Sleep is necessary for good health because it relieves stress and allows you to unwind.
Although 25% of people have trouble sleeping at night, 75% only try it once in a while. To improve your sleep quality, there are a few things you should avoid doing before going to bed. Read on to discover how to get a good night's sleep.
Things You Shouldn't Do Before You Go to Sleep:
1. Tobacco consumption:
Nicotine, like caffeine, can be found in cigarettes and has a physiological effect. This raises blood pressure and heart rate while stimulating mental activity. To get a good night's sleep, quit smoking two hours before bedtime if you can't stop sooner. It is preferable if you do not smoke at all.
2. Exercise routine:
Exercise is good for our health and can help us fall asleep faster and relax.
Because of this, the exercise should be done 5 to 4 hours before bedtime.
You shouldn't expect to finish your workout and go to bed right away. You are unable to sleep because your body is alert and agile.
3. Drinkable water:
Water treatment is good for your health, but only a small amount of water should be consumed before bed.
This is due to the fact that if you drink a lot of water, you will wake up with bags under your eyes.
This does not, however, mean that you should not drink water at night. As long as you are not uncomfortable, a glass of water will suffice.
4. Have a nap:
Napping at the right time of day is beneficial to your health and sleep. If you nap in the afternoon, falling asleep at night will be difficult. If you have insomnia, doctors advise against taking naps
5. Taking a shower in a hot tub:
Many people believe that taking a hot shower will help them sleep better, but this is not true. The temperature difference, according to research, is what helps us fall asleep faster. The bigger the gap, the more we want to sleep. This is why, if you're feeling particularly energised, you should shower. Hot water also has an effect on our skin, stimulating blood flow in multiple layers, disrupting sleep.
