Preventing Insomnia

Insomnia can hit anyone of any age, seemingly out of the blue. In fact, one in three people complain about insomnia. Not only is this the inability to get to sleep, but it also involves not being able to stay asleep. Here are some techniques that will help you combat the condition.

  • Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, including weekends. Keeping the same routine will help to program your body.

  • Avoid intense conversation, arguments, and upsetting news/talk show before bed.

  • Get a checkup from your physician. Your insomnia could be a side effect from a medical condition of some kind.

  • Avoid Alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, ginseng and heavy meals within six hours of your planned bedtime.

  • Exercise vigorously for thirty minutes at some time during the day.

  • Practice meditation, relaxation or prayer for 15 minutes during the day.

  • Keep your bedroom as cool and dark as possible. Make sure there is no television set in your room – your bedroom should be only for sleep/rest.

  • Breathe very deeply and slowly. Deliberately make yourself yawn repeatedly
