Headaches are usually pretty annoying, so people believe that a pill is a quickest and most effective way to relieve the pain. This can be true, but sometimes a pill just doesn’t want to work. In almost all cases, natural remedies are the best way...

woman sleeping It is becoming a known fact that at sometime in your life you will struggle with sleep deprivation. If you go for long periods without adequate sleep you become less productive and experience more stress in your lives. Most of us need at least eight hours of sleep a night. Sleep is vital for our health and well-being. The three areas that affect our sleep are:

  • Pain
  • Psychological stressors
  • Aging

 

You can get our sleep under control once you have the information on what may be causing the lack of sleep.

Pain is a number one cause of lack of sleep. When pain is a chronic situation that you have to deal with even in waking hours; then it is time to get some medical help for it. Your doctor may even suggest you go to a pain management clinic. You may even have to take a sleeping aid, but will be forewarned that sleeping pills can be addictive. Other medical conditions can affect your sleep such as acid reflux, restless leg syndrome or sleep apnea. Let your doctor know if you suffer from these conditions. They can be treated.

Psychological stress is very common and plays havoc with our minds. Sometimes you can lie in bed all night, dealing with your racing thoughts. You find yourself going over and over a given situation. One way to counter this is to develop a meditation practice that simply observes the thoughts going by like sheep crossing a pasture. Simply observe the thought and letting it go. Meditation can be just as restful as sleep. Depression is also a leading cause for sleep deprivation.

Aging affects your sleep. The older you become the more your hormones change. Menopause can cause sleep issues. Hot flashes can wake you up in the middle of the night; making it difficult to go back to sleep. Men with prostate issues may be up several times in the night, which interferes with sleep patterns.

Some of the things you should avoid if you want a good night of sleep are avoiding alcohol. Taking a drink before going to bed interferes with your sleep. You may fall asleep only to wake up a couple hours later. Exercising should be avoided at least three hours before going to bed so your body is relaxed. Avoid watching television before you go to sleep. Also, avoid going to bed angry. Drinking a cup of chamomile tea before bed can help relax you.

Your bedroom needs to be a sanctuary where your body, mind and spirit can relax. Lighting plays an important factor in a good night’s sleep. Make sure the draperies or blinds on your windows are closed tightly. Even a night light could interfere with sleep. Eliminate any clutter in the room and keep furnishings simple. Don’t take your cell phone to bed. Also, have a good mattress.

Changing your sleeping habits is the key to having a good night’s sleep and pleasant dreams.

Headaches are usually pretty annoying, so people believe that a pill is a quickest and most effective way to relieve the pain. This can be true, but sometimes a pill just doesn’t want to work. In almost all cases, natural remedies are the best way to go anyways. Natural remedies can fully heal your headache in 5-10 minutes! If you don’t believe it, you should try these headache remedies next time you have a headache, instead of taking a pill.

1. Aromatherapy. This is becoming an increasingly popular remedy. A lot of people would never believe that something as simple as a scent could take away your pains. Before knocking it, why not try it? Sandalwood, peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender, and many other natural oils can reduce, or even fully take your pain away! These scents can be found in oils, candles, and soaps.

2. A Large Glass of Water. This remedy is underestimated because of how incredibly simple it is. One of the many reasons for headaches is dehydration. For this reason, a quick, cool glass of water may be all that is required for your headache to be cured.

3. Hot Shower. Stand in the shower and let the hot water hit your head and run down your neck and back. Doing so will loosen the muscles in your head and neck, allowing better blood flow. While in the shower, you could also try some of that aromatherapy soap, mentioned in the first step.

4. Deep Massage. A firm massage on the head, face and neck can quickly get rid of headache pain. This is one of the many overlooked methods of headache relief.

5. Diet. Do certain foods give you headaches? If so it is time to drop them from your diet. If you get frequent headaches you should start to watch what you eat closely to see what foods may be giving you these problems. If necessary, you may want to keep a food diary.

6. Pressure Points. Using pressure points is one of the most underestimated remedies for headaches, probably because of how farfetched it seems. Don’t judge it until you try it! Find where the bones of your thumb and index finger meet. Apply pressure to this spot for a couple of minutes, if you’re doing it right, you should begin to feel your headache going away!

7. Relaxing and Resting. Sometimes when you get a headache, it’s just your body telling you you’re working too hard. Lay down in a dark, quiet room and just take rest. When you start to feel better, you can get up and get back to your life, just try to do some things that are a little less stressful and enjoy yourself more.

8. Ice Pack. You don’t have to use an ice pack, anything really cold will work fine. Put a cold item on where ever the pain is, allow it to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. This will reduce any inflammation and probably numb the pain.

9. Exercise. This one may not be as easy as some of the others, given that moving while in a lot of pain is not always Ideal. Regardless, you should try to do this during, and after the headache. Exercising increases blood flow and circulation throughout the body. This will bring more blood and oxygen to your brain. Exercising regularly will prevent headaches from returning.

10. Calcium Supplement. If you are without supplements, a tall glass of orange juice will help. Experts recommend taking a supplement that contains both calcium and magnesium for maximum headache relief. Calcium supplements will increase blood flow and help relax your muscles, this helps to take some of the pain away.
