Get appropriate night sleep to fend off stress and poor sleep hygiene

It turns out that the current way of life full of stress, lack of physical exercise, high-levels of tech engagement are taking a toll on night sleep leading to high number of cases of insomnia.

Change in lifestyle including change in dinner times, beds, regular exercise could go a long way into fending off stress and poor sleep hygiene and establishing a healthy sleeping routine.

According to experts, an uncomfortable mattress is something that could interfere to a great extent with your sleep, forcing you to toss and turn throughout your sleeping hours. It might also cause muscular pains, nerve pinching, body ache and prolonged damage to body posture. A lot of work is being done today to optimize the ergonomics and structural development of mattresses, with innovative mattress makers.

Gadgets are interfering with our sleeping ‘sleeping area’ significantly. Assign a particular ‘zone of relaxation’ and equip it with material that aids you in your attempt to doze off peacefully. Aromatic candles, Zen music, calm repetitive simulated sounds such as raindrops can help bring the essential peace of mind needed to enjoy uninterrupted sleep.

A physically exhausted body craves rest. Ensure that you exercise vigorously for at least an hour each day and keep taking short walks and do freehand exercises while in the office. A sedentary lifestyle, too much of junk food and lazing on the couch all day long will only bring those extreme stages of frustration where you can’t sleep and your body feels completely drained out of energy to function properly.

While we spend our entire working hours being busy and putting up a brave face, it is only when our guard is down and we are alone that panic and anxiety set in and prevent us from falling asleep. When panic and insomnia show up together, it can be very hard to differentiate between the two. It is important to discuss our worries, concerns and apprehensions with someone who can help us battle our inner demons before they start manifesting themselves outwardly through ailments such as insomnia.
