Natural Remedies For Women’s Sleeping Disorders
You’ll be surprised as to how many people have insomnia, and don’t even know it. Large numbers of people have improper sleeping patterns which may lead to health problems, and in the long term, heart and liver failure.
Getting enough sleep is so important for our vital organs to function correctly and for the body to recharge and repair itself. It is recommended that we get a minimum of eight hours a night, but unfortunately too many people are getting by on much less than that.
If you’re a woman in your forties, it’s a probability that you too might have issues getting enough shut-eye each night. It’s not surprising that a lot of women in this age group have insomnia, considering the number of family and financial-based issues they have to worry about. Menopause also occurs around this time and the female body goes through drastic changes.
There is usually a cause for your inability to get a decent sleep pattern, and that could be because your body responds differently to sleep as you get older. Knowing this alone can help a lot and ease your anxiety and help you accept the circumstances of aging.
There are several solutions to getting back into sleep. It is best to avoid taking sleeping pills and try to regain a healthy sleeping routine via natural means. You should try the following:
Maintaining a routine is important and you should try your best to wake up at the same time daily during the working week, and also weekends if possible (we all love sleeping in on Saturdays but doing that could break our pattern for the following week).
Many people find that by reading, or doing something boring helps put them to sleep each night. Get out your favorite book or listen to some classical music perhaps (whatever you fancy). Stay away from anything that would stimulate your mind or body and cause restlessness. Avoid drinking any coffee at least four hours before bed time.
Have you ever tried so hard to sleep on certain nights that it seems as though the harder you try, the hard it is to get to sleep? Don’t try to force sleep to occur as it will just lead to frustration, and you get the reverse effect. Instead ensure that your room is as dark as possible as it helps to have as few visual stimuli as possible. Now try to open your eyes as wide as possible and do your best to stay awake by concentrating on a small spot in your room. This generally works well and will most likely induce sleep within minutes.
