Sleep - how to ensure sound sleep ( & thereby, a good mood throughout the day & good health

Our sleep affects our health and our general mood throughout the day. If you're tossing and turning, are restless, snore, or feel sleepy during the day, then you may be having problems getting the deep sleep you need. There are basically three different kinds of sleep disorders, one for each dosha. When you have trouble falling asleep, that is typically because of too much Vata. If you fall asleep, and then wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep, that is indicative of a Pitta imbalance. When you can't seem to get enough sleep, you have trouble waking up in the morning, then that shows an overabundance of Kapha. There are lots of reasons why we may have trouble sleeping, and no matter what they are, Ayurveda has solutions to help us get that good night's rest.
- One basic rule, which applies equally to most of those, who complain of lack or sleep or hunger is - THAT THE REAL PROBLEM IS NOT GETTING THESE, BUT NOT GETTING THESE AT PROPER TIME. AND FOR THAT WE HAVE TO TRAIN OUR BODY CLOCK, BY OBSERVING A REGULAR SCHEDULE .
-Clear your head of all ideas & thinking about office, family problems etc. Think only of art, academic, spiritual or religious matters.
- Few slow & deep breathings help.
-Avoid caffeine, especially after noon.
-Eat a light meal between 5 and 7 pm. This will give you time to digest before you go to sleep, so that you body can rest more soundly. ONE SHOULD NEITHER BE HUNGARY, NOR HEAVILY FILLED UP, BEFORE GOING TO BED.
-An hour before bed, relax. Avoid stimulating activities such as working on the computer, or watching the nightly news. Take a nice bath, or listen to music. Use this time to wind down. Take slow, deep breaths.
-Get to bed by 10 pm. This is still Kapha time, when our body naturally wants to rest.
-Wear comfortable clothing to bed, breathable fabrics like cotton.
-Keep the room dark or dimly lit.
- Massaging , foot-soles OR head & very gentle message of eyes-eyelids, with almond oil or ghee, helps.
Washing feet with normal/ warm water, as per the season, helps.
