Is getting up from bed in the morning a real effort? In this case, you may have clinomania, a condition also called Dysania, which causes people to stay in bed all day.
This is not the normal morning reluctance to get up, it is a disorder that has nothing to do with laziness, being drowsy, and even with fatigue syndrome chronic. For those suffering from clinomania, blankets become a real refuge from reality, a way to escape responsibility, to stay away from the outside world.
Clinomania, which is not medically recognized, can, therefore, be defined as a chronic inability to get out of bed. But let's find out more.
Clinomania, therefore, forces us to stay in bed, not because we need to sleep more, but because the blankets become a kind of womb, in which we feel safe and protected.
A non-pathological form of clinomania can be found in up to 70% of people who have suffered during their life as a result of stressful situations, without it becoming chronic.
However, if the desire not to get out of bed is so strong that it interferes with the normal course of daily life, it must be recognized that this is a problem to be resolved.
Clinomania can arise from a state of high anxiety and the causes can be different: it can appear if you suffer from postpartum depression, a condition which often regenerates new mothers and which must be followed by a specialist.
Other causes are psychological: low self-esteem, fear of social relationships, fear of failure. Often, therefore, clinomania can be a symptom of depression, associated with phobias and hypochondria. The people most exposed to clinomania are therefore those who suffer from depression and those who tend to be anxious.
It is important to understand the causes that triggered clinomania to resolve the problem. It is that could have non-positive consequences for our psychophysical well-being.
Always being in bed means not being exposed to the sun, which is fundamental to regulating the circadian rhythm of sleep. Besides, artificial lights and electronic devices increase the risk of anxiety, sleep disturbances, and depression.
Staying closed at all times, taking refuge especially in the virtual world, can, therefore, lead to problems related to our social and relational life.
If you have an early stage of clinomania, then you do not need to go to a psychotherapist or any counsellor you can get rid of this problem on your own in the beginning.
Or your family and friends will help you, you always have to be positive.
If clinomania becomes chronic, it is essential to turn to a professional to begin a psychotherapy journey, to establish the best cure. In the case of depression, the specialist can also resort to the help of medication. If, on the other hand, you suffer from a non-pathological form, linked to particularly stressful periods, then there are strategies to put in place: first, to change your sleeping habits. It is therefore essential to regulate the amount of sleep: the ideal would be 6 to 9 hours per night.
Relaxation is also important: treat yourself to a warm bath before going to bed, drink a relaxing herbal tea, or do light yoga exercises.
To help get a good rest and cool off in the morning, don't use a computer, tablet, or Smartphone in bed and, if you can, don't keep them in the bedroom. Healthy sexual activity also helps you rest well.
Wanting to stay late or waking up in a bad mood when the alarm rings because we would like to be in bed all day without doing anything does not automatically mean that we suffer from clinomania.
It is normal for our rhythm of life to generate the desire to take a day off and to wander in bed to recharge the batteries. The problem comes when it becomes an obsession and affects your professional, social, or family life. So when should you worry?
When our leisure and free time is limited to staying in bed. We don't go out, we don't meet anyone. We just spend all our time in bed, without getting up except to go to the bathroom.
When we start to be obsessed with everything about the bed: sheets, pillows, cushions... and we can't get out of our head the desire to stay in bed. When we get sad with sunny days or with family and happy meetings when it rains, snows or it is very cold.
This change of mood is due to because weather forces us to get out of bed and that bad weather is a perfect excuse to spend several days indoors, without having to communicate with someone to explain to him why we want to lie down all the time.
Like any anxiety disorder, clinomania often requires psychological treatment to alleviate symptoms. In the most severe cases, medication prescribed by a doctor will also be necessary.
The main objective of mental health specialists is to allow patients suffering from this problem to return to their former life, that is to say, to be able to work, study, attend meetings or lead a normal life outside bed.
These professionals further point out that lifestyle change can also help reduce this obsession. Therefore, forcing patients out of their homes to exercise is also a way to change that person's behaviour and gradually reduce their obsession.
