How to get better sleep

Good sleep is an important part not only in training but also in weight loss. In modern society, it is difficult to keep a good sleep: work, stress, children, health problems, food. Many factors affect our well-being before going to bed. Poor sleep can cause a bad mood, heart problems, depression, irritability and a lot of small diseases. In this article, you will learn all the modern ways to fight against insomnia.

The older the person, the shorter the duration of his sleep. There is an opinion that with age the need for sleep decreases. But it’s not. In 60 or 80 years, our body requires as much sleep as in 40 years. Just the brain loses the ability to generate the necessary amount of sleep. With age, the quality of sleep also deteriorates. The person begins to wake up more often at night because of pain or frequent urge to the toilet.

Book for better sleep?

Do not read or watch TV before bed. A good book or program will not allow your brain to calm down and relax for a long time. For people with chronic insomnia watching TV and reading books before bed is contraindicated.

What I should dress in the morning?

Try not to do anything particularly active in the second half of the evening. In General, try not to think about problems or plan activities for tomorrow before going to bed.

Calm down, sis

Some doctors, especially Eastern-wing, recommend performing breathing exercises to help relax.

20 minutes

Your bed is for sleeping there, not spinning. If sleep does not come after 15-20 minutes then you need to get up and do relaxation auto-training or just find something to help you relax.

Open the window

Keep your bedroom cool, and be sure to ventilate before going to bed. It’s hard to fall asleep when we’re hot or cold.

It’s a fluffy sheep, right?

Don’t count sheep or elephants or anything else trying to sleep. The account provokes the activity of some areas of the brain, and sleep will be even more difficult.

I’ll work a little and go straight to bed

Do not engage in physical activity immediately before bedtime. It is advisable to finish all training exercises 3 hours before going to bed.

What is this, a pie?

Do not overeat, the last meal should be 2-3 hours before bedtime. Sometimes full up the stomach, we may go to sleep, but it will not work on a permanent basis. Also, do not drink coffee, do not smoke, and do not drink alcohol before going to bed.

Open eyes

If you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep, don’t force yourself to sleep, get up and do something else. When you feel sleepy again, go to bed.

I’m not afraid of anything unless the sheeps

If you woke up because of a nightmare, try to come up with a pleasant ending to a terrible dream. You’ll find it easier to sleep.

Dream song

Try listening to chill music before going to bed. I really like to listen to the radio before going to bed. Some people have a soothing voice.

Honey give me a honey

A spoonful of honey will also help you sleep better. Honey has the ability to strengthen the nervous system, which is responsible for sleep.
