Let’s sleep better –
Try to set a time for bed:
When you bind everything in routine, your life becomes way better. The same goes with sleep. Fix a proper time of sleeping and make sure to hit the bed in the said time every night. This will also help you get up in the morning without an alarm.
Try not to sleep during weekends:
If you sleep too much in the odd-hours, your daily need of sleep is compensated. Hence, when you try to roll back into routine in the weekdays, sleep pulls a royal ditch on you. If you are sleeping a lot during weekends, stop immediately.
Take some power napping:
There are days when you feel too exhausted after the gym, work or household chores and your eyes are laden with sleep. Try smart napping at the time and limit your sleep to 15-20 minutes, not more than that. This will help you sleep better in nights.
You should fight after dinner drowsiness:
Usually when your stomach is full, your eyes are full of sleep but you need to fight that by doing something else more intriguing like reading or watching a movie. Hitting the bed right after the dinner will make your body accumulate more fat too so you need to be more cautious about this. Try to keep awake for at least 45 minutes after being done with your dinner.
These are the simple methods that will boost your good night’s sleep.
