Insomnia/sleeplessness is a sleep disorder where you find it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep. Certain medication, pain, injury, stress, anxiety, noise, Thyroid hormonal imbalance, Alzheimer's disease, asthma, heart disease and depression can cause insomnia. Insomnia becomes a more common condition with aging.
Insomnia cure can be achieved by changing sleep habits, sticking to a proper sleep schedule, limiting caffeine and alcohol use, addressing issues such as stress or other medical conditions, regular exercise and medication, if required. Caregivers must ensure that the bedroom of their loved ones are kept quiet, dark, and cool to help restore their peaceful sleep. Creating a bedtime routine and maintaining a sleep diary can also help in insomnia management. Use of sleeping aids like a sleep mask and earplugs can help you to fall asleep. Listening to soothing music or practising sleep meditation techniques before bed is also known to be helpful in dealing with insomnia.
