Sleep disorders are a common phenomenon.

In a pronounced form, they can lead to incapacity for work.

A patient explains what helps.

Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep?

Sleep disorders can vary in severity.

If there is no underlying physical illness, doctors speak of non-organic insomnia.

Those affected suffer from difficulties falling asleep and sleeping through the night, waking up early in the morning and/or reduced sleep quality, which results in daytime tiredness, according to the Thieme specialist portal.

But physical causes can also be behind sleep problems.

These include nocturnal breathing disorders or thyroid disorders

.

As the neurologists and psychiatrists continue to report online, all diseases that are associated with pain can also significantly disrupt sleep.

"Everyone is allowed to sleep badly, sometimes for a few weeks or months," quotes Zeit Online Ingo Fietz, specialist in internal medicine and head of the interdisciplinary sleep medicine center at the Berlin Charité.

"But if you have trouble sleeping most of the night, i.e. three to four times a week, you shouldn't wait and seek help in good time," advises the expert.

Otherwise, the disturbances could become permanent.

Hans-Günter Weeß, head of the German Society for Sleep Research and Sleep Medicine, explains in the Zeit interview: "The majority of sleep disorders are in fact a

relaxation

disorder ." Excessive physical and mental tension can be solved with rituals and regulated processes in the evening , Weeß is further quoted.

What helps against falling asleep?

A victim reports

Andreas Müller, whose surname was changed by the Zeit editors, has always had trouble falling asleep.

The only thing that really helped him was a doctor's tip: introduce a regular daily routine.

"I only managed to do this with the help of a psychologist who gave me specific support," said the 28-year-old in the Zeit interview.

Müller always gets up at the same time and has established a relaxed evening routine.

This begins with a meditation, after which he no longer picks up his smartphone.

Also part of his ritual

: brushing his teeth right before going to bed, and when he gets to bed, Müller reads a few pages and listens to a podcast that helps him fall asleep.
