Tips for a Better Night Sleep

The number of people experiencing some sort of insomnia is on the rise, and nothing can affect your health or work ethic more than not getting enough sleep. Here are some tips for helping you get a better night sleep.

Power Down

You may think that scrolling through Facebook quickly before you go to bed won’t do any harm, but in reality, the soft blue glow from your phone, tablet or laptop screen may be affecting your sleep. Because our brain associates blue with being awake –  due to the daytime sky – the screens trick it into thinking it’s time to be awake.

Watch Out for ‘Hidden Caffeine’

Having coffee in the morning is fine, but it is advised that to have a good night sleep you don’t drink anything heavily caffeinated after 12 noon. Even small amounts of caffeine in products such as chocolate can negatively impact your sleep later on.

Work Out

Getting regular exercise can help you sleep better – as long as you as you don’t exercise too close to bedtime.  After exercising you can get a burst of energy which may make it difficult to sleep. Make sure any vigorous exercise is completed about 3-4 hours before you need to be asleep.

Eat Right

Don’t eat heavy food or large meals too late at night as they overload the digestive system, which can affect how well you sleep. If you’re going to eat before bed, try and have a light snack such as cereal with milk or crackers and cheese.

Lower the Lights

Sitting in bright lighting will keep you more awake and alert. If you dim the lights or put on a side light instead of the main one this will help you wind down and get relaxed for going to sleep. It is suggested that you dim the lights 2-3 hours before you’re going to sleep. Lowering the lights makes the brain create a hormone called melatonin, which brings on sleep.

Keep Background Noise to a Minimum

Noise such as; a dripping tap, nearby traffic, or a loud barking dog can all have a negative impact on your sleep. It is recommended to use a fan, air conditioner, or white noise app to cancel out the other noises. Similarly, if you don’t want any noise at all you can try earplugs.

Set Your Body Clock

If you’ve just started a new routine or have somehow messed up your usual one and are feeling tired and sluggish, the best thing to do is help reset your body clock. This can be done by going to sleep and waking up at the same time for at least a couple of weeks – and yes this includes weekends – in time your body clock should naturally get used to your routine and you will end up being less tired.

Say No to Tobacco

Nicotine is a stimulant and can prevent you from falling asleep. Try not smoking before bed – or better yet try and kick the habit. This may be difficult at first but will help you feel a lot better in the long run.

The Dangers of Drinking Energy Juice

Whether it’s once in a blue moon, or you can’t start your day without it, almost everyone has tried some sort of energy drink. But what are the risks posed by drinking it excessively?

Here are just some of the dangers associated with drinking too much energy juice;

Cardiac Arrest

Energy drinks can be detrimental to anyone with an underlying heart condition. The powerful stimulant – caffeine – has been shown to cause more powerful heart contractions, which could be extremely harmful to people with certain heart conditions, especially if these conditions are unknown to them.

Headaches and Migraines

Drinking too much energy juice can cause severe headaches and migraines due to the effects of caffeine withdrawal symptoms.

Increased Anxiety

Caffeine can cause anxiety in those with 2 different genetic variations in their adenosine receptors as it makes them more prone to feeling increased anxiety when consuming energy drinks. When caffeine is taken in larger doses this can bring on full-blown panic attacks in some people.

Insomnia

People generally drink energy drinks to stay awake, when abused these can have adverse effects on sleeping patterns, and can cause some to experience disrupted sleep or not sleep altogether. Lack of sleep can impair functioning and reduce concentration, as well as having a negative impact on your health.

Type 2 Diabetes

Energy drinks have high sugar content, which makes them so appealing to younger demographics. This can eventually wear out the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, which eventually leads to type two diabetes.

Addiction

People can become extremely addicted to caffeinated products, with some not being able to function without them. This can lead to lack of functionality when energy juice is unavailable, and can cause financial stress from needing to buy these products daily.

Risky Behaviour

Research published in The Journal of American College Health showed that teenagers are more likely to take more dangerous risks when drinking caffeine.

Vomiting

Drinking too many energy drinks can lead to vomiting, which in turn can lead to dehydration. If this happens frequently it can also cause acid erosion of teeth and oesophagus.

High Blood Pressure

Energy drinks can elevate a person’s blood pressure due to caffeine in them, as well as the combination of different ingredients. A rise in blood pressure increases the risk of stroke and other health related problems.

Mixing energy drinks with alcohol

Due to an increase in rave culture, more and more people are ignoring the warnings and mixing energy juice with alcohol. Jägerbombs are a popular choice for ravers looking to dance the night away, with it being served in anything from a shot glass to a fishbowl. Energy drinks are a stimulant and alcohol is a depressive, mixing the two together can wreak havoc on a person’s emotional and physical health. This includes symptoms such as heart palpitations, problems sleeping, and feeling tense or agitated.  Energy drinks can also mask the effects of alcohol which can lead you to drink more than normal.

Trump vs Twitter

On Thursday people searching for Trump’s personal twitter account @realdonaldtrump were met with a message reading; “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” Twitter initially called it a ‘human error’ but later admitted that the account was infact deleted by a customer support employee on their last day. The account was deleted for 11 minutes before it was rectified.

Donald Trump is known for causing controversy on social media, with Twitter his undeniably favourite platform to spout nonsense and offend thousands.

Here are just a small number of Trump tweets that made people wish his account got deleted sooner, and permanently!

Barack Obama

Trump is no stranger to using social media to bash influential people and celebrities, and he has had a lot to say about Barack Obama over the years. Back in 2012 he tweeted complaining about Obama playing golf during his presidency, and again in 2014.

Fast forward to Trumps presidency and he has played golf 29 times in his first year alone, compared to Obama’s 22 times in his first year. I spy a hypocrite.

Terrorism

This tweet recently caused a lot of controversy, hours after one of the worst deadly mass shootings in American history, which killed 59 people and injured more than 500 in Las Vegas. Trump was branded “unsympathetic” and this was called a pathetic attempt at consoling America in such a dark hour.

People also noticed that nothing was mentioned about the attacker – a 64-year-old white male.  It is no secret that Trump loves to talk about terrorism.

Pretty much every time there is a terrorist attack Trump is quick to jump on twitter and let the world know exactly what he thinks. Back in September Teresa May was vocal about how unhelpful Trumps tweets were during an ongoing investigation on the Parsons Square terrorist attack in London, which saw 22 people injured.

                                 

This angered people even more when Trump tweeted about the Las Vegas shooting, as the word terrorist was not mentioned once. Why was this word not mentioned? Plain and simple, because the attacker was a white American. If his skin had been any other colour it would have been a completely different story. Just something to think about. Many people have noticed and have even went as far as calling him a racist (more than understandable with his previous track record and his father’s ties to the KKK.)

The Treatment of Women

Unsurprisingly, here is some more hypocrisy from The Donald. Back in 2013 Trump tweeted about the Anthony Weiner sexual abuse scandal.

Three short years later a tape was released of Trump making heinous and offensive remarks about “grabbing women by the [genitals]” and insisting it was OK to do so as he is “a star”. Following this came a whole string of sexual assault allegations including; kissing women on the mouth and inappropriately touching them without consent, making inappropriate comments about women’s bodies, and numerous other claims which span back decades.

Despite this people seemed to focus on Hilary and ‘those emails’ and Trump became president anyway.

 

A lot of tweets have come back to bite Trump, let’s just hope this one does too.
