The art of a good night’s sleep
We have all had those nights where we cannot sleep, and we toss and turn for what seems like hours. The are many reasons for those restless nights one of the most common being stress. The worst thing is dozing off only to suddenly wake up a little while later.
5 Sleep techniques to try to achieve a good night’s sleep
#1 Try avoiding having a TV in your room or make sure it is completely off at nigh
A lot of people have TV’s in their rooms, this should be avoided. The light and noise from the TV can cause visual stimulation.Although the TV can help you doze off leaving it on whilst you try to sleep is not a good idea and tends to lead to a distrustful night’s sleep.
#2 Leave the social media and phones at the bedroom door
Computers, mobile phones and smart devices are distractions that will not only keep you from going to sleep at a decent hour but can also disrupt your night sleep.If you need to keep your mobile phone next to your bed ensure it is in night mode and the buzzer is off.
Do not engage in any social media applications if you are going to do so at night try to limit your time on them. Keep that time in the lounge and not your bedroom
#5 Keep it cool
If you are too hot you will toss and turn trying to find a cool spot. It is always best to keep your rooms a little cooler with a fan.
Try not to have the fan directly on you though as that could cause you to get a dry mouth and or throat.
#4 Darkness encourages deeper sleep
Try to keep the room as dark as possible or at least wear an eye mask to block out any light.
#5 Reduce or block out the noise
Quiet is one of the top keys to a decent night sleep!
Sleep deprivation can lead to serious health and mental issues. If the problem persists you should consult your doctor for advice.
Taking sleep remedies, unless the likes of a hot malt or milky drink, can lead to addiction and other more serious problems. Never play with your health!
