Yesterday I flicked through The Times and I saw an article on Sleep! The ability to fall asleep affects a lot of people. The article was quite funny. Hannah Betts the writer of the article and an insomniac for over 44 years shared what she tried from traditional method to the latest gadgets.
Did you know almost 40% of Brits suffer at least some symptoms with a quarter exhibiting chronic traits of sleep issues?
The first aid that comes to mind…
You may have tried already. Hot baths, warm milk, chamomile, lavender, valerian, alcohol, cherry capsules, calcium, Nytol, melatonin, antihistamines, antidepressants, Reiki, reflexology, massage, mediation, intercourse, aromatherapeutics, eye masks, earplugs, foot patches, open windows, state-of-the-art clocks, amethysts, rose quartz and moonstones…..
To take it a step further you can go for psychotherapy, CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy), ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy.
To understand why you cannot sleep might lead to explore more about sleep hygiene, diets, exercise, yoga, hypnosis, nature noises, craniosacral therapy, sound wave technology and sleep hyphogram apps to see if that will help or even participated in sleep boot camps.
These who are desperate like Hannah, go for the latest gadgets such as Sleep Shepherd, the Re-Timer light therapy glasses or Ostrich Pillow. In my view, that may make the matters worse.
Why would we invest so much time, effort and money to get a good night sleep?
As T.S. Wiley and Bent Formby, Ph.D. wrote in their book “Lights Out” If you get a 9-plus hours of sleep a night you:
- Lose weight
- Curb your cravings for carbohydrates
- Eradicate depression
- Lower your blood pressure and stress levels
- Reverse Type II diabetes
- Minimize the risk of heart disease
- Help prevent cancer
