Don’t just wake up, wake up fresh!

“Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.”

~ Thomas Dekker ~

Do you often hit the snooze button and crave for those ‘five more minutes’ of sleep? Do you feel groggy when you wake up, and feel like you have not slept at all? Do you get a disturbed sleep all throughout the night?
Waking up fresh in the morning is of vital importance for your body and mind. It also decides how productive and successful your day will be. This can only be achieved if you get a good night’s sleep. Sleep is the time when your body repairs and heals the major organs which are working round the clock. This is the time when your brain needs to be totally inactive to aid the healing and repairing process of the body.
With the stress induced lifestyle that we live in today’s age and time, getting a sound sleep and waking up fresh and energized in the morning seems to be a far-fetched reality. However, changing a few habits can get you the quality sleep.

Here are a few tips

Develop a Habit

You can setup your internal body clock and tune it up with your sleep time. This can be achieved by forming a habit. When we form a habit, our mind sub-consciously follows it. For example, if you decide to have your dinner at 8pm and hit the bed at 10pm, your body will get habituated to it and after a few days, you will start feeling sleepy at 10pm.

Environment Matters

Too much of light disrupts sleep. See that you have bare minimum or no light in the bedroom as per your comfort. Put on some soothing music, an aromatic candle or diffuser, and maintain a perfect temperature. See that your mattress has a natural cooling technology so that it doesn’t get heated up and disrupt your sleep.

Use Comfortable Bedding Solutions

Choose your Mattress , Pillows and comforter carefully. Though we underestimate their importance, it is a fact that we spend one-third of our life sleeping, and so it is of utmost importance that we invest in good Mattress and other accessories. They play a vital role in deciding our quality of our sleep .

Stay away from gadgets

Stay away from any electronic gadgets, be it your mobile phone, TV or laptop for at least an hour before you go to sleep. If you are trying to induce sleep, read a book instead of a kindle. Use a traditional alarm clock instead of setting an alarm on your mobile phone. These small changes will help you sleep better.

Be careful of what you eat or drink before sleeping

A heavy, spicy meal in the night will give you acidity and gas which will interrupt your sleep . Have a simple meal in the night which is easily digestible. Make sure that there is a gap of at least two hours between your dinner and sleep. Avoid alcohol or aerated drinks just before going to sleep, as that will interfere with your sleep quality. If you have problems falling asleep, a glass of warm milk can do the trick.

Use relaxation techniques

When you lie on the bed, empty your mind of all the thoughts. Sometimes, thoughts are persistent and very difficult to get rid of. You can try using a relaxation technique by focusing on your breath and trying to relax each and every part of your body. You will see that slowly your thought will disappear and you will fall asleep.

If, in spite of trying these simple tips or working on your habits does not make you feel fresh or energize you after waking up, then it is advisable to see your doctor or a sleep therapist.
