Sleep Disturbances

24 Oct

Your best bet is healthy sleep habits, such as setting a regular bedtime and, at least an hour before bedtime, dimming the lights and turning off electronic devices.

Some evidence suggests that melatonin, one of the most widely used natural products in the U.S., many help adults with specific kinds of sleep problems, such as those related to jet lag or shift work.

But for other sleep problems, such as insomnia, melatonin’s benefits have been shown to be minor at best: It might help you sleep just 8 additional minutes and could leave you groggy the next day. Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-1), which focuses on changing sleep-disrupting habits, might even be more effective and safer for insomnia than prescription sleep drugs or melatonin.
