I Need to get some Sleep and some Rest...Help!

Posted Sep 01 2010 12:00am
Millions of people suffer from insomnia, and even more suffer from getting a less than restful night’s sleep.  If you have difficulty in falling asleep, wake up often in the night or feel excessively groggy when you do wake up, these tips could be a great help in getting you back into a healthy sleeping pattern.

Your body has an internal clock that recognizes when it is time to sleep and when it is time to wake up.  Your “ circadian rhythm ” works best when kept on a consistent schedule.  This means that as much as possible, weekdays and weekends, it’s best to go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time.  That way your body gets into a habit for sleep, and it is no longer a problem falling asleep.

It’s also important to have no distractions in your bedroom.Having a laptop by the bed, and your blackberry always on next to the bed, and eating in the bed, and watching TV in bed can confuse you.Then when you are actually ready for rest, your mind is preset to be active while in bed, because usually you are engaged with activity.  It’s also good to stop exercising or drinking alcohol at least a half hour before going to sleep, as these will effect your metabolism and make sleeping more difficult.

Another great tip for a restful night’s sleep is going regularly to get adjusted by your chiropractor .Having your neck, shoulders, back, and hips in line will help to keep the stress off of your joints while you’re sleeping, which will mean you wake up well-rested and without pain.
