Insomnia can be energy sapping and stressful

Do you have trouble falling asleep at night? Do you find yourself going to bed much earlier because you know that you are not going to fall asleep immediately, hoping to make up for the time you will miss sleeping?

Do you find that you can fall asleep, but keep waking up throughout the night only to find falling back to sleep a chore, that is if you can fall back to sleep!

If you are experiencing any or all of the above, then you most likely have a case of insomnia.

Insomnia can best be described as interrupted sleep pattern which denies the individual full, complete and refreshing sleep/rest.

Insomnia can happen for a variety of reasons; consuming caffeine too late in the day/night, eating junk food (processed sugars/starches) or heavy/spicy foods too close to bedtime, taking naps throughout the day, getting hooked on sleeping pills and then going off of them, watching too much TV, or reading throughout the day on your bed, and perhaps the most likely culprit is being incredibly stressed out to the point of intense worrying and possessing anxiety.

Do you have any of these things going on in your life? If so, it is time to change things up and get some good night sleep!

The best way to get a good night’s sleep is to relax… really!

After all, isn’t that what sleeping is all about? You see, sleep is a responsive activity that should be natural. One should not get anxious each time they go to sleep because they worry that they will not be able to fall asleep.

This is a full proof way for not falling asleep! So, how does one relax and get into a state of falling asleep? Well, here are a few suggestions that might help you get that sleep you crave.

First, do not go to bed unless you are tired.

Going to bed early and trying to force it will only frustrate you and keep you awake. It is highly recommended to do something relaxing before going to bed such as watching TV (in another room other than your bedroom), reading a book or listening to soft, relaxing music.

Avoid physical activity before bed as it releases endorphins which actually give you more energy!

Avoid taking powernaps or any naps throughout the day to try and make up for lost sleep. The idea is to be tired for real sleeping when it is time to go to bed! With that said, it is also a good idea to not eat anything heavy later in the evening, especially anything with sugar or caffeine which will give you an energy hit!

I don’t recommend sleep aids, especially pharmaceutical drugs for sleeping as sleep should come and be natural.

However, if you just can’t relax and sleep, perhaps try taking small doses of herbs such as chamomile, valerian or melatonin. These natural supplements have been proven to be effective in creating relaxation. Always consult with a professional first.

Self-hypnosis, hypnosis under a trained therapist and meditation are excellent alternative methods that cure sleeping problems and insomnia.

They have the ability to greatly reduce stress and anxiety which maybe the source of your insomnia.

When all else fails try counting sheep… or something else. It really does work. You see, counting is “boring“. You are more likely to fall asleep when you are bored, or at least boring your active mind. This shuts down and allows your “sleepy mind” (unconscious) to take over.

So, what do you have to lose? One sheep… two sheep… three…
