Sleeping issues have become a very common problem recently. People turn in their beds all night, stare at the ceiling, think about their lives and all of a sudden the sun rises and it’s time for work, school or university.
What are the causes of insomnia?
Insomnia is usually caused by stress, anxiety, depression, issues at work etc. When you go to bed, you think about the issues or what you need to do the following day. Your brain can’t relax because it is active all the time, so you can’t sleep.
Medical experts claim that even some drugs and meds can cause insomnia. Those are: pain meds, antihistamines, blood pressure meds, heart meds, etc. They can all make you drowsy at first, but then cause stomach problems, so you have to go to the bathroom a lot and disturb your sleep even more. We get out of bed tired and without energy, when we were actually supposed to sleep and recharge our batteries.
How much sleep do we need?
Sleeping is extremely important for our health, for the body, mind, and each organ. By sleeping more, we will be more productive and we will finish our everyday activities without problems. Our bodies need at least 8 hours of sleep. That is the time when it refuels itself completely and recharges the whole organism. People think that drinking coffee first thing in the morning will help them pass their work day more easily, but they’re wrong. When the effects are gone, you will feel even worse.
Ways to improve your sleep
You must avoid watching TV and working on the PC at least one hour before going to sleep. In this way, you’ll fall asleep much faster. Our brains are on high alert when we work on the computer or watch TV and once we are finished with it, our organism needs time to calm down the brain before we fall asleep.
