Why Do We Have Sleep Disturbances
WE don’t need medicated to stay asleep
I have Studied many expert doctors and their reasoning about why we think we can’t sleep well throughout the night and why we don’t need medication for this “Problem”. If they are experts, why can’t they agree on a simple problem?
There are several schools of thought on how much sleep we need, and why we awaken in the night.
- Insomnia is the wrong name for our late night wakening
- With the new high resolution cameras, we can now watch what our brains do with themselves–As we sleep. We now find that our bodies and brains detox and heal themselves as we sleep. During sleep our brains wring themselves out like a giant sponge. The “Garbage” is drained off and sent to the great recycling bin of our stomachs.
- Primitive people went to bed at sunset and got up at sunrise; this was before artificial light. Our brains and bodies are still programed for this routine
- The normal routine is to sleep 4 to 5 hours hours and then be awake for an hour.
- Dreams can happen during any sleep period; and they help us adjust to life.
Midnight awakening is normal and is not a disease
Our first awakening gives our mind a chance to reminisce about the past day’s happenings, and lets us get ready for tomorrow’s events. This is the time to sort through things that we didn’t have a chance to fully comprehend as the busy world moved quickly past. This is the time that my late father-in-law said he did his best stock market thinking. Creative writers might start at this time and write all night, getting much done. This is also a great time for human mating as both partners are rested .
The Second Sleep-Period of 2 or 3 Hours Now Takes Place
We now sleep two or three hours and awaken again for the day’s activities. We should now be fully rested and vibrant.
