Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep? Is the amount of sleep you’re getting falling short of leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to face the day? You’re far from alone. About one-third of all adults report suffering from symptoms of insomnia, and more than 50 million people have chronic sleep disorders, according to the American Psychiatric Association.
Sleep disorders are characterized by problems with the amount, timing and quality of your sleep that come back to cause stress and impairments during your waking hours. There are many types of sleep disorders, some occurring because of medical conditions. But often insomnia can be linked to emotional or mental health conditions like stress, anxiety and depression, and in those cases treatment by a therapist at Mars & Venus Counseling Center can be immensely valuable. An understanding of the underlying issues keeping you up at night, a close examination of your sleep habits, relaxation or other techniques, and if needed, a referral to a doctor for further treatment, are all considered.
Many people boast of how little sleep they get, and so many of us resort to caffeine to make it through the day. Misuse of over-the-counter sleep remedies is all too common. Make no mistake, the consequences of sleep deprivation are serious. The amount and quality of sleep you get, and when you’re getting it, have a dramatic effect on how your brain functions. Lack of energy, fatigue, irritability, problems focusing and making decisions can all be a result of too few hours in deep, restorative sleep.
If you are not getting enough deep, restful sleep due to stress, anxiety or depression, therapy at Mars & Venus Counseling Center can help. A holistic approach that takes into consideration the many factors that affect sleep patterns can yield positive results. Please call us today to arrange an appointment.
