How can I help my stress related insomnia?

by Mary

Stress in my relationship has caused me to have sleeping problems for just over 1 week now. I have a very hard time falling asleep, and usually wake up wide awake after 2 hours. I have been trying to deal with the stress in the relationship during the day. It does not help that I am sleep deprived. What is a way I can fall asleep and stay asleep all night? I know if I go to the doctor they will just tell me to remove the stress, it is not that easy.

Answer from Tracy

I know the feeling and I agree sleeping pills often leave you with a sort of hang over feeling (if they work at all that is).

There are a few things you can do to try and endure that you have better sleep. It is important that you put yourself first , so taking some time to relax and ensure you get better sleep is something everyone around you should understand and support you.
