Overcoming Insomnia.  Insomnia is a chronic inability to sleep well. Do you lie awake at night worrying about the presentation you have the next day, or the impending confrontation with a colleague, or about your financial affairs? Do you struggle to get your mind to stop turning over the events of the day? Insomnia has reached epidemic proportions. Today, half the world’s adult population complains of sleeping problems. If you find that you can’t fall asleep, or you wake up in the early hours of the morning and can’t get back to sleep, you probably have some form of insomnia.

Side Effects of Insomnia

Those who suffer from insomnia are constantly tired, anxious, and can even be emotionally unstable. They become irritable, and are unable to react appropriately to situations. Insomnia makes it difficult to learn new things and impairs memory. Insomnia is linked to weight gain and depression. It has clear negative effects on your state of physical health as it significantly reduces the ability of the immune system to prevent illness. And of course, lying awake at night worrying about the fact that you can’t sleep just makes it worse!

Using Sleeping Pills to Treat Insomnia

Sleeping tablets inhibit deep sleep and reduces the quality of sleep. In addition, the body develops a tolerance to drugs, requiring larger and larger doses for the same effect. The dangers of addiction and accidental overdosing are a very real side-effect of sleeping tablets.
