January 16, 2014
A brand new year is upon us! Time flies so quickly that we barely feel the change of seasons and the advance of weeks. The beginning of a whole new year signals another set of resolutions or their renewal due to being buried in forget since the past year. Now there are a lot of resolutions to choose from, and all of them are often centered in improving the self in one way or another.
But don’t forget that, just as losing weight and sticking to a healthier diet is necessary for improving your overall physical being, having quality sleep that satisfies you is just as vital. These are 4 simple resolutions that will definitely improve the way you sleep.
Remember that the listed tips below are much more effective if you have a superior foam to back you up.
- Be regular in setting and following sleeping schedules
Sleeping, and the quality therein, is not isolated only to the time you spend in bed in between dozing off and waking up. It’s often an overlooked fact that the quality of your sleep will be determined by how you spend your day. That includes when your bedtime is and what time you wake up.
Your body naturally adjusts to a regular sleeping pattern. The way to avoid waking up tired in the morning is to train yourself to follow a sleeping schedule. Even on weekends, maintaining practical steps to improve your sleeping habit will reward your daily mornings in the long run.
- Avoid activities that will hinder your ability to doze off
One thing that will definitely determine the quality of your sleep is how it starts. It’s definitely most noticeable. I mean, honestly, the way you rate the quality of a well-spent night of slumber is by evaluating it before and after. That’s why it’s important to avoid stressful activities that will wear you off too much that it actually prevents sleep. These include excessive partying, video-gaming, watching television and even unnecessary napping.
- Improve your eating habits
It might be surprising at first, but the way you sleep is influenced by what you eat. Actually, there are a lot of foods that you didn’t know prevent sleep. As a resolution, improving your diet by switching to healthy, serotonin-rich foods will significantly speed up your transition to sleep. That in turn will improve your quality of sleep by maximizing the hours of sleep that you will experience. After all, no one likes wasting hours on the bed just trying to get to sleep, right?
- Think positively
Being healthy on the inside will improve you externally in a mental and emotional way just as it will improve you physically. Stress, anxiety, sorrow, bitterness, and other general sentiments and mindsets are only there to bring you down and discourage you. That’s why, instead of just avoiding them, it’s good to start thinking positively.
It isn’t just about feeling better at first. Eventually, as you stick to thinking positively, you’ll start improving your personality and the way you sleep as well. After all, negative mentalities only take away the peace from slumber, right?
It’s a new year, and a lot of things should change for the better to ride along the bandwagon of the natural changing process of nature. So why shouldn’t sleep be part of it? Go ahead and don’t be afraid of taking the first step to the improvement of your life!
