Your Argument For Taking A Midday Nap

 SLEEP

Sleep trouble Man womanHere’s an argument for giving working adults “naptime” during the afternoon, similar to kindergarteners. While taking a two- to three-hour nap will often leave you feeling groggy and lazy, naps have their positive health benefits for adults — and a new study finds that taking a nap could actually counteract impulsive behavior and frustration.

Readers are then provided the crux of the Sleep Great method, which is an easy-to-follow procedure for overcoming various forms of sleep disorders.

Every night millions of people throughout the country suffer with insomnia. It may be difficulty falling asleep, constantly waking up in the middle of night with the inability to resume sleeping, restless sleep in general, or a combination of these difficulties.

Sleep deprivation can spiral out of a control, lasting for months or years while wreaking havoc on a person’s overall well-being and health. It doesn’t have to be that way.

“Sleep surveys indicate that fifty-eight percent of adults in the U.S. experience symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more,” explained Nilsen.  ” The impact of poor sleep results in numerous health and personal issues, including depression, increased blood pressure, irritability, difficulty concentrating, lack of desire, just to name a few.”

“The Sleep Great method teaches readers that they do not have to rely on sleeping pills to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis,” continued the author. “I suffered with debilitating insomnia and it wrecked my life. It pains me to see anyone else suffering with a sleep disorder because I know how difficult it can be, how it can affect one’s personal and work life, and the depression it can result. Insomnia is a vastly underrated health problem.”

The book, which is also sold in paperback for $12.97, is available exclusively in e-book format for the Kindle. Beginning Tuesday, June 25 and ending at Midnight on Thursday, June 27, the book “Sleep Great for Life” can be downloaded at no charge.

“I read this book a while back, but wanted to give it a chance to see how well it really worked before reviewing. As a family man that has a full-time job and freelances from home nightly, good sleep has always been an issue. I would go to bed exhausted from the day, but so wired I couldn’t keep my eyes shut. These techniques to achieve a restful night’s sleep really delivered! The concepts and plans are presented clearly without a lot of unnecessary filler making it a quick read. Also, knowing that the author had gone through some of my same sleep issues made it easy to relate with. Great book for a great night’s sleep.” — Donald Shofner, Lexington KY

Two Easy Tips for More Restful Sleep

by Rich Nilsen, author of “Sleep Great for Life” ebook

Do you sleep great?Do you often have trouble falling asleep? Do you suffer from insomnia one or more nights per week? There are many things you can do to significantly improve your chances for a better night’s sleep. Here are two easy tips that everyone can start applying right away.

USE TECHNOLOGY TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

Don’t want to miss that favorite television show that starts at 10:00 p.m.?  Well, that is what DVRs and VCRs are for. DVRs are wonderful in that you can set up a regular, scheduled taping every time your favorite show airs. You can also easily record the remainder of a show if you find yourself getting sleepy. Use modern technology to your advantage. Your sleep is too important.

WRITE DOWN YOUR PROBLEMS

I am a firm believer that by putting your thoughts to paper, it helps release them from your mind.  It allows you to wake up the next day and, at that time, begin to address the issue(s). Another benefit of doing this is that you will not lose that great idea that you just had while lying in bed!

Make sure you do not go to bed with your mind racing or with problems still pending.  Put them “to bed” for the night, and then you will be able to put yourself to bed – peacefully.

Are You Getting Enough Sleep

by Rich Nilsen,

If struggle with getting refreshing sleep on a regular basis, you are hardly alone. Approximately 70 million Americans regularly suffer from insomnia each year, and it is 1.4 times more common in women than men. On average fifty-eight percent of adults in the U.S. experience symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more.

Do you sleep great?Forty-four percent of U.S. adults are considered “problem sleepers.” About one-fifth of those in a clinical survey used drugs to counter-act insomnia at least once per week, and nearly 24 percent “depended” on sleep medication. Consumer Reports magazine found that 38 percent of those who had taken medication in the past month had been doing so for a minimum of two months. Who wants or needs that?

Consumer Reports also reported in their findings that the most common cause of insomnia was stress. Respondents worried about issues such as money, health, job security and family.

In 2001, 38 percent of adults were getting a minimum of eight hours sleep each night. Within only seven years this percentage had dropped to an alarming 26 percent. Ouch!

Just how many people are affected by sleep issues? A survey in February 2009 by the National Association of Home Builders, which included builders and architects, predicted that over 60 percent of custom-made houses would have dual master bedrooms by the year 2015. That is a sad state of affairs for America’s marriages.

It’s an epidemic in this country and around the world, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Sleep is so vital to our overall well being and health. How can we be productive on the job or at home with the family if we are not fully alert? We might be able to succeed in the short term, but sleep deprivation always catches up to the person suffering from sleepless nights.

The question to ask yourself is how many nights per week do you not get a sound sleep? How many nights per week do you struggle to fall asleep or wake up much sooner than you want? Do you awake in the middle of the night and can not fall back to sleep?

If your answer is more than one night than you are suffering from sleep deprivation. There are several steps you need to take to begin to right the ship. For starters, turn off your electronic leash – iPad, blackberry, laptop – at least 30 minutes prior to bedtime. This will be one of the hardest things to do for many people, so I figured I would throw this out there early.

We’ll dive more into the steps you need to take in next week’s blog installment. In the meantime, power down and get some rest!
