Teens: Not Getting Enough Sleep?

August 22nd, 2014   By:Glena Davis, D.O.

Between the drama of homework, sports, other activities, and having a social life, many teens  feel overwhelmed and don’t get enough sleep. Sleep is a very important component ofyour health. Your body works best when you get enough sleep. A lack of sleep makes it hard to concentrate and perform your best at sports and other activities. Studies show that not getting enough sleep slows down reaction time and affects the ability to concentrate while driving.

Research has shown that many teens don’t get enough sleep. This is partly due to the fact that during adolescence teens’ “circadian rhythm” (the body’s internal clock) has a tendency to shift out of sync with the external clock. Instead of releasing melatonin (a hormone) early in the evening, the brain does so much later at night which makes it harder both to fall asleep early enough to get a full 9 hours of sleep, and to wake up on time the next morning. Not being able to sleep may be a bedroom that is too hot, too cold, or too noisy. It may be the stress, like too much on your mind. It may be from too much caffiene.

Teens need about 9 hours of sleep a night and adults need slightly less (7-9 hours each night).

11 Tips to Follow:

  1. No caffeine after 3pm: Avoid beverages with caffeine (soda, tea, energy drinks, etc.) especially after 3pm.
  2. Don’t go to bed hungry: Have your evening meal at least 3 hrs. before going to sleep. It’s fine to have a small bedtime snack such as a glass of milk and a few crackers but don’t have a big meal.
  3. Have a nightly routine before bed: Plan on “winding down” before you go to sleep. Begin relaxing about 1 hour before you go to bed. Try doing a quiet activity such as listening to calming music, reading a book or meditating.
  4. Turn off the TV and ALL electronics including video games, tablets, laptops, etc. 1 hour before sleep, and keep them out of the bedroom.
  5. Turn off your cell phone and all notifications (This means Tumblr and text alerts) or even better, leave your phone outside your room while you sleep. Studies have shown that a part of your brain continues to respond to certain lights and sounds even while you’re still asleep.
  6. Make your bedroom quiet, dark and cool. If you can’t control the noise, try wearing earplugs or using a fan to block out other sounds.
  7. Practice relaxation techniques. Try reading a book or meditating or drain your brain by writing a list of what you need to do the next day.
  8. Don’t nap unless you feel sick: you’ll have a better night’s sleep.
  9. Don’t smoke, or quit if you do. Nicotine, alcohol, and marijuana can all keep you awake. Talk to your health care provider if you need help with substance use.
  10. Most importantly, wake up at the same time every day (or within 1 hour of your usual wake up time) EVEN on the weekends. A regular wake up time promotes sleep hygiene and prevents sleep problems.
  11. Reduce exposure to bright light in the last three hours of the day before going to sleep.
Maintaining good sleep hygiene and having good sleep habits lower your risk of developing sleep problems. Getting better sleep can also improve your concentration and alertness. Try the simple steps in this guide. If you still have trouble getting enough rest, make an appointment with our clinic.

Long Term Reversible Contraception

August 21st, 2014   By:Glena Davis, D.O.

Long Term Reversible Contraception (LARC) is the new and easy way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Contracpetion has traditionally been thought of as taking a pill every day. This can be very hard to remember for young, healthy women, or busy new Moms. If you forget to take the pill, then there is a risk of becoming pregnant. There are new devices available that can be placed in the body for 3 years, 5 years, or 10 years or longer. One type is the intrauterine device (IUD). There is the new Skyla IUD for 3 years. The Mirena IUD lasts for 5 years. Both decrease bleeding as well as prevent pregnancy. The Paraguard IUD is hormone free, and lasts 10 years or longer. The most popular for our young patients is the subdermal implant, Nexplanon. The Nexplanon device is placed under the skin on the inside of the arm. It helps decrease bleeding and No Pelvic Exam needed! The Nexplanon lasts for 3 years. It is perfect for ladies in school that want to get through Prom and Graduation without all the Drama! Call our office today to make an appointment to discuss these Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) today!
