Sleep is integral to your physical and mental health. If you do not get enough sleep, you have a higher chance of feeling irritable, depressed, or anxious. A lack of sleep has also been linked to heart disease and weight gain.
It is important to follow a sleep routine that enables you to fall asleep easily. By removing technology from the bedroom and creating a comfortable sleeping environment, you can get the rest you need. Check out this video to learn more.

Are you tired of being tired? Changing your nightly routine could encourage better sleep patterns, allowing you to wake up feeling well-rested. Instead of wasting hours tossing on your bed, consider discontinuing these bad habits:
You might think that watching your favorite television show from bed is a good way to wind down at night. The truth is, though, that it could actually excite you too much to get a good night of sleep. The brightness of the screen and the sensory overload of your favorite show do not allow your brain to mellow out enough for you to fall asleep. Instead of turning on the TV, try reading before bed.
Using Your Phone or Computer
Just like the television, your smartphone or laptop should not have a place in your bedroom at night. These distractions keep your mind racing, which prevents you from relaxing before you try to go to sleep. Instead of plugging in your phone on the nightstand, try to place it across the room so it does not provide a distraction at night. You should also make an effort to store your computer in a different room where you are not tempted to use it.
Keeping Your Space Too Warm
If your room is too warm, your brain might not realize that your body is trying to fall asleep. Although you do not have to turn your bedroom into an ice box, you should lower the temperature enough so that it is cool and comfortable in your room.
If you still cannot sleep even after changing your nighttime routine, it might be time for a sleep study at Comfort Sleep. Whether you have sleep apnea or another sleep disorder, our sleep lab helps you get the rest your body needs to function. Visit our website or call (732) 649-6616 today to set up an appointment.

Is constant fatigue crippling your life? Sometimes it’s easy to understand the source of exhaustion. If you’ve been dealing with a lot of late nights at work or have a new baby, chances are you simply need a few extra hours on the pillow. But how can you explain your fatigue when you seem to be getting enough sleep? Other factors could explain your tiredness besides hours logged in bed.
Bone-crushing fatigue is one of depression’s most significant symptoms. In fact, if you’re suffering from depression, you are four times more likely to experience fatigue. If sadness or anxiety accompanies your tiredness, discuss your symptoms with your doctor. It may also be beneficial to aim for 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a few times a week, which is a natural mood enhancer.
Your exhaustion may be your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. An underactive thyroid gland, for instance, can often cause fatigue. You may even be experiencing fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. If your exhaustion is overwhelming and ever-present, despite how much sleep you get, visit your doctor for a complete medical overhaul. A simple medication or dietary tweak may be all that is needed to restore your energy.
Lack of Quality Sleep
You may think you’re sleeping eight hours per night, but are you really? If you have sleep apnea, you may be waking constantly throughout the night. With apnea, your wakeful intervals may be so short that you don’t remember them, but they add up to serious sleep deprivation. A sleep lab can study your sleep patterns to see if you’re actually getting enough restorative sleep.
Fatigue is an issue to take seriously. At Comfort Sleep, we can isolate the problem with your sleep and help you regain the energy you once had. Let our sleep lab help you overcome snoring, sleep apnea, and more. You can make an appointment by calling our New Jersey sleep center at (732) 649-6616.

Restless leg syndrome, or RLS, is a serious condition that can dramatically decrease your ability to get the sleep you need. RLS sufferers feel itching and burning sensations in their legs after periods of inactivity, which causes them to feel the need to move around. In fact, relief is usually only found in constant leg movement.
This video explains the symptoms and treatments for RLS. RLS symptoms often set in at night as the sufferer is trying to fall asleep. The need to move the legs to get a break from the burning and itching sensation means sleep is hard to achieve. Quitting cigarettes may help, as can some medications.
Could RLS be the cause of your fatigue? Find out with a sleep study at Comfort Sleep. Our sleep lab can help make a good night of rest a reality again. Call us at (732) 649-6616 and make an appointment to improve your sleep and get the rest you need.
