How to Have a Good Night’s Sleep Every Night

Life’s too short for the alarm clock!

How many times has your alarm clock woken you up prematurely from a deep slumber? How many times have you wished that you could just tuck yourself back into bed, even though the sun outside is shining bright? Two situations that we’re all too familiar with! According to research, one of the most important things for good health, both mental and physical, is a good night’s sleep. Whether the problem is sluggish behaviour or a crabby mood, the solution, almost always, is related to a comfortable slumber which leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Unfortunately, thanks to our hectic schedules and an almost non-existent work-life balance, sleep is something that continues to elude us. However, there are little things that you can do every day to ensure that you’re getting your due hours of sleep every night. Wondering what they are? Here are some simple things, which if you follow on a daily basis, will ensure a good night’s sleep every night!

Exercise

Exercise helps you sleep. Probably not the first time you’re reading about this, but it is after all a fact. Exercising, especially cardio related workouts, does wonders for your sleep pattern because it is imperative to be both mentally and physically fatigued to ensure good sleep. The only thing to remember is that you must have at least a four hour gap between the time you exercise and when you decide to tuck in for the night for optimum results.

Eat Right

Sleep and food are very closely related. Several studies suggest that once you start keeping your diet in check, you automatically begin to sleep longer and in a more complete manner. From eating the right kind of food throughout the day to reducing caffeine intake closer to bedtime, eating right is compulsory if you value your rest at the end of each day. Always remember, the better you eat, the better you sleep.

Stick to a Schedule

While there are very few things that can match up to the happiness of a mid-morning nap, it is important to understand that sleeping is not an ad-hoc activity, if you want to do it right, then there’s a schedule that you have to maintain. Going to bed at a particular time and then waking up at a particular time, even on weekends, is an absolute must if you’re yearning for a good night’s sleep because it keeps your biological clock steady.

Get Comfortable

Sleep is a comforting thing and in order to ensure that it remains so, we must make an effort to turn the environment in which we sleep as comfortable as possible. The layout of your bedroom must be one that is conducive to sleep and not too cluttered, the temperature should always be optimum (ranging between 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit) and you could even go for soothing sleep inducing essential oils, like Lavender,  just before calling it a night!

Create a Ritual

Sleeping is a ritual and its best if we grasp the nuances of it from the get go. Like any ritual, there are several dos and don’ts that are involved with respect to a good night’s sleep. From maintaining a particular time to not over-eating just before going to bed, from giving yourself down time after a workout to shutting yourself out of all factors that alleviate stress, if you want to sleep well every night, then you must follow your sleep ritual to the T.

Sleep peacefully, wake-up happily – that should be everyone’s motto!
