7 tricks for better sleep

You really need more sleep. Unless you’re that statistical exception ( 1/100 ) who actually gets enough sleep.

Without enough sleep, you are knowingly increasing your risks of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and let’s add unwanted weight.

You are not well concentrated and can cause traffic accidents. Your performance and learning also suffer because you are simply not using your maximum capacity.

Also, you feel disgusting, sleepy and extremely irritable.

People don’t get enough sleep for a variety of reasons. In general, because we go to bed too late and have to get up too early, drink or smoke too much, we are exposed to continuous fears and anxieties accompanied by stress.< /p>

Some simply suffer from health problems such as insomnia, sleep apnea, etc., completely excluding sleep from their daily routine.

Of course, the amount of sleep you need to feed your body is strictly individual for each individual. Factors such as whether you are sick, have worked hard or are simply under constant stress also play a part in it.

As we all know, Rome wasn’t built in a day, so you’ll need consistency here too. Here are some steps that will invariably improve your sleep and teach your body to make enough time for rest as well.

1. Determine how much time you will spend sleeping each night. Make a plan that includes what time you should get up in the morning.

If you are used to going to bed around 11pm every night, start little by little to change this number by around 10-15 minutes earlier until you learn to go to bed at 9.30pm for example or you start to feel significantly fresher in the early morning.

2. Stick to your priorities. Which is more important, your own health or walking outside for another hour? Or maybe the evening show is more important to you than your health and condition the next morning?

3. Isn’t it nice to go to bed earlier and get up first in the morning, in a great mood, positive and charged for a wonderful day, while others are still snoring? Give your brain some of that feeling, and in the future, it will want it on its own, closing your eyelids more often, as a sign of its desire to rest.

4. If you cannot sleep peacefully consider different optimal ways or seek medical help. But before that, definitely try an hour or twobefore bed to relax, maybe with a hot bath or spend time on your hobby.

Eating, especially foods like chocolate, or consuming stimulant drinks like coffee, energy drinks, or alcohol is out of the question.

Make sure the environment is good for a great sleep, slightly cool, comfortable mattress, no unnecessary irritants like family, pet, phone, computer, tablet or TV and then you will really have a great and sound sleep!

5. Do what you know helps you fight stress. Do sports or your own hobbies. This way you will stop the hormone cortisol that chronic stress reproduces. This hormone is the main culprit of restless sleep and even insomnia.

6. Think about the wonderful day you are about to experience, about the nice people you will meet during the next 24 hours. This way you will be able to fall asleep easier and you will also be full of positivity, which will undoubtedly improve the quality of your sleep.

7. Relax ! Tighten and relax every muscle in your body starting at your toes and working your way up to your chin. Think of pleasant things. This way you will undoubtedly kill the accumulated stress and fall asleep more easily. Good night!
