Some think getting a good night sleep is optional. This belief is observed more in people who live in urban areas with a vibrant night life. However, this is so far from the truth.
Have you ever noticed that there are times you wake up from sleep and you feel worst than when you climbed into bed? The very nature of sleeping soundly, should result in a refreshing feeling when you wake up. But sometimes, this is not be the case.
The sleep pattern in humans work is generally modulated by the brain and the environment. With the environment, the body follows a circadian pattern, that prompts us to either fall asleep or to stay alert. This circadian pattern is dependent on a lot of factors, like age, sex etc.
That is why to a large extent, no body is ever thought how to fall ‘in’ and ‘out’ of sleep.
7 to 8 hours a night is the goal, most experts say. It varies depending on age. Infants, toddlers, and teens need more sleep.
Getting your sleep pattern right would save you from some clinical conditions like Diabetes Mellitus, Headaches etc. It is now a know fact that those who fail to get adequate sleep have a greater tendency to build up abdominal fat: a prerequisite for a gamut of other cardiac, respiratory or even metabolic disorders.
Here are a few things you must keep to, if you truly desire to have good sleep that results in a refreshing awakening.
- Stick to a relaxing bedtime routine.
- Avoid naps that can throw off your rhythm.
- Exercise regularly.
- Keep your room at normal room temperature of 25 degree centigrades
- Sleep on a good mattress and pillows.
- Avoid eating late night or heavy meals just before going to bed.
- I personally recommend Our Water Therapy Model.
- See your doctor if you still have trouble getting good night sleep.
