Frequenty Asked Questions

Sleep counselling is for patients dealing with insomnia or any sleep pattern issues. This therapy helps you to understand the aspect of psychology aspect of sleep. Consistent sleep counselling sessions provide a psychological tool and techniques that improve your sleep pattern, behaviours and thoughts.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most effective approach to deal with insomnia and help you manage your negative thoughts and actions that unstable your sleep pattern. CBT is the world's best psychologist's most widely used approach and is backed by proven research. CBT is more helpful as compared to medication because it improves sleep patterns.

Several conditions of sleep disorders include insomnia, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy and sleep apnea. Sleep therapy is useful for managing disorders that improve your sleep pattern, thoughts and behaviours.

What is the Importance of Sleep?

To live a healthy and wholesome life, you must also focus on your sleep. It plays a role in disease prevention, and lack of quality sleep affects your overall mental health.

These are the most prominent mental conditions that happen due to sleep disorders.

Concentration and Cognition Issues

When you are sleep deprived, it is harder for your brain to function optimally. As a result, it is harder for people to concentrate. It also poses cognition and memory issues.

Heart Health

During sleep, your heart finally gets to catch a break, which is important for its proper functioning. Lack of sleep then has grave implications for your heart and thus increases the risk of heart disease.

Circulatory Health

Alongside endangering the heart, lack of sleep can also cause issues with the circulatory system as well, leading to problems like high blood pressure and increased risk of stroke.

Disrupts Hormones

Hormones are chemicals that moderate different and important processes around the body. Disruption in the secretion of hormones then upsets very many processes in the body.

Not getting sufficient sleep, or not sleeping on time, can lead to imbalance in the hormone levels and the resultant plethora of problems.

Depression

People who do not get sufficient and quality shuteye also have a higher risk of depression, a mental illness that causes extreme blues.

Diabetes

There is also a higher risk of type 2 diabetes in people who face sleep problems.

Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is extremely bad for health. It can lead to a higher risk of mental and physical issues including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, etc.

Lowered Immunity

Insufficient sleep can also compromise immune functionality, leading to greater instances of illnesses.

Poor Reflexes

Insufficient sleep also causes people to feel groggy, and thus their reflexes are compromised. There is also a higher risk of accidents then.

Risk of Obesity

Obesity is not just a disease in of itself, but it is a harbinger of other health problems as well. Obese people also tend to be ostracized by society, so their mental health is also severely affected.

Insufficient or poor-quality sleep increases the risk of obesity by disrupting hormones, increasing consumption of food, decreasing ability of the body to respond to insulin, and greater risk of metabolic issues.

What Factors Can Disrupt Your Sleep?

Knowing and mitigating the factors that disrupt your sleep is important for preventing sleep-related problems. Some factors to watch out for include:

What Are Some Tips for Sleeping Better?

Sleeping better is possible if you are committed to making the correct lifestyle choices. Some helpful better sleeping habits and tips include:

Avoid Naps

Eat and Exercise Early

Do not eat heavy dinners or take caffeine before bedtime. Also, exercise during the day, not at night.

Get Sunlight

Exposure to the early morning sun –think sunrise time – and in the evening, around sunset, helps in regulating your circadian rhythm.

Good Alarm Clock

If you have trouble waking up early, get a good alarm clock.

Make Bed Sacred

Your brain should only associate your bed with sleeping or romance, so, all activities otherwise should not be done in bed.

Practice a Good Sleep Schedule

Try to sleep early and wake up early too. Stick to the fixed time so your body is trained accordingly.

Screen Time

Limit your screen time after evening, and do not use them in bed.

Yoga

There are many yoga poses for sleeping better and relaxation that are helpful as well.

Calm Your Mind

Stress and anxiety can interfere with your sleep. If the issues are disruptive and chronic, seek help from experts at Fitcy Health.

Why is Sleeping at Night Better than Day?

Our bodies have a circadian clock, an internal rhythm that mimics the movement of the planet. It calls for waking up with light and falling asleep at night.

The circadian rhythm also then regulates different processes around the body, including the secretion of hormones. If you disrupt this problem by sleeping during the day and being awake at night, you upset the natural system.

Sleeping on Which Side is Better?

A common query is whether sleeping on the right is good or is left side better. The evidence so far suggests there are more benefits to sleeping on your left, as it then exerts less pressure on your organs.

However, better sleeping positions are also contingent on your health conditions and comfort level.

Which side should you sleep on for better digestion?
The best sleeping position for better digestion is sleeping on your left side. It allows for better bowel movements and offers greater ease for the digestive system as well.

Why is Sleeping on the Left Side Better for Acid Reflux?

The better sleeping position for those suffering from acid reflux or GERD is sleeping on the left.

Why Sleeping on the Left Side is Better When Being Pregnant?

A better sleeping direction for pregnant women would be on their left side, with their knees bent. It eases the pressure from the baby bump and allows for better circulation.

Which is Better Sleeping With or Without a Pillow?

If you sleep on your front, then you should avoid a pillow, so your spine remains neutral. If you sleep on your back or the side, you should use a good pillow.

How to Get a Better Posture While Sleeping?

Sleeping position for better posture is contingent on your condition. If you are experiencing lower backache or neck pain, you should sleep on your side with a pillow wedged between your knees.

Overall, sleeping for better posture entails sleeping on your back. It allows your spine to be aligned and prevents neck pain and backache.

How to Breathe Better while Sleeping?

While most people can breathe all right when asleep, those suffering from respiratory problems and sleep apnea might require some assistance. The best sleeping position for better breathing is on the side, not the back. You can also put pillows on the side to prevent your body from rolling back.

Another sleeping position for better breathing includes sleeping with your head elevated; just prop a pillow under your head.

How to Check if You Are Getting Sufficient and Quality Sleep?

Some gauges can help you determine if you are getting enough sleep, or if you need expert intervention. These include:

Time to Sleep

It should be under 30 minutes.

Sleeping Span

Adults under 65 years should get seven to nine hours of sleep.

Disrupted Sleep

You should ideally sleep for a continuous period but if you wake up, you should go back to sleep in around 20 minutes.

Daytime Drowsiness

When you get enough sleep at night, you should not be feeling drowsy during the day. When you get enough sleep at night, you should not be feeling drowsy during the day.

Where to Get Help for Sleeping Better?

According to Khaleej Times, 30% of the UAE residents suffer from insomnia at some point in their lives, so sleep problems are very prevalent. Hence, it is vital that everyone actively works toward making requisite lifestyle changes for promoting better sleep. However, at times, physical and mental health problems can get in the way.

So, make sure you contact your physician and report to them the health issues that are disrupting your sleep.

However, sleep issues can also be caused by poor mental health. So, to sleep better, you should get help from Fitcy Health. Through online sessions, qualified and experienced mental health professionals in Dubai can guide you to not just sleep better, but remedy underlying mental health problems causing the issue to begin with.
