More Information

What is insomnia?

Insomnia is a condition where individuals have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Often the sufferer does not feel they have had enough sleep upon waking and therefore feel very tired during the day. Insomnia is not a disease, rather a symptom that can have many different causes. Insomnia commonly occurs as a result of emotional disturbances such as fear, anxiety, stress or depression. Ageing is also associated with changes in sleeping patterns (as we age, there is a need for less sleep). Other factors affecting sleep include sleep apnoea, pain, jet lag, irregular working schedules and shift changes, excitement, hypoglycaemia, restless leg syndrome, excess alcohol or caffeine consumption, some medications or brain injuries.

Health implications of insomnia that occur during the day include fatigue, reduced pain threshold, decreased concentration and memory, irritability, anxiety and low mood, increased risk of accidents, time off work, a reduced quality of life and many other physical and mental illnesses.

Sleep is an extremely important physiological function of the body. Sleeping is considered an antioxidant for the brain as free radicals are removed preventing damage to this part of the body. It is also the time when an important hormone called growth hormone is released which stimulates growth and repair within the body.

Lifestyle Recommendations

Below is a list of sleep hygiene recommendations from the American Centre for Sleep Disorders.

  • Avoid all caffeinated products (tea, coffee, chocolate) especially in the evening or late afternoon.
  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine.
  • Reduce as much noise as possible when going to bed.
  • Ensure there is adequate ventilation and warmth in the bedroom.
  • Ensure there are comfortable pillows and a good mattress (experiment if necessary).
  • Avoid going to bed too full or too hungry (have a small snack if needed).
  • Avoid emotional dilemmas prior to bedtime. Writing a worry journal before bed can help.
  • Have a regular exercise program (but not too close to bed time).
  • Avoid too much fluid before bed.
  • Cover the clock so it does not distract and bring unwanted attention to the time.
  • Take a warm bath before bed.

Other Suggestions to support healthy sleep patterns:

  • Have a regular sleep pattern which does not change in the weekends (going to bed at the same time and sleeping till the same time each day).
  • Keep a sleep log to track sleep/wake cycles. Avoid bad habits such as eating, watching TV, or reading stimulating material in bed.
  • Participate in regular aerobic exercise which can help improve sleep quality as well as quality of life and mood in people with insomnia.
  • Consider also cognitive behavioural therapy such as yoga and tai chi which have been shown to improve patients sleep quality.
  • Lavender aromatherapy oil inhalations before bed may also assist with sleep quality.
  • Seek help if the sleep problems are linked to more serious psychological problems such as anxiety, depression and/or drug or medication dependency.
