Insomnia or Busy Bedroom?

You may think you have insomnia, but perhaps is your bedroom just too busy. Are you preventing yourself from getting a restful night because there is so much going on in your bedroom?

Take a look at what's in your bedroom. Does it serve a dual purpose? It is a bedroom/home office or bedroom/TV room? If yes, a few adjustments may help you sleep better. How often have you fallen asleep while the television is still on? You make want to remove television from your bedroom, especially if you know that you are often tempted to watch just more program. If your television has a timer set it so your television is turned off after you watch the late night news. If possible watch the news, etc., somewhere else in your home before you go to bed.

Try these ideas:
Do not resort to over-the-counter sleep aids before you have tried natural alternative methods, instead, talk to your doctor. You may be asked to take a physical examination, better one more examination than your treatment of a guessed diagnosis. If your mates or your own snoring wakes you up at night, your mate or you may have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder and should be dealt with by your physician.

See Medline Plus a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health for information about insomnia and sleep apnea .
