We all need enough sleep to stay healthy and have energy to be able to do the tasks of every day life. Sometimes it may be difficult to fall asleep and the sleep can be restless. What to do to avoid this? Found an article with good tips and wanted to share it with you.
1. Stick to a sleep schedule
Try to go to bed at the same time every night. I really try to do this but not yet succeeded in it. Time just seems to flow so fast in the evenings!
2. Pay attention what you eat & drink
A heavy meal just before bedtime is a big no-no. It is said that caffeine is not a good choice i nthe evening, but I do drink black tea and diet coke when ever I feel like and it has never made me too unsleepy.
3. Create a restfull enviroment
This is what I find pretty important. First of all have a good bed and mattress. It makes a difference what material your bedlinen are. My favourite materials are soft linen and Egyptian cotton. Wrinkle linen feels so cosy!
I like to keep my bedroom interior simple and unclutter it time to time. Neutral tones are the best - for me that means white, gray, mud and black, and, of course, very pale pink.
A bunch of fresh cut flowers creates that extra fresh & cosy feeling.
4. Limit daytime naps
Of course, if you sleep too much it will disturb your night time sleep.
5. Include physical activity in your daily routine
This is something I have experience - when I do sports during the day, normally in the morning, I have more energy for the whole day and sleep much better too.
6. Manage worries
We all know how difficult this may be when you're having hrd time in your life, but it would help a lot if you could solve the issues before bedtime. Somtimes a small thing can become overly huge at night.
