Sleeplessness is one of the most common issues caused by menopause. This menopausal symptom can put a miserable start to anybody’s day.
Sleeplessness during menopause is mainly caused by the changing hormone levels in the body, especially the decrease in estrogen. However, there are different “triggers” that can be the reason for a sleepless night.
The best is to avoid these triggers and take countermeasures to ensure a better night’s rest. Here are 10 top tips for dealing with menopausal sleeplessness…
Get Enough Exercise
At least 30 minutes of exercise, 5 times a week is recommended. This should contain a mixture of cardio and resistance training.
Many people think that the closer this is done to bedtime, the more tired they will be and the better they will sleep. This is not the case, however. The time before bed should be spent relaxing and winding down. Exercise should be completed at least 3 hours before bedtime.
Get Into a Routine
It is vital to get into a routine of going to bed at the same time each night, and waking up at the same time every morning. But take it further – set a schedule for meals, exercise, taking medication, and even downtime. It helps adjust the body’s internal clock.
Resist the Urge to Take a Nap
For people who are in the habit of taking an afternoon nap, this can be a tough one. But napping can be the cause of many sleepless nights. Rather power through the day and get a good night’s rest.
Caffeine is the go-to for staying awake during the day. However, it should be avoided as far as possible, especially in the hours leading up to bedtime. A better option is decaffeinated coffee, tea without caffeine, or better yet – water.
Watch What You Eat
Being at a healthy body weight is great for your overall health. It is also great to help fight sleeplessness. Keep clear of food that is high in sugar, contains refined carbohydrates, and spicy food. Follow a balanced diet like this one in the FREE Manna Diet e-book.
Wear Loose Fitting Pajamas
Pajamas that fit too tightly and those that are made from synthetic fabrics tend to increase menopausal night sweats – and that means more sleepless nights.
Take the T.V. and other distractions out of your room
It might seem like a good way to relax before bed, but watching television before sleeping actually decreases the quality of sleep. This happens because watching T.V. decreases the body’s production of melatonin, which is a chemical that helps regulate sleep.
Relax Before Bedtime
Having established that watching television is not the best way to relax before going to bed, rather read a book or do something else that relaxes you without exciting your mind too much.
Drink a cup of chamomile tea
Chamomile is a natural sleep-inducer. A nice warm cup of this can make falling asleep a lot easier.
