What is a good way to cure insomnia?
I fell into a pattern throughout the year to sleep in a three hours a night, being tired at school, taking a nap three hours after school, then do the same again the following night. And weekends (like spring break) are the only time I get to sleep, thus being the only time I feel excited. I tried to fall asleep many times before and it seems to work. I just finished sitting up in bed awake for hours thinking up I'm bored and read a book or something. I missed a lot of the school in recent months because I am exhausted from not sleeping. It take a toll on my grades, health and personal life. How does one go about curing their insomnia? > _>
Exercise, but not within 2 hours of bedtime. Have a warm bath or shower, one hour before bedtime, and a glass of warm milk, possibly with Horlicks, or one of the teas, below, and use dimmer lighting. Put your mind in a position where it wants to shut, and sleep. See insomnia treatments, in much more detail than can be included here, in Section 3, Ezy build, below. Use one of the methods relaxation in bed after lights out in Sections 11, 2, 2.c, or 2.i, but they can take some time to master, (Progressive Relaxation Muscle excepted) so learn and become proficient in their use during the day. An alternative is to use EFT, Article 53, by saying: "Even though I sometimes sleep disorder, I deeply and completely accept myself" (or choose your own words) while using acupressure tapping some more; .. Fast and easy to learn, are http://www.umm.edu/sleep/relax_tech.htm muscle relaxation progressive (most easily learned) guided imagery, and mindfulness breathing are known to be effective. Find out what works best for you, within hours of the day, so you will be prepared, come bedtime. For many people, a good idea is to develop a set "wind down "routine for the last hour before bedtime, so your subconscious mind learns that it is time to put the thought aside and prepare for mindfulness, (awareness, without reflection / intentional thought) or the EFT, in preparation for sleep, but the idea with mindfulness is to not even think about sleeping: just drift naturally in the performance of these techniques. Avoid television, a computer or something exciting in this hour, although reading a BORING! book is a good idea. I suggest that you try to use variant of EMDR, in Section 3, page before mindfulness or progressive muscle relaxation, but after the EFT, if that method is chosen. Experiment to find the combination that works best for you. I also use it before my chosen relaxation technique, after lights out, the night. Get a strong light, preferably sunlight (though covered) soon after waking in the morning to reset your pace circadian. Your room is very dark after lights out, sleep and a temperature of 70 F is good, or 19 C. No naps during the day. Take a cup of chamomile tea herbal, one hour before bedtime, and employ many techniques in Section 3. Others may prefer Sleepytime, by Celestial Seasonings, Relax, be sleepy, or valerian root, from supermarket tea, or health food aisles. http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/ Shaneris ~ * If you are one of the 40% of people are quite impressionable, you might consider professional hypnotherapy, or: cure insomnia, and sleep and dream, and sleep like a child, and drift off to sleep, and rapid or Fall Asleep http://www.hypnosisdownloads.com/ from: http://www.asktheinternettherapist.com/h ... - Quiet sleep blessed & Enjoy Deep Sleep, Healing & Restorative Sleep.
