Web Desk: Are you one of them who struggle to get out of bed in morning? Especially in winters, motivating yourself to get out of bed early in the morning becomes that much more difficult.
Struggling to leave the comfort of your mattress is a medical condition, called dysania. This disorder is defined by having trouble getting up in the morning, reported Deccanchronicle.
Many have a strong urge to go back to sleep after waking, dysania sufferers could stay in bed for days on end and develop anxiety at the thought to getting up. Dysania patients experience genuine panic at the thought of getting out of bed.
They need to sleep more than seven-to-eight hours.
Here are some of the recommendations.
- Go to bed and get up at the same time every day and make the bedroom peaceful by controlling its temperature, light and noise
- Do not sleep with pets
- Exercise regularly to relieve tension that builds up over the day. Avoid rigorous activity in the evenings as this can keep you awake
- Cut down on caffeine and opt for milky or herbal teas
- Do not overindulge in food too close to bedtime
- Do not smoke – nicotine is a stimulant
- Relax before bed with a warm bath, calm music or gentle yoga
- Get up if you cannot sleep and do something until you feel tired again
