When we were children, we were always taught, “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise!”. But as we grow older, we get buried under a lot of responsibilities related to family and career
Except for this, we are living in the digital age. Scrolling through social media feeds, chatting, and binge-watching all night has become a part of the night schedule for most of us.
All these habits result in an adverse effect on our health. From a cranky mood all day to laziness and weight gain, a bad sleep cycle has many side effects. Here's what you can do correct.
Exercising regularly also helps you in getting quality sleep at night. It is not essential to work out a lot, just a light exercise a few hours before bed will also do the work. If you are a gym person, go to the gym either in the morning or at least 3-4 hours before your bedtime.
Caffeine drinks like coffee and tea are used by many of us to stay energetic and away from sleepiness. But, too much caffeine is not good for your health as well as sleep. Try to avoid caffeinated drinks near your bedtime.
If you take your dinner late at night, you may face difficulty in sleeping. This is because your body will still be working to digest dinner. So, try to eat early and if possible, go for a light walk after your meal.
Increased exposure to screen lights like your mobile phone, television, and laptop also leads to bad sleep quality. Hence, stay away from your phones and laptops before going to bed. If not for long, keep your digital equipment at rest at least half an hour before going to sleep.
