Counting sheep may have helped you put your
insomnia to bed a couple of times – perhaps the last time you couldn’t sleep
too, but you have some more pressing underlying issues to have to attend to if you’re
struggling to get some shut-eye on a more regular basis. While there are plenty
of options to pursue in addressing your insomnia, the best approach is a
wholesome one, which means you’d endeavour to keep everything you do in aid of
the process as natural as possible.
take sleeping pills
Whether you have them in your medicine
cabinet or indeed if you’d have to dress up to go out and get them, either way,
sleeping pills epitomise one of the biggest problems perpetuated by the
pharmaceutical industry. That’s of course the problem of creating some kind of
dependency within patients, so that you have to keep taking some kind of
medication or undergoing treatment in order to temporarily address the medical
issue you’re having.
Sleeping pills can be very addictive. If
you absolutely have to get some emergency sleep, perhaps if you have a big day
lined up the next day or something like that, vow to only ever take sleeping
pills once and once only! Resist the urge to stock up on an entire month’s
supply or anything like that. Rather buy them in the required single-dose…
For the most part, if you’re suffering from
insomnia, it’s likely a psychological issue. It could very well be a deeper,
underlying physical or medical issue, but insomnia and overcoming it pretty
much epitomises the belief that the mind is more powerful than the body.
Consequently, your mind is likely over-stimulated and is in a state that is
miles away from where it needs to be in order to trigger the need to sleep. So
you might as well make the most of this extra time you have awake.
Use that time to prepare for the following
workday, or perhaps work on whatever it is which is keeping you awake. If that
involves anything to be done on your computer, make sure to use the night light
This is of course just a temporary
solution, which can work really well once or twice, otherwise you’ll have to go
deeper to address the root cause of your insomnia.
If the lack of sleep is affecting your daily
life in a big way that effectively requires it to be managed ASAP, use natural
remedies to aid in its alleviation. Greyhound
Chromatography offers some great insights into the
use of cannabidiol (CBD), which can make for a more organic supplement with
which to address your insomnia, otherwise you’ll have to find other natural,
complementary ways to make a lifestyle adjustment. Wake up earlier in the
morning, perhaps, in addition to switching up your exercise regime (or starting
one if you don’t exercise).
Do a detox and switch up your diet as well, to
incorporate more whole foods and eliminate as many processed foods as you can.
If a prolonged effort as laid out above still
doesn’t seem to solve the problem, it might be time to get the expert opinion
of a medical professional specialising in the area of sleep.
