  • Getting up early can remove the problem of Insomnia
    By Health Blog on April 16, 2010 | No Comments  Comments

    If you’ve been in bed all night dealing with insomnia, the last thing in the world you want to do is to get out of bed earlier than you have to. Those last few moments under the comfort of your blankets is a treasure that you don’t want to give up. However, giving up a few moments of sleep in the morning could mean a much longer sleep the next night.

    Our bodies have internal clocks that we feed off of. They tell us when we are tired and if we listen to them, we’ll probably find ourselves in bed at approximately the same time each night. Sometimes though they may be a bit off and instead of falling quickly to sleep, we feel the clutches of insomnia taking over.

    One way to combat this in a natural way is to simply adjust the amount of time that you are sleeping. By getting up earlier, you are forcing your body’s internal clock to change and if you are suffering from insomnia, this can be a natural cure that works.

    Each minute that we sleep plays a role in how rested we feel. If we lose an hour of sleep, we might have a difficult day, feeling sluggish and tired and counting the hours until we can get home and back to bed. Quite often we do get to bed a bit earlier and instead of falling into a deep sleep as we anticipated we would, we instead toss and turn unable to get any rest. The morning comes and we feel exhausted, spending every last second we can in bed before the alarm sounds the beginning of our day. It’s a pattern that can be repeated night after night. It doesn’t need to be though.

    Instead of turning to sleeping pills to fight insomnia you can try a much more natural approach. Varying the amount of sleep you get by getting out of bed earlier can make a significant difference.

    Even a scant fifteen minutes each morning can have an effect. It’s not easy though to climb out of bed when you are tired, but it’s worth a try if you aren’t getting the seven or eight hours of sleep that you feel you should be.

    What to do with that time in the morning is up to you. You can take a longer shower, work a bit or engage in some exercise. One thing that some people enjoy is preparing breakfast for a partner or a family.

    By the end of the day you’ll really feel a change in your body from those lost moments of sleep. When your regular bedtime comes, you’ll feel prepared and tired enough that sleep will come much easier. You might even wake less times during the night. It’s important to keep this routine up for several mornings at the very least. Your body will adjust to this new sleep time and before long your insomnia will be a thing of the distant past.

  • Bed may one of the reasons for Insomnia
    By Health Blog on April 13, 2010 | No Comments  Comments

    Retiring to bed each night is one of the best parts of the day. After dealing with other people for hours and exerting not only our bodies but our minds, finding solace beneath the sheets offers comfort. When that solace doesn’t come and we’re instead fighting against insomnia, our bed becomes a much less comfortable environment.

    There are many natural approaches to curing insomnia. Some involve exercise, others taking an herbal remedy or drinking a warm cup of specially brewed herbal tea. Another less obvious remedy might be in our own beds.

    Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable bed can lead to insomnia. Beds wear out and if yours is getting old it might not be providing the support that you need. Naturally we become used to the feeling of our beds and we don’t always recognize if it’s losing firmness.

    It’s important to also note the condition of the pillows that you are using. If they have seen better days, they might be contributing to your inability to sleep. Your head and neck might not be in a comfortable position and as you toss and turn to find a spot to drift of in, you are wasting moments that are better used sleeping.

    If you do find that you are waking up feeling tired, examine your bed. Check to see if it’s sagging and if any of the springs are poking through. Also if your pillows aren’t plump it might be wise to invest in one or two new ones.

    Simple steps like this are a great way to get a better night’s sleep. We all want to do things in as natural a way as possible including treating insomnia. If you are able to do that simply by updating your bed, you’ve invested in years of better sleep.
