Do you really require a good environment for sleep? Well, this is a million dollar question. Sleep does not require any kind of requirements. But if we sleep without any sort of discipline, then there won’t be any difference between us and animals. By discipline, I mean as a human being, we need to follow certain guidelines. Mentioned below are some guidelines which may help you to get good sleep:
- Have your dinner early and peacefully. A light dinner is always good for your body. As there won’t be any activity except sleeping, it is always best to have a light dinner. Your body will have some rest when you sleep. If you eat heavy dinner, then the body will be in working position as it has to convert the food particles you eat to energy. The whole purpose of sleeping is lost if your body doesn’t get sufficient rest. Not only by food, even by good sleep can you gain health and energy.
- After dinner, make a practice of reading a good book/magazine as per your choice. This helps in making you sleep early. Even listening to good music also helps in getting good sleep.
- I am not preaching about some religion, but praying to God is also a good habit before sleeping. Meditation is the best practice that everyone should follow.
- Keep your surroundings neat and clean. Surroundings here refer to the place nearby your sleep area. Keeping it dust free is good.
- A good mattress will provide good sleep. The mattress you purchase should not be too hard or too soft.
- The lighting arrangement in your sleep area should be considered for proper sleep. In other words, when you sleep to ensure that there are no artificial lights such as fluorescent bulbs or LEDs because it always disturbs your sleeping patterns. Even if it is necessary,make sure that it gives low light that is not so effective. But the problem in using blubs and LED’s is that they produce artificial light and blue light also as well. Let’s check out the blue light facts. The blue light is that wavelength released by smartphones, LED lamps, television, computer screen, laptops, etc. It helps to increase the attention you require and uplifts your moods. This is very effective in the daytime, but at night time it may really create problems for you. Our body is made in such a way that it works automatically based on the light it is exposed to. In the daytime, it is exposed to light, so one can find themselves very active. But at night a person requires rest and has to sleep, and any sort of lighting will distract the sleep. So to have a good sleep, it is better to avoid any sort of lighting in the sleeping area.
Even after following these guidelines, your problem is not solved, then you need to change your life and your habits and turn towards maintaining good health. Approach an experienced health consultant or physician to solve your problem of sleeplessness because if left untreated, it may create a big issue in your life.
