All of us love good sleep that keeps us full of energy all day long. Good news is that scientists have got some new insomnia treatments for insomniacs who are not responding to traditional therapy and healthy sleeping hygiene.
By the way, according to the newest studies about 40% of Americans have insomnia. Many of them tried these:
- sleep hygiene simple rules;
- sleeping pills;
- herbal supplements;
Still no result? Here they are!
Brand new insomnia treatments
According to the new studies, sound therapy may improve your sleep by balancing brain signals. It uses a neurotechnology, called high-resolution, relational, resonance based, electroencephalic mirroring, or HIRREM.
Another one is a wearable tracking device Thim that helps insomniacs to get longer, deeper, better sleep. It is worn on a finger and has wireless connection to a smartphone app that detects when the person is asleep or awake. The device gently wakes you up in the initial lightest sleep stage, vibrating. It helps your body to learn to fall asleep again faster, and increases sleep duration.
Celeb insomniacs (you’re not alone!)
New insomnia treatments may help celeb insomniacs too. Or may have helped some of them, if it wasn’t too late, lol. Anyway, let’s remember them.
“For a time I did not dream. My ball bearings somewhat rusted, I went round in waking circles, then on horizontal treks, one touchstone after another, nothing actually to touch. Not getting anywhere, I reverted to an old game, one invented long ago as an insomnia counterattack but also useful on long bus rides as a distraction from carsickness.”
“I think I must have a super adrenalin producing system. I didn’t feel tired. And the other thing about if you brood and brood and brood is to stick with doing something different. You won’t go to sleep … These days I find it very difficult actually to sleep more than four hours. I might just lay listening to what the news is.”
“If I can get six hours, I can get through the day. But because I want to have a career and also be an attentive mother, I tend to take a lot of breaks and deal with my kids, and then go back to work. In the recording studio, I never finish before 2 a.m., and then I have to get up at 7 a.m. for my kids. So there’s a lot of sleep deprivation.”
“I do a quick meditation before I get into bed, even if it’s just for five minutes. There are also some yoga poses that I’ve found to be quite helpful in relaxing my mind, even if it’s just a simple downward dog and some stretching. But the biggest thing is the electronics shutdown, ideally an hour before I turn off the lights.”
