    Sleep when recovering from illness or injury – injury solicitors in Houghton-le-Spring

    When you are recovering from an illness or injury, it can be difficult to get to sleep at night. For a start it is likely you will be spending most of your time resting, which can actually make it more difficult for the body to switch off at night, as it hasn’t had the stimulation it needs during the day. You are also likely to be in pain, and this can make it difficult to drift off to sleep, and may also cause you to wake up frequently throughout the night. Here are some tips on how to get to sleep and stay asleep when your body is not yet back to normal.

    Speak to your doctor

    If you are finding it truly difficult or impossible to get to sleep night after night then you should get in contact with your doctor and explain the situation. Not sleeping for long periods of time can make you more ill than you already are, and impede your healing process. The doctor will be able to prescribe you with medication to ease the pain and help you sleep, which is the best way for you to solve your problem altogether.

    Stay out of bed

    Try to only get into bed when you are ready to go to sleep. Using your bed for activities such as watching television, eating and reading can make it a place that your mind cannot switch off in. It is best that you use a different room to rest in, and only use your bed for sleep.

    Stay awake all day

    Even if you have not had very much sleep, try not to nap during the day as this can make it more difficult to get to sleep at night, and get your sleep pattern even more confused. If you are tired enough at the end of the day then you should be able to fall asleep much easier.
