How to Reduce Insomnia

Nearly everyone will have trouble sleeping from time to time. However, if you can't sleep for a large portion of the night or have trouble sleeping almost every night, you may have a problem with insomnia.  

Insomnia can plague you for a number of different reasons and can manifest in different ways.
You may find that you have trouble falling asleep or you might fall asleep easily, but then have difficulty staying asleep.
 
When you're suffering from lack of sleep, it's important to focus on finding a solution as soon as possible. Whether you're going to try natural or prescription medication methods, you should be able to find something that works in your case. Of course, always consult your physician.
 
Consider the following for reducing insomnia:
 
1.    Get adequate exercise. Exercise not only helps your body, it helps your mind as well. It's an excellent activity for your total body health. Exercise relieves stress and releases chemicals in the brain that puts you at ease and helps you relax.
 
2.    Wind down at the end of the day. If you feel anxious at the end of the day and have trouble falling asleep, it's important to take time to wind down. Decide that the 30-60 minutes before bedtime is a time for relaxation for you. Instead of TV, food, alcohol, or caffeine, try a bath, journaling, prayer, or meditation.
  • Release your mind from heavy thoughts or important decisions before bed.
  • Engage in an activity that you personally find relaxing and make sure you do it every night. Bedtime routines are important to overcome insomnia.
3.    Valerian root. Valerian root is a popular natural remedy for insomnia. It helps calm you and reduces anxiety symptoms so you can relax before bed. It's a good choice alternative if you'd rather take a natural route, instead of resorting to prescriptions.
 
4.    Reduce stress. Take time to identify what is causing you stress in life. If you're taking on too much, consider giving yourself a lighter load. If you're having problems at home or work, focus on those problems first. You may notice that solving your day-to-day problems will directly help you solve your insomnia at night.

5.    Prescription medication. There are many prescription medicines you can consider taking after getting diagnosed by a doctor or psychiatrist. Your doctor first needs to determine the cause of your insomnia. Some prescriptions that may help include antidepressant drugs and anti-anxiety medication. Consult with your family physician to learn more about this option.
 
Getting Rid Of Insomnia
 
While you may not be able to get rid of insomnia forever, these tips should give you the power to keep it at bay. However, if you feel that you can't control the problem, be sure to seek professional help.
 
The real trick to reducing insomnia is to find the underlying cause. When you can't sleep, there's usually something deeper at play. You may have an overactive mind, unresolved conflict in your life, stress at home or work, or other issues. Whatever the case is, it's important to get the help you need to seek solutions. Once you solve that underlying issue, you'll feel overjoyed when you're able to get a good night's rest!

Wealth Insight 2009-12-18 We think about money so much. But what do we think about?   How much we have. How much we need. How much we want.   We only see it from that point of view.   And I would say, this is not enough. Considering how much of our time it takes up, we should know it better.   Why? Because it isn’t just there. Like a mountain. Or the sea. People made it. People manage it. It’s not perfect. It’s not neutral. It’s not like a force of... Read more...
