Stress provokes insomnia

Under constant stress, the body quickly becomes exhausted. Russian shelling, nightly air raid alert, stress, tragic news, tension, panic attacks, and a sense of helplessness lead to sleep disturbances.

It's important to be able to abstract yourself from the situation and find time to rest regularly. The Leicester Mercury has revealed how to fall asleep quickly in a matter of minutes.

Brainwave training combines CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) with some principles of traditional Chinese medicine and kinesiology.

Sleep expert Dr. Daisy Mae described the technique in detail, "You need to press or lightly tap on three areas of the face (around the eyes, under the nose and under the lips), then on the collarbones and armpit, and finally on the crown of the head 7-9 times. At the same time, you should talk out loud about the problems that bother you and evaluate their negative impact on a scale from 1 to 10."

Experts say that this will help get rid of anxiety that keeps you awake. The technique relaxes the body and brain.

While the effect of simply tapping may seem a bit far-fetched, there is scientific evidence to support the method's effectiveness.

"You may be very skeptical that tapping can help you fall asleep, but in fact, in 2013, the journal Psychology published a review of medical evidence on a group of emotional freedom techniques (EFT) that included these very techniques," Mae emphasized.

The review included 23 randomized controlled trials and 17 individualized studies. The authors stated that EFT techniques are effective in treating anxiety, depression, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain. EFT has been shown to change brainwave patterns and reduce cortisol levels.
