HAPPY WORLD SLEEP DAY TO ALL CHRONIC PAIN SUFFERERS…

World Sleep Day is an annual event, intended to be a celebration of sleep and a call to action on important issues related to sleep, including medicine, education, social aspects and driving. It is organized by the World Sleep Day Committee of World Sleep Society (founded by WASM and WSF) and aims to lessen the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders. World Sleep Day is held the Friday before Spring Vernal Equinox of each year.

The holiday aims to emphasize the importance of sleep and raise awareness about sleep disorders through fun events around the globe.

According to WikiHow the best way to enjoy World Sleep Day is to –

  1. Choose if you want to sleep alone, with someone else, or with something else.Get your pet to cuddle with you while you take a nap; if the pet escapes, you can always substitute them for a stuffed animal.
  2. Determine how long you wish to “celebrate”. Is this going to be a power nap because you have work for the day, a cat nap for a few hours, or quality time with your pillow for the entire day? Don’t tell yourself that you need to wake up and do something productive instead of sleeping. If you can’t sleep, just stay in bed all day!
  3. Dress appropriately. The more comfortable you are, the better sleep you’ll have. Be sure to count each layer of blanket material as one layer in general
  4. Sprawl out on a bed, sofa, hammock, or any comfortable setting. This is a day to be lazy, so however you position yourself is up to you. You can have your feet propped up on the sofa’s arm rest instead of squishing yourself on the cushions, have a foot planted on the ground if you are in a hammock so you can rock back and forth while going to sleep.
  5. See if the sleep that you got for the day made a difference. Ask yourself if you feel more refreshed than before today. Sleep is healthy for people, as it lowers stress and refreshes the body for the next day.

It could also be a time to change your mattress so why not take advantage of the discount on N:Rem mattress’s by simply adding this code ‘BACKPAINBLOG’ at check out to get £30 off your order.

WHY IS SLEEP SO IMPORTANT FOR FIBROMYALGIA SUFFERERS?…FREE E.BOOK DOWNLOAD…

This post is a guest post from Kathryn O’Hara at N:Rem Sleep System...

When we’re sleeping, our brains are actively working to process the information from the day in to our long-term and short-term memory. Good sleep not only helps our bodies and minds to rest and repair, it allows us to perform better too.

What happens when you sleep with Fibromyalgia?

Many Fibromyalgia sufferers say they feel lucky if they reach 5 hours’ sleep a night. Do you ever find yourself stuck in a vicious cycle? Pain makes it difficult to sleep, but sleep deprivation means the body can not repair itself – making the pain worse.

Lack of sleep also causes stress, lack of coordination and agility, weight gain and poor judgement. The last thing that a Fibromyalgia sufferer needs.

How to drift in to a restful slumber:

Resist the afternoon caffeine rush:

It will take your body up to 7 hours to process only half of the caffeine in your cup of coffee. We know it keeps us awake, so try to make your last caffeinated drink before 2pm to give your body chance to process it before you hit the hay.

Set a bedtime:

Train your body to feel tired and awake at the desired times by going to bed at the same time every night, even at the weekend. It will help you to fall asleep faster, sleep for longer, and wake feeling more refreshed.

Keep your cool:

When you sleep, your body temperature naturally drops. Keeping your bedroom cool (not cold) should help to ease you in to a deep sleep. The ideal temperature is between 18-21C.

Ditch the screens:

Your body will not produce enough melatonin (sleep hormone) to help you sleep if your brain is stimulated by the blue light emitted from your phones, laptops and TV screens. Stop using electronics at least an hour before bed. A good book and some soothing music is a far better option.
