Is your post-work routine the cause of your insomnia?

Most of us feel pretty tired when we get home after a day at work - in an ideal world we just collapse onto the couch. In a more realistic world, we either continue working from home or have a drink (or two).

According to The Seattle Times, this kind of post-work routine could be the cause of your insomnia. Instead, you should:

  • Listen to music on the way home
  • Exercise or interact with friends and family
  • Reflect on the positive aspects of your day
  • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes
  • Eat healthily

Although this does sound rather simplistic, we'd not previously considered that our post-work routines could be an insomnia cause. We'd be interested to know what you do to relax after work and whether you feel that routine affects your sleep.

    Thanks for your comment, Diana! I think this just goes to further prove that there can be no stock insomnia advice – different things work for different people.

    Oh and as for no mayo on the cheeseburger – we all have to start somewhere!

    Like I said….I’m pretty sure that it’s the whole not having a job to come home from that’s causing my insomnia! I have been an insomniac for years, but no job just made it worse. I took a look at the suggestions and I had to laugh – not that they’re bad suggestions. It’s that I do the polar opposite of what they say! Er…I smoke (yeah, I know tsk, tsk), I have no positive aspects to reflect on at the moment, and my idea of healthy is asking for no mayo on my cheeseburger. I guess I should face it….I’m screwed. 🙂
