Do you have trouble sleeping, or wake up often during the night? If you feel that you fall into this category of sleeplessness, you could have a mild case of insomnia. As most people think insomnia is the inability to fall sleep, many are unaware that waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep is also considered a type of insomnia. If you want to wake up in the morning and feel refreshed rather than waking up too early in the morning and feeling tired, you are in luck! Follow these simple tips to avoid waking up tired while overcoming your insomnia.
1. Things to avoid late in the day include caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, heavy meals, and exercise (exercise should be early in the day); in other words, anything that will stimulate your body and keep you from relaxing before going to sleep.
2. Try to go to sleep at the same time and wake up at the same time every day; make your bedroom dark, quiet, and comfortable when you are ready to fall asleep.
3. Use sleeping masks if there is a light source that bothers you and earplugs if there is noise that keeps you from sleeping comfortably.
4. Avoid taking naps during the day, as this will create a conflict with your sleeping schedule.
5. A routine to help you relax before sleeping is highly recommended, like reading a book, listening to music, or taking a bath.
If what is keeping you awake is worrying about things you need to do, the experts suggest you make a to-do list for the next day. If you follow these simple tips, you will be well on your way in overcoming insomnia as well as creating a more productive sleeping schedule.
