नींद का महत्व - Importance Of Sleep!

नींद सभी जीवों के लिए ईश्वर के वरदान की तरह है. क्योंकि यदि हम पर्याप्त नींद लें तो कई अनावश्यक बीमारियों से तो हम यू हीं बच जाते हैं. इसके साथ ही हमारे शरीर को मिलने वाले आराम के कारण इसकी कार्यक्षमता में भी वृद्धि होती है. यदि आप नींद का महत्व नहीं समझते हैं और पर्याप्त नींद नहीं लेते हैं तो आपको मानसिक अवसाद जैसी बीमारियों का सामना करना पड़ सकता है. इसे आप डिप्रेशन, तनावया चिंता में डूबा रहना भी कह सकते हैं. ये तो आपने भी महसूस किया ही होगा कि यदि आप एक दिन न सोएँ तो किस तरह से शरीर लचर होने लगता है. इसलिए नींद के महत्व को समझते हुए हमें इसके विभिन्न पहलुओं को ठीक से जानना चाहिए. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हमलोग नींद के महत्व को विस्तारपूर्वक समझें ताकि कई अनावश्यक परेशानियों से बचा जा सके.

1. नींद की कमी बिमारी का घर-
यदि आप सोने में कोताही करते हैं या पर्याप्त नींद नहीं लेते हैं तो आप कई बीमारियों को आमंत्रित कर रहे हैं. कहते हैं न कि चैन से सोना है तो जाग जाइए. जब आपकी नींद पूरी नहीं होती है तो आपको कई बीमारियाँ जैसे कि याद्दाश्त कमजोर होना, उच्च रक्तचाप, आँखों में सुजन, कमजोरी, थकान, मोटापा, तनाव आदि अपना शिकार बना सकती हैं. बेहतर यही है कि आप भरपूर नींद लेने को गंभीरता से लें और पर्याप्त नींद लें. यदि आप विभिन्न बीमारियों का आसान शिकार नहीं बनना चाहते हैं तो आपको नींद के महत्व को नजरंदाज नहीं करना चाहिए.

2. बच्चों में नींद की कमी का असर और अवसाद-
किशोरों या बच्चों की मानसिकता पर पर्याप्त नींद न लेने का दुष्प्रभाव उनके आत्मविश्वास पर पड़ता है. अक्सर ऐसा देखा गया है कि आठ घंटे से कम नींद लेने वाले किशोर नशे या स्मोकिंग की चपेट में होते हैं. कई बच्चे इसके दुष्प्रभाव से डिप्रेशन में भी चले जाते हैं. ऐसा होने पर कई बार बच्चे उग्र भी हो जाते हैं. एक शोध में यह पाया गया कि प्रतिदिन 7 से 8 घंटे की नींद लेने वाले 4.5 घंटे से कम सोने वालों की तुलना में लम्बी उम्र जीते हैं. तो बच्चों को भी पर्याप्त सुलाएं. बच्चों के नींद पर तो और भी ध्यान देना आवश्यक है क्योंकि बच्चे बोल नहीं सकते. कई ऐसी क्रियाएँ हैं जो बच्चों में पर्याप्त नींद के बिना नहीं हो सकती हैं. इसलिए खुद समय पर सोने के साथ ही बच्चों को भी सुलाना आवश्यक है.

3. नींद और वजन का संबंध-
शोधकर्ताओं के अनुसार कम सोने वाले लोगों का वजन पर्याप्त नींद लेने वालों से ज्यादा होता है. ये भी पाया गया है कि पांच घंटे की नींद लेने वाले लोगों में भूख बढ़ाने वाला हार्मोन 15 फीसदी अधिक बनता है. लेकिन आठ घंटे की नींद लेने वाले लोगों में यह हार्मोन जरूरत के अनुसार ही बनता है. जाहिर है इससे आप मोटापे के शिकार होते हैं और अवसाद की तरफ बढ़ चलते हैं. तो यदि आप पतला होना चाहते हैं या मोटापा कम करना चाहते हैं तो आपको भी आज से ही पर्याप्त नींद लेना शुरू कर देना चाहिए.

4. अवसाद, नींद और सेहत-
ये तो आपने भी महसूस किया ही होगा कि जब आप गहरी नींद से सोकर उठते हैं तो आपको एक ताजगी का एहसास होता है. और पर्याप्त नींद न लेने पर दिमाग भन्नाया रहता है. दरअसल पर्याप्त नींद लेने पर हमारे शारीर में रोगों से लड़ने वाली कोशिकाएं भी ठीक तरीके से काम करती हैं. जिससे कि आप कई अनावश्यक बीमारियों से तो बचते ही हैं साथ में आपकी कार्यक्षमता में भी बढ़ोतरी होती है. इसलिए ये बेहद आवश्यक है कि नींद के महत्व को समझें और इसके लिए आवश्यक कदम उठाएँ ताकि आपका सेहत हमेशा ठीक रहे.

Hypersomnia - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment!

Hypersomnia - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment!

Sleep is known to most as a period of rest and relaxation, but there are multiple disorders which are associated with sleep too. Hypersomnolence or hypersomnia is one of the most common sleep disordersThis is characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and prolonged periods of sleep at night. They wake up fresh in the morning, but can easily go back to sleep any time of the day without feeling strained or tired. There is again no freshness associated upon waking up. Funny as it may sound, they can doze off even during a meal or in the middle of a conversation.

Causes: This condition is most common in men and in the early adolescent days.

  1. There is no underlying cause that has been identified, though there is a genetic predisposition.
  2. People with history of head trauma are more affected
  3. People with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, epilepsy, and other mental disorders are also more likely to be affected
  4. People with sleep apnea often are hypersomnolence
  5. Restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy
  6. Neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s tend to sleep more.

Symptoms:

  1. Sleeping for longer hours at night time
  2. Excessively sleepy during daytime
  3. Able to doze off anytime during the day
  4. Inappropriate and involuntary sleeping pattern
  5. Having difficulty getting out of bed after waking up, even after prolonged sleep
  6. Feeling of disorientation
  7. Feeling agitated, anxious, lethargic, and irritated
  8. Impaired cognition and memory
  9. All these lead to extreme state of drowsiness
  10. Increased tendency for hallucinations
  11. Reduced appetite and even weight loss in some people
  12. There is restlessness, reduced pace of thinking and speaking
  13. Overall reduced energy levels
  14. Social interactions are affected including work life, social functions, etc.

Diagnostic criteria:

  1. If a person happens to sleep more at night or falls asleep during the day easily for more than 3 times a week, it is usually concerning.
  2. The added feature of no tiring physical activity can also lead to suspicion
  3. In acute cases, these symptoms are present for at least a month and in chronic cases, it could be seen for up to 3 months
  4. It cannot be explained by lack of sleep on a regular basis
  5. One or more of the above conditions could be present, which can help in making the diagnosis

Treatment:
Most cases of hypersomnia would need treatment only to improve their energy levels and improve the quality of life. Very often, treating the underlying condition can lead to improvement of hypersomnia. The tired, lethargic, restless feeling affects the overall performance of a person, leaving them with a lowered self-esteem. Brain stimulating drugs like amphetamines are used to improve daytime alertness and also reduce sleepy feeling during the day.

Natural Ways To Help You Manage Your Sleep!

Natural Ways To Help You Manage Your Sleep!

If you suffer from sleeplessness or disrupted sleep at night, you should consider undertaking Ayurvedic measures to deal with the problem. The principle of Ayurveda states that proper sleep is a very important part of maintaining a good health, and any compromise with it could lead to complications.

There are several Ayurvedic principles that you can adopt in order to improve your sleep. They are as follows:

Maintain a disciplined sleep schedule

  • It is important for you to be disciplined regarding your sleep.
  • Your mind remains dull and slow from 6 pm to 10pm. This is an ideal time for sleeping.
  • You should sleep early, which will enable you to sleep well throughout the night, and wake up early the next morning.

Mindful eating

  • Try having dinner by 7 pm. Your digestive system cools down as the sun begins to set.
  • Having an early meal allows proper digestion, which is important for positive sleep.
  • While eating any meal, you should not concentrate on any other thing except for food.

Oil massage

  • Oil massage therapy, especially a massage on your feet with herbal oils, is an effective Ayurvedic remedy to improve sleep.
  • There are several nerve endings in your feet, which are nourished during such an oil massage.
  • Massaging relieves stress, improves your blood circulation, makes you calm and relaxed, and lets you sleep at length.

Pranayama

  • This is another important Ayurvedic way of improving your sleep.
  • You need to practice several rounds of Nadi Shodhana Pranayama on a regular basis, which involves alternate nostril breathing.
  • This method helps in calming down your nervous system, soothes your mind, and thus results in a deeper and better sleep.

Practice self-compassion

  • Ayurvedic principles state that your wellness and health depend on a proper balance between your mind, body, and soul.
  • While some people make us feel positive, other people drain us emotionally, leaving us cranky and annoyed.
  • You should be mindful over whom and about what you interact with before going to sleep. Always try to stay in a positive environment away from any negative factors.
  • Abstain from engrossing on social media activity, watching television, or browsing on your cell phone two hours before going to bed.

It is also necessary for you to work out on a regular basis and keep physically fit and healthy. A healthy body ensures a healthy mind, which in turn, is important for improved sleep. Avoid having coffee or any form of stimulant after 3 pm in the afternoon.

Is it indication of something indicating towards severe complications or is it normal. My height is 5'8" and weight is 88 kgs. Lately i've started doing physical exercises and also brisk walking for 30 minutes. I also feel tingling sensations in my left hand, palm and fingers in intervals. I'm not able to sleep properly, and feel on low energy throughout the day.

Feeling of light headedness after cough is an indication of cough syncope. Usually an indication of long term respiratory disease. I suggest you antiallergic drugs like levocetrizine for cough. Also to wear a mask to prevent allergic episodes. Stress could be the trigger factor for light headedness. So make sure to deal with it. Do not be hasty .be calm. If possible do breating exercises in morning. Your tingling could be due to cervival spondyltis. So make sure to do an x ray neck n consult an orthopedics. Also repeat your thyroid profile n serum testosterone for low energy level.

Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which a person finds it difficult to fall asleep or to stay asleep. Insomnia also includes poor sleep quality, restless sleep, waking up several times during sleep, and feeling un-refreshed or tired after waking up.  Homeopathy provides a very safe, effective and non-habit forming treatment of both types of insomnia — acute and chronic. Since the Homeopathic medicines are sourced from natural substances, there are no side-effects. While Insomnia lasting less than a month is considered acute, if the condition continues for more than a month, it is referred to as chronic Insomnia. There are various causes of Insomnia. The prominent ones are stress, grief, depression, emotional disturbance, intake of stimulants like coffee and alcohol, and a huge number of medical reasons (like heart diseases, breathing disorders, thyroid problems, and rheumatoid arthritis). Insomnia is also one of the major concerns in elderly people.

I can't wake up on my own and I have excessive daytime sleepiness even when I sleep 10+ hours a night. If I try to take a nap, I can not seem to wake up for at least 3 hours, and even then I need assistance. I took a multiple sleep latency test, but because I also have intense anxiety, the test did not reflect my normal behavior. every time I began to fall asleep, I was jolted awake with a panic attack, but at the same time I could barely keep my eyes open between naps. The sleep doctor said he couldn't diagnose me with anything because I didn't show enough sleepiness. But how could I possibly sleep like I normally would if I am having a panic attack? I am wondering if there are any alternatives for diagnosing a sleep disorder that would be in less stressful environment so as to not trigger my anxiety. I have been taking vyvance which helps me stay awake most of the day, but I still find myself falling asleep at inappropriate times. The drug is also expensive. I am also on lexapro for anxiety, depression, and ocd- but I do not think that it is making me sleepy. I have had a blood test to eliminate thyroid, immune, and hormonal problems and limes disease and mono.
