Many of the people we see here at Natural Sleep Mattress, Atlanta’s luxury mattress store, say they have problems sleeping from time to time. We all have nights where we toss and turn as the worries of the day go ‘round and ‘round in our heads. Sleeping on a luxurious natural organic mattress is one way to improve the quality of your sleep.
Then are those who suffer from insomnia, which WebMD defines as “a sleep disorder that is characterized by difficulty falling and/or staying asleep.”
According to the health experts at WebMC, if you have at least one of the following symptoms, you may be dealing with insomnia:
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep
- Waking up too early in the morning
- Feeling tired upon waking
Tools for Coping with Insomnia
As AAST reports, Daniel Erichsen, MD, is changing the way we think about insomnia – one YouTube video at a time. As AAST, the community for sleep-care professionals, explains, “Patients would come into his sleep clinic in Oregon complaining of insomnia, and he would tell them the same thing: If you don’t try to sleep, eventually you will. But they weren’t always listening.”
“I got frustrated with just saying the same thing over and over,” Erichsen told AAST. “I thought, ‘There’s got to be a better way I can communicate with a lot of people at once.’”
Erichsen’s frustration combined with his desire to help people who can’t sleep inspired him to create Insomnia Insights, a YouTube channel where he could share informational videos.
Erichsen’s approach involves cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). As AAST explains, “It’s an approved method aimed at changing sleep habits from a behavioral perspective. It also focuses on sleep hygiene and education, empowering the patient to understand why they have insomnia.”
We haven’t personally tried Dr. Erichsen’s approach, so we can’t tell you about the experience. But we can help you find the best mattress in Atlanta for your unique sleep style.
