For better health, A good sleep of 6-8 hours is crucial to the body and its maximum functionality. Sleep is essential for healthy brain function but it’s been a year since the pandemic-induced lockdown and work from home put our daily schedules into disarray. We often lose track of our decreasing sleep times as our lives continue to be taken over by studies, work, and play.
On World Sleep Day 2021, Here are 05 Tips to Sleep Better at Night:
Do not underestimate the value of sleep. So for this, the most important thing is the right pillow. This is why choosing a pillow that supports the natural curve of your neck and is not too fat or not too flat will help you wake up without being tired or with a stiff neck in the morning.
Another important tip to better sleep is a good sleeping position and for that do not twist your neck, avoid sleeping on your stomach. Instead, sleep on your side with your nose up with the center of your body.
Eat Healthy for a night of better sleep. Don’t go to bed hungry and avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up. Avoid Nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol.
Do exercise as including physical activity in your daily routine can promote better sleep. Avoid being active too close to bedtime, however.
If you are stressed, that tend to have difficulty falling asleep, then practice Yoga and meditation.
