Baby Boomers: Learn How to Relax Your Mind and Body Faster

Dec 12, 2007
Hey Baby Boomers...you are the largest generation in a long time, and let's face it you are getting older. That is not meant in a negative way, but only as a reminder that it is high time you began taking care of yourself.

Your health and well-being are so important at this age to stave off a wide variety of medical problems that affect both the body and the mind. So, if you are suffering from insomnia, it is imperative that you work toward a good night of sleep. Otherwise, it will catch up with you in the long run.

As you gingerly approach retirement age, you may feel that you will have all the time in the world to catch up on sleep once you are no longer working. This is the wrong attitude to have, because you can never really make up for lost sleep. In fact, trying is an exercise in futility. You should be focusing on the present, and working toward ensuring a good night of rest, each and every day.

Since you have so much to think about within the next few years, it might be a good idea to take your mind off things once in awhile. In order to do this, you have to find something that has a calming effect on you and the rest will fall into place. Since you are going to want to continue saving for that pending retirement, saving money is key. Rather than going to expensive spas and such, you can create a whole relaxation sanctuary in the comfort of your own home.

You might want to light some scented candles in your home and have a wonderful aroma permeate the house. If aromatherapy happens to tickle your fancy, you should especially try it at night. A little spritz on your linens and your insomnia will definitely not follow you into your golden years. This is a great way to train your body to fall asleep peacefully and naturally so you are on a normal schedule and will not delve deeper into the horrible world of night time restlessness.

Another great way to relax in order to maintain a healthy pattern of sleep is to do some stretching exercises. While you do not want to overexert yourself at bedtime, ensuring that your joints and muscles are not tight will allow you to rest easier. You might want to try yoga or Pilates in the evening to help center yourself, both body and mind. Exercise is extremely important for people as they get older and exercises that help you to focus and relax are all the better.

You do not want to feel uncomfortable and groggy all the time as a result of your insomnia, especially as you are looking forward to a long and productive retirement. Enhance your life by creating feelings of serenity and getting a good night of rest. The longer you wait, the harder it is to feel good, both inside and out.
