Why Exploring Rational And Irrational Phobias That Trigger Sleeplessness Is Crucial

Sleeplessness could be the result of a plethora of side effects, traumas, rational and irrational fears.

The most common issues consist of sleep paralysis and recurring nightmares which induce a fear of sleep. This is considered extremely rational as sleep paralysis can be caused by severe trauma, mental illnesses, etc. The other main cause of sleeplessness which most of us suffer from is a high intake of caffeine which inevitably leads to caffeine addiction, over-exposure to screens, and other electronic devices for various reasons.

This could be deemed as irrational as it is self-induced and could be due to poor time management, amongst other things. Some other uncommon reasons include an inexplicable fear of death, digestive issues, inability to stick to a routine, and hyper-vigilance of the brain.

For example - Dwelling on a certain issue or incident that is bothering you such as a conflict with a loved one, can give rise to hyperactivity of the brain and in turn cause insomnia.

Have you ever been unable to sleep after a fight at your workplace or some conflict at home? This could be because holding onto a lot of anger, hatred and jealousy can also cause loss of sleep as it is proven that your mind needs to be at rest in order to fall asleep.

It is also proven that an overload of stress can exert intense amounts of pressure on the brain, causing it to hallucinate apparitions and an inability to move or react. So, the ominous presence you feel at night could actually be your brain’s way of telling you to get some sleep.

Insomnia, on the other hand, can be a lingering condition and long-lasting in some cases. Short-term insomnia is triggered by certain stressors such as a new job or exams. For example - the bouts of sleeplessness you face the week before an exam or before a big interview. It is known as “adjustment insomnia” and typically goes away when the stressor deteriorates.

The kind of insomnia that lingers is typically due to a change in environment and generally disappears in a week after adapting. To name a quick example - shifting houses or sleeping in a different bed can cause uneasiness and lack of sleep.

When insomnia is long-term, such as over a month, it can prove to cause fatal health complications. It is also associated with physical and mental health. This kind of insomnia requires professional help as it can take a toll on your health when prolonged.
