4849364_orig

Are you or a loved one struggling to get enough sleep at night? When you aren’t getting your eight hours, or perhaps even six, life can seem pretty difficult. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related issues do have hope. The treatment options available at Dr. Jay R. Goldman‘s office have changed many lives, and you can be the next to experience this. Don’t suffer in silence for another minute, when you have access to recovery!

Have you noticed that your lack of sleep has also come with some weight gain? If so, it is likely that this link is much more than a coincidence. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing the link between sleep deprivation and weight gain. According to the piece, those who sleep between 3.5 and 5.5 hours consume hundreds of more calories per day. Of course, they also tend to go for the fatty foods, and avoid foods with high levels of protein, making weight gain even more likely.

Struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night is difficult on anybody. When you are sleep deprived, any small task can seem like a major issue. However, Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to provide treatment options to get you back on the road to recovery. He knows that getting to the root of your issue can make all the difference in the world. Contact Dr. Jay R.

Techniques To Avoid Catastrophizing

6081795_orig

There is little doubt that not getting enough sleep at night causes a lot of problems. Beyond the direct health issues that may occur with regular lost sleep, indirect inattentiveness and lost concentration can have further, wide ranging effects. The bottom line is that life is a struggle for those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues. Fortunately, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many treatment options available that can turn your life around for the better. And, when you are finally getting restorative sleep, all of life’s issues can seem so much smaller.

One issue that many cognitive-behavior therapists have to deal with is clients who catastrophize. Basically, these patients end up on a catastrophic line of thinking that plagues their lives. However, as recently discussed by Psychology Today, there are a number of ways to deal with this behavior.

  • Specifics – It is important to realize that just because someone feels one way, doesn’t mean everyone feels the same way. If one minor aspect of your life is failing, it doesn’t mean your whole world is failing. Don’t overgeneralize the things going on in your life.
  • Sleep – For those suffering from sleep disorders, this is obviously easier said than done. However, getting quality sleep can absolutely stop those catastrophic thoughts from building up. Sleep deprivation can make people feel more hypersensitive to threats.
  • Physical – Like sleep, exercise can do a number on your catastrophic thoughts. Get some fresh air, take deep breaths, and do a little stretching. All of these things can have a positive impact on your life.

Are you ready to attempt to move passed the issues that are causing so much trouble? It may seem like a long shot, but getting to the root of your issues can make all the difference in the world. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has a ton of experience helping people who are going through the same issues that you are currently suffering from. And, he wants to show you that you no longer have to suffer in silence. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Sleep & Impact On Weight

1186969

Have you recently been struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night? Have you also noticed that your pants are starting to fit a bit more snugly? Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other sleep issues may notice that they are putting on weight, too. Unfortunately, this isn’t some random coincidence, and those lacking sleep can expect weight gain may follow. As a recent Psychology Today article discussed, when you sleep less, you generally weigh more.

There are many potential factors that keep someone from getting the right amount of sleep at night. However, those who are lacking the right amount of sleep do seem to have something in common – food cravings. And, as a recent study found out, those food cravings generally include fatty or sugary options. In fact, it is reported that the average intake of extra calories in someone who has only gotten four hours of sleep is a whopping 385 calories. So, figuring out a way to improve your sleep habits can go a long way towards helping you lose weight, too.

Are you looking for a path back to healthy, restorative sleep? Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many treatment options available to help get you there. He knows that once you are able to get to the root of your issue, sleep may become much more attainable. Don’t suffer in silence for another night when you have access to help! Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.

Impact Of Daylight Savings On Sleep

8340940_orig

Do you remember the last time you were able to get a healthy amount of sleep at night? For those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues, that question can be difficult to answer. However, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many treatment options available that can make a very positive impact. He knows that sometimes it takes getting to the root of your issue to turn things around. And, he also knows how many seemingly small things can go into throwing off your much needed rest.

For the overwhelming majority of Americans, we recently experienced our annual “fall back” period. And, although many people think of the occasion as a perfect way to gain an extra hour of sleep, the situation isn’t that black and white. As discussed in Psychology Today, the small shift in time can wreak major havoc on your sleep. Our circadian rhythms are extremely delicate, and that hour shift in the time can throw things off (from the expected light at a certain time to natural wake up patterns). With so many health issues caused by even a minor lack of sleep, the time change remains a difficult issue for many to deal with.

Are you or a loved one struggling to get your eight hours of sleep at night? Does even six hours sound like an impossible dream that you can no longer obtain? Sleep has far too great an impact on your overall health for you to take things for granted. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to provide you with treatment options to help get you back on the path to restorative sleep. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.
