How To Treat Insomnia

There’s no doubt about it - insomnia is draining, debilitating, and a huge challenge. If you think you’re suffering from insomnia, whether that’s an acute or chronic inability to sleep (you can find out more about the different types of insomnia here), it can feel like a constant uphill battle to try and help yourself. Many doctors and scientific articles state that taking sleeping pills only masks the problem when it comes to insomnia. So how can you best treat it so that you’re not suf...

What is Insomnia?

Ever found yourself tucked up in a comfy warm bed, with work put away for the day, no noise to distract you, but still unable to sleep? If you have, you might find that you’re suffering from insomnia. Insomnia is a very complex sleep issue which in short, means that if diagnosed, you’re having trouble sleeping for no tangible external reason. It can affect both falling asleep in the first place, as well as staying asleep once you do have success in drifting off, and can be caused by any numb...

#BeatTheFear: What is the Sunday Fear?

Ever get that feeling of dread on a Sunday evening, knowing that the alarm's going to go off at some wicked hour tomorrow morning, and you'll no longer be able to lay under your cosy duvet and dream the day away like you have done for the past two glorious days? The feeling of anxiety, and never-ending wish that the weekend had an extra day in it, is what we know as the Sunday fear. Much akin to the feeling of not wanting to go back to school after a holiday you may have felt as a youngster, the...

Five ways to ensure good sleep tonight

Sleep is a complex thing. The benefits of a good night's sleep are immense, and the detriment to the body when we don't get enough can be drastic. We know these things, but somehow, the added pressure of knowing that we need to sleep doesn't always result in a restful night. The Express realised this, and took the matters into their own hands by asking for sleep advice from everyone with an opinion in the sleep industry. From Feng Shui experts to personal trainers, many professionals have an ...

Lack of sleep can encourage growth of cancerous tumours

It is by no means news to us that sleep deprivation can have dire negative effects on the body. A good night's sleep is responsible for keeping the level of hormones balanced in the body, along with many other health-promoting functions. When we don't regularly get the amount of sleep our bodies need to perform at their optimum – especially if the immune system is already compromised with something like cancer – the body begins to shut down in various different ways. According to the Dail...

Doctors say aged cheese can interfere with sleep

We all know that there are some types of food and drink that just shouldn't be consumed before bedtime. Caffeine, sugar and alcohol are all commonly listed as substances that are known to affect our REM sleep. Cheese, on the other hand, has a reputation for causing unusual dreams, and isn't typically listed among the main culprits of consumables that can cause sleep deprivation. However, as an American doctor explains in the Arizona Daily Sun, certain types of cheese may prove to be more of an...

Working through the urge to sleep on night shifts

Last week, a study unveiled the damage that can be done on a molecular level by working night shifts. Whilst for many, working the night shift may not be desirable, it is essential – sometimes, increased rates of pay can make the world of difference and it's just something that has to be done. The work needs doing, but there are some helpful (and sometimes candid) hints and tricks in a BBC Magazine article that was released after the aforementioned study findings were released. Starting ...

Baby massage could be the key to sleep!

Finding a bedtime routine that suits your baby in their early years is definitely something of a learning curve. There are some natural ways that can help relax your child though, as Sara Campbell writes on Yahoo Lifestyle. She tells the story of her son as a baby, and that he used to have skin cream rubbed in after baths because of his dry, cracked skin. She noticed that this made him relax and even seem drowsy. From here, she learnt more about baby massage, and has cultivated a massage routi...

Teenagers need later school starts

The average teenager needs between eight and nine hours of sleep a night. However, the distractions of the modern world mean that teens' bedtimes are creeping later and later – not a good remedy for early starts the following morning – to the point where sleep deprivation in young adults is at an all-time high. Many American high schools begin their day at eight in the morning, or sometimes even earlier – but a new study has shown that an early morning start may not be conducive to their a...

Study links night-shift work to sleep-health chaos

When the majority of us tuck ourselves up in bed on an evening, it's easy to forget about the army of night-time workers that are only just beginning their working day. Without them, hospitals, roads, emergency services and many other unnoticed-until-you-need-them services would just come to a standstill, resulting in bedlam the next day when the regular nine 'till five workers awake. Working the night shift is rarely something that's looked forward to, and now there's another reason why se...
