by  Karen Bailey

Insomnia, hyper insomnia, sleep deprivation, whatever name is used the number of symptoms and resulting problems are many. In essence, as human animals, we generally live in cycles and our bodies follow our body clock, or Circadian rhythm. (See Diagram, click to enlarge) If the rhythm is disrupted we suffer from one of the foregoing problems.CLICK TO ENLARGE HUMAN BODY CLOCK To cure insomnia it is necessary to know  why we can’t sleep.

The causes of insomnia can be physical or mental or both and it affects at least twenty percent of the population. Long term, the effects of sleep deprivation can be devastating.

Over the last ten years there has been more research into the possible causes and effects of Insomnia. CLICK HERE TO SEE RESEARCH VIDEO  some of the results have pointed to many different problems that may not have been previously associated with sleep patterns.

Studies have often shown difficulties in learning even simple tasks when sleep deprived. The brain is first in line to suffer, it seems, if not enough sleep is taken. Other studies have suggested even more serious problems such as heart and mental problems.

The onset of insomnia can come at any age and be completely unexpected. the causes are potentially many and varied and include job or personal changes, stress, pain and trauma, short or long term illness, emotional problems, a death and recurrent thoughts. Of course, some of these individual causes can combine which makes diagnosis complicated.

If you are looking for some self help, here are some tips you can try today.

  1. Ensure your bedroom is completely dark and cool. Light and heat both work against the bodies natural sleep patterns.
  2. The 2-3 hours before going to bed are crucial to your sleep. You should avoid stimulants. (caffeine in drinks and foods, nicotine etc). Avoid eating heavy meals inside the three hour period. Don't Exercise. Avoid too much liquid so as to avoid getting up in the night to use the bathroom.
  3. Plan to go to bed at roughly the same time every night. Widely varying times of going to bed merely upset the rhythms.
  4. Have a pre-bed routine. During the hour before bed, disconnect with the activities of the day. Don't start anything that will keep you busy or occupied. 'Park-up' any metal activity that might keep you awake - write out some notes if you have to and resolve to deal with them tomorrow. Relax and unwind. As far as you can, completely empty the mind of thoughts of any kind, including sleep!
  5. Avoid naps at any time during the day, this especially includes the evening! If you are tired then go to bed earlier and get up earlier. Listen to your body and go with what it wants not want you mind thinks it wants!
  6. Aim to get at least 20 minutes in the fresh air and sunshine every day. This is a positive help if the circadian rhythm has been disrupted.
  7. Completely avoid any activity that stimulates the brain. Definitely no laptops, mobile ‘phones, TV etc. And, leave the James Bond books for your holiday vacation. However, sometimes reading can help you fall asleep so chose gentle material like some poetry or a spiritual book.
