Difficulty Sleeping Health Feed

I sleep very less every night @3.5 to 4 hours max. Feel so tired in the mornings. I smoke about 12 cigarettes a day. Sometimes, there is a light pain on my chest but it goes away in 2 mins. I have put on weight as well due to excessive junk food. Is there any signs of health risk?

I've asked a question related to my mental health and answers from the doctors seems like I am on my initial stages of depression due to heart break. It was just a 4 month relationship but I don't understand how can get so attached to my ex just in months, maybe because we were best friends from past 5 years. The thing is I didn't get any closure. He thinks something else about me, I think something else about him ,and actual thing is something else. There are so many misunderstanding between us. I tried to contact him n no. Of times but he didn't answered any of my calls. From past two months I think I am experiencing anxiety, being totally lost minded, not willing to do anything, headache, dizziness or blackouts, feeling heaviness in chest, sometimes experiencing insomnia or feeling sleepy all day. That pain is draining me inside, many times I want to cry but tears don't come out of my eyes and this makes me feel like I'm crying from inside. And the most difficult thing for me is to pretend that everything is fine but the reality is that nothing is fine inside me. I miss him alot we use to share such a great bond when we were besties and he use to love me so much when we became lovers I just don't know what suddenly happened that ruined everything between us. I am unable to concentrate on anything. And now I am just done with this pain. I want to just get out of this phase. please suggest me something helpful and let me know what I am going through.

Hi lybrate-user, I'am sorry to hear that you're going through a phase where you're struggling to get back to your original phase. It's clear that you're going through a heart ache. It seems you're still finding the reason behind your break up. Since the concerned person is not reverting anyway means he doesn't want to connect with you in anyway. You need to Accept this fact and try to move on in life. Make sure you eat well. Drink lots of water. Your body needs energy to withstand the struggle your mind is going through. Don't sit idle, keep yourself engaged with some or the other activities. Any kind of sports/dance/drawing/painting would help. You can also consult me or any other counsellor wherein the deeper issues can get resolved and help you come out of this phase smoothly as its already been 2 months. Therapy is highly recommended. Take care. Lots of Peace and Happiness to you!

Exercise regularly. Exercise is a natural and effective anti-anxiety treatment that helps to control OCD symptoms by refocusing your mind when obsessive thoughts and compulsions arise. For maximum benefit, try to get 30 minutes or more of aerobic activity on most days.

If getting quality sleep is something that you may not be experiencing regularly, you need to take steps to correct it. Sleep improves your health and revitalizes your body allowing your body to be refreshed and energetic.

  1. Limit caffeine intake: Drinking too much coffee stimulates the body making you energized and thus hampering your ability to fall asleep. Aim to avoid coffee at least 5-6 hours before you go to sleep.

How Does Browsing On Phone Before Sleep Affect Your Health?

How Does Browsing On Phone Before Sleep Affect Your Health?

Browsing on the phone before you sleep can potentially cause serious damage to your health. According to studies the side effects can be far reaching and detrimental for your overall health. It can disrupt your sleep and contributes to several complications like heart diseases, obesity, etc.

Following are the bad effects of browsing on the phone before bed:

  1. Browsing on the phone till late in the night affects your sleeping pattern and deprives your body from the rest it requires. Loss and lack of sleep significantly contributes to various health problems like poor sleep, depressionstroke, cardiovascular problems, obesity etc.
  2. Staring at a bright screen for a long time before sleeping can slow down the activity of neurons that make you sleepy, thereby, keeping you in a state of wakefulness. Staring at artificial lights suppresses melatonin, the sleep hormone, which affects the sleep wake cycle of your body.
  3. Browsing on the phone before sleep also takes a toll on your eyes. It can cause serious damage to your eyes if you make a habit out of it. You can see visible signs if you wake up with dark circles in the morning and feel tired and lousy. Looking at brightly lit screen for a long time especially in the dark puts a lot of strain in your eyes and also affects mental health.
  4. Browsing on the phone till late in the night will make it difficult for you to wake up on time. The light on your cell phone affects your sleep, which can even trigger insomnia. Lack of sleep affects your alertness and concentration level and makes you feel drowsy and exhausted.
