I’ve done everything to make my eyes tired. I spent an hour on the internet, watched TV, read Magazine … but I can’t sleep. I turned the air-condition , put on new bedding and sprayed aromatic fume at the room but still my eye is wide awake.
I am tempted to take the sleeping pills my brother gave me but I am afraid it might do hard than good to me. My bro is a physician and assured me that it’s safe . I trust him but I don’t trust the medicine. what do you think ?
I am staying awake here at the hospital as watcher of a sick friend, I can not sleep well. My thought wandered on INSOMIA, so I browsed the web and search on the danger of insomnia . Here’s some of the consequences :
- Accidents. Insomnia endangers public safety by contributing to traffic and industrial accidents. Various studies have shown that fatigue plays a major role in automobile and machinery accidents. As many as 100,000 automobile accidents, accounting for 1,500 deaths, are caused by sleepiness.
- Impaired mental functioning. Insomnia can affect concentration and memory, and can affect one’s ability to perform daily tasks.
- Stress and depression. Insomnia increases the activity of the hormones and pathways in the brain that cause stress, and changes in sleeping patterns have been shown to have significant affects on mood. Ongoing insomnia may be a sign of anxiety and depression.
- Headaches. Headaches that occur during the night or early in the morning may be related to a sleep disorder.
- Heart disease. One study reported that people with chronic insomnia had signs of heart and nervous system activity that might put them at risk for heart disease.
Getting older does not necessarily mean that we have to deteriorate with age, it merely means that we have to do a little extra maintenance to stay healthy. Gone are the days when turning 40 meant a downhill slide. We have the knowledge to deal with getting older and can confront it head-on. Sometimes we just need to make a few healthy lifestyle changes to see the light of day and help maintain our good health.
One of these changes may include getting a proper sleep. A body repairs itself during sleep so it is always important to give it enough sleeping time to get the job done. Sleep deprivation can affect you more in your later years and sleep is an important part of aging beautifully and gracefully.
But sleeping with my partner is impossible!
If your second half is a person that tosses and turns throughout the night you may have to look at a simple lifestyle change in this department. If you find that it is affecting you more nowadays than it used to, there is a simple solution. Instead of getting separate beds in different rooms, try setting up full size bunk beds in your bedroom. This way, you’ll still be together in the room but you’ll actually be able to get a good night’s sleep.
When it’s time for separate beds, some people try getting two singles to fit in the bedroom. If you’ve been used to a full bed, however, it can take some getting used to. Plus, two single beds in the room will take up more space than full size bunk beds that still offer enough sleeping room for a good night’s rest. It’s an option to take a look at anyway.
Are they comfortable?
These days bunk beds are manufactured not only for convenience but for comfort as well. There is a growing market for this type of full sized bed as more and more people are downsizing due to economic conditions. This means that there is a lot more healthy competition between bunk bed manufacturers. The beds are sturdy and offer full support for adults.
Do you need to get more sleep? This is just one of the many options that you can look at when you live with a tosser and turner that keeps you up at night. You’ll have to address the problem at some point to make sure that you’re staying as healthy as possible by getting enough sleep.
While still doing my task as ” Master of Ceremony” of a friend’s wedding, a received a call from my mom’s house help. My Mom was rushed to the nearest hospital because she was not feeling well.She suspect that her blood pressure shoot-up again. I saw her lying on the bed at the emergency section of Cagayan University Medical City . The doctor said that her oversleeping this day caused the headache. He expressed that for people who are prone to headaches, sleeping longer than usual on a weekend can cause head pain and even flatulence while sleeping. Oversleeping has on certain neurotransmitters in the brain. People who sleep too much during the day and disrupt their sleep in the evening may also find themselves suffering from headaches in the morning.
Thank God it was only over-sleeping!
