Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty in starting sleep or maintaining sleep. As you know, a good duration of sleep between 7 to 8 hours each night.

Lack of sleep can increase the risk of various diseases. For those of you who have insomnia problems, here are strategies to relieve insomnia from doctor Timothy from the Mayo Clinic, as reported by the Self page.

 1. Make it a habit to sleep calmly and relaxed Establishing a sleep routine that is calm and also relaxing can help overcome insomnia. You can do this by drinking a caffeine-free cup of tea, taking a hot shower, or listening to soothing slow-tempo music. Also avoid using electronic devices for a long time before you sleep.

 2. Function the bedroom as it should Make the bedroom conducive to sleep. Adjust lighting, noise and comfortable air temperature so that it does not disturb your night's rest.

 Don't do other activities besides sleeping or making love in the bedroom. This method can help your body to find out the actual function of the bedroom.

 3. Hide the clock location As much as possible do not put the watch in a place that makes it easy for you to see it. Watching the clock can cause stress and make it difficult to go back to sleep after waking up at night.

 4. Avoid caffeine and alcohol Avoid drinking caffeine and alcohol at night. If you still want to drink alcohol before bed, at least limit to just one glass a few hours before bedtime. Caffeine and alcohol content can interfere with sleep.

 5. Exercise regularly Regular exercise can help you sleep soundly. But you must remember that exercising too close to bedtime can actually disrupt sleep.

6. Get up from bed If you can not sleep in about 20 minutes you should get out of bed and do other activities such as reading books until the drowsiness arises.

This can help you go back to sleep. If the condition persists, talk to your doctor to determine the cause and the right treatment for your insomnia problem. The doctor will prescribe medication and ask you to try other strategies to restore your disturbed sleep patterns
