Nine Methods for Sleep and Weight Loss
The following nine methods are used by psychologists to help clients increase sleep and reduce stress symptoms.
- Fix a problem like heavy snoring, sleep pneumonia (stop breathing for a few seconds at a time), restless legs, dental or medical problems, such as heartburn or frequent bathroom, encourages you to wake you up. Sign in with your local area for detailed food. If you know you have one of these conditions, get treatment!
- Sleep regularly and do not go to sleep sooner. Go to normal time. Check the minimum amount of eye-catching time that you must have minimal activity the next day and try to have so much time in bed. Forcing yourself to stay until you start to sleep and get up early no matter how tired you are. After a few days, you will probably sleep better at this time in bed.
- Make bed for sleeping or sex only. No bill paid, mystery of reading, TV shows or concerns. If you can not sleep, say twenty minutes, get up and do a quiet act like reading a boring book until you're sleepy.
- Keep your pet out of your bed. Especially big! If you are a little starving, what are you adding to the stress factors of sleep time?
- Keep the bedroom dark. If you can eliminate all light sources, including glow in the dark, research shows that you have a better chance of sleeping quietly. Blackout curtains will help.
- Try fan or "white noise engine" to figure out what background sounds. Stable or tactical noise often helps to wake you to sleep and help you sleep.
- Make a regular free form or magazine. Develop a habit of writing for half an hour just before bedtime, to worry and worry about the head of paper. If you write "free form" – quickly and without punctuation, spelling or grammar – you still get these stressful thoughts from unconscious and sometimes unconscious minds. Do not review what you wrote. Rip the pages and burn them safely to mark you release them. If you write a journal, your process may be thoughtful. You can work through various stress-related concerns, sometimes with insights or solutions as you write. Look back on your journal entries in a few weeks and surprise you with even more new awareness to reduce stress.
- Create a book to relax before bedtime. For some, it's a hot bath or a cup of herbal tea or hot milk. For others, reading a few pages of a quiet, even dull book is useful. Adaptation process can also be a direct helpful as a consistent antidote to stress.
- Monitor your sleep patterns and stress steps in a journal or monitor a menu, such as Excel spreadsheet. Every morning, before you get busy today, check your time to sleep and time to get up and sleep time. Check what you did the night before to relax, and something particularly stressful or worrisome during the day. Describe the quality of sleep and special conditions. You have better goals to measure progress. You can notice what methods worked best for you to increase sleep and reduce stress.
