Learning about Insomnia at Our Apartments in Mount Dora, FL
Insomnia is a common problem that affects a persons sleep quality, causing him or her to have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. This leads to feelings of fatigue, irritability, daytime drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Thankfully, the majority of insomnia cases can be cured by self-help strategies.
If those who are struggling with insomnia, the below tips should be helpful in treating it:
Limit caffeine, and stop drinking it at least eight hours before bed.
Avoid taking naps, but if necessary, limit napping to 30 minutes and before 3 p.m.
Keep the bedroom dark, quiet, and cool.
Steer clear of stimulating activities (such as exercise or watching a dramatic movie) right before bed. Instead, opt for calming activities, like reading, listening to peaceful music, or doing stretching exercises.
Start logging sleep issues in a sleep diary to identify what may be causing the insomnia (caffeine intake, daytime habits, etc.).
Stick to a regular sleep and wake schedule, even on the weekends.
If the above self-help strategies do not ease insomnia symptoms, it may be worthwhile to speak to a doctor about the issue. A doctor may be able to diagnose the true culprit such as an illness causing the insomnia.
