INSOMNIA: WORRY MAKES IT WORSE; ..... A SIMPLE ROUTINE CAN CURE IT. I have trouble falling asleep, but I don't want to start taking sleeping pills. What else can I do? Not all people need the same amount of sleep. For instance, some healthy adults sleep three or four hours every night without apparent ill effects. Oth- ers may need 10 to 12 hours, or they'll feel tired the next day. A person has insomnia if his inability to sleep interferes chronically with his. efficient daytime functions, regardless of how many hours he sleeps each night. Surveys have shown that as many as 30 percent of Americans suffer from insomnia to some degree. Insomnia is not that difficult to cure- -it only gets worse the more you worry about it. You can help yourself fall asleep each night and wake up re- freshed the next morning by following a few simplesteps: First, rid yourself of stress before bedtime. Don't dwell on the day's .,in- solved problems. Don't say "I sLould have done that." Instead, think "I could have done that, and I will soon." Regular daily exercise, such as jog- ging, swimming, tennis or brisk walk- ing, will help you sleep better at night. But occasional, one-shot exercise does not directly influence sleep that night. Some quiet exercises before bedtime can help you fall asleep more easily. To help yourself relax, lie down on the floor or sofa and relax your body, one part at a time. Breathe from your abdo- men, a.;d as you inhale, feel the breath seeping into all parts of your body, gen- tly massaging all the places that are tired and sore. Now, keep breathing this way and concentrate on the rhythm of your inhales and exhales. You will find yourself slowly relaxing, getting ready for a good night's sleep. Establish a definite bedtime routine for yourself, and use your bedroom for sleeping and sex. Don't use it for work- ing, studying or watching television. You should think of your bedroom as a quiet, restful place for sleep. Avoid. taking naps during the day. Plan to go to bed at the same time every night, and get up at the same time every morning. This is all part of a healthy bedtime routine. Don't sleep more than you need to feel refreshed, be- cause excessively long periods in bed seem to be related to fragmented and shallow sleep. A heavy meal close to bedtime may keep you awake. However, a light bedtime snack, like a glass of warm milk or a bowl of cereal and milk, seems to help some people sleep. Drinking such caffeine-con- taining beverages as tea, coffee, chocolate and cola drinks, in the eve- ning disturbs sleep, even in those people who like to think it doesn't. There is no evidence that an execs- sively cold room helps you sleep more soundly, but studies have shown that a warm room, above 75 Fahrenheit, can keep a person awake or cause fitful sleep. Noise also can disrupt sleep. If this is a problem, you might consider wearing ear- plugs. If you climb into bed and can't fall asleep, it means that your body is not ready to sleep. So instead of worry- ing, turn on the light and read. And relax: Worry will only keep you awake. If insomnia continues to be a per- sistent problem after you have tried all the above suggestions, it may mean that something more than the current situation is disturbing your sleep. In this case, you may consider seeking professional help. Sleep medication is rarely of any use other than on a temporary basis, and if used on a long-term basis it usually becomes an additional problem. ,, '!
