Plenty of people with rare sleep disorders wind up prescribed some form of medication, whether it’s a stimulant to keep them awake during the day or something to compel their bodies to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.
Sleep experts caution, however, that even rare sleep disorders may be resolved without the use of prescription medicines if the people experiencing the sleep disorders make an effort to really set the stage for a good night’s sleep.
Many times this takes behavioral modifications that may be completely contrary to what the person is used to, but many people find that by changing their behavior in relation to how they view their bed and how they approach the time for sleep can truly have a huge effect on how well they get to sleep every night.
What many people don’t realize is that their bodies often require some advanced notice and preparation time prior to attempting to fall asleep. Not everyone has the capability of going straight from an active state to suddenly winding down and falling into a state of restful sleep. It is this lack of transition and lack of preparation that often causes a rare sleep disorder to develop.
It is the body’s way of coping with something it can’t handle. For this reason, it is extremely important for people to make sure their bodies receive sufficient notice that sleep is imminent. Parents are often urged to set up a nighttime ritual for their kids to prepare them each night for sleeping, and there is no reason why an adult should not also have a persistent nighttime ritual. It might include a brief time for reading, then a warm shower, and then heading off to bed.
What it shouldn’t include is watching an exhilarating program on television, doing rigorous exercises, or pondering over things that are upsetting or worrisome. These activities certainly do not set the stage for a good night’s sleep.
People should avoid activities in bed that do not pertain to sleeping. Reading in bed, watching television in bed, or eating in bed are all bad habits that can really make falling asleep more difficult. If you insist on engaging in these activities right before bedtime, consider doing them in a separate room where they will not affect your ability to get to sleep and to stay asleep.
Believe it or not, caffeine and alcohol consumption many hours prior to bedtime might affect your ability to fall asleep. You may not think that coffee on the way home from work could possibly influence your sleep that night, but studies have shown time and again that caffeine and alcohol can have a huge effect on quality of sleep even when the consumption takes place hours before attempting to fall asleep.
If you think you may have a sleeping disorder rare or otherwise you should first take a look at your behaviors prior to bedtime to see if there are some activities you can eliminate that might be making it more difficult for you to get some quality sleep.
