Insomnia: One Million People Owe Their Health to This Idea Even Though They Laughed at It

Jan 2, 2008
When it comes to a good health regimen, people often talk about eating right and exercising several times per week. But what they overlook is a good night of rest. In fact, they tend to mock this concept by doing everything they can to avoid sleeping the night through. It seems that adults just do not take sleep seriously enough, and it is affecting their health.

It is nothing new for people to overlook sound medical advice. Despite many reports that have shown the effects of insomnia on the mind and body, people tend to put their dozens of responsibilities before their own health. But nowadays, with prescription and over the counter sleep aids being so expensive, and people being inundated with sleep remedies left and right on television, we are seeing that it really is the best thing to just do it ourselves. We need to overcome our night time restlessness in order to feel better overall.

The way in which we can help ourselves to fall asleep at night might seem silly to some. For those who want a quick fix or who ply themselves with coffee and energy drinks, or who pop pills in the evening, falling asleep naturally is a foreign concept. But the main part of being able to stay asleep for the entire night is relaxation. Our bodies have to be calm, and our mind cannot be racing if we expect to avoid restlessness. If our brain is on the go, then it will never signal all the other parts to take it easy for the night.

A good place to start would be doing something that puts you in a good mood. You may not think that you can combat insomnia with a good movie or book, but engaging in these activities in the evening can help settle your nerves to make you sleepy at night. But your selection of book or movie cannot be one that makes you jumpy, of course. It would have to be an uplifting story that has a happy ending. Then you can go to sleep in peace.

Another great method of relaxation is aromatherapy. Some people are quick to write this off because the feel that there is nothing a scent can do for them, or that it will overwhelm them if it is too strong. Yet, if used correctly, studies show that this is one of the most effective methods out there, because it is natural and is non-invasive to the body. All it does is trigger something within the nerve center for the brain to relax because it has a calm feeling. The more familiar or pleasant the smell is to the person, the faster they will fall asleep.

The moral of the story is don't knock something until you have tried it, because it could turn out to be the best thing you ever did. And since you won't have to deal with insomnia anymore, you'll have the last laugh.
