Beating Insomnia

Sleep AidMay 31, 06

Many Americans suffer from insomnia .

Insomnia can be caused by a variety of factors, including consumption of caffeine, nicotine or alcohol; stress or anxiety; a change in sleep schedules; snoring or nightmares.

The American Sleep Association offers advice on how put this sleep disorder to bed.

Insomnia can often be treated by addressing any underlying emotional issues or stresses. Another way to get better quality sleep is to only use the bedroom for sleeping. Watching television, working, or talking on the phone should be done elsewhere. You should avoid watching television before bed, as that can be a stimulant.

If you have a hard time falling asleep, you should try reading or another relaxing activity before heading to bed. Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol in the hours before bedtime.

Setting an alarm and waking at the same time each day will help establish a regular sleep pattern, and may help you achieve better, more consistent sleep.
