Benzodiazepine addiction can be extremely challenging to recover from. There are many things that can make recovery challenging and some of them are unexpected. One of the things that some people find is they struggle with managing insomnia. In this blog, we’ll discuss some ways that you can get some sleep and kick insomnia to the curb.
Sleeping After a Benzodiazepine Addiction
There are a few different ways that you can encourage your body to sleep without taking a benzodiazepine. It’s important to remember that everyone is unique and what works for some people won’t necessarily work for others. Below are a few different strategies you can try to get some sleep. We help our clients at Avalon Malibu with life after addiction and we’d love to help you as well.
Meditating can be an excellent way to calm your body down and prepare to sleep. If you find that you’re having a hard time getting some sleep, then meditation can be a great way to focus your mind and get rid of any distracting thoughts. If you’re not a big fan of meditating, there are many other options.
Getting exercise during the day is one of the most beneficial things you can do to make sure that you get sleep at night. If you are going to be exercising, it’s important that you give yourself a time buffer between that and when you want to go to sleep.
If there are other reasons why you’re struggling to fall asleep, then therapy might be a way that you could work through them. If you struggle with bad dreams or lay awake thinking at night, then therapy could be extremely beneficial. At Avalon Malibu, we provide a variety of different therapy options and would love to speak with you about which ones could make sense of your situation and your specific goals.
