Having a healthy lifestyle means more than just exercising and dieting. To feel healthy, it is also necessary to sleep well. And sleep is more important than many people think.
Healthy sleep contributes to a healthier lifestyle and is needed to initiate recovery processes in the body. Sleeping is essential to function well during the day and a good sleep ensures that you feel fitter and that you can handle stress better. In this article, we will give you some tips on how to sleep better.
Develop a Sleep Rhythm
By going to bed at set times and getting up at set times, also during the weekend, you take care for your biological clock. Also, by going outside regularly during the day, you keep a natural rhythm of your biological clock. Don’t go to bed too late because your body will become more tired as soon as the sun goes down. An average sleep of seven to eight hours is fine.
Keep Your Sheets Fresh
During the research, many Americans declared that having fresh sheets makes them feel more excited about going to sleep. That’s why, if you want to sleep better, remember to wash your sheets regularly. You can add your favourite smell to a washing machine to achieve the best result.
Good Bed, Pillow and Blanket
Make sure you have a good mattress (not older than 10 years), a good pillow that grants the right support for your neck and sleeping position, and a comfortable blanket or quilt. According to researchers, pressure blankets can improve the quality of your sleep. Thus, you can get one and try it yourself!
Avoid Too Much Light Before You Go To Bed
Make sure that you are in a room without bright light for the last hour before you go to sleep.
A dark room will better prepare you for the night because your body then starts producing the sleep hormone called melatonin.
