Why Do People Have Trouble Sleeping?

If you cannot sleep, that might mean you cannot fall asleep. However, it can also indicate you struggle to stay asleep.

There are various contributing factors to trouble with sleep. Sleeping habits, lifestyle choices, medical conditions, and stress can all play a role. 

  • Alcohol. 
    Drinking alcohol at night means waking up mid-sleep to use the bathroom. That can lower your sleep quality.
  • Poor sleeping habits.
    Staying up too late and having an irregular sleep routine could play a part in poor sleep. Also, napping later in the day could result in trouble sleeping. 
Don`t share your bed with pets

  • Sharing your bed.
    Sharing your bed, whether a four-legged friend or a human—substantially lessens sleep quality, especially if your partner hogs the covers, crowds you, snores, or makes you uncomfortable.

    You and your partner might have preferred sleeping conditions (like noise, light, and temperature). 
  • Anxiety.
    Anxiety and sleep are closely related. If you have trouble sleeping, your concern may grow. Also, if you have high stress, you may experience difficulty sleeping.
  • Poor sleeping environment.
    Most sleep experts suggest keeping your bedroom at 60-67 degrees Fahrenheit at night.

    However, most people prefer to cut energy expenses by turning the thermostat down to the freezing zone and turning the AC off in the summer. 

How to Use 5 Minute Meditation for Sleeping Better.

Meditate for a good sleep

Here are some steps you can do to use meditation for better sleeping:

  1. With your eyes closed, inhale for a count of four and exhale for a count of five.
  2. Inhale for a count of four and exhale for a count of six. 
  3. Do that again. However, exhale for a count of seven and then for eight. If the extended exhalation makes you somewhat breathless at any time, you can quickly return to the previous count.
  4. Repeat the longest-exhalation breathing several times.
  5. Drop the long exhalation and breathe naturally. Then, inhale and exhale. Focus on your breathing rhythm, following the air as it enters and leaves your body. You may even note inhaling and exhaling with every action.
  6. If your mind wanders, guide it gently back to your breathing.
