I am sure everyone who is reading this article has been a victim of Daytime sleep and have experienced this at work and few might have gone through embarrassment. I.e. especially your boss is watching you sleep at work. This happens and I have seen many people do this, so here are quick tips to make sure that you don’t fall into this category. It’s simple and one has to follow this as a daily routine and eventually, daytime sleeping would be a myth.
Reasons for Day Time Sleep:
Well, it varies from person to person based on their lifestyle, work habits and their lack of standard sleeping patterns. This might be a silly problem to look at but it has lots of adverse effects on your health and ultimately makes you sick in different ways.
What is Hypersomnia?
An individual with Hypersomnia can fall asleep at any point of the time, i.e. either it may be at work or driving back home etc. Individuals with this symptoms have trouble being awake during daytime.
Causes of Hypersomnia:
- Lack of sleep can be for different reasons, here are few important ones that one has to take care:
- Sleep apnea (i.e. having breathing problems, interruptions in breathing)
- Sleep deprivation (individual doesn’t get enough sleep)
- Overweight (plays an important role in terms of overall health maintenance)
- Genetics (anyone from the family already has Hypersomnia)
Get a good night sleep:
I am sure most of us tend to be awake little early in the morning or stay back late for a couple of hours to finish of personal works but an adult needs to rest for about 7 hours minimum to a maximum of 9 hours. This will allow your body to heal overnight and gives you enough energy to start your next day routines.
Keep distractions out of your bed:
Most of us tend to use our phones and laptops while we are about to sleep. Watching movies or doing your household accounting while sleeping is a big no because it will leave you sleepless and makes you wide awake. Make sure you have a calm mind and go to bed.
Standard Bed Time:
One has to introduce standard bedtime sleeping patterns and have to follow this strictly during the weekends as well. This will help you to maintain standard sleeping patterns and one doesn’t have to work hard to go to bed.
Consistent Meal times:
Maintaining consistent meal times will help you to maintain healthy tummy (i.e. digestive system). If you are eating late then you will end up having a bloated stomach which ultimately affects your sleeping time. Make sure you follow standard meal times and quantity of food that is consumed.
This is very vital for your body because exercise will ease out all harmful toxins in your body and stretches your muscles. This will ultimately help an individual to slowly fall in sleep without any efforts and results in sound sleep. Also, this will help you to reduce the stress levels within an individual (Tips to Reduce Stress)
Master your prioritization skills:
This is one of those skills which is highly appreciated in the fast moving work environment. Prioritizing tasks will help you complete your tasks on time and also won’t affect your sleeping patterns and also helps you understand what is pending vs what is completed. Based on the list the individual can plan it accordingly during the course of the day.
Don’t go to bed until you’re sleepy:
One has to understand the difference between being tired vs being sleepy. If you are tired then involve yourself in quick bath or have a massage which will release excess stress from your body. If you are sleepy, i.e. drowsy eyes, then it is ideal to hit the sack.
Having a couple of drinks before bedtime is not at all advisable for adults because it might actually lead up to several drinks and it goes on. This will lead to dehydration and headaches where an individual loses his sleep again.
Consult a Specialist:
If you are having serious sleeping disorder problems then we would suggest you visit a doctor to take an expert opinion and follow on with the medication that they provide.
