Why cant i sleep at night anymore

Sleeplessness is a problem that troubles a large number of people at certain periods of their lives. I usually get mails from readers who tell me that they can't sleep at night anymore or that they are having sleeping problems.

Sleeping problems just like any other psychological disorder happen for a reason and unless this reason is discovered you might not be able to get over your sleeplessness.

The important question you should ask yourself is why can't you sleep at night anymore while you can sleep at other times?? If the sleeping problems happen during certain times of the day and not the other times then certainly your mind is trying to achieve a certain purpose by preventing you from sleeping.

In this article i will tell you about the possible causes for your sleeplessness along with the possible cures that can help you get over this problem.

This is why you can't sleep at night (sleeplessness psychological causes)

Apart from superficial conclusions such as you drank coffee before sleeping or you ate a lot there are deeper psychological causes behind sleeplessness that might be the main reason you can't sleep at night anymore.

The best way to help yourself get over sleeping problems is to understand these reasons. Here are some of them:

  • Sleeplessness and escapement: If your mind felt that your self worth is threatened by the tasks you do in the morning then it might bring you sleeping problems in order to help you avoid these task. For example, if a person fears to test his self worth at a new job he might fail to sleep each night just because his mind wants him to escape from the test. This usually happens to people who got used to escape from their problems instead of solving them
  • Sleeplessness and self deception: In the Solid Self confidence program i said that Sometimes the mind uses insomnia to play a neat trick in order to help you feel good about yourself. If you couldn't succeed in reaching your goals or if your mind was certain that you won't reach them it might bring you sleeping problems in order to give you a good excuse to use when you don't become successful. "If i could just sleep at night i would have certainly been the first" is a perfect excuse that your mind wants you to use in order to help you deceive yourself and protect your Ego
  • Sleeplessness and other people: One of the causes of sleeplessness is your unconscious mind's desire to affect other people. If for example a guy had a very tough father who always criticizes him to work hard then he might fail to sleep at night just because his mind wants him to bother his father by not waking up early
  • Sleeplessness problems and accepting reality: Sometimes we fail to sleep at night because we can't accept a certain reality and that's why we keep thinking about it all night. I mentioned that cause the last because its really easy to figure out whether you can't sleep at night because you are thinking about a certain issue or not

Of course those aren't the only causes for sleeplessness but i am certain that understanding those few examples will help you understand how deep can a sleeping problem be.

Helping yourself sleep at night

If you can't sleep at night anymore then instead of looking for superficial conclusions or taking medications you should focus on understanding the real causes behind your sleeping problem so that you can cure it.

Lets suppose that you discovered that you can't sleep properly at night because you are afraid to test your self worth at work, in such a case the best cure for your sleeplessness would be developing courage and learning how to face life problems instead of trying to count from 1 to 1000!!

The only way to help yourself sleep well is to understand this root cause and deal with it. Psychological problems aren't a bad things but they are usually opportunities that can help you understand yourself more.

Deal with that root cause and your sleeping problems will end.
