Dear Lybrateuser, - Try to include some physical activity in your daily schedule like walking, yoga or cycling even for 15-20 min as unless the mind & body both are tired restful sleep may not be there - avoid watching a gadget screen for 1-2 hrs before sleep time - take a warm water bath & a cup of milk before sleep - read or listen to light music instead of watching TV at night - avoid tea, coffee after 3 o'clock in the afternoon as it may make it difficult to get to sleep - avoid alcohol & smoking if you do - take a light dinner at night at least 2-3 hrs before sleep time.

Loosing weight is not an easy task. You have to maintain strict energy intake and calorie burn chart. Some medicine do have fantastic result without harming.

Need for Sleep!!

Need for Sleep!!

Sleep helps in restoring brain chemicals and provides rest to the body. Some studies have found that the brain organizes and stores memories during sleep. Lack of sleep can affect our daytime functioning, hormonal balance, appetite, and immune system.

A severe sleep deficit can have the following negative effects:

  • Weight gain (or a reduced ability to lose weight): This appears to occur via changes in hormone levels specifically a decrease in serum leptin (a hormone which causes satiety) and an increase in serum ghrelin (a hormone which causes hunger
  • Chronic severe fatigue and Decreased productivity: The person feels low on energy and does not feel like working,
  • Irritability: the mood is also disturbed and the person may feel sad and irritable.
  • Decreased ability to concentrate and Impaired short-term memory
  • Depression. Interestingly, depression can cause fatigue, can be caused by fatigue and can be confused with fatigue.

Causes of sleeping difficulties:

  1. Stress is the number one cause of short-term sleeping difficulties, according to sleep experts. Common triggers include school- or job-related pressures, a family or marriage problem and a serious illness or death in the family.
  2. Drinking alcohol or beverages containing caffeine in the afternoon or evening, exercising close to bedtime, following an irregular morning and nighttime schedule, and working or doing other mentally intense activities right before or after getting into bed can disrupt sleep.
  3. Traveling also disrupts sleep, especially jet lag and travelling across several time zones. This can upset your biological or “circadian” rhythms.
  4. Environmental factors such as a room that's too hot or cold, too noisy or too brightly lit can be a barrier to sound sleep.
  5. Interruptions from children or other family members can also disrupt sleep. 

There are techniques to combat common sleep problems:

  • Keep a regular sleep/wake schedule
  • Don’t drink or eat caffeine four to six hours before bed and minimize the daytime use
  • Don’t smoke, especially near bedtime or if you awake in the night
  • Avoid alcohol and heavy meals before sleep
  • Get regular exercise
  • Minimize noise, light and excessively hot and cold temperatures where you sleep
  • Develop a regular bedtime and go to bed at the same time each night
  • Try and wake up without an alarm clock
  • Attempt to go to bed earlier every night for certain period; this will ensure that you’re getting enough sleep

Lifestyle changes often help improve sleep for people with short-term insomnia. These include avoiding caffeine and other stimulants, going to bed and waking up around the same time every day, and avoiding heavy meals, exercise and bright lights before bedtime,
