Sleep Strengthens Memories

8340940_orig

Have you grown tired of feeling tired all the time? When it comes down to it, you may not know exactly how much sleep you need. But, you certainly know when you aren’t getting enough of it by the way you feel. Fortunately, for those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other issues plaguing sleep, there is something you can do. Your treatment starts by coming into the office of Dr. Jay R. Goldman, and working on a plan that is tailor made for you.

There is still a ton that science needs to learn about everything sleep related. However, as Psychology Today recently reported, they are making new discoveries all the time. According to the latest piece, sleep has been shown to strengthen recent learning and negative memories. Unfortunately, the study showed that a sleeping group remembered negative memories more than an awake group. This was an interesting finding, as the same test failed for neutral memories (sleeping did not make a difference on remembering).

Despite its unfortunate ability to help you remember negative memories, sleep is absolutely critical in everybody’s life. And, when you continuously aren’t getting enough, it can lead to a lot of consequences. Are you ready to get to the bottom of your insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or whatever is causing you to lose sleep? Let Dr. Jay R. Goldman help put you back on the path to restorative rest, as he helps you work through the issues in your life. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.

Are you struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night? You may not know exactly how much you need, but you know you certainly aren’t getting it. But, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other issues affecting sleep do have hope. That hope comes in the form of treatment options with Dr. Jay R. Goldman. He would love to help you get passed your issues, and help you back onto the path towards restorative sleep.

For those looking for improvements to their sleep, it may come down to going to bed earlier. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, providing practical tips for going to bed earlier.

  • Activities – If you have wind down activities as part of your sleep hygiene, find a way to move these up earlier into the night. If you don’t, consider starting this routine, as a sign for your brain to power down for the day.
  • Tomorrow – If you are having trouble stopping an activity for the night, consider using the “now or tomorrow” principle. This has the ability to work, by telling yourself you can continue to do things you want, tomorrow (if you still want to).
  • Applications – When it comes down to it, there are applications that can help your sleep. The f.lux app will automatically remove blue light from your screen at a specific time, while StayFocusd can help you grasp a better understanding of your time usage.

There are many possible explanations for a bad night’s sleep. But, when these nights begin to become more routine, something needs to change. After all, extended periods of poor rest can end up with many consequences to your health. Instead of dealing with that, make sure you are working with an expert to change your patterns. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Are you or a loved one struggling to get regular sleep? If so, it should be no surprise if it starts to take a toll on your life. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other issues impacting sleep often develop health issues if the problem festers. Of course, it is important to realize that those who have one or more of these issues do have hope. It may just come down to getting started with Dr. Jay R. Goldman on a treatment option designed to work for you.

Light therapy is something that can have a number of benefits. Psychology Today recently discussed some of these in a recent piece.

  • Depression – For those who are depressed, being exposed to natural sunlight can have big benefits. This is especially true early in the morning, when antidepressant benefits are high.
  • Sleep – Light treatment has shown promising results for those suffering from sleep disorders. Bright light exposure can help to manage circadian rhythm sleep issues, but may not be as effective for other types of insomnia.
  • Safety – Though light therapy has potential benefits, be sure not to use sunlamps (which emit harmful rays). Additionally, avoid looking into light at non-oblique angles to avoid eye strain. This is best done under the care of a licensed professional.

Going through life without regular sleep can be extremely draining. But, the good news is that there are plenty of treatment options out there to help you. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped patients with insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and a number of other issues. Just remember that you don’t have to suffer in silence for another period of time. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Sleep & Your Social Life

Are you struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night? Although the right amount of sleep is different for different people, you certainly know when you aren’t getting it. However, if you are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another issue affecting your sleep, you are not alone. And, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped a number of patients stuck in your shoes before. If you are ready to take the first step on the road to better sleep, you have found the right place.

Did you know that a lack of sleep can severely impact your social life in a negative way? Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing how lack of sleep affects your social life.

  • Close relationships – Sleep greatly impacts our intimate relationships. When one partner has slept poorly the night before, there’s more conflict in the relationship the next day. The reason for this is because those lacking sleep also often lack empathy for others, and aren’t likely to engage in conflict resolution.
  • Perception – On a normal day, you can judge people by their facial expressions and emotions displayed. However, after a night of poor sleep, our ability to do this greatly diminishes. Obviously, this can also lead to conflicts in our day to day interactions.
  • Stress – Believe it or not, how we react and cope with stressful situations in our life also depends on our sleep quality. Emotion regulation requires intense effort, and you may not be able to reach this without the right rest.

Have you finally experienced the last straw, when it comes to poor sleep? All of life’s little problems seem insurmountable, and you feel like there has to be an easier way. Fortunately, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other issues impacting sleep do have hope. That hope comes in the form of a number of potential treatment options with Dr. Jay R. Goldman. Contact his office, today, and see how simple it is to set up your appointment.

Waking Up Sore, Stiff & Unrested

631478_orig

Have you grown sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? This is the unfortunate reality for many people who don’t get enough sleep at night. And, when these rough nights start to add up, all of life’s problems can seem like major issues. However, if you are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other issues impacting sleep, you don’t have to accept things as permanent. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped many patients in your shoes before, and he is ready to help you, too.

If waking up feeling sore, stiff and unrested sounds familiar, you are not alone. And, Psychology Today recently explored the issue, talking about some of the potential culprits. When it comes down to it, your sleep “equipment” is the most likely reason for you feeling like this upon waking. If you climbed a mountain wearing shoes that were too small, your feet would hurt – and the same can be said for sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress or pillow. Additionally, inflammation caused by injury, aging, diet, and more can be another cause of waking up feeling less than your best.

Sooner or later, you’re going to get more desperate for regular sleep. At that point, you can accept your limitations caused by insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or other issue. Or, you can resolve to do something about it, and step into the office of Dr. Jay R. Goldman. He will help you get to the root of your problem, so that you can get back on the path to restorative sleep. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
