After the supper do some physical exercise or go for a walk so that when you go to bed your tummy does not feel heavy and the food that you have consumed is well in the process of digestion. Do not eat spicy or heavy food like fried or oily stuff in the night. Take a balanced meal and then do not eat anything an hour before going to bed.
Switch off the electronics to sleep peacefully
The light blue lights from gadget screen is very disturbing for sleep and bad for health. Make sure your television is switched off before you go to sleep and your gadgets like tablets and laptops are properly shut down. If you want to keep your mobiles open do not keep the mobile under your pillow or on your bed. Put it on the night stand well away from your head to keep away from the harmful radiations as well as to not to be disturbed by messages ringing or vibrating and waking you up from your beauty sleep.
Make sure there is no noise for a restful sleep
Once you are in the bed it is very difficult to get up again so make sure when you are tired and about to go to bed you check that there will be no disturbances. Close the faucets tightly, mute the clocks if you are a light sleeper, close the windows if you live on a busy road. You can use ear plugs to sound proof your beauty sleep.
Do not rely on sleeping pills
Taking sleeping pills is a risky step. Because you get used to them very easily. Then two things can occur. Either you cannot sleep without it or you become immune to it. You do not want either to happen so if you want to take sleeping pills consult a certified physician or a doctor otherwise use natural methods to try to sleep of you are suffering from insomnia. Also never take more than a couple of tablets at a time. A slight overdose can take you the edge of your life.
Foods to avoid in order to have a sound beauty sleep
Ok there are some foods that take your sleep away. Firstly caffeinated drinks, while coffee in the morning is great for a kickstart, it is not recommended to have it after midday so that you can enjoy a sound sleep in the night. Too much alcohol can dampen your sleep too. Also you wake up with a splitting headache thanks to the hangover. So if you want to have a peaceful sleep avoid too much alcohol at in the evening. Partying on the weekend is ok but there is no need to do it every day otherwise it will affect your sleep pattern adversely.
Also too much sugar can give you a sugar rush and take away your sleep. So if you cannot sleep and want some comfort food ice cream is not a good idea. Warm milk with honey or chamomile tea will be good for you.
And spicy food can give you gas or acidity and make it difficult for you to enjoy a sound sleep at night.
Dim the lights
Dim the lights near the bedtime. The lower lights signal the brain to create melatonin the hormone that brings on the sleep so dim the lights an hour before bedtime. If you want read, then read in the light of a lamp on the bed stand, so the room has the night effect.
Have a calming bedtime routine
Just as we have mentioned that avoid activities that cause anxiety or excitement before sleep, it is healthy to have a calming activity before going to bed. It can be something like reading a book, listening to soft music, bedtime stories or playing alight game of cards with your kids. Routines are good because it signals the body to prepare for the next move.
Make your bed room peaceful and comfortable
This is very important. If you want to enjoy a peaceful night of sleep the place where you sleep must be comfortable. Clean up your room before night because you can never feel peaceful in a cluttered environment. Earlier it was advised that there should be no television on the bedroom so the couples can enjoy some family time but now with the tabs and smartphones there is no escaping the screens in the bedrooms. However make it a point that when you enter the bedroom for sleep, do not think about work or stick to your mobile or tab screen. Talking about general day to day things with your spouse is also relaxing and good pre bedtime routine.
Comfortable bed, mattress and the pillows
These three are the most important things when you sleep. Sleeping on a firm comfortable matress is essential otherwise you can get back problems. Stiff pillows can give you’re a stiff neck and any problem with the bed can result in unrestful sleep. So make sure these three things are comfortable when you go buy them. Buy a medicated mattress if you have back problems.
