End The Insomnia for Good

Categorized: Uncategorized | 7 comments

The inability to sleep in this country is rampant.  Much of this caused by the high paced lifestyles that people force upon themselves causing a lack of sleep.  With demanding lifestyles and social media such as Youtube, Facebook and Twitter people are finding more activities to keep them awake at night.  Most people are unaware that they are sleep deprived and parents or schools did not generally teach the importance of sleep.

The cost of sleep is significant.  It leads to an increased number of accidents, decline in production, focus and awareness and obesity.  When you fail to get enough sleep you build up a sleep debt.  Sleep debt is the difference between how much sleep your body craves and how much sleep you actually give it.  You not only need 6-9 hours of sleep each night but this sleep needs to be quality sleep.  Your body needs to get to the REM stage where the restoration and rejuvenation occurs.

If you constantly feel drowsy or daytime fatigue then you’re probably sleep deprived.  If you implement the three things listed below you can not only start to repay your sleep debt but you’ll discover that you’ll fall asleep fast and remain asleep much longer.

Tip # 1 – Set up your bedroom so that it promotes sleep.  Remove all electronic devices, eliminate noise, invest in a good pillow and make sure the room is completely dark.

Tip # 2 – Go to bed at the same time each night.  Creating a ritual every time you go to bed signals to your body that its time to wind down and go to sleep.

Tip # 3 – Engage in a meditative activity prior to going to bed.  This could be a silent prayer or meditation, reading a good book or listening to a relaxing CD.  This is one of the quickest ways to help your body wind down gradually.
