Are you tired of waking up in the middle of the night? Does it cause stress, and are you concerned about sleep deprivation?
Do you think it is hampering you from reaching your optimum health?
If you have answered yes to these questions, keep reading this article to discover what you can do about it.
Get a Warm Bath
Take a short, hot shower as it will help your muscles get relaxed and calm your nerves. Try using some fragrant shower gels or mild shampoos, as they will help you get into a relaxing state of mind.
Apply Lavender Oil
The key to getting an uninterrupted REM sleep is to calm the mind. Apply and rub some over your temples, neck, wrists, ear lobes, and even a bit on the scalp. Inhaling it will do wonders for your sleep.
Wear Comfortable Clothing
Make sure you are wearing comfortable and breathable clothing as you sleep.
I prefer wearing pure fabrics like cotton as they allow for airflow and let you sleep comfortably in the room.
Also, make sure your bed is clean with comfortable bedding and pillowcases.
Do Some Exercises
Exercising can help you get the excess buildup of the stress out from the body and physically exhaust yourself, so once you hit the bed, your body automatically shifts to a relaxed mode. The more tired you are by the end of the day, the more you will be able to get a night of uninterrupted sleep at night.
Switch Off your Phone
Electronic devices excite your stress levels with their radiations and the notifications.
It is in your best interest to stay away from these gadgets two hours before sleep, as they can drastically affect the way you feel during the night.
The blue light can mess up with the melatonin production and the sleeping hormone, which can affect your REM sleep.
Set the room temperature to a comfortable degree with the temperature control device. Make use of a comfy blanket if the room is cold.
You also need to make sure your bedroom doesn't have any lighting coming through that would affect your melatonin levels, consider using a blackout curtain.
Get Some Comfy Food
We don't mean that you should eat a bucket of ice cream here – drink some warm milk with added honey instead. Eating a handful of almonds will also help you to get a good night's sleep.
These tips should get you on your way to a great night's rest of uninterrupted sleep.
