While most of us do suffer from an occasional sleepless night, for some this lack of quality sleep is routine. Chronic lack of sleep can result in many daily challenges both to our health and just our ability to function fully. We become easily agitated, unable to focus, and basically inefficient in our responsibilities, not to mention the direct negative effect to our well being.
Some of the hazards associated with chronic sleep deprivation include:
Higher levels of anxiety
Higher levels of depression
Impaired thinking and memory
Higher risk of hypertension and heart disease
Disruption of our natural time clock weakening our stress and immunity responses
Increased risk of diabetes possibly resulting from an increase in unhealthy food cravings
Increased risk of breast cancer
Higher risk of injury
According to sleep experts, nearly 60 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders. Some have trouble falling asleep, some are unable to sleep through the night, no quality sleep. With all of this sleeplessness, what can be done without resorting to dangerous and often habit forming drugs? Changing your routine and developing healthy habits would be a great start. Here are some suggestions from the National Sleep Foundation.
1. Stick to a regular schedule of going to bed and getting up. This will help your body develop its natural Circadian rhythm or internal clock.
2. Develop a relaxing bedtime ritual. Reduce exposure to bright lights and electronic screens. Take a warm bath, a soothing cup of tea, anything that calms you.
3. Avoid naps
4. Exercise daily. Even a brisk 20 minute walk can work wonders. Sunlight also helps regulate the body’s Circadian rhythm.
5. Evaluate your sleeping environment. It should be comfortable, dark and cool, free from noise. Consider ear plugs if your partner snores or if there are other noises that cant be silenced.
6. Avoid alcohol, cigarettes and heavy meals in the evening. If you feel hungry just limit yourself to a light snack before bedtime.
7. If you are unable to fall asleep, go to another room and do something until you feel tired.
