Insomnia can be a frustrating cycle of sleeplessness to break. For many people, insomnia leads not only to daytime fatigue, sleepiness, and irritability, but also to anxiety about sleep itself. Feeling stress about one's ability to sleep can make falling asleep even more difficult. This kind of negative thinking about sleep is common among people with insomnia, part of the cycles that can feel debilitating.
Recent research shows that mind-body practices can be one effective way to treat insomnia and some of its symptoms.
