We see a number of patients on a daily basis suffering from clinical insomnia - Persistent problems falling and staying asleep.
Most cases of insomnia are related to poor sleep habits, depression, anxiety, lack of exercise, chronic illness, or certain medications.
Although there may be underlying causes that require treatment, good #sleephygiene is one of the first tidbits of medical advice we give our clients.
These 6 ways to improve sleep quality are sound. The only thing I would add is:
➡️ Never exercise right before bed
➡️ Limit alcohol consumption before bed.
(Know the difference between CNS depression (caused by alcohol) and good ol’ fashioned sleepiness.)
