Are you tired of feeling so tired all of the time? That is an unfortunate side effect of not getting enough sleep at night, especially when it is a consistent problem. And, when you are suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues, sleep can be even tougher to come by. The good news is that treatment options do exist, and they may be enough to turn your life around. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to help you get to the bottom of your issue, and help you feel better about life.

The link between quality sleep and good mental health is undeniable. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing three reasons why good sleep is crucial for mental health.

  • Cleaning – Our brains need regular cleanings after a long day of work, and they use quality sleep for this. So, don’t be surprised if you feel groggy and disoriented the day after a bad night of sleep.
  • Experiences – Believe it or not, those who sleep immediately after a traumatic event have less of a chance of developing PTSD. This is because sleep gives your brain the chance to consolidate and process things.
  • Peace – Keeping a peaceful mind contributes to peaceful sleep. Mindfulness techniques, such as meditation, can be an effective way to achieve more quality sleep.

When you aren’t getting enough quality sleep at night, life can be tough. And, those around you may also have to deal with the strain that it puts on you. But, Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to help you get back on the path to restorative sleep. With him on your side, you don’t have to worry about suffering in silence anymore. Contact Dr. Jay R.

Insomnia Myths

1186969

Not getting restorative sleep at night will take its toll on anyone. The consequences from a lack of quality sleep occur at both short term and long term durations, so it is important to try to get your issue under control. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other related issues may feel especially hopeless. The good news is that Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped patients in your shoes before, and he is ready to help you. He has a number of treatment options that can help turn your life around for the better.

Insomnia is a difficult issue to deal with, but there are many myths associated with the condition. A recent Psychology Today article looked at some of these problems.

  • Eight Hours – We always talk about “getting your eight hours,” but different people need different amounts of sleep. Generally, a person needs somewhere between five and ten hours, and you may need to experiment to figure out how much you need.
  • Interruptions – The effects of being woken up throughout the night can be extreme. In a study, those who slept for seven hours, but were woken up several times, felt as poorly as those who only slept for four hours.
  • Bedtime – Many of us have been told to go to bed and wake up at the same time, every day. And, while waking up at a similar hour can help you avoid jet lag feelings, you should really only go to bed when you feel tired.

Sometimes, insomnia can be exacerbated by trying to fall asleep too hard. When you put pressure on yourself to do something, it generally doesn’t work out how you hope. However, Dr. Jay R. Goldman has many techniques and strategies to put you on the path to restorative sleep. He knows that once you get to the root of your issue, sleep may be much easier to come by. Contact Dr. Jay R.
