Are you struggling to get enough sleep at night? Countless people try and fail to get the sleep that their bodies require. However, those dealing with insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues plaguing sleep do have hope. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treated many patients in your situation before, and he is ready to help you next. When you get started on treatment, you may find that the solution is much easier to obtain than you had thought.

Last week, we started discussion of Psychology Today’s piece about unhelpful sleep beliefs. Today, we look at a few more thoughts that can disturb your rest.

  • Health – Many studies point to the negative health effects of insomnia, but it is unclear which process leads to which. In many cases, it very well may be other issues causing the insomnia in the first place. Obviously, insomnia isn’t good for us, but don’t magnify the process while trying to sleep.
  • Duration – You always hear about the elusive eight hours of sleep. However, adults are recommended to get 7-9 hours, and every single person is different. There are those who can do just fine on six hours a night.
  • Catching up – Some people fall into the temptation of trying to immediately catch up on lost sleep. But, this can be counterproductive when you end up laying in bed for a longer amount of time. Stick to your normal sleep schedule, and you will work it out.

When you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, all of life’s tasks can seem mountainous. However, the wrong mindset isn’t going to help you overcome the problem. Fortunately, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and more can find help. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to help you get to the root of your issue, and get you back on the path to restorative sleep. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.

Unhelpful Sleep Beliefs

Do you remember the last time you got a good night’s sleep? For many, the answer to that question is too difficult to remember. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues impacting sleep do have options. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treatments available, and he has helped people in your shoes before. With his help, you can be the next person to get back on the road to restorative sleep!

When you aren’t getting quality sleep, there are a number of misconceptions that may make you feel worse. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing how to address the most unhelpful beliefs about sleep.

  • Function – Many people believe that if they get a poor night sleep, they will automatically not function well the next day. While there may be some impact, the effects tend to be small, and there is small correlation between insomnia and daytime sleepiness.
  • Plans – As you are laying there, unable to sleep, you may be worried that you’ll have to cancel tomorrow’s plans. However, as previously mentioned, the impact is generally small, and you should be fine doing what you wanted. Knowing this may even help you sleep better.
  • Effort – Most things in life require effort, but sleep is not one of them. Trying to fall asleep will only make things more difficult, and end up putting more pressure on yourself. Give yourself the right conditions, and then let go emotionally.

When you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, you may struggle to figure out the causes. However, this can end up doing more harm than good, as you add another stressor to your situation. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues impacting sleep have enough to worry about. So, let Dr. Jay R. Goldman focus on creating a treatment that works for you. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.

  • Obsession – Obsessive behaviors can cause a number of issues for your mental health. Your best bet is to nip these behaviors in the bud, as we are not designed to do anything in excess. Beware of crazy work schedules, dietary habits, attention to detail, punishing exercise and more.

Common Millennial Habits To Avoid (Part 2)

4849364_orig

Are you struggling to get enough sleep at night? If so, you are one of many people suffering from a lack of quality rest. However, regardless of whether you are dealing with insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another issue plaguing your sleep, you don’t have to accept this as your permanent reality. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to get to work with you, and help you get to the root of whatever is bothering you. Overcoming your issue may be exactly what you need to start getting more restful sleep at night.

Last week, we discussed a few common habits for Millennials to avoid. Today, we continue our look with a few more things that can make this generation more stressed and less productive.

  • Sitting – Sitting has become a major issue in today’s society. We have all heard about the health dangers associated with a sedentary lifestyle, but this even includes an increased risk of anxiety. Make sure to get up and walk around at work, and get regular exercise.
  • Phone – With one study showing Americans spend an average of nine hours per day on their phones, this habit has grown into a huge entity. Unfortunately, increased screen time can increase anxiety, and more time on social media is associated with low moods and depression. Do your best to use it in moderation.
  • Work – Millennials can become more stressed and anxious when work seeps into their personal lives. Make sure you are able to truly “clock out,” by scheduling a consistent time to quit work by.

Much of today’s technology is fantastic, but it can also lead to a more stressful existence. And, this can certainly cross over into our sleep, making it harder to achieve. If you are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another issue disturbing your sleep, it is time to do something about it. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped patients in your shoes before, and he is ready to help you next. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.
