The first step would be to stop worrying to sleep well. People do not die from lack of sleep.
You should not keep thinking about sleeplessness, as this in turn promotes insomnia and it becomes a vicious cycle.
You should stop becoming anxious and try to relax. Try to have a warm bath before sleeping. Have a glass of milk or read a book before trying to sleep. Don’t watch TV or do exercise before sleeping. Condition yourself that you can relax and that you can sleep well.
Try yoga and meditation they have calming effects. Go for long stress free walks. Also, do exercise in the daytime this promotes good sleep.
Temporary hair loss or thinning can be triggered by dietary imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, stress or shock. Hair health requires good nutrition with enough iron, vitamin C, B vitamins and essential fatty acids. Eating more protein can reduce hair loss. Protein can be obtained from pulses, soya products, whole grains, dairy products, eggs, meat and fish. Increasing intake of citrus fruits, berries and green vegetables will boost vitamin C and aid circulation.
Oh thank you for answering me Io have relaxed and I don't feel the same as I was feeling a month ago in a way I feel I have recuperated a little but now I'm entering a deep depression that just comes I lose all hope.. Lately I feel like I have become slower like if my mental capacity has just lowered I don't feel the old me.. I feel dumb maybe stupid idk of that can happen but I just can't concentrate when I'm talking to someone I feel like I drift away I even studder.. I do have a diet high in protein I eat food plus a meal shake really earthy food I take multivitamins 3 times a day with each meal I eat so much and it seems like I poop everything out the next day.. My hairless has been going on for over a year and a half i am starting to notice a bald spot.. It isn't completely noticeable but if you take the time you will notice less hair on the front right side of my scalp.. It's not just losing hair from that part but from every part of my body.. I have slept better but I still feel very weak please help me thank you for reading this and answering me.. I can't afford to go to a doctor and my mom only makes it worse she made me cry I thought I was going crazy.. She said the way I feel is all in my head but that's stupid the facts are there my appearance looks that of a very sickly person.. I jus want to be me again.. If I can email you I would appreciate it thank you so much.. :( I don't know where to find answers
Understand your predicament. Sometimes, gaining weight may not be easy, if by hereditary, you are of the “skinny body type” and one with fast metabolism. I will offer a few suggestions. Count the number of calories you eat normally and increase by about 500 calories. Keep at it for a few days and increase further more and you will notice weight gain. Drink plenty of water. Sleeping well is the easiest way to gain weight. A few exercises are known to promote weight gain, about which a trainer in a health studio may help you. Further, exercises will improve your appetite.
Stick to a good, balanced diet with high proteins and plenty of fruits and vegetables, which in addition to helping you put on weight, will keep you healthy.
