Simple yoga techniques

to help insomnia...



Insomnia means you regularly have problems sleeping. It usually gets better by changing your sleeping habits.

You have insomnia if you regularly:

  • find it hard to go to sleep
  • wake up several times during the night
  • lie awake at night
  • wake up early and cannot go back to sleep
  • still feel tired after waking up
  • find it hard to nap during the day even though you're tired
  • feel tired and irritable during the day
  • find it difficult to concentrate during the day because you're tired

If you have insomnia for a short time (less than 3 months) it’s called short-term insomnia. Insomnia that lasts 3 months or longer is called long-term insomnia.


Do you have a sleep problem?

Most people experience problems with sleep in their life. In fact, it's thought that a third of Brits will have episodes of insomnia at some point. 

The causes can include physical conditions, psychological conditions (such as depression or anxiety) or a combination of both.

This short test from Sleepio will give you a 'sleep score' plus practical tips and advice for improving your sleep.


How much sleep you need

On average:

  • adults need 7 to 9 hours

You probably do not get enough sleep if you're constantly tired during the day.
