How can we not ‘white night’ before the big day?
Before the big day, many people will feel annoyed by late-day calls to handle unfinished business, sometimes calls come in the middle of the night.
Vsevolod Polotsky, professor of medicine and director of sleep research at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, points to measures to deal with this situation.
The first is not to turn on the light, try to calm down, end the conversation immediately and go back to bed.
Next, if you can’t get back to sleep within 10 minutes, he recommends going to another room, turning on the dim lights and reading a boring book.
At this time, people should not use electronic devices, because they emit blue light that can wake you completely.
Professor Polotsky also discourages checking emails, messages, not washing dishes or going out of the house.
You should meditate, relax and think about pleasant things. At that time, the drowsiness will naturally come.
Not getting into bed too early, avoiding exposure to blue light, meditating and practicing breathing are simple ways to fall asleep before the big day.
The night before big occasions like wedding day, first day working at a new company or simply a flight, many people experience insomnia.
Dr. Phyllis Zee, director of the Center for Sleep and Vascular Medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, said this is a completely normal phenomenon that happens to many people.
“I’ve had this situation many times. If you can’t fall asleep right away, don’t worry, worrying doesn’t help,” he said.
Raj Dasgupta, an associate professor of medicine at Keck University School of Medicine, has a similar view.
He said the body’s biological clock is programmed naturally.
