2. Fight Insomnia
More than 30-million Americans suffer from a chronic sleep disorder, such as insomnia or apnea. People who don’t get the required amount of sleep each night begin to experience the effects of sleep deprivation. Most people can handle a few nights without sleep, but when we face extended periods without it, we risk developing all types of mental health disorders.
Patients with sleeping disorders typically have an underlying health issue causing the problem. People suffering from the effects of apnea may be obese and need to lose weight. Those individuals with insomnia may be dealing with a hormone imbalance that’s causing their symptoms.
It’s best to visit a medical practitioner and get a diagnosis for your condition from a professional. Depending on the extent of the severity of your symptoms, your doctor may issue prescription-strength medication, such as Ambien, to help you sleep.
If your symptoms are mild, they may recommend you try herbal remedies or OTC medications to help you get to sleep. Chamomile tea has a sedative and relaxing effect on the body that can help you drift off to sleep.
