The Gist of Me, Sleep, and Insomnia
It doesn’t take much other than personal experience to know that you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from (at the least, mild) insomnia…
If “Night Owl” comes to mind when describing your average nightly activities, then you might be like me. It’s been several years since I’ve had a “normal” full night’s sleep, and I have found that it has begun impacting different parts of my life.
- Energy to exercise and take care of myself to the best of my ability is drained.
- I’ve spent a lot of my free time (including weekends) resting from a sleepless work week.
- Getting up to properly get ready for work, making it to work on time, and my ability to work productively and efficiently, have all suffered due to my broken sleep cycle.
Although at first I didn’t mind being a night owl, after all it was allowing me to stay up later to get more things done, as soon it started affecting my daily life (for the worse), I knew I had to make a change.
Through my journey to bring balance back to my sleep cycle, I have tried many things, some have worked better than others, some haven’t worked at all, and some have really helped me return to a life of healthy sleep.
Here, on My Sleep Insomnia, I’ll be sharing what has helped, not helped, and really helped me “cure” my Insomnia. I hope you can learn from some of my experiences and findings to help get yourself back into a healthy cycle of a good night’s sleep and a productive day!
(Please note that I am no professional. Just someone who decided to take his health into his own hands and has done research on the topic. Hopefully I offer some help to your “sleep situation”.)
