What a pity that it is so common to come across faces livid from fatigue on the subway, with children with haggard eyes in schools or to see a family member or friend in a constant state of exhaustion. We are tired of hearing messages aimed at emphasizing how important rest is. That's right, the restorative function of sleep is amply demonstrated. It is vital. Don't take the test, but it's possible to die of sleep.


For a few decades, sleep disorders and, therefore, disorders associated with it, have not ceased to increase. They affect too high a percentage of the population, giving rise to medical and psychological problems and seriously interfering with the daily activities of affected individuals. That is why the intervention must be personalized to the maximum, and the study of each case will require the management of organic, psychological or behavioral variables. Therefore, it will be necessary to seek answers to the questions related to how much, how, where and what of sleep and the act of sleeping.

The most widespread measure to tackle this problem immediately is pharmacology. The massive intake of tranquilizers and sleep aids is generating habits that are often useless and unnecessary, even adding one more problem: addiction. Although on numerous occasions, this treatment is essential at the beginning, we will present alternative methods developed underpsychological approaches that may be effective by themselves, in some cases, and as a complement to pharmacological treatment, in those most affected.


There are numerous relaxation techniques waiting to be tapped. Go to a specialist who will guide you and train you in their practice. Its function of reducing both physical and mental physiological activity will cooperate in making sleep make its stellar appearance every night. Relaxation will become your great ally and you will benefit from its virtues in other areas of life. Get all its juice out of it.

Especially indicated for problems of insomnia, sleepwalking or night terrors.

Powerful Mind

When difficulties arise because the subject expresses negative thoughts towards sleep (if I fall asleep, I'm going to die) or thoughts that hinder its presence (worries, obsessively remembering pending tasks), we question, again, the presence of a professional who initiates you in the excellence of cognitive restructuring, the stopping of thoughts, or paradoxical intention. These are very effective techniques for those who find it more than difficult to fall asleep and for that nocturnal tribe that shares insomnia.

Set your life

Although we cannot consider it a treatment in itself, its participation in any therapy aimed at alleviating sleep disorders is evident. Undoubtedly, the set will be more effective if the patient incorporates habits and attitudes that combine with theact of sleeping (sleep hygiene).

We consider it significant that care be taken to take care of the context surrounding the act of sleeping. Stimulus control (bed, bedroom, bedtime) becomes the target of our intervention.

Unfortunately, these disorders affect people of all ages and both sexes. Although, middle-aged women and older people of both sexes suffer more frequently. Practice restful and invigorating sleep as a way of life. It is a fundamental part of your he alth and must be treated as it deserves. Also, notice the signs of poor sleep of those around you to act as soon as possible. Also, don't miss out on the adventure of dreaming even though you don't remember when you wake up. It is better not to remember than not to dream.
