How to Have a Goodnight Sleep when Experiencing Neurological Nighttime Panic Disorderfrom:
Everybody wants a goodnight’s sleep. After long hours of working, we tend to have a deep sleep because, if you don’t sleep well, your body reacts slower than usual and it makes it more difficult to think clearly.
Sleeping problems can be a caused by various physical disorders and sometimes from the medicines are being taken. Most people are awake at midnight because of panic attacks. These panic attacks (or nocturnal panic attacks) are caused by neurological mechanisms that are still unexplainable.
There are people who experience nighttime panic attacks, but are still able to return to sleep quite easily. However, if nighttime panic attacks are activating your anxiety and depression and this makes it difficult for you to return to sleep, consider the following:
• Have an index card near your bed. Put a title on it that says your nighttime panic attacks caused by neurological mechanism. Record every instance of an attack for reference.
• Think of something you can do to keep yourself occupied until you’re sleepy. After that, go back to bed and use your chosen exercise.
• When you’re experiencing a nighttime panic attack, rise up and wash your face to help you wake up completely. When you’re ready, read what you’ve written on your index card.
• Spend at least five to twenty minutes doing the chosen activity that will help your body relax. Your activity may be reading your favorite book, watching TV or drinking a glass of milk.
• If you eventually start feeling sleepy, go to your bed. If you feel a bit restless, do your relaxation techniques to help you fall asleep.
Listed above are some of the tips you can do when experiencing neurological nighttime panic disorder. However, if you want to totally avoid experiencing this disorder, here is what you can do:
• Set up a regular time you can follow for going to bed and getting up. Avoid losing sleep. If you’re going to bed and getting up at different times, you have to reset your body clock to have a regular schedule to follow.
• Your bed should be the place for sleeping and resting. If you’re fond of reading books or watching TV, do it in other parts of your house. This is because these two might be a cause for you to become restless and have neurological nocturnal panic attacks again in the middle of the night.
• Create a nice, comfortable atmosphere in your bedroom. It should be well ventilated, dark and noise free.
• Do not drink coffee or anything with caffeine before retiring to bed.
• Exercise regularly.
• Read a book about panic attacks and neurology mechanism to help you understand what you need to do when having an attack.
• Avoid using sleep medications.
• Avoid drinking alcohol.
By simply following these tips and suggestions, you’ll have a better chance of avoiding neurological panic attacks during your rest time. Having a regular check up regarding your neurology disorder can be helpful to avoid attacks. In addition it’ll also provide you with a good night’s sleep, the one thing we all need.
