Soundsleep – Yeah, sounds familiar but difficult to achieve. Whydo I feel like hit by rock in the morning?Whydo I find it difficult to follow alarm? Is it so much difficult?No,the answer is simple. You don’t sleep right.
Wakingup is one of the most natural things in the world, so it’s not supposed to besuch a challenge. Thereis something in your daily routine that stands in the way of your good restduring the night. Did youknow that, having a TV in the bedroom is a bad idea, do you eat before you goto bed? TodayI’m going to explain why these, and many other things don’t let you rest enoughat night.
Countingdown from number eight. Sleep enough Yeah,easier said than done. But comeon, it’s your health. Sleepdeprivation is known for causing stress, which is never good, and the most recentresearch says it may be a reason of diabetes. Gettingenough sleep every night affects your productivity, your mood, and even yourweight. An averageperson needs around eight hours of sleep a night. So,make sure you spend this amount of time in bed every night. However,enough doesn’t mean as much as possible.
You shouldmaintain your normal day and night cycle even on the weekends. Try togo to bed and get up at roughly the same time every day. We knowit’s hard, but still it will help your body set your internal clock correctly, soyou won’t feel tired when you shouldn’t.
Make your bedroom just abedroom Yeah,you’re probably gonna have to get rid of that trapeze. It’s veryimportant that your mind sees the bedroom as a place where the only thing youdo is rest. Get ridof everything in the room that has nothing to do with sleep. Move theTV to the living room and of course don’t make an office in your bedroom.
If youwork from home, good luck with that. Make it ComfortableMake yourbedroom as comfortable as possible by a high-quality mattress. That willhelp you rest better and faster. Your backwill be in the right position, so you won’t wake up, feeling as if you were in afight and lost.
Keep thebedroom cool around 65 degrees Fahrenheit or 19 degrees Celsius, otherwise youwill wake up during the night and sleep worse. Eliminateall sources of light from the bedroom. Why,the thing is in terms of evolution, artificial light hasn’t really been aroundlong enough, so humans have existed for a far longer time without artificial lightthan with it. That’swhy we still feel sleepy when it’s dark and more alert when it’s light.
Maybesomeday, evolution will fix this little bug but until then make sure you sleepin absolute darkness. Lightsuppresses production of melatonin, a hormone that makes you feel sleeping. Say goodbyeto watching late-night TV and reading books on your tablet. Try tofall asleep yourself, that’s a good time to reflect on the things you’ve doneduring the day.
Exercise more & moreAgain,humans are not perfect. Who saidthat, and our bodies are not used to spending nine hours a day in front of thescreen, at least not yet. We’resupposed to hunt down wild animals and not watch cat videos on YouTube. So, goto the gym, to the swimming pool, walk every day, do whatever it takes to gettired not only mentally but also physically. Exercisehelps reduce anxiety and reduce your sleep.
So, ifyou suffer from insomnia, go outside and run around the block. It mighthelp a lot. Change your diet for goodAvoidbig meals before the night, otherwise your body will have to do a lot of workwhen it should be resting. Digestiontakes a lot of energy, so instead of restoring it, you’ll be wasting it. Don’tdrink too much. You don’t want to spend that precious sleeping time on trips tothe bathroom, right.
You shouldalso eat less sugar. Sugaryfoods can give you too much energy that will keep you awake for too long. Relax more Seriously,take it easy. You know that there is nothing more important than your health,don’t you? We’renot going to advise you something like, don’t think about work.
It’s like,don’t think about a huge pink elephant. Find a hobby something you truly enjoydoing and concentrate on it. This willhelp you get rid of a lot of stressful thoughts. Take ahot shower before going to bed. It willrelax your body and your mind. Also,the water will cool down your body temperature and you will sleep better. Listeningto music is another option.
Well Rammstein is probably not your best choice. Try somethingcalm and slow preferably without lyrics. Words can be disturbing, whilesoothing music can help you relax. Turn clock awayHave youhad those moments, when you wake up before the alarm having no idea what timeit is.
It’s terribleto find out that it’s just 30 minutes left so you really don’t know whether towake up now or try to get back to sleep. You usuallyspend this half hour guessing and then get up tired and stressed. So it’sbetter to be ignorant and happy turning away the clock will also help you stopchecking the time when you can’t fall asleep. Findingout how much time you’ve been tossing and turning won’t help you a bit. It willonly make you angrier and less likely to wake up rested.
