Understanding Main Symptoms Of Insomnia and Sleep Disorders

 Hasta Mudras for Insomnia and Sleep Disorder

Most of the times I WISH my sleep habits to become like a switch. Once I put it off, I transit to a peaceful sleep. immediately! Switch it on...fully awake. Out of my bed.

THE REALITY being quite opposite.

I go to my bed with great intentions...do my affirmations... gratitude...reiki healing...then blank! Showers of thoughts! Seeping of negativities from the day. irritation. deep breathing. backward counting sheep.

Some more time... don't know when??


This is somehow I sleep. My personal sleep behaviour!

Straight 6 to 7 hours sleep... then I wake up fresh!

This is my daily sleep struggles.

But this is not insomnia or a sleep disorder.

We often face problems in falling asleep when we are not tired enough, are highly stressed or working on an important project or maybe the room temperature is too high to sleep. It might happen on a daily basis, however after some struggles, if you are able to fall asleep for 6 continuous hours, then THIS IS NOT INSOMNIA!

Insomnia is quite different from our daily sleep struggles.

Insomnia and sleep disorders can manifest in various ways, here are the most prominent symptoms

Persistent trouble initiating sleep, even when tired.

Daytime Fatigue
