Don’t Skip on Sleep This Holiday Season

Good, restful sleep may be hard to come by during the holidays. Amid all the memory-making with loved ones and prepping for get-togethers, we often sacrifice rest for the sake of getting everything done. But doing so poses risks to our health and happiness.

For many of us, sleep is the first habit to go in times of stress. But this can lead to fatigue, irritability and grogginess.

“With the holidays, most of us are shopping, going to parties, or hosting get-togethers” says Dr. Sarah Hussain, medical director of the sleep center at Kettering Health Miamisburg.

These 3 Fruits May Help You Sleep Better

It's long been known that your bedtime routine can have a huge impact on the quality of your sleep. Whether you drink tea, meditate or just settle into bed with a good book, we all have our own way of getting ready for a good night's sleep.

But could fruit be the missing piece in your pre-sleep preparations?

“We know that the Mediterranean Diet is associated with better sleep, so it follows that eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, along with whole grains and swapping unsaturated fats like olive oil and avocados, may also improve sleep,” says Melissa Keeney, RDN, a registered dietitian with Hartford HealthCare.

Can’t Sleep? Maybe It’s Time To Try A Human-Sized Dog Bed

Yuki Kinoshita and Noah Silverman were classmates at the University of British Columbia’s Vancouver School of Economics when they discovered in freshman year that they shared a passion for both entrepreneurship and…napping.

“Noah and I are big nappers,” says Kinoshita. “In college, we’d each find 25 minutes a day for a nap somewhere.”

But there was one problem. Cozy places to nap were hard to come by. Dorm-room mattresses are notoriously uncomfortable.

Q & A

Q: Without going to get tested, how can I tell if I have sleep apnea? Maybe I’m just a normal amount of tired and it’s not a thing I need to worry about- I don’t like going to see a doctor. (Steve W.)

A: Steve!, the only way to know if you have sleep apnea is with a sleep test.

Almost 50% of people who snore have apnea. If you snore pretty loud, you probably have sleep apnea.

The good news is that there are two different sleep tests available. The old style where you are kept overnight in a sleep lab and are hooked up to many wires. This has been known to be very expensive and uncomfortable. Today you can have a modern at home sleep test, which is much more comfy in the privacy of your own bedroom.

This test can be done for just a few hundred dollars. I strongly recommend that if you are a heavy snorer that you should choose to get one of these sleep tests, especially in the age of Covid.


Q: When I wake up, why do I forget my dreams so quickly? (Lily D.)

A: Lily, it depends who you ask. Psychiatrist Sigmund Freud thought that forgetting them was your mind’s way of protecting you from the repressed thoughts that fill your dreams. More likely, it’s because your mind gets busy and distracted with thoughts upon waking. You’re more concerned with what you’re going to wear to work that day and what you should pack for the kids’ lunches than why you dreamed about baking pumpkin pie for Napoleon and Marilyn Monroe.
