5 Ways to Battle Insomnia
2
  • The repetitive cycle of tossing and turning
    begins soon after an insomniac has attempted to
    rest for the night.

3
  • This then leads to mindless hours spent fidgeting
    on the bed. The ears can now turn painfully
    sensitive to the lightest of sounds in the room.

4
  • This ordeal continues until the morning, when the
    rest of the world is up and running while the
    insomniac has to trudge through their daily
    routine.

5
  • Insomnia affects many these days. Our lifestyles
    are at fault. But the solutions to this problem
    are simple ones that you can easily make effect
    of.

6
  • Here is a list of things that you can do to help
    cure insomnia

7
1. Develop healthy sleeping habits
  • Even if sleep is elusive, go to bed each day at
    the same time at around 10 and wake up by 7
    (depending on your daily schedule, reserve 9
    hours for the entire process of sleep).

8
  • Erratic sleeping patterns and prolonged naps
    during the day send your biological clock for a
    toss. Avoid these and also excessive consumption
    of tea or coffee.

9
2. Stress management
  • Stress, from any source of your life, can induce
    insomnia.

10
  • Take time off to stretch your arms and legs and
    generally maintain a positive outlook. Talk to
    your friends and family and reach out to a doctor
    if the problem persists.

11
3. Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • This therapy aims to dispel any undesirable
    thoughts about sleep that may crowd your mind and
    keep you awake. You may want to try this therapy
    if sleep has now become a distant dream.

12
4. Sleeping aids
  • While over the counter drugs are strongly
    discouraged as they may have long-term
    repercussions, medicines can be taken if your
    doctor so advises.

13
  • Melatonin is a hormone that regulates sleep cycle
    and sometimes melatonin supplements are advised
    to people who suffer from jet lag induced
    insomnia.

14
5. Sweat it out
Exercise releases a burst of hormones that will
help you feel good about yourself.
15
It will enable exhaustion to creep in and ensure
that you get a good nights sleep.
