Have you ever wondered why despite restricting caffeine intake, keeping the room dark and not thinking too much you still struggle to sleep? Why you keep tossing and turning for hours after hitting bed, when you think you have done everything right the entire day and deserve to sleep.
Lack of sleep doesn’t only ruin the productivity the next day, but lack of sleep can also lead to depression, heart disease and weight gain etc. Therefore, it is important to get sound sleep every night. Here are a few things you can do right during the day (along with things that you are already doing) to see a difference in your sleep pattern.
- Avoid any mid-day drinks energy boosting ingredients. If you at all have to (since you are too addicted) have it before 2 or 3 pm so you have time for its effects to wear off before sleeping.
- Do not drink close to sleeping time. Drinking alcohol may let you fall asleep fast (without tension) but the latter half of your sleep will be very restless.
If you like taking a warm shower before sleeping, think again increasing the body temperature before sleeping can hinder your sleep. So, if you have to bathe a few hours before hitting the bed.
