Aging & Sleep


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.
