Grab That Office Power Nap

6760042

Not getting enough sleep at night can have major consequences. Those who don’t sleep well often end up with fuzzy thinking, poor memory, and sometimes even fall victim to anxiety or depression. However, if you or a loved one is suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other related issues, there are options available. The office of Dr. Jay R. Goldman specializes in a number of treatments to get you back on the path to restorative sleep. Napping may end up giving you a necessary boost, and if your workplace allows it, Psychology Today recently discussed essentials for your office power nap.

  • Surface – Unless you are lucky enough to have an employee nap room, you will most likely need to make your own sleeping space. This usually requires a footrest or foot hammock to elevate your feet, or even a backpacker’s sleeping pad.
  • Pillow – Whether you go with the popular U-shaped pillow, or an inflatable or camping alternative, a comfortable pillow is critical.
  • Noise – You’ll want to block out the noise for your quick snooze. Everything from ear plugs, to noise-cancelling headphones, to a white noise machine can work wonders.
  • Light – If your office is exposed to the light, an eye mask will be a necessity. They even have ones that go around your eyes, so you can avoid messing up any makeup.

Of course, not every job will allow the opportunity to grab a quick snooze. However, with increasing research outlining the importance of staying fresh, this option may be slowly gaining steam. Whether you have the ability to nap or not, getting the right amount of sleep at night is something that everyone can benefit from. So, if anything is preventing you from getting your eight hours, it is time to do something about it. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Break Your Insomnia Without Drugs

2914511_orig

Are the sleepless nights starting to add up for you? You can’t remember the last time you got a full night’s sleep, and it is starting to take a toll on your life. But, the good news is that those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress disorder, and other related issues do have options. Dr. Jay R. Goldman provides many treatments that can offer hope for your difficult situation. And, as a recent Psychology Today article shared, there are ways to sleep soundly again without drugs.

  • Normal – The first step to beating your insomnia is to accept that the occasional rough night of sleep is normal for everyone. As soon as you start to dwell on not being able to fall asleep, as well as putting pressure on yourself to fall asleep faster, you will create anticipatory anxiety, and a viscous cycle of sleeplessness.
  • Hygiene – Hygienic practices aren’t just for your teeth. Taking care of your sleep hygiene can lead to better success of catching your z’s. Proper sleep hygiene includes limiting or avoiding caffeine and alcohol, exercising regularly and away from bedtime, avoiding naps, maintaining a comfortable sleeping environment, and more.
  • Therapy – When sleep hygiene fails, it may be time to try Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This is a special service offered at the office of Dr. Jay R. Goldman, and it can be very beneficial.

Does another night without your proper sleep have you feeling worried? You need to start by realizing that everybody deals with difficult nights of sleep from time to time. However, if things become a pattern, and you need help, Dr. Jay R. Goldman can provide the treatment options that you need. That can be exactly what it takes to get you back on the path to restorative rest. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Struggling to get the proper amount of sleep at night can have major repercussions. Even the simplest of tasks can seem incredibly daunting when you aren’t getting your eight (or even six) hours. But, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues do have hope. There are many treatments available at the office of Dr. Jay R. Goldman, and that can help turn your life around. Sometimes, overextending yourself can drain your energy even more, and a recently Psychology Today article discussed how to heal from overcommitment.

  • Sleep – Make sure your commitments aren’t taking out your ability to get enough sleep. Going to bed early goes a long way towards lowering inflammation, and helping your body heal.
  • No – Don’t be afraid to turn down invitations. You don’t have to go to every single event that is offered your way. There will be plenty of opportunities down the road.
  • Meditate – Meditation can open your digestive tract, as well as lower inflammation in the body. It also allows your brain to repair from stress hormones.

Getting lost in a sea of commitments is a common issue in our society. However, knowing how to break this cycle can be a critical process for those who are overextending themselves. And, for those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues, there are treatments available. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to work with you, and help you move passed your difficult issue. Contact the office, today, and set up your appointment.

Treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder With Dr. Jay R. Goldman

663481_orig

Do you remember the last time you were able to achieve eight hours of sleep at night? If even six hours of sleep sounds like a lofty, unattainable goal, it is time to do something about it. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues do have hope. Dr. Jay R. Goldman understands what you are going through, and he offers many treatment options at his office. He looks forward to working with you, and helping you overcome your difficult issue.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a common problem, though many who have it actually know the thoughts are senseless or illogical. The biggest issue with OCD is that, despite this understanding, those thoughts continue like a runaway train. Are you tired of the rituals – repetitively doing things or putting things in order?

An excellent treatment for those suffering with OCD is the combination of:

  1. Exposure Therapy with Response Prevention (ETRP)
  2. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing)
  3. Mindfulness

Even if you had ETRP and it didn’t work, don’t be frustrated because the addition of EMDR and Mindfulness has yielded incredible results.

With a little work, OCD and other issues don’t have to run your life. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has the experience and knowledge to help you get beyond your situation. Oftentimes, that may put you back on the critical path towards restorative sleep. The important thing to understand is that you don’t need to suffer in silence. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
