Plenty of good sleep 5

Clocking some uninterrupted Z's (6 to 8 hours worth is one figure I've heard) is one step towards good health.

Plenty of good sleep 5

I've had trouble sleeping ever since I went to Europe in the early 80's and often stayed awake for 2 or 3 days at a time. Since then, I've suffered on and off from insomnia. It's gotten somewhat better as I've gotten older, but even on a good night, I tend to sleep only 5 or 6 hours. I awaken, and would like nothing more than to continue sleeping, but if I remain in bed, I end up getting a sick headache (migraine headaches have been my curse since I was a child). I'm currently attempting to wean myself off of Unisom...the pill works, but I've become way too dependent on it, and it leaves me feeling fuzzy the next morning. The other day, I was in upstate NY and became very sick (combination of a salmon and goat cheese sandwich, too much wine, and migraine headache). By the time I got home, I collapsed into bed and slept for approximately 10 hours. When I awoke the next morning, I felt wonderfully refreshed, renewed...and just plain good. If only I could achieve that every night. I truly do believe that sleep is God's medicine (or Buddha, or Krishna, or whomever you choose to believe in), both for the body and soul.

Getting enough sleep is indeed essential to good health.However,there's a lot of debate in the medical field as to just how much (and what kinds of) sleep is optimal.Some studies seemed to indicate that needs differ from one individual to another.There is also such a thing as getting TOO MUCH sleep (often ,but not always linked to depression).Many drugs (including alcohol) that are known to induce sleep actually interfere with the sleep cycle and deprive you of the most beneficial parts of slumber.Cutting down on stimulants (such as caffeine) and getting regular exercise are some natural ways to improve your nights rest.

Very needed and lacking in many peoples life. A few things that help me since I have been known to suffer insomnia at times. I have tried medication but would only use if desperate. Try not to watch televison or read in bed. That way you train your body to sleep when in bed. Meditation, message, light exercise 1 hour before bed, chamomile tea, melatonin, yes warm milk and what the heck add a cookie but nothing with chocolate since caffiene is an ingredient. Of course good sex helps before bed so if not so lucky than suffer one must.

Essential for health. Something people may not know... if you drink heavily or take sleeping pills, you can skip your REM period of sleep and go right to the deep sleep. This actually causes grumpiness. It's better to use meditation or biofeedback to help you with insomnia.
