6 tips to sleep better at night

Ask a young school child tips on how to sleep better, and they would just say do one thing, keep all their books away and tuck themselves into that Chhota Bheem designed quilt and slowly go into the land of candies, chocolates, action heroes and fairies.

Do you remember that once upon a time you too were the same?

Cut to circa 2016, advancement of technology, and a stress life has left you with more of worries and less of sleep. Less sleep leads to bad skin, bad hair, hormonal imbalances and a host of other problems. So, if you have been getting less sleep and thinking ways to get more sound sleep, here are some handy tips which will help you to have a proper and sound sleep.

-Turn off the electronic gadgets. One of the main reason that we are awake till late in the night is due to these gadgets which have made communication open 24*7. Keep your work away from your bed time routine. Less sleep also affects on your work output. So keep all your gadgets on silent mode and away from your bed.

-Stick to a sleeping schedule. It is important to stick to a sleeping pattern. Set a time when no matter what you will go to sleep, and also make sure you also fix a time to wake up. Initially you will find it a little difficult to adjust to new timings but soon you will get used to it. They don't say early to bed, early to rise for a reason.

-Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Create an environment which is cool and quiet. You can opt for room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs.

-Use bed, pillows, bed-covers and bed sheets which makes you comfortable. Many still prefer simple floral printed bed-sheets to make them feel like they are amidst a garden. Whatever soothes you use them.

-Do not watch any horror visuals before going off to bed. For that matter any disturbing visuals which will keep you awake pushing sleep away from you.

-Do not skip workouts. Regular exercise helps you sleep better, as long as you avoid doing it right before bedtime. A post-workout burst of energy can keep you awake. Try to finish your workouts 3 to 4 hours before your bedtime. more
