Simple Tips for Sound Sleep at Night | Author: Janga Prasad

It is essential that each and every person has a good night sleep for atleast seven to nine hours so that he or she will wake up the next morning with a lot of fresh energy that will in turn determine the mood for the whole of the succeeding day. In this fast-paced world where people run ahead of time to achieve their preset goals and appear to be under severe stress, it has become more and more difficult to have a sound sleep in the nights.

I would like to share with you some of the simple tips that will help in getting a good night sleep. Most of these tips or suggestions were tested and found to have helped the people in achieving the desired rest and sleep.

  • Don't take a long nap during the day; this may make it more difficult to fall asleep at night

  • Eat at regular intervals during the daytime; avoid taking heavy meals in the night

  • Don't smoke; if you can't quit smoking, atleast try not to smoke atleast for an hour or two before going to the bed

  • Take a warm bath before going to bed; or else listen to some soothing music or read some books of general interest; you can also try to meditate for a few minutes - either of these things will lead to sleep

  • If you still cannot find sleep, don't simply lie on the bed for more than 15 minutes. Get up from the bed, go to the living room and spend some time either watching TV or reading a book until you feel sleepy

  • Use the bedroom only for sleeping, not for working or watching TV

  • Keep your bedroom dark and quiet

  • Avoid excessive mental stimulation before bedtime

  • If you are filled with worries, you may find it difficult to sleep. Ensure that these worries are set aside. What you can do is after having dinner, spend around 30 minutes to dwell your problems. Instead of just thinking over it, try to write down the problems in a sheet of paper and the possible plethora of solutions or ideas to tackle those problems. Set aside the paper and forget about that for the rest of the night

    Try to practise the above mentioned simple tips to have a sound sleep and a qualitative sleep which will help you wake up with fresh energy the next day morning.
