Sometimes, no matter how much sleep we get at night, we wake up in the morning saying, "just five more minutes!" Daily, we have to fulfill life's hectic responsibilities, and later at night, our minds start racing about all the activities we have to do the next day. However, you must not let yourself get lost among all these thoughts rambling through your mind.
Several studies show that having poor sleep can cause adverse effects on your performance, hormones, and brain function. Four out of five individuals suggest that they suffer at least once a week from insomnia and wake up exhausted.
What if there was a solution for waking up energized, leveraging that feeling through hectic days, and falling effortlessly asleep later at night?
If you try to implement the following hacks for better sleep, we promise that they will be precisely what you need to sleep like a baby and transform your health!
Stick To A Regular Sleep Schedule
If you get your body used to a healthy sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time daily, your body will find its natural rhythm and settle into a regular sleeping cycle.
Many people don’t prioritize this, and in the absence of a healthy sleep schedule, they have mood swings, drowsiness, headaches, restless sleep, and lower cognitive skills.
So if you want to stay away from these negative consequences, set a sleep schedule and stick to it!
Avoid Caffeine In The Afternoon
Caffeine can be a powerful wake-up call, but using it in the late afternoon could make your sleep less restful!
A recent study from The Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine suggests spacing out the coffee intake at least 6 hours before bedtime and switching over to herbal tea may help you fall asleep quicker.
Exercising six hours before bedtime and avoiding rigorous activities before sleep will help prevent insomnia and ensure a good night's rest.
There's nothing better than finally shutting down for some much-needed "me" time by slipping into an inviting bathtub filled up with sweet scents like lavender oils, which are known for inducing rest and relaxation.
Listen To Calming Music Before Bed
Music is a powerful external force in our lives. The right song can cause us to recall memories or make us feel unique emotions, but what if it also stimulated dreaming?
The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who listen 45 minutes before bedtime fall asleep faster with fewer awakenings throughout the night!
As it turns out, those who sleep to the sound of music have better rest than their counterparts sleeping without any tunes at all!
Eliminate Technology Distractions
After a long day, you're finally in bed and ready to sleep. But sometimes, your brain just won't cooperate. Some people use their phones to read the news and check social media before bed, which may cause them anxiety when they try to sleep later on.
Technology is something special that enables us to connect with many people and information. However, it can also induce anxiety and harm our sleep routines - so make sure you turn off your TV, laptop, or cell phone near bedtime!
It's fascinating how humanity cannot function without sleep, and the truth is that most of us aren’t getting enough. If you're struggling to fall asleep effortlessly or wake up in the middle of the night - it might be time to transform your sleep and make it a priority!
