Stress and Insomnia

Stress and insomnia are frequently experienced by people coping with a stressful physical or psychological environment. Too much pressure on the nervous system can lead to an imbalance which can physically affect the entire body. High blood pressure, ulcers, muscle tension and possibly cancer can be attributed to stress. Insomnia can result from stress, but it can also be a sign of organic or psychological problems.

Alleviating the tension in the muscle groups and relieving pressure on the nervous system will help relax the body so the mind can better cope with a stressful environment.

Symptoms:

  • Having difficulty concentrating
  • Taking more than a ½ hour to fall asleep
  • Having trouble falling back asleep after waking up in the middle of the night
  • Waking up early and unable to go back to sleep
  • Mood swings and sensitivities
  • Feeling depressed or like you want to cry
  • Lost interest in activities you used to enjoy
  • Being more impatient than usual
  • Feeling sad or tense without knowing why
