Hypertension, diabetes and insomnia compliment each other in such a manner that there is a keen competition among the three as to which one will overtake the other and in what proportions. In fact, they overlap one another conspiring together to slowly kill a person and insomnia is the instrument by which the other two accomplish the task in a murmuring, methodical manner.
Insomnia is habitual sleeplessness occasioned by a stressful situation primarily, though at times disorder nervous system roots it in. The fear of insomnia is worse than insomnia itself inasmuch as it is more harmful and dreamy with the victim always staying apprehensive. Strong emotions and fabulous brain-use drive to the insomniac situation in the speed of a jet, heightening blood vessels to the pinnacle of the brain defusing the nervous system to a vibrating syndrome with mental heaviness overtaking mental soundness.
A couple of years back, I was suffering from this dreaded disease for almost my decade-old hypertensive and diabetic dimension; but how it vanished of late is of miraculous antithesis which I recount here under in power points:
• I get up early at 03.50 AM.
• I start my morning walk at 04.30 AM on the widest road of my city drinking a glassful of clean and pure water and reach my home back at 06.00 AM.
• I take my breakfast at 07.00 AM sharp.
• My lunch time is 01.00 PM.
• In between breakfast and lunch, I take a cup of milk, two pieces of sugarless biscuits, a glass of lemon water and a glassful of permissible fruit extract.
• I take my morning sleep at 02.00 PM for one hour.
• I take my dinner at 08.00 AM, in between sipping a cup of tea, two glasses of lemon water, a bowlful of boiled vegetables and permissible fruits aplenty.
• I go to bed at 08.30 PM and sleep for about seven hours, raising my total sleeping time to 08.00 hours. My sleep is always long and deep. I never skip my sleeping time and never pre-pone or postpone it.
• I have cultivated this sleeping habit after over a year-long practice when I had to close my eyes and lie undisturbed feigning as if I was asleep.
• My living room and bed room are well ventilated.
• I take my bath whenever my sleep eludes me.
• In the earlier stage, I was taking sleeping pills, but not now as I have never made it a habit.
• I always try to avoid strong emotions and never get deterred by outside provocations.
I think by my regular practice and present habit, I have overcome insomnia which anyone else can do by regulating his diet, resorting to habitual exercise and making it a habit to sleep for eight hours, even if sleep eluded.
