Link between insomnia and trauma

When we are chronically stressed, we spend much of our time in sympathetic (fight or flight) or dorsal vagal (freeze or shutdown) activation.

These are both states that serve us in the short term but are not intended as long-term ways of being. To fall asleep, we need to discharge this activation.
Learn more about the link between insomnia and trauma and explore how this relates to you, with our free training.
