INSOMNIA

Insomnia

Insomnia is something that can happen as we all get older; there are lots of reasons why insomnia could develop and everyone’s circumstances are different. Key causes for insomnia can include: going through menopause for women, other hormonal changes, changes in brain activity, changes in natural sleep patterns (time of the year- days getting longer/shorter), medications, social changes, anxiety and depression.

If you’re suffering with insomnia, regardless of age, it is recommended that you seek some help; this can be by going to your local GP or referring yourself to mental health services which will be happy to help.
