The fight against insomnia is not easy. Most people that suffer from insomnia are either “worriers” or just too imaginative. The imaginative ones enjoy exploring the night as a nocturnal should, preferring the company of the cold. Such people think that they will miss out on something significant if they fall asleep at night.
Here is how to tackle insomnia
“I’ve always envied people who sleep easily. Their brains must be cleaner, the floorboards of the skull well swept, all the little monsters closed up in a steamer trunk at the foot of the bed.- David Benioff
FIGHT INSOMNIA: MORNING DELIGHT
Be happy for waking up today! The daylight should not be wasted by oversleeping. Be an early bird. There is a lot to do in the morning. Have a great start by having a satisfying breakfast to energize you throughout the day. Avoid sleeping during the day and reserve your good night’s sleep.
Exercise makes you healthy and sets a load of discipline applicable to your sleep cycle. By exercising, you get tired, so your body will require a good night’s sleep at night.
We have established the fact of avoiding sleep in the daylight and exercising. Now, along the day, do some work or studying. Keep busy doing the chores in the house, follow your boss’ orders and focus on your daytime work. This would take away your thoughts on how great your bed feels in busy days.
WHY NOT NOW?
The night feels exciting to some people who suffer from insomnia. It gives them the feeling that they dominate the world and that they are free to do whatever they like at night. They research about things that interest them, watch movies, and read books. Surprise, surprise! It looks like this stuff can be done in daylight. You need to remember that sleeping healthy. Do the right thing at the right time to avoid interfering with the sleeping cycle.
RELIEVE YOUR STRESS
Get your stress out. Overthinking about your problems won’t make them disappear. Worrying in the middle of the night won’t make a difference. Be wise and avoid worrying at night. You think the answers will be clearer just because it’s cold and relaxing, but think of how stressed you will look the day after. Sleep at night and tackle your problems in the morning.
TALK IT OUT
Often, insomnia is brought about by worries and unspoken thoughts. Therefore, it would be an excellent idea to find a buddy, get the squad, or a therapist, and talk. Who knows? They could add input and help you with your worries. Let the words flow out, your thoughts free.
In a desperate attempt to sleep, do something that bores the hell out of you. If you are a student, try to solve hard mathematical problems or read a history chapter that you don’t care about. Just do anything that just doesn’t catch your interest.
Turning the light off could help you have a better sleep. Most visuals can activate the mind and make you think about the things you see. When you see nothing but just plain black, your mind tends to relax, naturally opening a thought that there is nothing to do but sleep.
GET A GOOD PILLOW
A good pillow will take you to good places and give you satisfyingly sleep. Make your sleep tempting by having a good pillow that is irresistible by night and finds the position that suits your comfort.
Your mind should be set. Know that losing a good night’s sleep is not healthy. Not only will it make you moody, but it will also stress you out and make you appear older than you are. You may also develop permanent bags under your eyes and wrinkles.
Things will be easier when you’re actually committed to sleeping early and waking up early. The decision is up to you.
