Finding inner peace and balance amidst the chaos of the modern world seems like an impossible task. The stresses of daily life can easily knock us off balance, but once we learn how to remain centered, simplify our life and improve health, coping with life’s challenges becomes much more bearable. Here are a couple of easy steps you can take to make that happen.
1. Roll your head to ease limb pain.
Waking up in the middle of the night and feeling that “pins and needles” sensation in our arms is something many of us have experienced. This is because sometimes while sleeping, we roll over and inadvertently sleep on our arms or our hands, which causes an obstruction to the normal blood flow and leads to a decrease in the amount of oxygen being received by that body part.
To relieve this pain, rather than trying shake your arms or “wake them up,” try moving your head from side to side. This should help decrease the pain because nerves in the neck go straight down from your head to your arms.
2. At night go to the toilet with one eye closed.
Going to the toilet in the middle of the night after well having fallen asleep can sometimes wreak havoc on your sleep. This is because after waking up when you switch on the lights to go to the toilet the sudden bright light makes the brain to assume that it is morning time, and that switches off your sleep.
