Here the bio-psychosocial model is powerful for understanding how to restore healthy sleep.
Biological answers for sleep can include: exercise, deep breathing, and meditation techniques. I have a three-step meditation method that takes three minutes to learn and 30 seconds to start working. More than half the people using this say their sleep is at least 10% better because of this alone.
Psychological answers for sleep can include basic stress management skills during the day to help reduce nervous tension. I go over the use of pet therapy, plant therapy, aromatherapy, and other alternative health strategies.
Social answers for sleep can include communication skills so that people feel connected to their friends. A big cause of insomnia is people feeling lonely and disconnected from their friends and community.
If insomnia persists even with all these skills, a sleep medication can be tried. I go over the ``over-the-counter medications`` and supplements that are available. If those fail, then I can prescribe traditional sleep medication.
