If you're having trouble sleeping, you may know exactly what the problem is but just can't make it stop. It could be high anxiety, a new baby in the family, or jet-lag that knocks you off your schedule. Whatever the case, there are methods that will allow you to rest peacefully at night and get a healthy amount of rest your body needs.
When having trouble sleeping, a number of things can happen to your body. The first is your awareness. You might lose your ability to perform well at work, have poor decision making skills, and a very short temper. That's normal for anyone to experience when having trouble sleeping.
You may even notice some of your sense to start fading away. Your hearing and balance may be off, and you might have unusual headaches that don't really hurt but just put pressure on your forehead.
What you don't initially notice could be much worse. Not getting enough rest at night can cause weight gain, major health problems, high blood pressure and even increase the risk of heart attacks. Not getting enough sleep is even said to be as dangerous as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
It's a pattern that your body may be so used to by now that you've just learned to live with being at 50 percent all of the time. But by getting your full nights rest without interruption, you'll have more energy, increase your metabolism, and be more alert. There are very simple and straightforwards methods and solutions to getting the full rest you need, and it's probably not what you think.
