Hi and welcome to findsleephere.com.
I’m here because I have had many problems sleeping. I share this problems with millions of other people like yourself. If you’re here looking for information on identifying your sleep problems, what causes them, and how to get the sleep you need, then I welcome you. I want to help you find the answers you need. My posts will cover different topics related to sleep and the methods, tools and options available to help find the right solution for you.
At times I may relate my sleeping experiences in my posts to help illustrate to my readers and to let them know they are not alone. Learning about your sleep problems is the first step to knowing you don’t have to go without sleep.
Sleepless Times and a Busy Work life
Years ago I started a side business along with my day job. Soon I was working from 2 AM until 10 at night. This started a chain of events where I didn’t allow myself enough sleep or kept an erratic sleep schedule from juggling work and life. I could not get enough quality sleep to feel well rested. I could not concentrate at work and would be constantly drowsy and often struggle to stay awake driving. Although I would return to working only one job and to a regular schedule, my body and my mind struggled to get back to normal.
My wife was a manager of a fast food restaurant with an ever changing schedule. She would work from 2 AM until late in the day and would still get calls into the late night with problems she needed to solve to keep her store running smoothly. That didn’t help her sleep well either.
After some years my wife had me bring up my sleep problems with my doctor because she said I would stop breathing at night. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and that brought a whole new dimension to trying to feel rested and energized each day. She talked with her doctor as well and he gave recommendations to help her sleep as she had been unable to get good sleep because of her busy schedule. We had to learn why we couldn’t get to sleep or couldn’t stay asleep. That’s when we found some answers.
The More You Know
A world full of sleepy people doesn’t make for a good social life. Our relationships improved when we weren’t so tired all the time because our time together had a better quality . We could actually stay up and entertain friends as well. Maybe we could all benefit from better social time with our family and friends.
So now I try to inform other people about known sleep problems. This helps my family as well because I learn more each day and the more you know the better you can get the right solution for you. If I learn a way that helps other people sleep then it might be part of the solution to help me sleep. As simple as that.
Better Sleep for a Better You
Better sleep can improve your performance at work with the ability to think more clearly and take quicker action because you are more alert and feel better. It improves our health and immune system. And in my life it definitely increases the amount of quality time I have in my day to spend with family and friends. I watch for news and developments as well as time tested ways to improve the quality of my sleep. I hope they can help you too.
All the best,
