3 Reasons You May Not Be Sleeping And How To Prevent Them

There are many different factors that dictate the quality of your rest. And many cases, you can be doing everything correctly except for one minor thing. Here are the top 3 reasons stopping you from sleeping and how to prevent them.

 

Not Having a Consistent Lifestyle

The most efficient way to ensure good sleep is to maintain a consistent pattern of sleep. We naturally want to sleep when it's dark and be up while it's daytime. But you can still fine-tune this by knowing what works best for you. Consistency has great long term benefits.

 

Next, optimize your bedroom. You'll sleep better in a dark and quiet bedroom every night. Avoid watching TV before bed and don't use your smartphone, tablet or laptop within the last two hours of the day. If you work the night shift, use dark shades for your windows so you don't have too much exposure to natural light while sleeping. Your room should always be cool, instead of hot or cold, so aim for 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. And lastly, always go to bed at the same time every night and sleep for 7-9 hours.

 

Being Unhealthy

The foods you eat will play a huge role in how well you sleep. While eating a big meal can make you drowsy, you should avoid going to sleep on a full stomach. This can lead to erratic sleep patterns and insomnia. Foods that cause insomnia are alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and nightshades such as potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplants. Consumption of aged, fermented, cured and smoked foods such as cheese, wine, and smoked meats may also negatively affect your sleep cycle.

 

Living a Healthy Lifestyle includes eating healthy foods at the right time of day and avoiding bad habits such as smoking and snacking. You also need physical activity on a daily basis. It doesn't have to be vigorous exercise, a short walk at lunchtime, a stretching routine, or some yard work should be enough to improve your level of relaxation. If you are healthy enough for exercise, aim for 3-5 days per week, but avoid exercising before bedtime, as this will make it hard to fall asleep. Drinking an adequate amount of water each day, your body will function much more efficiently will reduce factors that negatively affect sleep.

 

Stress

Stress is a major factor that negatively affect your sleep quality. You have to work to remove stress and negative thoughts at bedtime. This can be done by reading a book, doing breathing exercises, or meditation. Meditating has many benefits such as lowered heart rate and blood pressure, anxiety reductions, slower respiration, and increased relaxation. It is known to heal-and-soothe the mind. There are many forms of meditation, so do your homework before attempting it.

 

Try to improve your attitude towards life. Consider the things that cause you stress. Ask yourself if you can fix this problem, if you can, then there is no need to worry. And if you cannot do anything about it, then you should not worry either, as worrying doesn't fix anything. Just roll with the punches. Everyone experiences hard times, but a positive mindset will help you get through them. You also won't get worked up over every little thing, causing you to literally sleep easier.

 

These 3 things should help you, but be sure to see your family doctor, a therapist, or set an appointment with a sleep clinic if you are having a lot of trouble sleeping.
