Random Tip Of The Day - A Tip on How to Feel Better When You Wake Up in the Morning

Sleeping Well At Night

I don't know about everyone else but sometime ago I would quite often awaken in the morning and ponder why I felt so terrible. I mean physically.

I had not been going to bed late and I had not been wake up early, after. I had not been out drinking all night. I had not eaten five burgers just before bed. I had brushed my teeth before bed. I had drunk plenty of water throughout the day.... So what was it!?

I took myself off to the doctor. It had to be diabetes. I woke up thirsty you see.. It wasn't. What could it be?

I took myself to the dentist so he (my dentist is a man you see) could have a look under my bonnet and see if there was a problem.. EUREKA! I needed a filling in my wisdom tooth "Ohhhh..." my dentist said, "This goes quite deep... it has been here a while I am afraid.." I didn't tell him that he failed to spot it when I visited him three months earlier...

I was pretty sure I had found the problem. I went off to bed that night and crossed my fingers for the morning. I woke up feeling like crap, and the next day.. and the one after... and the one after that.. "Darn! what IS IT!!!?!" I thought

The Random Tip For Today

This tip today, so I have been told, is a tip that mothers tell their children. I remember my mum telling me something similar. The problem is, she told me a whole lot of other things that were not logical or rational. So I have my reasons for not trying it out for a while. A collection of animals waiting outside my window that were happily happy to wake me up before any rational human being was ready., being one of them.

Leaving a window open while you sleep is very good for feeling great in the morning. Before you say it, I know. We do not all live in nice areas where you would be happy to leave a window open. We all will suffer from flying nasties that want to come and, "suk zee blot".

I normal open the window in my bedroom and turn all the lights off that would leak light into the room. I would also close the door that connects to the lounge, which I and most others will be in before bed. This way air spreads about the flat/house refreshing it. This fresh air is beneficial to a good nights sleep and it is needed. If you can keep it open, being on a top or higher floor or not having a noisy street outside, I would try it out. If you cannot for whatever reason, then don't. But do try this out.. Maybe not in winter though! The all night thing at least!

Fresh and new air is ALWAYS better.

I don't know where the reader of this live. I do know that old air is not good and that new air or fresh air is always good, though. Evening air is generally better as less people are working and less people are driving. Not to mention the sun is done and not creating natural releases, that are problems all the same.

You could invest in an air filter. I used to live in London and I would sleep with one on as I lived very close to a busy road. I would let the fresh air in in the mid-evening, around 8ish and then close my window about half an hour before bed. The noise from the road was too much to get to sleep with, and then stay asleep.

Having no fresh air while you sleep is one of the reasons why you might be feeling the way you do in the morning (if you have explored the points I have mentioned above) and the airflow is not great where you sleep. You will not be getting enough fresh air.

The good news is, there is enough combination air to keep you alive but the bad news is that you spend, on average eight hours, in one room and this is the reason for your headache. Air, like water is what the body uses to detox. When we sleep this is when the body works to detox itself. If the body does not have the right quantities of the right resources (air and water) it cannot detox like it wants to (the water comes from being hydrated rather than drinking lots before bed)

You could try ventilation to see how it helps your morning "groan". I know it helped me a lot! Make sure it is FRESH air though!

It is also worth mention nutrition..

An imbalance of carbohydrates and protein can also cause headaches. This can happen throughout the day and of course, first thing in the morning.

While you are sleep and rest during the night, your body will perform its maintenance. Detoxing and building/repairing while you are still. However, if you do not have the right collection of building materials and of course, good build materials - Good protein, slow release carbohydrates and helpful fats.. the body's task is going to be hindered and the work will not go smoothly.

Make sure you are eating enough protein to last through the night and be sure the protein source you have is a good one..

A take away burger or processed meat is not a very good source of protein.. Some tinned tuna (depending where you get it..) or a chicken breast with brown seeded bread is good. If you are vegetarian, plain soya yoghurt has nearly 5 times the protein compared to carbohydrates and it also has a higher in protein content and less carbohydrates to dairy yoghurt..

Also, while we are at it...Broccoli also has a higher calcium content milk.

I hope things get better for you. I have also found that food plays a big role in it, or rather, diet. Good luck.
