Somnologist gives advice on overcoming autumn drowsiness

University Clinic somnologist Liliya Shagiakhmetova shares professional hints about dealing with the condition officially known as hypersomnia.

The most important thing, obviously, is to adhere to a sleep regimen, which is unique for every individual. “Try sleeping 7 to 8 hours each day, such a timeframe is optimal for your organism’s recovery,” she says. Many people also don’t know that you can actually sleep during mid-day even if you don’t have problems with night rest.

Another important aspect is fitness, which can benefit from physical activity, contrast morning shower, and nutritious and varied diet.

“Take a walk before sleep and satiate your body with oxygen, because the deficit of oxygen can be one of the reasons for daily drowsiness. A contrast shower in the morning can give a necessary boost of energy, extirpate tension and fatigue. Tea and coffee can help overcome sleepiness, but it’s better not to overconsume them,” advises Shagiakhmetova.

Natural coffee in reasonable quantities can be beneficial to those suffering from hypotension, drowsiness, or fatigue, but only in the mornings. Greet tea is also restorative and contains useful microelements. It’s also important to get rid of gadgets in 2 to 3 hours before going to sleep, says the doctor. Reading books and taking some me-time is good for calming oneself.

Autumn specifics, such as receding sunlight time, rainy weather, and grey surroundings, can contribute to seasonal depression. That’s why it’s crucial to spend more time outdoors, engage in walking and picnics, meet with friends and family, which are all tried and proven ways to be in a positive mood for a long time.
