All Your Sleep Problems, Solved

lonelyDo you have sleep problems? Lack of sleep can cause increased daytime sleepiness, impaired vigilance, cognitive performance, more driving accidents, depression, disturbed sleep and hypertension. This sleepiness may result in inability to work effectively and may damage relationships and prevent socializing. Other symptoms include difficulty concentrating, unrefreshing night sleep, night choking, increased urination at night, and decreased libido.

Here are some common sleep problems and some tips on how to overcome them:

  • If you have trouble falling asleep, you should schedule your worries during the daytime. Allow 15 minutes of worrying time every day to focus on your worries and forget about them during bedtime. If this does not help, cognitive behavior therapy may also be done to learn ways on how to have a good night’s sleep. If these two don’t work, you can try resetting your body clock. Medication should be considered as the last resort.

  • If you wake up during the night, do not worry or get anxious of going back to sleep too soon. It's natural to wake up during the night, especially in between the deeper stages of sleep. If you woke up in the middle of the night, go back to your bed and close your eyes; do not do any other things. If these do not work, consider seeing a doctor.

  • If you feel exhausted after having a full-night’s sleep, consider other problems such as snoring, sleep apnoea, or things you did yesterday that made you wake up tired. Signs that you may have sleep apnoea include snoring, having a headache in the morning, and having dry mouth. You can have yourself treated by wearing an oxygen mask called a CPAP or a dental device that repositions your jaw and tongue to keep the airway open are other treatment options. Weight loss can also help.
