In the present world, each of us has so many tasks, commitments, and challenges on a daily basis. Stressful life affects the quality of our sleep tremendously. In this article we will share with you 5 ways to achieve perfect sleep:
• No digital devices one hour before you want to go to bed.
Checking social networks, emails, messages make our brain work and we want it to calm down at this time. Spend this hour for cleaning home, reading a book, talking to your family or doing some beauty procedures.
• Avoid eating heavy food or drinking coffee in the evening.
Caffeine is the stimulant that will keep you awake. And regarding food, if you have a heavy stomach, you will hardly be able to sleep well. Some light salad and herbal tea would be a perfect option for dinner.
• Take at least short, 20 min walk in the evening.
Fresh air is an essential part of good sleep. Apart from this, it helps to refresh the mind. I personally feel burnt out if I stay inside the whole day long. Just put sport shoes and walk a bit for 20 or 30 min. Trust me on that, you will sleep much better afterward.
• Exercise regularly.
Exercise will help you to fall asleep faster as long as it’s done in the morning or at least 3 hours before you go to sleep. It should be an essential part of life if you have stressful work as well.
• Create a perfect sleep environment.
You sleep environment drastically impacts your health. Make sure that light is switched off while you are sleeping. Get your bedroom as dark as possible. The presence of blue light can also disrupt sleep, that’s why I recommend to switch off all technical devices including WIFI or move them to another room. Make sure that the temperature in the room is comfortable for you and there is enough fresh air. Putting green plants in the room and buying air purifiers is a great decision. I personally put fried lava see flowers inside my pillow, it helps me to get more relaxed.
