How to Get Rid of Sleeping Disorder
Millions of Americans of all ages are affected by sleeping disorder, many with severe, chronic sleep deprivation. A round-the-clock activity-driven society has meant that many individuals habitually defer sleep to get other things done. "I'll catch up later," is, however, easier said than done. Recent research indicates that pervasive sleep deprivation can lead to more serious health problems than just a dull clouded feeling the next morning-including obesity, high blood pressure and diminished resistance to infections.
Information on Sleeping Disorder:
Your sleeping habits and your mood are interrelated. Like it or not, sleep follows its own laws which have no consideration or respect for man-made systems, whether that is a short week-end or the big retirement. The fact is, sleep illudes us when we have all the time in the world to sleep.
Insomnia is a very common sleep problem, affecting almost everyone at some point in their lives. People with insomnia report that they can't fall asleep or they cannot stay asleep. This leads to daytime weariness and loss of productivity. It also leads to irritability and reduced enjoyment of family and social life. Find out various sleeping disorder types.
Sleeping Disorder and Depression:
It has been stated at many places that depression can cause insomnia.
Sleep disturbances and depression are anything but strange bed fellows. Nearly all depressed individuals experience sleep problems. Indeed, early-morning awakening is a hallmark of the mood disorder.
Yet exactly how disturbed sleep and depression fit together is one of the continuing puzzles of neuroscience. Many mental health experts believe that sleep is a primary window into the brain and holds some key secrets of mood disorders.
The amount of sleep a person gets also strongly influences the symptoms of mental disorders. Sleep deprivation is an effective therapy for people with certain types of depression, while it can actually cause depression in other people. Extreme sleep deprivation can lead to a seemingly psychotic state of paranoia and hallucinations in otherwise healthy people, and disrupted sleep can trigger episodes of mania (agitation and hyperactivity) in people with manic depression.
Sleeping Disorder Statistics:
At least 40 million Americans each year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders each year, and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleeping problems. These disorders and the resulting sleep deprivation interfere with work, driving, and social activities. Doctors have described more than 70 sleep disorders, most of which can be managed effectively once they are correctly diagnosed.
What is the Treatment of Sleeping Disorder?
There are many effective ways for the sleeping disorder treatment. Some of the various alternates are stated as below:
Drugs may be prescribed when the cause of insomnia includes a particularly stressful situation (i.e., bereavement or the loss of a job) or a pain from some physical condition, or if a person's efficiency and sense of well-being are seriously impaired by sleeplessness. Hypnotic (sleep-inducing) drugs should never be combined with even a small amount of alcohol, a sedative that enhances gastrointestinal absorption of the drugs and compounds their effects.
Always follow your doctor's specific instructions for treating insomnia. Alcohol consumption may cause initial drowsiness, but this is usually followed by sudden wakefulness after the alcohol is metabolized. It may be more difficult to get back to sleep than it was beforehand.
There is no other better option than to naturally get good nights sleep.Some of the good habits for sound and good night sleep are as follows:
So, good night and sleep tight. No matter how and when you sleep, do sleep.

I awaken at 6AM to get to work on time. I try to get to sleep by 10PM. I get my deepest sleep after 4AM. By 6AM I am too exhausted to awaken without a struggle. Between 10PM and 4AM I doze, toss & turn, ponder issues - all with my eyes closed. How can I adjust so that my need for deep sleep occurs when I normally am in bed. My goal is to awaken refreshed on a work day. - Bills
