As a parent, we know that one of the things you’re always going to be doing is yawning. As well as many other things, such as running around doing everything for the whole family, cleaning like there’s no tomorrow, and having a breakdown once a day. We know thatbeing a parent is hard, but raising a child is also one of the best things that you can do. There’s no greater gift than watching that tiny little baby you once gave birth to, grow into a lovely young child that they were always destined to be. But, we know that being a parent is one of the main reasons why you’re always going to be yawning, as well as a few other things that we’re going to list today. Having less sleep every night is really going to have an affect on your general health as time goes on, so we want to discuss a few of the reasons why you’re always yawning, and how you can change them!
Your Children's Bedtime
Your Bedtime Routine
Something To Do With Your Health?
Getting into a routine is just so important if you’re going to get a good night's sleep yourself. The majority of the people will admit that why they are so tired, is because their children keep them awake. When they start getting older, this problem will vanish, but whilst they’re young, it’s something that’s really going to plague you. In the beginning, the waking up through the night can’t helped, and it’s a routine that you’ll build up over the course of the first year, until eventually they will sleep on their own without having to wake you up for a feed during the night. It’s when they start getting over the age of one, and being a nightmare until around the age of seven or eight. Bedtime just becomes something they don’t want to be involved in, and keeping you awake by running around and getting out of bed is what they’ll do best. If you’re struggling to get them to stay in bed at a normal time, you should take a look at thisMattress Advisor's guide. It’s full of great tips that should put you on the right path. But, if they keep getting out of bed, we recommend that you just leave them to it. Eventually, after an hour or so, they will tire themselves out, or get bored. Make sure that all of their toys are out of the room so they don’t have anything to play with, and that the TV is out of reach so they can’t turn it on. As the years go on, they will learn that bedtime is bedtime, and it should become more of a routine for them!
Your own routine is going to play a big part in your yawning issues. If you know that you don’t even go upstairs until 11 o’clock, and then you take your time to have a wash, brush your teeth, apply your creams, and whatever else you might need to do, then you’re setting yourself up for a bad day the next day! If you have to get up with the kids at 7am in the morning, you need to be in bed and relaxed by 10pm at night. So, if you head upstairs at nine, do all ofyour bedtime routine, and then jump into bed and read a book or magazine, you’re so much more likely to have nodded off by 11pm. That’ll give you enough hours sleep to get through the next day! Make sure you leave all technology downstairs, and use relaxing candles such as lavender scents to try and induce that relaxation a little bit further.
If you feel like you’re always yawning, but you had the perfect amount of sleep every night, then you might have something else going on. Whether it be a health condition such asanxietygiving you broken sleep, or something such as a vitamin deficiency that’s making you feel lethargic all of the time. A vitamin deficiency is easy to treat, and all you would need to do is have a blood test to get yourself a diagnosis, and then you’ll be prescribed or advised to get yourself some vitamins of whatever you’re deficient in. For most women, it’s a vitamin B12 deficiency. If it is something else that’s causing it, it’s better to get to the doctors and get your diagnosis sooner rather than later. Don’t put your yawning down to being part of your personality like a lot of people do, it’s better to get it checked out!
