Do you find yourself rolling around, watching the clock while you try to fall sleep at night? Perhaps you are worrying about an upcoming exam, or an unfinished project that is approaching its deadline.
Most scientists agree that sleep is important for restoring your physical and mental health, and a lack of sleep can cause mood disturbances, poor memory, and impaired judgement and reaction time.
If you are having trouble sleeping, it is important to consult your GP in the first instance to rule out any medical conditions. If seeing a psychologist would be beneficial, your GP would be able to help you with a referral – or, book a free emotional health check up.
