Insomnia Cause Revealed
Insomnia Cause Revealed
by Lynda Forsythen
The insomnia cause you are searching for may be right in your own mirror. That's right you could be the cause of your sleepless nights. Without even knowing it you could be doing things that are depriving you of a good night sleep.
* Do you have alcohol before bed?
* Do you consume alcohol before going to sleep?
* Do you have anything with caffeine (even decaffeinated drinks have some caffeine) before bed?
If the answer to any of these questions was yes, you may be contributing to your insomnia cause.
We do so many things every day without even realizing that these things will cause us to need help falling asleep. Don't blame yourself, more than 70 million people need help falling asleep because of daily habits. Some of these are listed below.
* Exercising at night
* Exercising too close to bedtime
* Making a TO DO LIST that is too long (thinking about what you didn't get done)
* Drinking too much coffee during the day
* Thinking about the uncertainty of tomorrow
Just as we can be our own insomnia cause, we can also be the cure to overcoming insomnia. Small changes in our daily routines are a simple way to start. I know people that simply cut their TO DO LIST by half. Be realistic when it comes to what you can get done in one day. And don't worry if you can't finish it. Do the necessary things first and always block out time for relaxing, even 20 minutes a day can make a big change in your sleep pattern.
The National Sleep Foundation did a study and found that people sleep 20% less today than we did 25 years ago. Believe it or not, the cost that goes along with this lack of sleep is an estimated $150 Billion dollars.
The cost to you is:
* Concentration problems
* Low scores on tests
* Poor performance at work
* Relationship problems
These are just a few of the things that can happen when you lose sleep. I am sure you can think of many other things that have happened to you because you lost sleep the night before.
You may not be your only insomnia cause. It may be your partner as well.
Does your partner steal the covers or snore loudly? If they are anxious about something and they toss and turn at night they could be your insomnia cause. Have him or her read this and between the two of you maybe you can come up with solutions for your best sleep aids.
Remember you can be the cure for your insomnia cause.
