Our body needs sleep as much as it needs oxygen and food. We spend about a third of our life sleeping, and sleep is a daily state in which your body and mind take a break. This break is substantial for your growth and your memory. Your body recovers, your muscles relax and your memory is stored. You are getting ready for a new day! Healthy sleep habits can play a significant role and make a huge difference in your life.
Stick to a sleeping schedule that has the same bedtime and wake up time. This will help to regulate your body clock.
Evaluate your room. Design your sleep environment to establish the condition you need to sleep. There are many factors that can contribute to several sleeping issues. Your bedroom plays a significant role and can be part of that problem.
Your bedroom should be cool and free from any noise that can disturb your sleep. It is also best to remove things you don’t need outside your bedroom. Choose the right colors to engage to a peaceful sleep, like light blue, grey, silver, green as well as neutral colors.
Turn down the lights. It is also best to keep any electronic device such as laptop or TV , out of your sleeping environment.
USE YOUR BEDROOM ONLY FOR SLEEP
Avoid alcohol, cigarettes and heavy meals in the evening. They can disrupt your sleep. Finish eating at least two to three hours before your regular bed time.
Spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity such as reading a book or listening to smoothing music.
Slowing your mind down before going to bed will help you sleep well. A late meeting or exercise right before going to bed is not recommended.
Try to forget all your daytime worries when you go to bed.
