Bathing before bedtime will help anyone sleep

Men, women and children who all can get stressed out during the day, can get muscles relaxed from a warm bath before bed. As any doctor will tell you, it is extremely important to everyone’s health to sleep well at night. Your body repairs daily damage done during the day – at night while you are sleeping. The sleep stage known as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is the stage of sleep that most people with sleeping problems miss, and this is the stage when repair is done.

Poor sleeping habits are the common causes of problems for most people; women, men or children. A well used and healthy body has very little trouble sleeping so exercise for everyone no matter what the age, is important. But over used muscles can keep anyone from sleep. So a warm bath with salts, bubble bath or soothing oils is a pleasure that everyone should give themselves. Children especially love bubble bath. Bathing salts and oils are mostly used by women but men should occasionally try these also.

Progressive muscle relaxation is a promising natural remedy for sleep. If you’ve never tried a relaxation technique before, this is the time. But don’t do this in a bathtub as you could relax too much and fall asleep in the tub.

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by chronic problems falling asleep, staying asleep or only sleeping for several hours and being wake unable to fall back to sleep. It is typically followed by functional impairment while awake. Both organic and non-organic insomnia constitute a sleep disorder.

It can be caused by another disorder, by changes in the sleep environment, by the timing of sleep, or by stress. Its consequences – sleepiness and impaired psychomotor performance – are similar to those of sleep deprivation. If this form of insomnia continues to occur from time to time, the insomnia is classified as intermittent.

Any chronic sleep problems can also be symptoms of medical problems, so if you continue having problems sleeping for more than two weeks. Before starting any natural remedies, consult your doctor. Chronic insomnia can itself be a symptom of another condition, such as depression, heart disease, sleep apnea, lung disease, or diabetes, so it’s important to see a doctor if you are having trouble sleeping.

Sleep medicine is a recognized medical subspecialty. Doctors who specialize in sleep medicine help people who are unable to sleep well. Sleep doctors are able to detect and treat both common and rare sleep disorders. Some common sleep disorders are insomnia, jet lag, sleepwalking, snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep is usually last on everyone’s list of things to do – when it should be first on everyone’s list. And healthy people with good health habits usually should not have any trouble sleeping. In reality, sleeping is your most valuable activity of the day.

Bathing before bedtime will help anyone sleep – so add a warm soaking bath on your list of things to do, right along with sleeping.
