How to Sleep Better
If you have issues eating food before you sleep fret not. There are plenty of other ways to induce sleepiness without eating among them are the following:
1. A Bit of Exercise:
Exercising is a great way to not only get in shape but to also get you the kind of fatigue where you know you’ll fall asleep the moment you lie down.
No, we’re not saying you should get pumped before bed, as sometimes that could have an opposite effect, but rather do some activities that’s just enough for you to sweat a bit. And hey! If you’re aiming to slim down a bit, exercising beats diet supplements for weight loss.
These exercises could be the likes of taking a stroll around the neighborhood for a few rounds or doing some last minute housework you’re not able to do in the day.
2. The Bed is not Your Office Desk:
You have to condition your brain into thinking that bedroom equals sleep and not work and play. Most who suffer from sleep disruption are those who browse the internet or those who take calls and do their office work while on top of their beds. This makes your brain think that the bedroom is for work while the uncomfortable couch in the living room in front of the television is for sleep.
3. Go Easy on the Joe:
Remember all that coffee or energy drinks you drank to stay awake at work? Sometimes it takes more than 8 hours for their effects to go down and this is bad especially if you consume them like water.
As much as we love our coffee (or any other sports drink) we really have to control our consumption else our sleep patterns can change dramatically.
The video below even provides scientific insight on the ideal time to consume your coffee:
