Our daily lives can become so busy that we disconnect from the art of slowing down and relaxing. This can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed and anxious, making it harder to sleep at night with our minds in overdrive. As World Sleep Day approaches, this guide will help you have a peaceful nights sleep using techniques such as meditation and breathwork.
Have A Sleep Schedule
To improve your sleep, try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day. It is also advised to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle and you will see a big improvement in your sleeping pattern!
No Midnight Snacks
A great tip is to not go to bed hungry but also avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up! Caffeine and alcohol deserve caution too - the stimulating effects take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on quality sleep. And even though alcohol might make you feel sleepy, it can disrupt sleep later in the night!
Create A Restful Environment
Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet. Exposure to light might make it more challenging to fall asleep. Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Allow the fresh air and light to clean the home’s energy during the day, so that you can have a peaceful sleeping environment in the evening.
Light A Bedtime Candle
Candles always serve a purpose; they create a calming energy in your home and help us feel relaxed. Bedtime candles are a great way to promote a peaceful aura. Lighting a candle whilst meditating in the evening is also a really good method to clear your mind, unwind and relax before bedtime.
