Go to bed at a certain time every day
The night routine is very important, for kids and for adults too. You can start by going to bed every day at the same time. Even if you don’t fall asleep right away, you can stay in bed, meditate and rest.
No tasks after 7 p.m.
Insomnia is linked with stressful life. As nowadays, people have a lot of responsibilities at work and at home too. In the evening people are trying to do a lot of tasks, they get stressed out, overwhelmed and in the end they can’t fall asleep. That’s why is important that in the evening you don’t get stress out because you are thinking that you don’t have time to get all the tasks done. Is best not to schedule anything after 7 p.m. Just get ready for the bed routine, take a shower, listen some music, read a book and rest.
Limited screen time
According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, preliminary results from a new study indicate that greater amounts of daily screen time are associated with more insomnia symptoms and shorter sleep duration among adolescents. Results show that for social messaging, web surfing and TV/movie watching, insomnia symptoms and sleep duration fully explained the association between screen-based activities and depressive symptoms.
No devices in your bedroom
Your bedroom has to be a place where you can rest, meditate and sleep through the night. Its recommended that you don’t put any devices in the bedroom like TV, Computer, Cell Phone. You can listen to the music, or to listen to something pleasant, or meditate. But, it is important that you don’t have a screen, so your eyes and body can rest.
Choose a mattress that will relax your body
As insomnia is linked with stress, even our body can get tired and is not able to relax during the night. The mattress that we have can make insomnia even worse, as we have back pain and can’t fall asleep. A mattress that is not comfortable needs to be changed right away. Choose a mattress that gives you the necessary support, you won’t feel any back pain, will fall asleep easier and will sleep longer.
This is called – the gold rule – as caffeine is one of the most important reasons people can’t fall asleep. We have to limit the drinks that have caffeine, as coffee, tea, and other drinks that have caffeine in it. In the evening is best not to have any of these drinks that have caffeine in it, as this will make you stay awake during the night.
Don’t let insomnia change your life! Change your habits and enjoy sleeping all night long.
