4 Tips on What to Do if You Can’t Sleep

Hi This is Jane Brown and I want to talk about Sleep, Sleep and Sleep!

Yes, so many of our followers have come to us asking what they can do because they are frustrated and full of anxiety.  They can’t sleep. They can’t function during the day.  More importantly, they can not get a restful sleep and relax all night.

In these stressful times, many people are facing the problem of an increased work load which creates anxiety. This anxiety and stress does not help to let your mind rest for an entire night’s sleep.  Also, other factors could include too much caffeine or alcohol, along with other diet and lifestyle choices, all play a huge part in not being able to totally relax and have a restful sleep.

To achieve a normal night’s sleep many people turn to medications, however, this will leave you tired and fatigued the next day.  Fortunately, there are many natural herbs that you can take to gain the rest you need to function the next day.

Common Sleeping Problems may be:

1.  Sleep Quality

  • difficulty falling asleep
  • difficulty staying asleep all night
  • your quality of sleep doesn’t feel like you have rested

2.  EDS

  • Being unusually sleepy all the time
  • Falling asleep while working or driving

4 Tips on What to Do if You Can’t Sleep:

1.  Avoid Caffeinated beverage such as Coffee and Alcohol in the late afternoon or evening

  • Instead try to drink lots of water and herbal tea

2.  Try to Follow a Regular Routine Before Bed

  • Turn off the TV at least two hours before you go to bed
  • Do not drink any liquids after 6 pm
  • Do not use the bed for eating, reading, watching TV or playing computer games

3.  Avoid or Limit your Stressful Work Schedule

  • Take a vacation!  YOU DESERVE IT!
  • Aim to leave your problems AT THE DOOR when you leave your office
  • Schedule a time to go over stressful thoughts which means not after 6 pm
  • Schedule a time to take in some mediation, possibly one hour before bedtime
  • Try to make time to “laugh” and spend a little time at it . . .

4.  Spend time in the Sunlight every day

  • Keep a strict routine of waking up to the sun – first thing in the morning
  • Keep a regular pattern of going to bed at a regular time
  • Make sure to keep the bedroom dark, quiet and not too warm

As always, we recommend that you consult with your doctor if you feel that you have some of the warning signs  or if you have any sleep related symptoms that interfere with your daily activities.
