Sleeplessness is one of the biggest and most annoying symptoms of menopause. It can be caused by many different things, such as: hormonal imbalances, anxiety and most commonly – night sweats.
Luckily you can get a better night’s sleep by making some simple lifestyle changes.
– Get plenty of exercise
Get a good workout plan that combines cardio with weight training for the best results.
– Get into a Routine
This should be more than just getting into bed at the same time each night; you should also get a routine for things like eating, exercising and taking your medication. This will help develop your internal clock.
– Avoid Taking Naps
As tempting as a nap might sound after lunch, rather keep yourself busy with work or go exercise, otherwise you will throw your routine out of shape completely which makes it more difficult to sleep at night.
– Avoid Caffeine
Try and cut back on caffeine as much as possible, especially in the afternoons. Rather replace your coffee with a cup of decaf, or better yet some herbal or green tea.
– Watch What You Eat
Try and stay away from spicy food and refined sugar. Cutting out sugar will also help manage weight, which will in turn also promote better sleep. Follow the Manna Diet in the free e-book.
Doing various breathing exercises before bed can help you become more relaxed and fall asleep more easily.
– Wear Loose Fitting Pajamas
When pajamas are too tight, they might become increasingly uncomfortable during menopause, as well as being warmer than loose fitting ones, which causes night sweats to be a bigger issue.
– Take the Television out of your Bedroom
When you can’t sleep, you turn on the TV to watch a movie or some series, and then you stay awake even longer and have less time for sleeping.
