Halloween & Time Changes Are Arriving

2914511_orig

Today, we have finally hit Halloween, and the last day of the month of October. That means we are less than a week away from “falling back,” and potentially gaining an hour of sleep for a night. However, the impact of going from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time can affect those who already have trouble sleeping. So, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other sleep issues should pay attention to a recent Psychology Today article. The piece discussed how the upcoming time change can cause issues for some.

The piece argues that, in some way, adjusting to “springing forward” can actually be an easier transition. Despite the potential loss of sleep, most people can force themselves to stay up for an extra hour, while those with insomnia may have even more trouble falling asleep earlier. However, the piece also discusses a study that points to “springing forward” as the more difficult adjustment, citing the issue of a lost hour of sleep in our already sleep deprived nation. In fact, the study showed that more heart attack patients were admitted to the hospital following DST, with a decrease after a shift back to ST. If possible, take advantage of the upcoming time change, and grab an extra hour of sleep.

Are you or a loved one suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another sleeping issue? The good news is that you do have hope in your seemingly bleak situation. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many treatment options available that can get you back on the path to restorative sleep. And, all of life’s tasks can seem much easier when you are getting more restful sleep. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Waking In The Middle Of The Night May Be Natural

6760042

Do you remember the last time that you were able to successfully get a good amount of sleep at night? You probably remember waking up feeling particularly refreshed – a feeling that you don’t have often enough. But, if you are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another condition that is plaguing your sleep pattern, there remains hope. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treatment options available that can bring you back to the path of restorative sleep. He understands that, oftentimes, there is a root to your issue, and that part needs to be dealt with.

Sometimes, insomnia is caused simply by overthinking things. As soon as you start pressuring yourself to fall asleep, sleep becomes that much more difficult to obtain. However, as recently reported by Psychology Today, it is important to realize that waking up in the middle of the night may actually be a natural function. Studies have shown that some of us may be wired to sleep in a biphasic pattern, where we sleep for four hours, wake for a few, and then sleep for four more. Regardless of your current schedule, it is important to realize that it may be a natural process for your body.

When you accept that your sleep pattern may be normal, you are taking the first step towards a cognitive behavior technique that may work for you. Dr. Jay R. Goldman believes very strongly in these practices, and he has seen them work for many patients. The bottom line is that you don’t have to suffer in silence for another day. The right treatment can put you back on the path to healthy, restorative sleep. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Aging & Sleep

6792300_orig

Getting the right amount of sleep at night is something that is easy to take for granted. This is, of course, until you can’t manage to achieve it anymore. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related issues may all find that excellent night of sleep elusive. However, it is important to remember that sleep is not a luxury – it is a biologic necessity. And, as recently discussed in Psychology Today, aging impacts our sleep patterns.

Sleep extends far beyond giving our bodies a time to rest. Sleep is responsible for allowing our brains to re-pattern, and allows our brain cells to form new connections. As we age, we experience a decreased continuity in sleep, marked by an increased number of arousals. Although this may have helped our ancestors deal with nocturnal predators, it does little to help us out in the current world. Listening to your body, including waiting until you actually feel tired to go to sleep, is an ideal situation.

When you aren’t getting the right amount of sleep at night, life becomes extremely difficult. Ordinary, simple tasks end up seeming like impossible mountains to climb. That is why Dr. Jay R. Goldman works so hard to make sure you are able to overcome your issue. He knows that once you get to the root of your problem, it will be much easier to get back on the path to healthy, restorative sleep. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Lack of Sleep May Cause Lack of Empathy

Do you remember the last time that you were able to get enough sleep at night? You probably woke up extremely fresh, but it is the kind of feeling you haven’t experienced much since. To be sure, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues have an uphill battle to climb. The good news is that there are treatment options available that can begin to lead you back on the path to restorative sleep. Dr. Jay R. Goldman would love the opportunity to show you that you can overcome your obstacles, and feel better about life again.

There is no doubt that a lack of sleep can cause a number of problems in your life. However, did you know that not getting enough sleep can actually cause you to have a lack of empathy? A Psychology Today article recently looked at how a bad night’s sleep can lead to a very short supply of compassionate behavior. Though it was already known that problems sleeping can create negative effects on cognitive function, less was known about the effects on empathy. The newer study did show the connection, which makes insomnia in health care workers a potentially critical issue.

Eventually, you are going to grow weary of the sleepless nights. After all, when you aren’t getting the right amount of sleep at night, all of life’s tasks can seem difficult. That is why Dr. Jay R. Goldman works so hard to help you overcome your issue. After you get to the root of your problem, you may find that it is a lot easier to get some restorative rest. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
