Do you stare at the ceiling endlessly just waiting for morning to come around? Or do you find yourself tossing and turning and not being able to stay asleep? Most women at some point or other have found themselves not sleeping at night. This normally happens now and again and is really no cause for concern, but when lost sleep becomes a regular occurrence you might be suffering from a mild form of insomnia.
Insomnia affects different women in different ways and because of this there is no one cure for it so you will need to try different treatments and lifestyle changes to see what works best for you.
IN THIS EPISODE:
Understanding Sleep patterns
Causes of insomnia
Natural insomnia cures and solutions
Also here are the 6 helpful tips that I mentioned in the podcast:
- The temperature of your bedroom is really important, keep it around 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit
- Limit your caffeine intake after 6 pm
- Limit your alcohol intake as it won’t let your body get into the deep sleep phase
- Don’t get in the habit of using your bedroom as an office or TV room. You need to allow your body to associate your bedroom and your bed for sleep and intimacy only.
- Attempt to go to bed at the same time each night to get your body in a routine for sleep
- Don’t have your alarm clock in a prominent place. Watching the clock all night is a bad habit to develop and only proves to frustrate you further. Just go to bed and don’t worry how long it takes you to fall asleep and don’t watch the clock if you wake up in the middle of the night or that can set your body up to waking up at that time the next night as well.
