Effective Ways to Relieve Insomnia Without Prescription Medication

Effective Ways to Relieve Insomnia Without Prescription Medication

Guest article by Dylan Foster

Insomnia is an extremely common problem among Americans, affecting around one in four adults every year. Prescription medication can provide temporary relief. However, sleeping pills do nothing to treat the underlying physical or mental problems that cause sleep disturbances and may even worsen insomnia in the long run. If you’re looking for relief from insomnia, try some of the following natural sleep aids and healthy habits.

Upgrade Your Bed

Start by taking a good look at your mattress. Sleeping on an old mattress can cause stiffness, pain, and even trigger allergies! If you often sleep better away from home, your mattress may be robbing you of restful slumber. Before buying a new mattress, do some research to find one that suits your body type and sleep style. Mattresses are not one-size-fits-all. For example, Tuft & Needle mattresses may be too soft for people who weigh over 250 pounds, but they provide excellent support for petite and medium-sized individuals in any sleep position. If you share your bed with a partner, look for mattresses like these that can accommodate various sleep styles.

Use Technology Wisely

By delaying your body’s internal clock, electronic use close to bedtime can keep you awake long after your head hits the pillow. Try to put the phone away at least one hour before bed. If you’re having trouble limiting your screen time, try listening to music or a podcast instead of scrolling through social media or watching YouTube videos.

Believe it or not, you can even use your phone to enhance your sleep! Several apps can lull you into sleep with the help of relaxing melodies, stories, and guided meditation. Relax Melodies, for example, is a free app with over 100 calming sounds, including binaural beats and white noise. If you’re interested in relaxation exercises, try Headspace for guided meditations and The Breathing App for directed breathing regulation. Some apps like Sleep Cycle analyze your sleep cycles during the night and gently wake you up at the optimal time.

If your phone is struggling to keep up with your new sleep apps, it could be time for a tech upgrade. The new iPhone 11 may be a worthwhile investment, boasting 26 hours of battery life so it can reliably track your sleep all night long. If you’re not a fan of the iPhone, consider the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. This phone includes a night-mode feature with blue-light reduction to help prepare your eyes for sleep. Also, it will turn off certain functions to preserve battery life if you fall asleep while listening to your favorite relaxing songs or guided meditations.

Go Outside First Thing in the Morning

While light exposure in the evening can disrupt your sleep, getting outside first thing in the morning is a great way to reset your internal clock. According to Verywell Health, exposure to sunlight within an hour of waking up can help regulate your sleep-wake cycle so you can fall asleep more easily at night. Incorporate some outdoor time into your morning routine and see if it helps. Have breakfast on your balcony, or take a morning walk. Not only can this help improve your sleep quality, but it can also help you feel more energized in the mornings.

Exercise for 30 Minutes Every Day

Physical activity can have a significant effect on sleep quality. Just 30 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise may be enough to improve your sleep that very night, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine. If you’re having trouble shutting off your mind at night, try engaging in exercise a couple of hours before bed. Exercise is great for relieving stress and may help you relax more easily in the evening. Night-time exercise will also cause your body temperature to drop, which can trigger your brain to start winding down for sleep.

Better sleep may not be as hard to achieve as it may seem. For many people, healthy sleep habits can make a huge difference in their quality of sleep. Before you seek the help of prescription sleep medications, try tackling your sleep problems at the source so you can enjoy long-term relief from insomnia.

Costa Rica Fitcation 2019

with Steve and Felecia Rozansky

It seems like a dream, but it really happened. We traveled to the beautiful country of Costa Rica and Steve and Felecia were my guests. Steve and Felecia talk about how this trip was for them. All they had to do was show up and everything was planned and done for them. With our fast paced lives, sometimes it is nice to be completely pampered.

I had an itinerary for each person and we went with the flow. We sailed to a private island, hiked the volcano, covered ourselves in mud, and even worked out on the beach. Hear them tell their favorite part of the vacation! The best part is they will be on my next Fitcation to Kauai!!!! February 29th to March 5th, 2020. Hope to see you there too.

Why You Should Live Your Passion

Why You Should Live Your Passion

What are you truly passionate about? There are 2 things in my life that I am really passionate about: obviously fitness, but also gardening. We lead really hectic lives, we are always busy, so how do we slow down? For me its is working in my garden. Getting your hands dirty, seeing something you have nurtured grow, putting effort into a something that takes you away from your every day life relieves so much stress. Jennifer Mathus, of Fairway Independent Mortgage tells me all about her garden, her favorite plants and trees, and what gardening does for her. We also discuss mortgages, mortgage rates and the real estate market.

How We Manage Food, Fitness, and Life Then and Now w/ Andrea Robinson

andrea robinson fitminute podcast fitness personal trainingHow We Manage Food, Fitness, and Life Then and Now with Andrea Robinson

Former Fox 10 AZ Morning show host Andrea Robinson has always been a huge inspiration to me. Our story began years ago, before I was a trainer and when she was new to the morning show. Our lives have definitely changed since then.

Now retired from Fox 10, Andrea has begun a new chapter in her life. She’s become the mom she has always wanted to be, waking up with her kids every morning and taking them to school instead of waking up at 2:30am to wake up Arizona and she has started a new venture with her “You Do You” Journal.

We talk all about food and diet culture and how it has affected her, fitness and how it has evolved for her over the years, life then and now and what the future holds.
