Sleeping Trouble And What You Can Do About It

Trouble sleeping can spring from a wide array of problems and can lead to a restless night or sleep deprivation which can be very serious.  Listed below are some of the common reasons why people are having trouble sleeping and how to deal with those problems.

Stress and Anxiety
Stress is a major contributor to why people have difficulty sleeping.  Stress causes a wide array of effects on your health from headaches to a lower immune system and many of the problems that result from stress can interfere with your sleep.

If you are having difficulty falling asleep because of stress or anxiety there are some simple things that you can do to help.  Stress controlling and stress reduction techniques can help you to reduce the amount of stress in your life that is causing you to have difficulty sleeping.  Try meditating before you go to bed to help you unwind.  Aromatherapy is another way to naturally help you relax and soothe you off to sleep.  It will also help to use bath oils or aromatic bath salts in a warm bath before bedtime, spraying your bed sheets with a lavender sleep mist, or using aromatherapy pillows are also great ways to promote a relaxing night of sleep.

Difficulty Getting Comfortable
Many people have difficulty falling asleep because they cannot seem to get comfortable in bed at night so they toss and turn through the night.  Sometimes this can be due to an uncomfortable bed, poor pillow support, or pain.

There are a couple of things that you can do to improve our quality of sleep. If you cannot seem to get comfortable due to back or neck pain, this can be a sign that you are using the wrong kind of pillow.  Try using a pillow that gives you more head and neck support so that it can give you a natural alignment during sleep such as a contoured memory foam pillow or adjusting the height and firmness of your pillows by perhaps adding or taking away for comfort.  If your pain still remains it may be a sign of a more serious problem that you may want to speak to your doctor about.

Sleep Disorders
There are a lot of sleep disorders that can be mild or very serious, life-threatening conditions.  If you have trouble sleeping that is continuous and that does not go away when you try any of the other remedies then your trouble sleeping could be a sign of something more.

Talk to your doctor or go to a local sleep center who can test and treat you for sleep disorders.
