The numbers of Sleep Cycle related health issues and sleep disorders numbers are rising day by day. There are many reasons behind these problems some are generated through social pressures, anxiety and the most popular term Drugs. But the alarming level of this problem is somewhat “forgotten” or cared less by most of us but its visibility and the way it has penetrated the society in general cannot be ignored for long. As a direct result of not getting enough sleep can have many side effects such as it can effect your thinking, the way you react and relate to others (thus creating fluctuations in relationships and some related issues, etc) are just a few to name.
Everyone has their reasons when it comes to habits (Drugs, sex, TV, etc addictions) but as pointed out earlier that problem however is that most don’t have a clue what your lack of good night sleep can have on your health (both physical and emotionally). It’s no secret that having a healthy body can help you to maintain a positive mental states which has been proved by various scientists that even if you had to face stressful or had to make decisions under pressure the people who are getting a quality night sleep will almost always outperform others who fail to achieve it.
There are few things that if you can remember will help you to achieve and maintain a healthy sleep cycle. First try to eliminate unnecessary nap-times. Although they certainly can be very helpful in some situations, so if unavoidable try not to give it more than a half and hour. And also make sure to cut off some of the noises as best as you can (especially if you live near cities, etc). For this you can use ear-buds type utilities which are not very expensive either.
Make sure to let some air flow through your room. Or if you use an Air Cooler then make sure to set the temperatures at around 18° C. But depending on the individual these settings may vary and the best thing to do is to make some customizations of your own and find it for yourself.
Make sure to keep both bed and the other related items clean (bed-sheets for instance). And also find a comfortable mattress which is another important factor again somewhat ignored by most of us.
If you know some muscle relaxation exercises such as Yoga for example do them before going to bed. Or read a book, listen to some comforting musics (there are some especially made audio track for both body and mind relaxation). And if you cannot fully let go of your drug usage, then at least try not to use them before going to bed.
Make sure to set your alarm to the proper time. This again very important as if you were woke up (by any distraction) when having a deep state of sleep then it’ll be really hard to get back to it again. To overcome this there are even both software and hardware applications called sleep cycle alarm clock are also available. They have the ability to observe your Brain cycles and will wake you at the most appropriate time. So try at least one or few of these methods and find the that suits you the best.
