Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.
“Poor sleep” can mean one or more of the following:
You sleep less than the recommended number of hours
You sleep much later than your circadian rhythm is naturally prepared for
Your sleep is disturbed and you frequently wake up in between your sleep cycles
Poor sleeping patterns are known to be very common in the generation where screentime is alarmingly high, lifestyles are poor, intake of alcohol, tobacco and caffeine is high, and the overall mental and emotional well-being of people is generally on a decline.
These poor sleeping patterns can not only make you feel irritated, lethargic, and disoriented, but they are also known to be linked to severe chronic health issues such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, PCOD, obesity, and even depression.
It is essential to repair your sleeping patterns and incorporate good sleeping habits. In order to function with alertness, concentration, and productivity, along with peace and calm of the mind, one must follow these suggested tips: Avoid screentime at least one hour before your bedtime.
Avoid making your bedroom a space for work, meals, or other activities. Your bedroom should be your space for relaxation and rejuvenation. A quiet, dark and cool bedroom aids in better sleep.
Avoid consuming alcohol and caffeine at least 5-6 hours before bedtime.
