GMoney Anchor - Welcome to GMoney Health Show, I am Neha Bajaj and as you know, we have experts in every episode so that you get the right opinion and answers to all your questions. Today in this special episode, Miss Sahar is joining us, with whom we will talk about mental health. So today, first of all, we want to talk about Insomnia. First of all, doctor, tell us what this insomnia is. What are its types, and what are its symptoms?

Dr. Seher Sheikh Gulati Insomnia is a problem in which a person cannot sleep. Or the person whose sleep breaks again and again after falling asleep. That means even the slightest sound disturbs their sleep. 60% of insomnia is due to stress, anxiety, depression, or workload.

GMoney Anchor - Good and how many types of insomnia are there?

Dr. Seher Sheikh Gulati – If you are not able to sleep for a day or a week, it could be because of the stress of your work. Exam anxiety can also lead to sleep problems. If this problem persists for more than two to three months, consult your doctor. The main types of insomnia are acute and chronic.

Acute insomnia can last from a few days to months. Sleep problems occurring at least three days a week or lasting at least a month are called chronic insomnia.

GMoney Anchor - Are women more prone to insomnia?

Dr. Seher Sheikh Gulati – Yes, it is because there are hormonal changes in women. There will be changes after pregnancy, and there are many changes in menopause too. Women are more likely to live with this sleep disorder than men. About 1 in 4 women have it, while 1 in 5 men have it. Studies show that, in general, women take longer to fall asleep than men, sleep for a shorter amount of time, and wake up feeling more tired.

GMoney Anchor - I want to know from you what the importance of a therapy is for insomnia.

Dr. Seher Sheikh Gulati – Therapy curbs the negative thoughts coming from inside the person. It can help control or relieve worries that keep you awake.

GMoney Anchor - What are the ways to improve sleep and get better sleep?

Dr. Seher Sheikh Gulati – Change your routine. This can help you get better sleep. Set a fixed time to sleep and wake up. Use the bed only for sleeping.

Set sleep limits. Lying in bed while awake can become a habit that can lead to poor sleep. If you can’t fall asleep within 20 minutes, get up and don’t go back to bed until you feel sleepy. But don’t change your wake-up time. This leaves you more tired the next night. But once your sleep gets better, your time in bed gradually increases.

Change some lifestyle habits. Change habits that cause poor sleep, such as smoking, drinking too much caffeine late in the day, and drinking too much alcohol. Lack of regular physical activity can also lead to poor sleep. You can learn tips that can help you sleep better, such as ways to relax an hour or two before bedtime.

Learn relaxation techniques. These techniques help calm your mind and body.
