Too much work? Or not doing enough?? You may have INSOMNIA
FACTS ABOUT SLEEP:
Most people have trouble sleeping every now and then
People can generally do well for a short period of time if deprived of sleep
Transient Insomnia is often related to emotional or physical issues
Drinking alcohol before sleeping can decrease sleep quality — as a depressant, it will help you to sleep. When it wears off in a few hours, however, the body has a rebound stimulant effect whose results are very active dreams and a poor night’s sleep
The best start to a day is a good night’s sleep
TIPS FOR A BETTER NIGHT’S SLEEP:
Habit helps sleep — establish a bedtime and waking up time, and stick to them
Avoid too many naps during the day — get sleep at night!
Get regular exercise (there’s plenty of ways to do that here)
DO NOT use sleep medication regularly
Do boring or low-key activities before going to sleep — email, counting cows, etc.
If you’re suffering from insomnia due to physical or emotional grief, figure out what’s wrong and try to solve it as soon as possible — talk about it with friends, mentors, or the people at the Health Center
Don’t obsess over the number of hours of sleep you will or won’t get! Just sleep!
IF NONE OF THIS HELPS WITHIN A WEEK, CONTACT THE HEALTH CENTER
