Have A Good Sleep

Updated on August 30, 2009

Sleep should be accorded as equal an importance as our food and fresh air. Studies reveal that poor sleep habits will lead to serious health consequences and women beat men in poor sleep. These women with poor sleep tend to suffer from cardiovascular risks and type 2 diabetes. You can overcome this disorder if you follow these simple tips:

1. If you have a regular schedule for going to bed and getting up, your body releases a hormone called melatonin, which makes you sleepy. Consistency in adopting the same timings will help you in getting good sleep easily.

2. Caffeine drinks such as coke, red bull, etc. should be avoided so as to overcome this disorder. You may like to get rid of your exhaustion by relying upon these drinks. But you should remember that having a nice sleep will relieve you of your exhaustion better than these drinks. You should also avoid heavy food and alcohol before your night sleep because these will affect deep sleep.

3. You should relax before you go to bed every night. You should not be brooding over what happened during the day or about the chores and tasks you have to do the next day. If you relax your mind, that unwinds you to a great extent. You can read an interesting book for some time or listen to some soothing music or meditate. Breathing exercises help you in toning down your excitement and worry levels. You might have observed that you breathe easy if you are relieved of a worry. The converse is also true. You can bring your worries under control by practicing good breathing exercises. Since emotions like worries control our health, if you bring your worries under your control, you can have a good night's sleep and lead a healthy and happy life.
