If the thought of sleeping alone brings on the heebies jeebies, then it’s time to find a solution. A lot of people, regardless of gender and age go through this, and there are ways to tackle this struggle. If not addressed, the problem can lead to mental and social repurcussions.
Find out the cause
The reasons may vary from person-to-person, so try to find out what is it that you fear when you are sleeping alone. It can be because you’re just not in the habit of sleeping alone, you fear darkness, paranormal activities or it could be safety.
Talk it out
Once you know what the issue is, you may want to console yourself, a psychologist or a friend. Allowing yourself to believe that you can fight the fear will help you get a faster positive result.
What you can also do is try these few tricks that may help. Some people need noise, so leaving the TV on or playing your favourite music could be one thing. If it’s safety, you might want to make sure the windows and doors are shut.
Filter what you watch and read
When we watch or read about violence, horror and terrorism, we often overthink about it, and even if we don’t, we have it in our subconscious mind. People, especially struggling with sleeping alone can take a break from all of these.
