DAY OF SLEEP
The 5 pillars of health include a balanced, healthy diet, sufficient exercise & water and a healthy psyche, as well as regular, healthy sleep. What all happens in our body during this important resting phase, we have reported in our article “Nocturnal”. But what can you do if you don’t always get the best sleep?
With these 10 simple sleep tips, you’re sure to be well on your way to dreamland!
SLEEPING IN THE DARK IS GOOD
The darker the room, the more melatonin our body releases. Melatonin is a hormone that promotes falling asleep and sleep quality. It is also an important antioxidant and boosts nighttime repair processes. Therefore: darken the room as much as possible.
REGULATE SLEEP CYCLE
For well-being and inner peace, people need balance, and this also applies to sleep: regular sleeping times and quiet in the bedroom contribute to optimal rest.
ENJOYABLE SLEEP KILLERS
Caffeinated beverages such as coffee, green and black tea certainly have their stimulating effect, but in terms of sleep accordingly also a negative side effect: The effect of the stimulants can even last up to six hours and rob you of sleep! Those who are particularly sensitive to sleep should reconsider their “afternoon coffee”.
“SHUTTING DOWN” THE BODY
This means: before going to bed, hands off the TV, cell phone & similar sources of stimulus overload! If you still can’t fall asleep, a relaxing book or quiet music are the best companions to a restful sleep!
EASY TO SLEEP
Do not go to bed with a full stomach! At least 3-4 hours before going to bed, one should avoid sumptuous & especially strongly spiced and/or sugary meals.
NEVERTHELESS A GOOD “BASE
You should not underestimate the importance of your “sleeping pads”: A good mattress of the right thickness and shape, high-quality bedding and a comfortable, skin-friendly bed cover can prevent many sleep and back problems from the outset!
Pay attention to your sleeping climate: The optimal conditions for a good night’s sleep are a well-ventilated bedroom and temperatures between 16-18°. It is best to air the room generously just before going to bed.
FALL ASLEEP NATURALLY
Synthetic sleeping pills in particular alter sleep properties and have a high potential for addiction, among other things! Ideally, one should try to get along entirely without artificial preparations.
SPORT DOES GOOD
Those who exercise a few hours before bedtime sleep best!
HAPPY TO SLEEP
Every one of us has experienced how negatively stress and inner turmoil affect our sleep! This makes it all the more important to establish a routine of banishing from bed all thoughts that make sleep difficult.
