Welcome to Alive and Well right here on Santa Clarita’s Home Town Station, AM 1220 KHTS. Today we are speaking about sleep, and the lack of sleep.
We all need it but it does not always work out. The first thing we want to talk about is all you night owls who can not fall asleep before 2 am. It seems to be a fault of your natural rhythm. Instead of falling asleep at 10 pm, you have thought your body to reset and say that “well 10 pm is being reset to 2am.” How do you reset it? I think it can be rest for several different reasons. It could be things like depression, dementia, and drugs like beta blockers. All these things can reset the rhythm of your body. So about two hours before bed, there is a gland called the pineal gland in the brain that starts to slow you down. That may be why people always look for snacks at night and reach for ice cream, because they are slowing down. So why don’t you just go to bed instead?
I was told by a doctor that if you don’t slow down and pay attention to your body and go to bed, you will get that “second wind” and stay up for a wile. It’s the same that if you are hungry and you don’t eat, then wait for a long time. You will not be hungry, it is from your body resetting its self. All things can be reset, but sleep is something that you need reset from the right way. Same as food. But, if you are hungry, take a glass of water and take a walk, especially if you are trying to louse weight.
We will be back with more information on how to get back to sleep. Right here on your Hometown Station, am 1220 KHTS.
