Having a healthy lifestyle doesn’t consist of a good diet and daily exercise only. Having poor bedtime habits are one of the worst factors that drain our energy and creates fatigue, depression and body pain.
Balancing our life is a very important if not essential element for the sanity of our mind, body and soul.
Today I am sharing with some of my sleeping habits to try and some other to avoid.
Going to bed too early even if you are not tired or too late when you are over tired can make it very difficult to have a good night sleep. You have to change your sleeping routine. Try to sleep every night at the same time and wake up at the time. Fixed sleeping schedule will make your sleeping much better and easier, Trust me on this, it changed mylife. To achieve this I had to put the alarm everyday at the time so I can train my biological watch until I succeeded to achieve my goal, FIXED Sleeping schedule.
Also, always set your room temperature on 19 or 20 degree celsius. Sleeping in a room that is too cold or too hot prevent our body from napping.
Prepare a nice mood in your room, always have your favorite sent or candle in the room with clean and soft linen. Make sure your pillow and mattress are comfy and clean as well.
Use a calm and pastel color in your bedroom for the sheets and paint. Create a calm environment where you can relax and chill.
Bad Habits to Ditch:
1. Late-Night Caffeine and Alcohol: Avoiding Caffeine two to three hours before bedtime is not enough, since caffeine stays effective in our system for 7 hours. Shift to Decaffeinated coffee or tea 6 hours before time. For a better lifestyle if you cannot stop caffeine completely like myself, try to have your last caffeinated coffee at 4 pm. however, Alcohol are to be stopped 2 hours before bedtime, because alcohol can interfere with melatonin, the hormone that aids in sleep, and disturb our sleep cycle.
Sweet dreams love…
