8 Easy Ways to Finally Get a Sound Sleep
- Sleep enough
Sleep deprivation causes stress.
Getting enough sleep every night affects your mood, productivity, and weight.
You need 8 hours of sleep every night. Ensure you have enough sleep every night. “Enough” doesn’t means as much as possible. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, including weekends.
- Make your bedroom just a bedroom
Don’t make your office in the bedroom.
Strengthen your mental association between your bedroom and sleep by removing computers, TVs, or any work materials from the bedroom.
- Make your bedroom comfortable for sleep
Get a good quality and comfortable mattress.
Keep the bedroom cool.
Eliminate all sources of lights from the bedroom. Make sure you sleep in absolute darkness.
A dark, quiet and cool environment will help to get better sleep.
- Exercise more
Do whatever it takes to get tired not only mentally but also physically.
Go to Sleep When You’re Truly Tired.
- Change your diet
Avoid meals just before bed. Drink enough fluid at night. This will help to avoid waking up thirsty. But don’t drink too much so close to bedtime because that may make you awakened by the need for a trip to the bathroom.
- Relax more
Take a hot shower before going to bed.
Listen to music.
- Turn away your clock
Don’t Be a Nighttime Clock-Watcher.
- Have early naps – before 3 pm
Napping in the evening destroys your day and night cycle.
