7 things your body is trying to tell you when you can't fall asleep

7 things your body is trying to tell you when you can't fall asleep

Our body communicates with us constantly, and expresses its discomfort by not letting us sleep.

Midnight minus ten. In five hours and forty minutes it will necessarily have to start again that illogical cycle that is our day. Wake up early, work, lunch break with the funnel, still office, or factory, or shop, romantic dinner or pizza delivery, plaid and TV series or beer with friends.

This is only the draft of our life. In the midst of all this, in a random and undefined space, physical activity, hobbies and study should also be placed.
Furthermore, for parents with one or more children, this illogical overlapping of obligations and duties must be set against those of the children. School, homework, pool, and whoever has it, the more you put it.

In summary, once midnight strikes, our body should claim pity and "die" on the bed for a few hours, to recover the energy lost during the day.
Yet the eyes do not close.

There are a myriad of reasons that explain insomnia, or the difficulty in falling asleep. Normally, an adult person should take between five and ten minutes to let go in the arms of Morpheus. Punctually, unfortunately, our brain decides to completely cancel the "off" option, leaving us prey to the darkness, but with eyes wide open like nocturnal birds of prey.

This is simply the most immediate way the body has to communicate something to us. Even if we don't realize it, our body constantly talks to us. Nerves, muscles, hormones and sensations: in every second, we receive a signal, which serves to indicate a problem, an unresolved question, a thought too many.

Those that follow, therefore, are only some practical suggestions to resolve adequately to the caller without answer of our organism. The goal, of course, can only be one: falling asleep quickly.

  • Avoid physical activity before going to sleep
    "The stressful rhythms of work clog your life like a tap, but don't you know how to give up physical activity?" This is a much more popular question than you might think. Often, body lovers decide to devote themselves to the gym in the evening. Unfortunately for them, the first victim of this sculptural physical craze is our sleep, because the great adrenaline developed during the training makes it impossible for them to arrive in a timely manner. Paradoxically, this infernal cycle, instead of reinforcing, does nothing but weaken our body, leaving us more exposed to seasonal ailments and with a perennial sense of fatigue.
    Still convinced that the ideal time for the gym is at 10pm, when there is only you and the caretaker in the weight room?
  • Avoid smartphone light
    If you are reading this article, it is inevitable that you are a true social employee. The light of your mobile phones, however, has the same effect as solar light, making it extremely harmful to our sleep. Experts advise turning off all electronic devices at least a couple of hours before going to bed, so as to ideally reconcile our biological rhythm with the circadian rhythm. If even Cristiano Ronaldo follows this golden rule, maybe you'd better do it too.
  • Binge at dinner or eat just before going to sleep
    Do you believe that the post-binge Christmas Christmas break can be repeated 365 days a year?
    You're wrong, and big, too. In fact, food is one of the main stimulators of our body. Even digesting is an action that is performed by the muscles. Any kind of physical activity, as we have already seen, disturbs and neatly removes the sweet refreshment hour. Forget the abundant dinners and stick to a menu made of light and complete meals, to finish at least three hours before going to bed under the covers.
  • "Coffee? For me deca, thank you "
    In addition to physical stimulators, even food stimulators can be detrimental to our sleep. The first, among these, is caffeine, one of the essential and essential foods for any self-respecting Italian. The mocha from four in the morning is a religion for almost all the inhabitants of the Belpaese, and during the day, in Italy, as many coffees are consumed as they drink in the rest of the European continent. Our body, however, takes several hours to dispose of the caffeine circulating in our body, and taking a coffee, from 14.00 onwards, risks to inevitably postpone the time of our withdrawal.
    Try to find ways to enjoy a healthy break, without giving up the main one: decaffeinated coffee and black tea can be excellent substitutes.
  • Lie down with the window open
    No, this is not an illogical advice to encourage the work of apartment mice. In fact, body temperature is one of the main factors that influence the regular rhythm of our sleep. An excessive measure, in fact, tends to make us sleep badly or forces us to wake up several times in the middle of the night in search of refreshment. During the night it is advisable to keep the radiators turned off in winter and the window open in summer. In this way, it will be possible to properly adjust your rest.
  • Problems? Out of bed!
    Yes, it's much easier said than done. The night, generally, is that moment in which the account of the day just passed is made, passing hours to racket, often uselessly, for the most varied problems. Make sure you keep your thoughts and worries away from your pillows, because a peaceful mind reconciles restful sleep. The next day, therefore, you will have all the energy you need to break down any seemingly insurmountable wall.
  • Sleep disorder: the real one
    If you follow the directions listed above to the letter, then yours could actually be a sleep disorder. In this case there are no jokes, lightness or advice from the grandmother that they take. The only solution is to contact your doctor, so that you can decide together how to deal with this problem.
