What's Keeping You Awake?
Are you tossing and turning in bed all night long? Just can't seem to get a good night sleep? Or perhaps you spend endless hours counting sheep and still can't get any sleep. You are probably dealing with insomnia. Millions of Americans suffer with insomnia every night. They try endless remedies that do not seem to cure the insomnia problem. Most people who are missing out on sleep develop other health problems, making treating insomnia very vital to their overall health. First it is important to consult with your doctor to determine if you are stressed or if undiagnosed health problems exist. Otherwise, let's take a look at three important factors in the surroundings that might interfere with sleep patterns or cause insomnia.
Sleeping on the wrong kind of pillow might contribute to endless restless nights. People require pillows that are comfortable while giving support to their head, neck, and spines. It might be time to exchange that old pillow for a few new pillows. Health experts advise that people should purchase new pillows every year. Try a soft down or feather pillows which gives you good support without interfering with sleep. Note: those with feather allergies should avoid down pillows. Body pillows like Embrace Memory Foam Body Pillow are suitable for pregnant women and those with back problems that keep them awake. Buckwheat pillows are an Eco-friendly and natural product that gives your body plenty of support and proper body alignment.
Are you sleeping on a lumpy and very uncomfortable mattress? Well, consider exchanging that mattress for a new up to date mattress that allows you to sleep through the night and wake up refreshed and ready for the new day. Always look for a mattress that is very supportive and comfortable for your body type. Mattress types that are very popular include foam mattresses, air mattresses, water beds, interlocking coil, and more. Always purchase a high quality mattress with a long warranty.
Loud noises and loud neighbors or sleeping in a room close to outside traffic could keep you tossing and turning all through the night. Here are a few solutions to consider in combating noise pollution in your environment. Purchase a white noise machine like the HoMedics Sound Spa to drown out the noise pollution outside your room or window. Wear ear plugs to shut out the noise. Or move to a quieter bedroom.
