Most effective tips to improve sleep
While some people are dead to the world the minute they hit the sack; our hectic lifestyle means that most of us are well acquainted with the struggle of being exhausted yet unable to sleep. Dr Arun (#askdrarun) the co-founder of Pure Cure + Co. strongly believes that, “Lack of sleep is the culprit behind mood swings and irritableness, and it also destroys your focus and drains your energy.” Here are a couple of helpful tips that ought to help fight your insomnia.
Follow a steady sleep schedule
Follow the ‘early to bed, early to rise’ mantra to the T. Fix a time to go to bed daily and see to it that you make no exceptions, no matter how engaging the task at hand may seem. Make sure that this rule also extends to the weekends. Pull in a family member to help you stick to your schedule, as we often tend to get caught up in stuff and lose track of time. Also, your biggest enemy - the games on your phone or social media - need to be kept strictly at bay once you cross your sleeping time.
Avoid naps in the afternoon
Following a steady sleeping schedule is near impossible if you spend the entire night sleepless and made up for it by taking long naps during the day. It would be best for you to completely resist the urge to sleep during the day, no matter how tired you are. Just allow the sleep to build up till your scheduled sleeping time, and once that falls into pattern, you will be good to go.
Assess the quality of your mattress
Another wet blanket (pun intended) that comes in the way of your precious sleep is the mattress and pillow that you sleep on. Even the best quality mattresses and pillows have a maximum life expectancy of around 10 years. Beyond that all they cause is sleeplessness, back and neck problems. Don’t cut corners when it comes to selecting a mattress and invest in a good quality one that has a positive effect on your health and sleep.
Eliminate noise from your bedroom
Ensure that there is no noisy machine or gadget in your bedroom. If you are a light sleeper who gets disturbed by the smallest of sounds from outside your windows, then look for soundproofing them. Create an ambience in the bedroom that assists you in sleeping. There is also a wide variety of sleep oil aromatherapy diffusers available in the market, so you can take your pick.
Meditate before sleeping
Since times immemorial, the easiest and best technique known to relieve stress is meditation. If your sleeplessness is due to some nagging worry at the back of your head, then try meditating for about 10-15 minutes before you sleep. It has an extremely soothing effect on your mind, that could help you sleep better.
