If you are among the countless number of people around the world who have troubles sleeping at night, or wake up more tired than when they went to sleep, this article is just for you.
Nevertheless, this does not mean that you need to take sleeping pills. What you should do instead is know that what causes these problems usually is interrupted breathing. If your breathing is interrupted you will not be able to relax, thus resulting in interrupted sleeping as well. This is mostly the case of sleep apnea, which if left untreated, it can be bad for your health.
This sleep disorder occurs in 2 different forms, such as:
– Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to signal the muscles to breathe as a result of respiratory control center instability.
– Obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs more frequently than the other type. In addition, it is typically triggered by an airway blockage.
CERTAIN FACTORS CAN INCREASE YOUR RISK OF SLEEP APNEA, INCLUDING:
- Nasal obstruction as a result of allergies, a deviated septum, or sinus issues
- Excess weight
- Having a small jaw bone, large tonsils, or a large tongue
- Having a large neck size (16 inches in women and 17 inches in men)
- Sex (men are more frequently affected by the condition)
- Age (being over the age of 40)
- A family history of sleep apnea
However, here is a simple and safe method to treat any sleep disorder and enhance your sleep. The only thing you should do is place one of these plants into your bedroom:
This plant is packed with relaxing properties, which are effective for relieving stress and anxiety. Moreover, these properties will provide relaxing atmosphere suitable for a good night’s sleep and will lower the heart rate.
