Thanks to it, we are able to regenerate the strength that will allow us to cope with everyday duties. We all know how important it is for an adult to sleep at least 8 hours a day, we also know that it is difficult to fulfill this obligation. Nowadays, we forget and neglect this important element of the day. We live in a constant hurry, the excess of duties at work or home means that we do not pay attention to sleep. Despite the constant efforts, it is worth stopping for a moment and getting up refreshed in the morning.
In order to get enough sleep, first of all, you should sleep at night. Taking naps during the day will not regenerate the body sufficiently, because only around 9 p.m. our body begins to release melatonin, which is a hormone that regulates sleep. Additionally, we get up at the same time every day. A disrupted waking up system has a negative effect on the body, it is known that we can sleep longer on Sundays than during the week when we go to work.
We eat the last meal up to two hours before bedtime. It must be light and it is worth observing this time, because the late dinner causes our body to digest it at night and it works hard during this time, which makes us wake up in the morning without sleep.
Let's take care of the bedroom
The room in which we sleep is also very important. The bedroom is only for sleeping, if we have such an option, we do not watch TV and we do not work. Make sure it is comfortable, it is important that it is aired, the temperature is not too high and that there are no unnecessary smells in the bedroom, e.g. meals prepared in the kitchen. In addition, we cover the blinds or curtains to minimize unnecessary sounds and light from the outside. If we are traveling or for some reason it is not possible to cover the windows, it is worth getting a blindfold. It will help to calm down and additionally has a beneficial effect on our eyes, allowing them to rest.
The choice of mattress and bedding also has a great influence on our sleep. Let us make sure that they provide us with the greatest possible comfort. If we already have the basic elements, let's not forget about pajamas or a nightgown. Let us choose those that do not restrict our movements, provide us with freedom and comfort. We adjust them to the season and room temperature. The basis of a good night's sleep is our comfort. Before falling asleep, we usually try to calm down and relax.
