A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP 3 SIMPLE TIPS
Has anyone ever encountered this scenario (or some variant of it) before?
You’re on your way home from work and you’re feeling tired. After being caught in traffic for the zillionth time, you become angry and anxious. You walk into your home only to find that you still have to get dinner ready and do the chores. Hey, this happens every day so it’s not a big deal…
You quickly throw some overpriced TV dinners into the microwave and get to work on the chores, knowing that soon you’d have to help the kids with their homework. Not to mention getting them ready for bed…
After throwing the laundry in the machine, you get started on those other tasks while the kids eat their dinner in front of the TV, happy for some semblance of quiet.
You finally lay down after everything is done and look at the time. You’ll be able to spend at least 30 minutes on yourself, and then it’s time for bed, ready to repeat the routine all over again. You’re frustrated, you’re lost, and you feel angry all the time. Welcome to what many of us do day to day and yet still try to find ways of looking after ourselves. Have you ever asked, “what can I do?”. Here are 3 simple tips to get you started in achieving a great night’s rest, one of the most vitally important things for your health!
Obtain a notebook. Make sure that you write down a little entry into it just before you lay down to go to sleep. Make sure that it includes a summary of how you feel, what your thoughts are, and basically anything that you feel the need to express. You can also include To-Do lists. This will let you debrief the day’s events and ensure a good night of uninterrupted sleep.
Either buy a new alarm clock or set your current ones to allow classical music that gradually increases in volume. Set it for 15 to 20 minutes before you want to wake up. Feel the glory of Mozart, or whoever you like, fill your mind and body.
Swap out all of those sugar-loaded, unhealthy snacks and opt for some fresh baby carrots or celery sticks instead. The healthy snack option will keep you sharp and focused during the day, and able to slumber peacefully during the night.
