All we need every day is to be fresh and ready to carry on. Every one of us has a different goal that they live for achieving. Whether that to run a business, build a family, get more marks on your next test, train for the next Olympic goal, or just maybe to carry on to the next day. We all have goals to meet, and all we need is to be just ready to start the day fresh and bright.
From my humble experience, I’d typically need 7-8 hours of sleep to help me recover for the next day and below is usually what I do to reach there.
Here, I like to share with you some tips I find very useful after researching best ways to get better and faster sleeping time. Thanks to Health.com for sharing their insights in such a beautiful way. You can also watch their one minute video right here!
First and for most, avoid afternoon CAFFEINE. Coffee or tea can mess with your sleep even if we drink them hours before sleep. I like to get my last coffee drink, if ever, right before noon time. That way I make sure to get it off my system by the time I wind down to go to bed to get some rest.
Second, take a HOT BATH. Cooling down your body temperature can dramatically help you to fall asleep so much faster. I like to do that an hour before bedtime so that I can set the mood right before I dive into sleep.
Third, bring the LIGHTS down. It is quite important to bring light down as you set the mood right before bed time. I like just to put off all electronic equipment I have in the house including but not limited to (TV, phones, WiFi system, microwave). I only turn a very dimmed light of my table lamp next to the bed just to help read a little before I get ready to sleep.
Fourth, keep the ROOM temperature cool enough. A lot of people I know including myself sleep much faster when the room temperature is cold enough. I usually keep it between 18-20 Celsius depending on the weather condition.
Fifth, wear SOCKS to bed. It improves the blood circulation in the extremities, which can help you sleep more quickly. I usually try to be fully covered because I know from experience I’d wake up if am not covered well due to getting cold, and that can affect my quiet period on a greater level.
Sixth and last, relax the right way. Make sure to try different progressions until you find your best position and stay there until you completely fall asleep.
