How to Get Your Sleep Back

We as people need our goodnight sleep to function into this fast-paced world.
That is why I embarked in a quest to look at the numerous factors which causes insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and other sleep disorders.
If you are one of those people suffering from lack of sleep then what you should do is to combat these disorders and get your grove back.
Let us take a closer look at the following factors and find a suitable solution.
Stress - We all have this in our lives but extreme cases of stress can result to lack of sleep.
What you should do is to learn some basic breathing exercises, you can enroll to yoga classes or if you do not have enough time then buy a Yoga video and learn how to properly breathe.
Unease - Never underestimate the power of comfort when sleeping.
Make sure that you are comfortable before going to bed.
Remove all make up, take a shower and change into your pajama to set the mood.
Exercise - Lack of exercise is bad for your health in general so it is time to move that body and sleep like a baby.
A study by The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who regularly exercise have fewer episodes of sleeplessness than people who don't exercise.
This is due, in part, to the fact that exercise helps our bodies' transition between the phases of sleep more regularly and more smoothly.
Also, since exercise places physical stress on the body, the brain increases the amount of time we spend in deep sleep, the phase of sleep during which our bodies repair themselves.
Diet - Eating Spicy foods and drinking caffeine-induced drinks will keep you awake for hours, so instead opt for products that contain both Tryptophan and Calcium, which are ideal if you want to be relaxed and catch some sleep.
Below are some of the midnight snacks you may want to grab on your way to the bedroom: * Peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread with a glass of milk * Oatmeal raisin cookies and milk * An apple with cheese * A banana and a handful of almonds * A date/bran muffin with a glass of milk Of course you have to keep in mind that it's also important to eat your bedtime snack around 1 hour before you are planning to go to sleep.
Sleep Environment - This is often taken for granted but a silky sleepwear , soft pillows and a dim light can do wonders for your sleeping habits.
Farr West is one of the best brands available when it comes to sleepwear.
Many former sufferers of sleep disorder attest that the softness of the fabric helped them sleep better.
