Ladies: Knock-Out The Effects Of Insomnia Without Your Plastic Surgeon

Jul 4, 2008
If you are 40+, and you are beginning to look and feel - older, there is no need to head to the plastic surgeon for nips and tucks. The problem is that your your lack of sleep is expediting the aging process, and you can feel it on the inside, while seeing it on the outside. There is one secret that all women, whether rich or poor can do to knock-out the effects of insomnia.

Want to know what it is? Of course, you do!

The benefits of getting seven to nine hours of sleep every night are extraordinary, and should not be missed or 'made up for' at another time. Once you get into the healthy habit of sleeping soundly for a long period of time, you will certainly start to look and feel better overall. Yes, it is that simple.

Normal sleeping patterns allow time for the body to come to a complete halt and restful state. Once at rest, the nervous system shuts down, and the brain is signaled to be in a subconscious state. Free of worry and nervousness, this is a chance for the body to gently and naturally renew itself both internally and externally.

While the body is resting, it is a chance for the organs to be revitalized and for the cells to regenerate, particularly in the skin. If you are getting proper sleep, the body will have sufficient time to do what it is supposed to do, and as a result, your body will overall be healthier.

Other Benefits for your Skin
The benefits of good sleep on your over-all health is immense, however the benefits on your skin are also remarkable and very noticeable. For example, sleep relaxes the facial muscles and that helps to smooth wrinkles and lines on your face.

The lying-down position is opposite to the daily action of gravity on the skin. It's not pulling down when you're lying down. This too helps in reducing the gravitational stress on your facial skin and aids in the reduction of lines and wrinkles on your face.

Similarly, the lack of facial expressions during the night allows the dermal layers of your skin to rejuvenate. You may have noticed that after a good night's sleep, you actually look younger and your skin has less pronounced lines and wrinkles

If you know there is a natural and healthy way to fight the effects of aging, why are you not doing it? While there are certain other supplemental behaviors you can engage in to ensure your feeling young, it all begins and ends with proper rest and relaxation. For all of you insomniacs out there, you should really take the time to investigate why in fact you are having trouble falling asleep. Once you have a few ideas as to why it is hard for you to get at least seven hours of rest each night, you can finally take action about your problem.

No longer do you need to wake up with excessive bags under your eyes, and feeling like you have just been run down by a semi truck. Consider that if the main thing you need to change in your life is lying on your soft bed and do absolutely nothing, it is certainly worth looking into.

But, I know some of you are fanatical about your looks and want to know what else should a girl do to knock-out effects of insomnia, so that you don't need to visit the plastic surgeon - at least not yet anyway. Well below is information from the University of Maryland Medical Center and Princeton University on tips for this very thing. Enjoy.

* Don't go to bed hungry or full. Hunger and indigestion hinder sleep.

* Establish a regular time for going to bed and getting up in the morning and stick to it even on weekends and during vacations.

* A light snack before bedtime can help sleep, but a large meal may have the opposite effect. Eating lightly to induce sleep.

* Get regular exercise (3-4 times per week), but not right before you plan to go to sleep - mid-afternoon is best.

* Use the bed for sleep and sexual relations only, not for reading, watching television, or working; excessive time in bed seems to fragment sleep.

* Create the right environment. Make sure your room is dark and quiet, and the right temperature. Most experts agree cooler temperatures work best.

* Don't nap. But if you have to, do it before 3 pm and for less than an hour.

*Reduce stress. If you're worried about getting your work done, make a to-do list for the next day.

*Read a book, or some other calm activity that relaxes you. Creating a relaxing ritual can help your body slow down in preparation for sleep.

*Practice relaxation techniques before bedtime. Deep breathing and visualization techniques can help you relax and facilitate sleep.

*Avoid sleep-disturbing substances like alcohol and caffeine.

*Take a hot bath about an hour and a half to two hours before bedtime. This alters the body's core temperature rhythm and helps people fall asleep.

* Do something relaxing in the half-hour before bedtime. Reading, meditation, and a leisurely walk are all appropriate activities.

* Keep the bedroom relatively cool and well ventilated.

You should not have to feel so worn out all the time, and cringe every time you look in the mirror when you wake up. Your entire body will certainly thank you, and you will be ready to start the day with the energy of someone ten years younger, not ten years older. Make yourself feel so much better by turning in for the night, and not just sleeping for a couple of hours at a time.

Don't disrupt your sleep for a few nights in a row, and you will see just how much insomnia was affecting your body. So, go ahead and knock-out insomnia for good!
