Let’s sleep like a baby all night, every night!
Falling asleep may seem like a nearly impossible dream when you’re awake at 3 AM, but a good sleep is more under your control than you think it is! When stress and daily pressures weigh you down, you end up getting a restless sleep. Are you twisting from one side to another every night or waking up every morning longing to sleep just a few minutes longer? Worry no more! We’ve got you covered!
Here are a few ways in which you can have a sound sleep:
- Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol before sleep
Any coffee lover would know that caffeine can keep you awake! Try avoiding caffeine for at-least 4-6 hours before bedtime. You might think alcohol will bring upon sleep. But the truth is, it only reduces the quality of sleep later in the night.
- Turn your bedroom into a sleep inducing environment
Ever wondered why bats gather in caves for their daytime sleep? Well, a quiet, dark and cool environment can help induce sound sleep. And now all you need is your favorite pillow to hug tight and sleep.
- Essential oils to your rescue!
Lavender tops the list for this! It is more than just an old wives tale, the aroma of lavender oil promises a restful sleep. Sandalwood – as woodsy as it might sound, the sweet and exotic aroma will lull you to sleep in no time! The list goes on and on. Try Zzz Sleep Therapy Mist by Gomalon!
- Make sure you’re not a night time clock-watcher
Staring at the clock in your bedroom, be it when you are trying to fall asleep or when you wake up in the middle of the night, can only increase stress, thus making it harder to fall asleep. Indulge in a quiet, restful activity and always remember to keep the lights dim. Now you can be ready to hit the bed!
- Lighten up on evening meals
Eating a freshly baked pan pizza at 10 p.m. can be the perfect recipe for insomnia. Finish dinner few hours before bedtime. Make sure you drink enough fluid to keep from waking up thirsty.
So let’s cut that love-hate relation we have with sleep. When it comes to sleep, quality trumps quantity every time! So, try getting that sound sleep that doesn’t let you snooze your alarm for even a minute longer!
