Insomnia – Beat it with Sleep
What is insomnia?
It is a condition where a person is unable to sleep. This has other indirect manifestations such as decreased energy levels, reduced concentrations, irritability and being susceptible to other infections. For those who suffer from this, be certain that there is a way out of it. Insomnia is a condition which even medical specialists don’t have much knowledge about. As a result they provide the patient with temporary symptomatic treatment. Also, repeated consultation helps them make extra dollars from these patients. Instead, if they were to study the relationships between the lifestyles and the manifest conditions in these patients, they’d have come up with the conclusion that some form of stress is the key factor in Insomnia. What matters is how the stress is handled by the respective person and whether or not his sleep is affected. Beating insomnia is easy – just disrupt the cycle that is preventing you from having a comfortable sleep. Being able to regulate your stress levels also works wonders.
Few tips, which I have also used and been successful in sleeping, are:
The first and foremost is the ever popular, “counting sheep.” It may sound hilarious but believe me, it works. Its very simple, chose a number close to hundred and begin counting backwards till one. The advantage is that there’s a finishing point and as soon as you reach the finishing point, sleep is achieved, rather than counting till oblivion and falling asleep due to boredom. Take a deep breath after every count. It may not seem to work initially, but soon it will work wonders. If you forget the number in between, just start from the closest number to hundred and reach one. It clears your mind and gives a positive focal point for your efforts. Breaking the cycle by jiggling is also an effective measure. When in bed, gently shake your leg or arm and listen to your music very softly, trying to give a beat. The strain to listen to music along with the jiggling will create a unique sleep cycle and you’ll be sleeping soon. But this method is not compatible with a partner. But it sure is a small price for a comfortable sleep. An ideal condition for sleep would be to have a dark and peaceful environment, where the person can feel relaxed and safe. But presence of outside factors like noise and bright lights can disrupt your sleep. Controlling your self will make you confident enough to adapt to any other environmental changes. The next tip is the toughest one. It’s been found out that sleep is more hampered when a person’s body is overheated. I personally have felt it. Earlier I used to wear socks to my bed and lie awake all night until I noticed that this way my feet were warmer. Similarly, use of electric blankets is also not advised. Bottom line is that your chances of sleeping peacefully are higher when you are feeling cool. These coupled with my 5 minute – 9-step technique are surely going to draw sleep. Over the past 27 odd years I’ve tried them and I sincerely wish that once you try them too, and see them work, you will believe the reliability of my words. Isn’t it time to stop the routine trips to the doctor just to fill his pockets and empty your own, for a treatment, which is not even complete? Wouldn’t you rather prefer taking tips from someone who has spent similar nights, trying methods, and then finally, achieving what he so long dreamt of.
