Summertime Sleep Schedules for Kids

Three ways to ensure summer vacation doesn’t negatively impact your child’s sleep In my clinical practice parents often complain about how difficult it can be to maintain a consistent sleep schedule in the summer. With long days, children will often wake early with the sun, and few children want to go to bed when it is still light out (especially when they could be playing outside!). It is very easy to get off schedule during the summer without the…

How To Sleep With A Snorer

Does your partner keep you awake all night with noisy breathing? These tips may help you get a better night’s rest. You set your bedroom thermostat to the perfect cool temperature, put fresh linens on your bed, and turned off all your electronics an hour ago. But for many people, there’s one thing about their sleep environment that they can’t control: the noise of a partner’s snoring. If this sounds like your situation and your sleep quality is suffering…

Is Sleep Apnea Affecting Your Daily Life?

Even though sleep apnea is a nighttime condition, it’s not uncommon to experience symptoms during waking hours, too. Check out these signs that you could be overlooking. The loud gasp-like breathing that accompanies obstructive sleep apnea may seem impossible to miss, but ironically people often aren’t aware they have the condition. In fact, a partner who shares the bed is likely to pick up on the problem first, since detecting your own noisy snoring is virtually impossible. But

Use Your 5 Senses to Set Yourself Up For Better Sleep

If you often have trouble falling asleep at night, it’s a good idea to assess whether your bedroom is the relaxing sleep sanctuary that you want it to be. Is it dark enough? Quiet enough?

Ease Heartburn at Bedtime

The fiery feeling of heartburn isn’t just uncomfortable. If you experience it regularly at night—as up to 75% of people who have frequent heartburn do—it could mess with your sleep and leave you exhausted. A National Sleep Foundation poll found that adults who have bedtime heartburn are more likely to have sleep issues such as insomnia, daytime sleepiness, and restless leg syndrome. That burning sensation that you experience with heartburn is due to stomach acid flowing back up the…

Protect Your Baby From SIDS and Other Sleeping Injuries

Nothing is scarier to parents than the idea that something can happen to their baby while he or she is asleep. Unfortunately, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (or SIDS) happens every year to 1,500 infants. It’s usually blamed on something interfering with a baby’s breathing while he or she is asleep. There are also other injuries that can happen after you put your baby to sleep. In fact, 26 babies are injured every day by their crib—usually from…

Why Do Some People Talk In Their Sleep?

Though it’s somewhat mysterious, sleep talking (a.k.a. somniloquy) is a common phenomenon. About half of kids talk in their sleep at least once a year (and less than 10% do it every day). And roughly 67% of adults talk in their sleep at least once every three months. It often runs in families and tends to be more common among men. Sleep talking can vary considerably in its content—ranging from gibberish or mumbling to nonsensical outbursts to full, coherent sentences. Sometimes it may…

Why Caregivers Should Focus on Better Sleep

Being a caregiver, whether for an aging parent or another loved one, has its ups and downs. While most caregivers view their role as a positive experience, it can be a challenge for them to manage their own wellbeing while devoting so much time to caring for someone else. Not only can your physical health take a hit, but your sleep can, too. In fact, more than one-fifth of caregivers say that they are exhausted when they go to bed…

Sleep Better with the Sniffles

One of the easiest ways to dodge a cold is to sleep. People who sleep fewer than five or six hours a night are four times as likely to come down with a cold, compared with people who get at least seven hours of shuteye nightly. But, of course, even the best sleepers aren’t totally immune to all germs. And if you do catch a bug, your sleep is likely to suffer. The good news: If a stuffy nose…
