Some Tips Of Sleeping Well

Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together-Thomas Dekker.

Most of us think that sleeping well has to do solely with a good air conditioner that gives out an arctic blast on hot and clammy nights. Well it helps, but it is not the only fact that will ensure a sound night sleep. Getting good sound sleep is quite important. Sleep deprivation can cause an array of health problems. The modern lifestyle has its share of depression, tensions and stress. These have played a big role in making sleep an elusive factor. Although you might not be able to control all of the factors that interfere with your sleep, you can adopt habits that encourage better sleep. Start with these simple sleep tips.

Get your painted in light colors

It has often been found that color therapy has big role to play in rendering good sleep. Always get your bedroom painted in light colors such as blue, yellow etc. Blue slows your heart rate and therefore relaxes you. People who sleep in blue rooms have been found to be sleeping almost 7 to 8 hours per night. Purple, brown and golden colors are best avoided as they stimulate the brain and make it difficult to nod off. Beside this make your room cool, dark and quiet. Use ear plugs and fans to feel cosy.

Maintain a sleeping schedule

There is nothing better than having a routine in your day-to-day life. The same goes for sleeping and waking too. This will help to reinforce the body’s sleeping and waking cycle. However there is a caveat here. If you go to bed and do not fall asleep in 15 minutes it is better to get and do something relaxing. Go back to bed when you're tired. Do not panic over not falling asleep. This will make sleep even more elusive.

Eat and drink normally before going to bed

Do not go to bed either in half filled, or in over stuff stomach. This is because both of these will make you uncomfortable and that will keep you up till late. Also don’t drink too much water before you go to sleep to prevent disruptive middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet. Avoid Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol. All these have a stimulating effect and will wreak havoc on the quality of sleep.

Have a bedtime ritual

It is always useful to have a bedtime ritual. You should do something very relaxing when you go to bed. This will be a signal for your body to gradually adjust itself to sleeping mode. Sleep time ritual would include – reading books, listening to soft music etc. These activities will help in better transition between willfulness and drowsiness. Avoid TV viewing during sleep. Experts opine that screen-time can only increase your wakefulness.

Buy comfortable bedding

Not all design of pillows and mattresses will suit all. Therefore know which design suits you the best and buy accordingly. If you share your bed, then there should be enough space for both of you. Do not often have pets to sleep with you. Keep separate rooms for children.

Makes sure you’re a/c works well

Have a maintenance service for your cooler so that it functions at the peak efficiency. Program your air conditioner so that it provides the required cooling level in different phases of the night. You need not get up to change temperature when you feel almost freezing. This will disrupt sleep. Remember to set a reminder to switch out your air filters every month or two and ponder using a high-efficiency air purification system if you want to increase your indoor air quality even more.
