Insomnia and Sleep Difficulties


Many people experience difficulties with sleep at various times in their lives.  Sometimes falling asleep seems so difficult, frequent waking and even repeatedly waking up early can leave us feeling exhausted during the day.  Sleep is where our body rests and repairs and getting good quality sleep is vital to our health and well-being.  There are many things we can do to aid peaceful sleep:

  • Increase the amount of natural light during the day
  • Reduce time we spend on screens – laptops and phones etc blue light exposure can affect our sleep
  • Don’t consume caffeinated drinks late in the day and before sleep
  • Optimise your sleep environment – temperature, noise, light levels
  • Don’t eat to late in the evening or close to your bedtime
  • There are many Apps available that you could try

Acupuncture has demonstrated its effects at helping to improve sleep and promote health and wellbeing.
