Are You SLEEP Deprived?

Tips to good sleep
Signs of Sleep Deprivation

  • Have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning
  • Get sleepy in meetings or lectures
  • Feel very tired in the afternoon
  • Feeling a need to nap to get through the day
  • Fall asleep while watching TV or relaxing in the evening
  • Feel the need to sleep in on weekends
  • Fall asleep within five minutes of going to bed

Effects of Sleep Deprivation

  • Fatigue, Lethargy
  • Moodiness and Irritability
  • Reduced Creativity and Problem-Solving Skills
  • Reduced Immunity; Frequent Colds and Infections
  • Concentration and Memory Problems
  • Weight Gain
  • Impaired Motor Skills and Increased Risk Of Accidents
  • Increased Risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Other Health Problems

Some Simple Tips for Good Sleep:

  • Make sleep schedule and stick to it. Make sure that you go to bed and get up at the same time every day, irrespective of weekends, holidays. This reinforces our sleep – wake cycle and promotes better sleep.
  • Create a ritual before going to bed. Creating a bed ritual is important as it indicates our body that it is time to sleep. This may include taking a warm bath or shower, reading a book, or listening to soothing music. These activities can promote better.
  • Eat dinner early. Do not go to bed immediately after having food or while feeling hungry. Eat and drink tactfully before going to bed so that the body can prepare itself well before winding up for the day. The dinner should be taken preferably 2 hours before we go to sleep. Drink warm milk with honey.
  • Make Sleep a Priority. Schedule enough time for sleep. Make sleep at the top of your to-do list, instead of cutting back on sleep in order to tackle the rest of your daily tasks.
  • Limit Daytime Naps. Long daytime naps can interfere with night time sleep. If you choose to nap during the mid-afternoon, limit yourself to about 10 to 20 minutes.
  • Include Physical Activity in your Daily Routine. Regular Physical Activity can promote better sleep, helping you to fall asleep faster and to enjoy deeper sleep. Avoid exercising too close to bedtime; you might be too energized to fall asleep.
  • Manage Stress. Before bed, jot down what’s on your mind and then set it aside for tomorrow. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks. Give yourself permission to take a break when you need one
  • Get Comfortable. Create a room that’s ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet. Your mattress and pillow can contribute to better sleep, too. Choose what feels most comfortable to you.
  • Consult Doctor. If you snore / have loud labored breathing while sleeping or you have observed periods of stoppage of breathing during night sleep, seek medical opinion. Also there may be associated daytime excessive sleepiness, loss of concentration, irritability. In other cases of Insomnias, if above tips does not help seek opinion from your doctor.

Body heat can be produced due to variety of factors among which the environmental heat that surrounds your body plays an important role. Your body can get heat up during the summer season when you are mostly exposed to the scorching sunrays. Another factor of heating up of body is the food you are consuming.

Some natural herbs and home remedies play an important role in this process.

The normal body temperature of a human should be 36.9˚C, with small variations which are acceptable.

Vaccines are an important part of every individual life. They protect children against communicable diseases. They help strengthen the immune system of the body to protect and fight against harmful pathogens. They reduce the infectious disease burden in the community. Vaccines are very crucial and can cause serious illness, risk of death, life-long disability or serious long term complications if overlooked. Some vaccines are mandatory, while some are optional.

Vaccines at Birth-Mandatory Vaccines

BCG (Bacillus Calmette Guerin) VACCINATION

BCG vaccine is given at birth to prevent serious forms of tuberculosis. It is helpful in some extent to prevent diseases like Leprosy and Buruli ulcers. BCG vaccines are administrated intradermally only on the outer aspect of left shoulder. No other sites are advised for cosmetic reasons. A small bubble like lesion will appear at the site of infection which will gradually turn to a scar. No medicine should be applied on the BCG wound. The baby generally will not get fever after administration of the vaccine. If BCG vaccine is not given at birth, it has to be given to any child up to one year of age.


This vaccine helps in prevention of Hepatitis B virus infection which causes serious liver disease in children and adults. Children acquiring Hepatitis B infection at young age are at higher chances of getting serious liver disease which could also lead to liver cancer. The infection can spread from mother to child, sexual transmission, by use of contaminated syringes, blood and blood products.
Hepatitis B vaccine is given to all babies in three cycles, at birth, 6 weeks and 6 months of age
Babies born to Hepatitis B infected mothers need to be given the first dose of the vaccine and Hepatitis B immunoglobulin within 12 hours after birth. The vaccine is administered on the outer side of the thigh. Further vaccines are given at 6 weeks, 10 weeks and an additional dose at 12 months. Hepatitis B vaccine provides indefinite protection. However the vaccination would only provide effective cover for five to seven years. Babies who have missed the birth dose need to take the vaccine at 1.5, 2.5 and 6 months schedule.


One of the challenging diseases of the world, Polio has been eradicated, except for a few countries. Thanks to the Polio Vaccine. Polio is a crippling disease caused by polio virus which causes permanent weakness of the limbs (legs and arms). Serious form of the disease can be life threatening. India was declared Polio free nation in March 2014. It is the duty of every Indian citizen to vaccinate their children with polio vaccines to successfully maintain the polio-free status of our country. Polio vaccines given to the child can be oral polio vaccine (OPV) and injectable polio vaccine (IPV). OPV is given as two drops orally at birth, 6 months, 9 months and 4.5‐5 years. IPV is administered along with OPV as the immunity produced by the combined use of both the vaccines is better than single use. IPV is administered at 6, 10 and 14 weeks and booster at 16‐18 months. Pulse polio immunization is given to all children less than 5 years of age with OPV as part of polio eradication program on National Immunization Days. Side effects with polio vaccines are minimal. Local pain and swelling at the site of injection is very minimal with IPV. Any child who has missed the regular schedule should receive IPV as per doctor’s advice.
