If you are like a lot of people you may have come across that you wake up in the morning feeling more tired than you were when you went to bed.
Apparently this is not an ideal predicament, so how can you ensure that you get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling invigorate and ready to embark on the new day? Here are a few good tips to help you.
It is important to try to mentally unwind before going to bed. An overactive mind is one of the primitive breeds of poor sleep and infirm sleep. Try to carry out a low-stress activity in the 30 minutes to an hour before going on to sleep. Instances of such activities are reading and listening to music that can relax your mind.
A freshened body will lead to a rosy mind. Two of the best ways that you can relax your body are to engage in meditation or take a warm bath.
It is crucial not to munch of a heavy meal flat-out prior to going to bed, but a light snack that is high in carbohydrates can help to relax the body.
If you are prone to sleep troubles it is particularly important that you stick to a regular sleep routine, going to sleep at the same time every night and getting on up at the same time every morning. Yes, this includes weekends. If you are lure to have a lie in at the weekend you will usually learn that this leads to you struggling to get to sleep at the end of the day and feeling tired when you have to get up in the morning to start a new work week.
Try to avoid taking a nap all through the day. You only need a fixed amount of sleep during any 24-hour period; so clearly, if you take a nap during the middle of the day you may find it very hard to fall into sleep through the night.
Your bedroom should be quiet and dark. If you cannot block out all noise and light you might want to purchase some good quality ear plugs and a sleep mask. It is also important that your bedroom temperature is comfortable, neither too hot nor too cold. Body temperature is ideal.
If, after you have tried these tips and still find it difficult to sleep, then you have to seek advice from your doctor to make sure that there is not an underlying medical problem that is responsible for your poor sleep order.
