Is sleeping a challenging part of your day? It is for sure an essential action to improve if it’s not coming naturally for you.
In this article, I want to offer you a sweet pillow and talk about dreamland where we spend around one-third of every day of our lives.
But first, why am I even talking about sleep when it’s something our body does naturally?
The truth is that sleep is not something that just happens… unless you are a teenager! Even babies need to learn to fall asleep and sleep well.
What’s important about getting good sleep?
Good sleep is vital for good health. Sleep deprivation can lead to a multitude of health issues:
It escalates the hunger hormone called ghrelin, which increases food cravings
It escalates the stress hormone called cortisol, which can cause weight gain, diabetes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, depression, osteoporosis, and depressed immunity
It causes elevated blood pressure in people with hypertension, which can lead to cardiovascular diseases and stroke
Learning how to improve your sleep is not just a luxury – it’s necessary!
How do I get better sleep?
Follow these 7 tips, and you will feel more rejuvenated and energized than you even knew was possible:
1- Practice regular sleep rhythms by going to bed and waking up around the same time each day.
2- Create a totally quiet and darkness in your bedroom.
3- Avoid caffeine or reduce your intake afternoon as it affects your sleep dramatically.
4- Get regular exposure to daylight for at least 20 minutes a day because the sunlight triggers your brain to release melatonin, which is vital for healthy sleep.
5- Eat no later than two hours before going to bed because eating a heavy meal before bedtime will impede your body’s natural overnight detoxification process.
6- Write down your worrying thoughts before bedtime so you can free your mind and drop into a deep and restful sleep.
7- Take a hot salt or aromatherapy bath because raising your body temperature before helps to induce sleep.
