If you are experiencing difficulty sleeping, consider whether an event or particular stress could be the cause.
If so, the problem may resolve in time.
If not, and the problem persists for a few weeks or more, or if you experience distress and discomfort as a result of the insomnia, talk to your doctor about your symptoms.
Bring with you a record of your sleep, fatigue levels throughout the day, and any other symptoms you might be having.
Regardless of what's causing your sleep problems, it is important to establish and maintain healthy sleep habits.
Here are some tips that will help you sleep well:
..Use the bed and bedroom for sleep and sex only
..Establish a regular bedtime routine and a regular sleep-wake schedule
..Do not eat or drink too much close to bedtime
..Create a sleep-promoting environment that is dark, cool and comfortable
..Avoid disturbing noises – consider a bedside fan or white-noise machine to block out disturbing sounds
During the day:
..Consume less or no caffeine, particularly late in the day
..Avoid alcohol and nicotine, especially close to bedtime
..Exercise, but not within three hours before bedtime
..Avoid naps, particularly in the late afternoon or evening
..Keep a sleep diary to identify your sleep habits and patterns that you can share with your doctor
