I have struggled with insomnia for many years.
- I always envied people who could fall asleep easily and stay asleep throughout the night, but my insomnia has affected me in many ways.
I am constantly exhausted, always yawning, I am not as focused as I would like to be, and sometimes I need to nap in the middle of the afternoon to function. I have tried many remedies such as sleep studies, melatonin, yoga, meditation, and even prescription meds. I finally decided to do some more research on my own. I found a group on an online forum and someone proposed purchasing a portable cooling system to put in my home office to help me sleep. It is important that the temperature is cool at night in your room because your body naturally drops its core temperature while sleeping. Dropping the temperature in your house can help your body start to cool down which will help you get to sleep faster and stay asleep. I was desperate at this point so I started to look for different portable cooling systems for sale. I have a central air conditioner in our home, but so far that has not helped me sleep well. I found a portable cooling system that has glowing reviews and is small enough to fit near our bed. I bought the portable cooling system and decided to give it a try, and the insomnia support group stated that it may take a few nights before you adjust to the portable cooling system as well as get a great night’s sleep, but by the third night, I fell asleep within 15 minutes of laying down as well as slept for many hours straight. I could not believe how rested I felt in the afternoon.
