We all know that getting good sleep at night has a direct impact on how we feel during the day. If you sleep poorly even one night, you will probably feel sluggish and tired the next day. If you continually get poor sleep it can lead to some serious health problems also.
Here are a few things we must stop doing before going to bed for a sound sleep:
- Going To Bed Late: Early to bed and early to rise is a wise saying that you can adopt in your sleep timetable. Starting off the day right can lead to increased productivity and focus throughout the day. Going late to bed is not good for your body. Your body needs good rest for many repairing processes that are essential to keep yourself healthy.
- Clean Bedroom: You may be surprised to discover that the room you sleep in can actually prevent you from having a good night’s sleep. It’s wise to get rid of the clutter around your bed. Keeping your bedroom clear of distractions will help you clear your mind at the end of a long day.
- You don’t keep a regular sleep schedule: Many think they can make up for lost hours of sleep by going to bed earlier the next day, but our biological clock doesn’t work that way, it prefers consistency. Some people just decide to “give up” and play on their computer or watch TV instead of staying in bed because “they can’t sleep,” exposing them to sources of light and irritation that only exacerbate the problem.
- Do not go to bed immediately after having dinner: You must give a gap of two hours between your dinner and the time you go to sleep. This is because your body doesn’t let you sleep until the digestion process is complete.
- Lead to poor eating habits: Many research found that staying up late makes you eat more and, oftentimes, worse. As the results of that study suggest, we start craving denser food with less beneficial kinds of fat when we stay up past our bedtime, which can ultimately lead to poor health.
- Avoid caffeine and nicotine close to bedtime: Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants that, when taken within 3 hours of bedtime, can make it difficult to go to sleep or stay asleep until the chemicals wear off.
