6081795_orig

Do you remember the last time you got enough sleep at night? If that memory is becoming more and more distant, it is time to do something about it! Luckily, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other issues plaguing sleep do have hope. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has helped a number of patients in your shoes before, and he is ready to work on you next. The right treatments can absolutely get you back on the road to restorative sleep.

Do you want more incentive to be virtuous in life? Psychology Today recently discussed how virtue is its own reward, and how it even may help you sleep better.

  • Purpose – Finding your purpose in life can help you sleep like an angel. In the study, seniors with a purpose in life were less likely to have sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. Having a higher sense of purpose can act as a preventive against stress and anxiety.
  • Generous – It doesn’t take major acts of generosity to experience benefits. In fact, it is important that you don’t give beyond your means. However, generosity does light up the “warm glow” part of the brain.
  • Kindness – Think about performing some random acts of kindness. It doesn’t take something big to boost your happiness levels. Even just talking with a friend about their problems or writing a thank you note can be a great thing.

Many people are searching for ways to fall asleep more easily. But, sometimes all it takes is adding a little bit of virtue to your day. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues destroying sleep can find help, too. Dr. Jay R. Goldman may have just what you need with treatment at his office. Contact him, today, and set up your appointment.

  • Diet – Believe it or not, a simple change in diet can make a major difference for pain. Because pain and depression have been linked to inflammation in the body, an anti-inflammatory diet can be a game changer. Look for unrefined, primarily plant-based foods, as well as omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Probiotics – Probiotics can have a number of health benefits, including decreased social anxiety and depression, as well as better gut health. The latter can assist you in the fight against painful GI disorders.
  • Music – Music can actually reduce pain severity and improve coping ability. Make sure to select music you like, listen attentively, and know benefits will increase over the course of a listening session.

Is sleep a constant battle for you, each and every night? You know how much sleep you’d like to get, but you don’t remember the last time it’s happened. In many cases, it may be insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another issue that is plaguing your sleep. And, the good news is that there are treatments available to get you back on the path to restorative sleep. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to work with you, and get to the bottom of whatever is disturbing your life (and sleep).

It is time for students everywhere to head back to school. So, Psychology Today is back with tips on being ready for those early wakeups again.

  • Diary – Have your child keep a sleep diary, and make sure it gets entries seven days a week. If they are sleeping longer on the weekends, they are probably paying off “sleep debts,” and need some weekly adjustments.
  • Bedtimes – Most children need non-negotiable bedtimes, in order to get enough sleep at night. For example, if they have to wake up at 6:30, they need to go to bed by 10:30 to have any chance at eight hours of sleep.
  • Noise – You aren’t doing your child any favors if you’re watching television loudly right as they go to bed. The noise will keep them up, and they may get interested in whatever it is that you’re doing.

During the school year, it can be hard for kids to get enough sleep. However, there are techniques that will give them a fighting shot at achieving this. And, for those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or another issue disrupting sleep, something needs to be done. Dr. Jay R. Goldman may have just what you need with treatment at his office. Contact him, today, and set up your appointment.

6792300_orig

Are you struggling to get enough sleep at night? Countless people try and fail to get the sleep that their bodies require. However, those dealing with insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues plaguing sleep do have hope. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treated many patients in your situation before, and he is ready to help you next. When you get started on treatment, you may find that the solution is much easier to obtain than you had thought.

Last week, we started discussion of Psychology Today’s piece about unhelpful sleep beliefs. Today, we look at a few more thoughts that can disturb your rest.

  • Health – Many studies point to the negative health effects of insomnia, but it is unclear which process leads to which. In many cases, it very well may be other issues causing the insomnia in the first place. Obviously, insomnia isn’t good for us, but don’t magnify the process while trying to sleep.
  • Duration – You always hear about the elusive eight hours of sleep. However, adults are recommended to get 7-9 hours, and every single person is different. There are those who can do just fine on six hours a night.
  • Catching up – Some people fall into the temptation of trying to immediately catch up on lost sleep. But, this can be counterproductive when you end up laying in bed for a longer amount of time. Stick to your normal sleep schedule, and you will work it out.

When you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, all of life’s tasks can seem mountainous. However, the wrong mindset isn’t going to help you overcome the problem. Fortunately, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and more can find help. Dr. Jay R. Goldman is ready to help you get to the root of your issue, and get you back on the path to restorative sleep. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.

Unhelpful Sleep Beliefs

Do you remember the last time you got a good night’s sleep? For many, the answer to that question is too difficult to remember. However, those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues impacting sleep do have options. Dr. Jay R. Goldman has treatments available, and he has helped people in your shoes before. With his help, you can be the next person to get back on the road to restorative sleep!

When you aren’t getting quality sleep, there are a number of misconceptions that may make you feel worse. Psychology Today recently wrote an article, discussing how to address the most unhelpful beliefs about sleep.

  • Function – Many people believe that if they get a poor night sleep, they will automatically not function well the next day. While there may be some impact, the effects tend to be small, and there is small correlation between insomnia and daytime sleepiness.
  • Plans – As you are laying there, unable to sleep, you may be worried that you’ll have to cancel tomorrow’s plans. However, as previously mentioned, the impact is generally small, and you should be fine doing what you wanted. Knowing this may even help you sleep better.
  • Effort – Most things in life require effort, but sleep is not one of them. Trying to fall asleep will only make things more difficult, and end up putting more pressure on yourself. Give yourself the right conditions, and then let go emotionally.

When you aren’t getting enough sleep at night, you may struggle to figure out the causes. However, this can end up doing more harm than good, as you add another stressor to your situation. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other issues impacting sleep have enough to worry about. So, let Dr. Jay R. Goldman focus on creating a treatment that works for you. Contact his office, today, and set up your appointment.
