sleep_problemsWhen restorative and restful sleep has become a distant dream for you, it is important to get a physical assessment to rule out any underlying medical conditions. Sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy are all medical conditions that are important to address with your physician. However, even with medical issues there are several lifestyle strategies you can learn to help support a good nights sleep.

Stress, adjusting to changes in your life, managing emotional burdens, and the psychological effects of physical challenges such as fibromyalgia, anxiety, or depression all can take a toll on your ability to sleep well.

If you are reading this, I probably don’t have to tell you the multiple costs of poor sleep: fatigue, irritability, poor concentration, frequent mistakes, etc. All of these symptoms begin to occur with just one night of poor sleep. Addressing your sleep is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your loved ones.

I can help you evaluate the issues that are contributing to poor sleep and insomnia, work with you to create a plan, and we can begin to put your life back in balance.
