What happens in our body during this important resting phase, we have reported in our article “NightActive”. But what to do if sleep doesn’t always work so well?
With these 10 simple sleeping tips you are sure to travel well to the dream country!
IN DUNKELN IS GOOD SLEEP
The darker the room, the more melatonin releases our bodies. Melatonin is a hormone that promotes falling asleep and sleep quality. It is also an important antioxidant and stimulates nightrepair repair processes. Therefore: Darken the rooms as well as possible.
SLEEP CYCLE RULES
For well-being and inner peace, people need balance, including sleep: Regular sleep times and rest in the bedroom contribute to optimal relaxation.
ENJOYABLE SLEEP KILLERS
Caffeine-containing drinks such as coffee, green and black tea certainly have their stimulant effects, but in terms of sleep there is also a negative side effect: the effect of the watchmakers can even last up to six hours and rob you of sleep ! Especially sleep-sensitive people should reconsider their “afternoon coffee-terl”.
“SHUT DOWN” THE BODY
That means: before bed hands away from the TV, mobile phone & similar sources of irritation! If you can’t fall asleep yet, a relaxing book or quiet music are the best companions to a restful sleep!
EASY TO SLEEP
Don’t go to bed with a full stomach! At least 3-4 hours before bedtime you should refrain from lavish & especially strongly seasoned and/or sugary meals.
NEVERTHELESS A GOOD “UNDERLAY”
You should not underestimate the importance of your “sleeping pads”: A good mattress in the right strength and shape, high-quality bedding and a pleasant, skin-friendly duvet cover can prevent many sleep and back problems from the outset!
Pay attention to your sleeping climate: The optimal conditions for a good sleep are a well-ventilated bedroom and temperatures between 16-18°. It is best to ventilate generously just before bedtime.
OF COURSE FALL ASLEEP
Synthetic sleep aids in particular change sleep properties and have, among other things, a high addictive potential! Ideally, one should try to do without artificial preparations in its entirety.
SPORT DOES WELL
If you exercise a few hours before bed, it’s best to sleep!
HAPPY TO SLEEP
How stress and inner restlessness affect our sleep, each of us has already experienced! This makes it all the more important to introduce a routine, to banish all thoughts that make sleep difficult out of bed.
