Less sleep also affects on your work output. So, if you have been getting less sleep and thinking ways to get more sound sleep, here are some handy tips which will help you to have a proper and sound sleep.
♥ Turn off the electronic gadgets. One of the main reason that we are awake till late in the night is due to these gadgets which have made communication open for twenty-four hours. Keep your work away from your bed time routine. So keep all your gadgets on silent mode and away from your bed while going to sleep.
♥ Stick to a sleeping schedule. It is important to stick to a sleeping pattern. Set a time when no matter what you will go to sleep, and also make sure you also fix a time to wake up. Initially you will find it a little difficult to adjust to new timings but soon you will get used to it.
Stick to a sleeping schedule
♥ Create a room that`s ideal for sleeping. Create an environment which is cool and quiet. You can opt for room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs.
♥ Use bed, pillows, bed-covers and bed sheets which makes you comfortable. Many still prefer simple floral printed bed-sheets to make them feel like they are amidst a garden. Whatever soothes you use them.
♥ Wear light clothing to bed. Choose light breathable clothing that won’t cling to you like a t-shirt with shorts or just underwear. Whatever you choose when it comes to sleepwear in the hot summer months remember less equals more sleep for you.
♥ Do not watch any horror visuals before going off to bed. For that matter any disturbing visuals which will keep you awake pushing sleep away from you.
♥ If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Power napping may help you get through the day , but if you find that you can`t fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help.
Wear light clothing to bed
♥ Do not skip workouts. Regular exercise helps you sleep better, as long as you avoid doing it right before bedtime. A post-workout burst of energy can keep you awake. Try to finish your workouts 3 to 4 hours before your bedtime.
♥ Cut caffeine after 2 pm. That means coffee, tea, and cola. Caffeine is a stimulant that stays in your system for about 8 hours, so if you have a cappuccino after dinner, come bedtime, it`ll either prevent your brain from entering deep sleep or stop you from falling asleep altogether.
♥ Have a shower or bath. Soaking in the water can keep your body temperature up for when it’s time for bed.
