Earlier Rising Can Help Beat Insomnia

Aug 18, 2007
Get out of bed. Don't try and sleep your life away.

Our bodies have built in clocks that we feed off of. They tell us when we are tired and if we listen to them, we'll probably find ourselves in bed at approximately the same time each night.

If you've been in bed all night dealing with insomnia, the last thing in the world you want to do is to get out of bed earlier than you have to. Those last few moments under the comfort of your blankets is a treasure that you don't want to give up. However, giving up a few moments of sleep in the morning could mean a much longer sleep the next night.

Sometimes though they may be a bit off and instead of falling quickly to sleep, we feel the clutches of insomnia taking over.

Each minute that we sleep plays a role in how rested we feel. If we lose an hour of sleep, we might have a difficult day, feeling sluggish and tired and counting the hours until we can get home and back to bed. Quite often we do get to bed a bit earlier and instead of falling into a deep sleep as we anticipated we would, we instead toss and turn unable to get any rest.

One way to combat this in a natural way is to simply adjust the amount of time that you are sleeping. By getting up earlier, you are forcing your bodies internal clock to change and if you are suffering from insomnia, this can be a natural cure that works.

The morning comes and we feel exhausted, spending every last second we can in bed before the alarm sounds the beginning of our day. It's a pattern that can be repeated night after night. It doesn't need to be though.

Instead of turning to sleeping pills, you can try a much more natural approach. Varying the amount of sleep you get by getting out of bed earlier can make a huge difference.

Even just fifteen minutes each morning can have an effect. It's not easy though to climb out of bed when you are tired, but it's worth a try if you aren't getting the seven or eight hours of sleep that you feel you should be.

By the end of the day you'll really feel a change in your body from those lost moments of sleep. When your regular bedtime comes, you will feel prepared and tired enough that sleep will come much easier. You might even wake less times during the night.

It's important to stick to this routine for several mornings at the very least. Your body will adjust to this new sleep time and before long your insomnia will be a thing of the distant past.

What to do with that time in the morning is up to you. You can take a longer shower, work a bit or engage in some exercise. One thing that some people enjoy is preparing breakfast for a partner or a family.
