What Keeps You Awake?

Published by Ellen Joy at 9:03 pm under Health and Wellness

A lot of people find it hard to get some sleep. Like me, for instance. I’m supposed to be very sleepy now because I am already so tired but here I am still wide awake and blogging my way to sleepiness. Anyway, let’s go back to the topic. There are many reasons why you cannot get a wink of sleep and here are some of the most common.

a. You are so stressed at work.
b. You have a family, a marriage, or a relationship problem.
c. Someone dear to you is in trouble or sick.
d. You have financial problems.
e. You ate plenty of spicy foods
f. You drank plenty of coffee or tea.
g. You ate plenty of chocolates
h. You are having your period.
i. You are pregnant.
j. You are in your menopausal stage.
k. You are sleeping in an inconvenient bed.
l. You have a very noisy environment.
m. It is either very hot or very cold.
n. You are experiencing pain.
o. You are taking drugs that keep you awake.
p. You have arthritis or allergies.
q. You have jet lag.
r. You are new to the environment you’re in.

Hmmm…. I can’t think of anything more. In case you are suffering from lack of sleep due to any of these reasons, what you should do is to address the root of the problem. For example, if you cannot sleep because of an uncomfortable bed, then get something more comfortable like adjustable beds, or if you cannot sleep because you are so stressed out then make it a point to solve your issues, manage your time and your priorities so you can lessen your worries. You can also try taking sleeping pills, drinking milk before going to bed, avoiding heavy meals during dinner, watching or reading something boring, and other tricks.
