Is this You?
Maybe you can relate to why people reach out to me for help. Some have already tried different advice and even medications, but they are still tossing and turning, or waking up in the middle of the night, struggling to get back to sleep.
A few people get frustrated and angry; at themselves, and their inability to solve the situation on their own.
Others get worried: “How long will this go on for?” “Will I ever be able to sleep well again?”
Well whatever your situation is like, I’m happy to tell you that it can be very easy to sleep well – once you know how.
The body is lacking in melatonin production and is not producing enough sleep hormones.
There are 50 hormones in the body, and 5 of them are needed for good sleep. Hormones are chemical messengers that act as messenger molecules in the body and are responsible for maintaining bodily functions such as:
- Hunger, appetite, and blood sugar
- Circadian rhythm and your sleep-wake cycle
- Sexual function
- Body temperature
- Cardiovascular function
- Muscle and tissue repair
The 5 hormones that are vital for a good night’s sleep and a fully functioning body are Melatonin, Progesterone, Estrogen, Testosterone and Cortisol.
The individual is having disruptive thoughts and emotions which are interfering with the rest and relaxation process.
If you feel that you are too busy to give yourself a proper break, or maybe you feel that you want to solve a few issues before you relax, then think again. Practicing relaxation techniques has many benefits, such as:

- Increasing blood flow to major muscles

- Boosting confidence to handle problems
The circadian rhythm is damaged by allowing the life style disturb the natural sleep cycle.
The circadian rhythm aligns our sleep and wakefulness with day and night9 to create a stable cycle of restorative rest that enables increased daytime activity.
Chronobiology is the study of circadian rhythms – the physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle. These natural processes respond primarily to light and dark and affect most living things, including animals, plants, and microbes.
Research shows that these internal clocks play a vital role in virtually all systems of the body:
- Metabolism and weight
- Blood sugar and cholesterol
- Mental health
- Bipolar disorder
- Neurodegenerative diseases like dementia.
- Immune system
