Here are everyday habits that will affect your bedtime.
1. Avoid drinking a lot of beverages before sleeping. This will urge your body to pee later in the night and will affect the quality of your sleep.
2. Don’t sleep during daytime. This will affect your body clock and make it harder for you to sleep at night.
3. Sleep away from appliances and electronics. The light, noise, and excess radiation will keep your brain active, thus preventing sleep.
4. Avoid too much reading before bedtime. Unnecessary strain will damage your eyes.
5. Don’t buy a cheap mattress. The quality of your bed will affect the overall quality of your sleep. Being uncomfortable will make you feel tired rather than rested in the morning.
6. Consume your meals 2 hours before sleeping. Sleeping when full will hamper the digestion process and prevent your body from fully resting.
7. Do a bit of exercise before sleeping, this will improve your health and give you a deep and relaxing sleep.
8. Prevent your feet from getting cold. Use heating pads or socks to heat your feet.
9. Help your body get used to a schedule, do 1-2-3 routines like: use the bathroom, brush your teeth, wash your face. In the long run, this will help your body remember when you are preparing for sleep and adjust accordingly.
10. Research for the best sleeping position or remember which position your body is most comfortable with. This will help your body gain the fullest benefit from sleep and prevent you from waking up with zero energy.
