8. Difficulty Falling Asleep
You may fall into bed exhausted, only to lie there, unable to sleep. First, make sure you are treating any medical conditions that prevent you from sleeping. These may include pain, anxiety, depression, acid reflux, or respiratory problems. If your medical conditions are under control, make sure you are setting yourself up for success each night before you hit the sheets. Refrain from caffeine, alcohol, bright lights, and vigorous activity in the hours before bedtime. Reserve your bedroom for sleeping and make sure it is a dim, comforting, cozy oasis that will help to stimulate relaxation and sleep.
7. Dry Skin
Unusually dry skin may be a symptom of diseases such as thyroid disorders, diabetes, or eczema. Barring serious illness, your dry skin may simply be a reflection of dry weather or dry air in your home or workplace. Additionally, a reaction to chemicals or excessive use of hot water can appear as dry skin. First, make sure to keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids such as coffee, tea, water, and milk. Next, apply a moisturizer to keep your skin soft and supple. If dry air is the culprit, use a humidifier to replace moisture in the air.
6. Excessive Sweating
The Mayo Clinic provides a laundry list of medical conditions that may cause excessive sweating. Examples include diabetes, heart attack, anxiety, leukemia, and tuberculosis. Therefore, it is wise to see your doctor if you experience unusual or unexplained sweating. Sometimes, you may experience excessive sweating when eating hot or spicy foods. Removing these foods from your diet may help. Meanwhile, employing relaxation techniques may help decrease the sweating associated with anxiety or stress. If you sweat profusely, consider using a deodorant or antiperspirant. Wear loose, breathable fabrics to keep your skin cool.
