Discussing Mental Health Days For Kids

6792300_orig

When you go one night without restful sleep, life can seem difficult enough. However, when those days start to add up, all of life’s challenges can seem nearly impossible. And, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other issues plaguing sleep can seem like things are impossible to overcome. But, when you get started with a professional who is capable of helping you, you will be that much closer to feeling better. And, Dr. Jay R. Goldman is looking forward to helping you during the process.

We have all heard of the term “taking a mental health day,” but we may not have heard it in context with our children. However, as recently discussed by Psychology Today, children can absolutely benefit from taking a mental health day, as long as it is for the right reasons. Of course, this doesn’t mean missing school when they aren’t prepared for a big project or exam. It is more for a student who are struggling so badly that a day at school might just make them worse. But, it is important to limit the amount of these days, and make sure they are spent doing activities that will help the cause.

Are you ready to start to move passed the issues in your life? It can be extremely hard to do this without the right steps from a licensed professional. After all, how can you be expected to feel any better when you aren’t attacking the major issues at play? Dr. Jay R. Goldman will help you get back on the path to restorative sleep. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.

Sleep Strengthens Memories

Have you grown tired of feeling tired all the time? When it comes down to it, you may not know exactly how much sleep you need. But, you certainly know when you aren’t getting enough of it by the way you feel. Fortunately, for those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or other issues plaguing sleep, there is something you can do. Your treatment starts by coming into the office of Dr. Jay R. Goldman, and working on a plan that is tailor made for you.

There is still a ton that science needs to learn about everything sleep related. However, as Psychology Today recently reported, they are making new discoveries all the time. According to the latest piece, sleep has been shown to strengthen recent learning and negative memories. Unfortunately, the study showed that a sleeping group remembered negative memories more than an awake group. This was an interesting finding, as the same test failed for neutral memories (sleeping did not make a difference on remembering).

Despite its unfortunate ability to help you remember negative memories, sleep is absolutely critical in everybody’s life. And, when you continuously aren’t getting enough, it can lead to a lot of consequences. Are you ready to get to the bottom of your insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or whatever is causing you to lose sleep? Let Dr. Jay R. Goldman help put you back on the path to restorative rest, as he helps you work through the issues in your life. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.

Are you struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night? You may not know exactly how much you need, but you know you certainly aren’t getting it. But, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other issues affecting sleep do have hope. That hope comes in the form of treatment options with Dr. Jay R. Goldman. He would love to help you get passed your issues, and help you back onto the path towards restorative sleep.

For those looking for improvements to their sleep, it may come down to going to bed earlier. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, providing practical tips for going to bed earlier.

  • Activities – If you have wind down activities as part of your sleep hygiene, find a way to move these up earlier into the night. If you don’t, consider starting this routine, as a sign for your brain to power down for the day.
  • Tomorrow – If you are having trouble stopping an activity for the night, consider using the “now or tomorrow” principle. This has the ability to work, by telling yourself you can continue to do things you want, tomorrow (if you still want to).
  • Applications – When it comes down to it, there are applications that can help your sleep. The f.lux app will automatically remove blue light from your screen at a specific time, while StayFocusd can help you grasp a better understanding of your time usage.

There are many possible explanations for a bad night’s sleep. But, when these nights begin to become more routine, something needs to change. After all, extended periods of poor rest can end up with many consequences to your health. Instead of dealing with that, make sure you are working with an expert to change your patterns. Contact Dr. Jay R. Goldman, today, and set up your appointment.
