you may worry about not being able to function well during the day.  You may try harder to sleep at night, but unfortunately this determined effort could make you more alert, set off a new round of worried thoughts, and cause more sleep loss.

Doing activities in and around the bedroom - changing into your night cloths, turning off the lights, pulling up the blankets - can become linked with the sleep problems that follow.  Through repetition these bedtime activities can then trigger over-arousal and insomnia.

Some individuals with learned insomnia have trouble sleeping in their own beds yet may fall asleep quickly when they don't intend to while reading the newspaper, sleeping away from home or watching TV.

Just a few nights of poor sleep during a month can be enough to produce a cycle of poor sleep and increase your worry about it.  Treatment for learned insomnia aims to improve sleep habits and reduce unnecessary worry.
