There is an Irish proverb that goes, ‘A good laugh and long sleep are the two best cures for anything.’ Sleep is often underrated. In the busy schedules of modern day life, most people don’t give enough importance to the optimum amount of sleep a human body & mind needs. So, on this World Sleep Day, here’s what you need to make sure that you have a balanced sleep cycle for a healthy life.
Early to bed and early to rise
Your body needs minimum 8 hours of sleep to function properly. So, it’s best if you can practise a sleep cycle that starts early & ends early too. Have a light, early dinner and try to go to sleep by 9-9.30 pm, so that you can be up by 6 am and enjoy the day to the fullest! Late nights can hamper your sleeping pattern and your health in turn, while by sleeping till late in the morning, you miss out on enjoying the fresh & healthy morning air.
Tips and tricks for sound sleep
A good night’s sleep is as important for the body and mind, as is proper nutrition and daily exercise. For that, it’s best to avoid any kind of nap during the daytime. Cut down on caffeine in the later half of the day. You can also take a relaxing bath before bedtime, to help soothe your nerves and for a restful sleep. Make sure your mattress and pillows are comfortable, as ones that are not ergonomic can affect your back or shoulders and cause discomfort during sleep.
