I think we can all agree that a bad night’s sleep is something we all want to avoid.
However, it's reported that 16 million UK adults are suffering from sleepless nights. So, if you are struggling, you're not alone.
Now there could be various reasons for a bad night’s sleep. Some of which are easier to control than others. For example, you can't do much about your neighbour’s dog having a barking session.
But some factors that keep us tossing and turning at night can be addressed. Many insomniacs and those struggling to get to sleep suffer from hyperarousal.
This basically means your ‘fight or flight’ response is still affecting you. It could have been prompted by something that happened to you earlier in the day. Like trying to meet a work deadline or fighting with a partner so is still elevated.
