Sleepless Nights

Hello There! Welcome to yet another interesting and informative post of Peace of Mind.

In this post, we’ll be discussing about Insomnia.

Insomnia occurs when a person faces trouble sleeping at night.

After a hard day’s work, most people look out for night to refresh their body physically and mentally. Most people experience difficulty in sleeping at some age in their lives.

Signs of sleeping difficulty may include an inability to focus during the day, frequent headaches, irritability, daytime fatigue, waking up too early, waking up throughout the night, or taking several hours to fall asleep.

Following are some methods which you can use to curb the difficulty in sleeping :

Start by trying to take your mind off of any racing thoughts. Picture a relaxing scene involving sleep and build that scene in your mind.

If that doesn’t work and you’re still awake, try getting up for a short time, drink some water, and do something relaxing that might make you feel drowsy – like reading a book without pictures, or playing repetitive games.

Then keep the lights low, and go back to sleep afters 30 minutes or so.

Another way to promote sleep is avoiding the technology – like phones, computers or T.V. Bright screens can trigger your brain into thinking that it’s time to wake up.

Anything that stimulates your brain – from a text conversation to a video game – also can kick body into wake-up mode.

If you still encounter any trouble falling sleep, it’s best to train your body to wind down and relax with a pre-sleep routine each night. Doctors termed this process as “good sleep hygiene.” Check out the sleep hygiene process here.
