Identifying a Sleeping Disorder

Posted on Tuesday Jul 17, 2012


A lot of people have told the Guru that “At night I can’t sleep. In the morning, I can’t wake up.” This is cause for great concern because it is my goal to help everyone get a better nights rest. Sleep is so important for our health that no one should go without. But sleep is not something I can give you it is something that must be planned out and taken very seriously. There is a difference between a sleeping disorder and sleep mistakes preventing you from sleep.

Take a minute and see if you are some one who has a sleeping problem or if you are just making sleeping mistakes that don’t allow you to get the rest you need. Think of one of the last times you didn’t get enough sleep and how you felt in the morning. For some of us this feeling might be limited to once in a while, however to those who suffer from sleeping disorders this feeling is more common. Some people even feel this way every single day.

Now everyone has trouble sleeping now and then. So how do you know if you have an issue on your hands or if you just stayed up to late watching TV?  Well first of all a sleeping disorder is defined as s a medical disorder of the sleep patterns of a person or animal. Some sleep disorders are serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental and emotional functioning. You know that you should see a medical professional when your sleeping patterns seem to interfere with your day to day life.

Are you having difficulty falling asleep at night or getting back to sleep after waking during the night?  Are you waking up frequently during the night? Is your sleep feeling light, fragmented, or non-refreshing when you wake up.  Do you feel that you need to take (sleeping pills, nightcap, supplements) in order to get to good night sleep. Do you suffer from sleepiness and low energy during the day. Do you snore during the middle of the night? Do you find yourself having trouble breathing during the night? If you said yes to more than one of these signs you may have a sleeping disorder.

Try to take notice of what you are doing during the day that may prevent you from sleeping at night. Try to avoid drinking caffeine afternoon, don’t eat four to five hours before you go to bed. Exercise during the day is great but when you get your heat rate up right before bed this makes it harder for our bodies to get to sleep. Try to exercise in the morning for maximum energy throughout the day. Some food including those ones high in sugar and fats should be avoided because no matter what time you eat them they hurt the quality of sleep. Turn off the TV, get off the internet, stay away from social networks late at night and get the room as dark as possible. All of these tips and tricks will help you get better sleep.

If you are having problems sleeping on a regular bases you should see a doctor and seek help. I would love to hear from you about any problems you may have sleeping.   Share with us on Facebook or Twitter your thoughts on over sleeping.
