A healthy person takes 6-8 hours of sleep every day. If you’re loaded with work and don’t have enough time to sleep, even then, you should sleep for at least 5-6 hours to let your body cope up with exhaustion.
Does PTSD cause insomnia?
People with PTSD are often sleep-deprived, which in some cases, also results in insomnia. As the mind struggles to get over worrisome thoughts, sleeping gets extremely tough for people with PTSD.
How can I restore my sleep?
Meditation can help a person restore their sleep. When you meditate, you provide your mind the strength to fight worrisome thoughts. As a result, when you go to bed, you don’t have any bad memories to hover around in your mind, and you sleep with ease. Sometimes, not doing any mechanical work or sitting idle for the entire day also causes sleeping problems. You must do some mechanical work so that your body can exhaust and you get the sleep, as soon as you fall on the bed.
