Many suffered from it… a way to get rid of “Covid-19” anxiety

In the time of Covid-19, sleep has become too scarce for many due to the insomnia caused by the disease.

At least one in 10 Britons suffers from chronic insomnia, which is defined as difficulty falling asleep most nights over a four-week period, says Guy Leschner, a British consultant neurologist.

Lichzner added, according to what was reported by the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, that whether this was a result of the long-term symptoms of “Covid-19”, which were frequently reported, or as a result of increased stress, the epidemic had left a significant impact on the world of sleep.

A study published in the Journal of Sleep Medicine in 2021 stated that 75 percent of “Covid-19” patients suffered from sleep problems.

Sleep is as vital to our mental and physical health as water and food, and with less sleep, we will be unable to function and think properly.

Sleep disturbance does not leave visible wounds, but it leaves significant psychological scars, and research shows that persistent sleep deprivation is linked to serious and long-term effects on human health, including high blood pressure, obesity and heart problems.

In this regard, the British neurologist says that there are simple steps that can help a person get rid of insomnia and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Lichzner observed that many patients appear in a state of hypervigilance, a psychological state caused by a psychological problem that keeps the senses alert in the face of danger he believes is imminent.

He pointed out that this condition accompanies those who wake up in the middle of the night, which would destroy attempts to sleep, suggesting that the matter is due to the trauma caused by the disease in its first year, and at that time the disease was unknown, so it seemed dangerous to the person.

The British doctor reassured people, stressing that sleep is an acquired habit, which means that it is possible to learn it even after the great anxiety caused by the disease.

It calls for taking everything that relaxes mental health so that we can sleep, because they are two things that are linked.

Lichziner rejects sleeping pills, stressing that they cause more problems (you may sleep for an additional 30 minutes only), and finds that too little during the day leads to disturbing sleep at night.

It is advised to leave the room within 15 minutes if the person is unable to sleep.
