I often wake up during the night and find it difficult to get back to sleep - any suggestions
The main thing to do is to break the pattern of not being able to go to sleep again. What I suggest is to get out of bed, and then commence the normal routine you use to go to sleep at night. By this I mean, you may need to sit in front of the TV for ten minutes, or read for ten minutes, and/or to have a glass of warm milk. Then you go to bed and either just go to your PP telling yourself that you're going to have a good, sound sleep and wake up at ...... 7am (for example), or, you may need to play the tape or CD PP12 - Making Sleep Easy and Useful.
