REM cycles, and (lack of) sleep stages keeping you up at night? Enter your sleep zone the right way! We’re bringing you a whole bunch of ways to clock in those zzz’s and better yet – to never underestimate the real power of a good night’s rest.
That’s one small step for man and a giant SLEEP for mankind!
Let’s Scent it!
Scented candles, fairy lights and anything to create a comfort zone that puts you right in the zone. They visibly help you relax and unwind and are known to lower stress levels. Light it up and bring back that ‘state of calm’ that your body will definitely be thankful for!
Your last meal of the day needs to be consumed at least 3 hours before you go to bed. That gives your body enough time to digest the food and helps in better gut health and metabolic system. And yes, that means No snacking in bed either!
A brew can do it!
Caffeine & caffeinated products can keep you up all night – so stay off them! Even the smallest shot of coffee can significantly disrupt your sleep – and worse still can have detrimental effects on your functioning throughout the day. If you do happen to consume caffeine 6 hours before you go to bed, then make sure to exercise or take a hot shower because that can help.
Remember listening to lullabies as kids and falling asleep instantly? That’s still a thumb rule when it comes to a good night’s sleep. The adulthood version of a lullaby is to establish a wholesome night-time routine. From light stretching and meditating to journaling, or listening to calming music, there’s a lot you can do to set yourself a relaxing ambience that’ll send you right to a magical dreamland.
Meantime, no screen time!
Ban those devices and screen grabs for at least an hour before you hit the sack and you’ll see that it does wonders for your sleep cycle. Staying away from bright white light can hinder you from getting that shut-eye when you need it the most. So switch off that device and log out well before you hit it!
