Do you use your phone before bed? If so, it’s no wonder you’re struggling to sleep.
Electronic screens on gadgets like mobile phones, TVs & tablet computers all emit something called ‘blue light’. If you’ve not heard of blue light before, all you need to know is that it tricks your brain into thinking it is still daytime. And because of this, it keeps you awake.
So, there’s a pretty simple solution to this common problem. Just put away your electronics before you get ready for bed.
Studies show that blue light can set back the sleep process by 30-60 minutes. So if you put away your phone – and stay away from other electronics – around an hour before you want to go to bed, you should find it much easier to sleep.
Because of the way our bodies work, we sleep best in the dark. Why? Because the day and night cycles effect our bodies.
However, due to light pollution your bedroom won’t always be dark at night.
Street lamps and lights from passing cars leak into your bedroom. As a result, these lights can keep you awake and more susceptible to waking up at night.
Again, there’s a simple solution to solve this issue. To stop light pollution leaking into your bedroom and keeping you awake, simply install a new blackout blind in your bedroom will do the trick.
Blackout blinds will block out that pesky light pollution and ensure that your bedroom is dark enough for you to sleep properly.
Going to bed stressed is another thing that keeps lots of people awake at night.
If you’re stressed in bed you’ll find it hard to sleep – as you’re kept with only your thoughts until you fall asleep.
It’s safe to say if you get into bed stressed, you’ll get out of bed the next morning tired and stressed.
There are many things you can do to alleviate stress before bedtime which will lead to you falling asleep easier.
By simply having a relaxing bath, meditating for 10 minutes, doing breathing exercises, or doing something you enjoy before bed will de-stress you and make it easier for you to drift asleep. If you’re new to meditating, here a beginner’s guide to meditation.
Lazy days are great, but they have a downside to them.
When it’s time for bed, you’ll notice that you have too much leftover energy to fall asleep.
Your mind may be tired, but your body is still ready for action. This can be frustrating – because this energy winds up keeping you wide awake.
Fortunately, there’s an easy fix for this problem. All you need to do is have some sort of exercise before bedtime.
Just having a 10 minute jog, or walk around the block an hour or two before bed can burn off that excess energy and have you ready for bed. Just make sure not to exercise too close to your bedtime though. Your body needs to cool down after exercise before it’s ready for bed.
You’ll learn a wide range of psychological and science-based relaxation and meditation techniques. You will quickly learn the art of staying calm – even in the midst of tough times.
