5 Healthy Habits To Follow Before You Go To Sleep

A good 7-8 hours of sleep works like magic! You’re well-rested, and you feel chirpy and happy. Bring that magic into your sleep every night! Whether you’re not able to sleep well, or you want to sleep better than you do, follow a bedtime routine!

Your bedtime routine can detoxify your environment and ambiance before you sleep! It sets your body in motion for a good night’s sleep. Slip into some comfortable sleepwear and snuggle into bed.

Wanna know what a bed-time routine can be? Sleeping well is a good way to rest your mind and body. Sleepwear adds a snug and cozy touch to your bedtime routine. 

Here are 5 healthy habits you can follow before you go to sleep!

Switch off your devices

Using your phone, a tab, or watching a show on your laptop? These devices emit blue light which reduces melatonin levels in your body. Melatonin is necessary for you to sleep, and to wake up. If Melatonin levels in your body drop, you will find it more difficult to wake up.  More so, using a device before sleeping can keep your brain alert and functioning, which makes it harder for you to fall asleep!

Make it a habit to stop using devices before you sleep! 

Build a bedtime routine

Ever thought of a bedtime routine before? Well, it helps you sleep better! What can you do in your bedtime routine? Meditate for a few minutes before bed (it helps to calm your mind). If not, you can even perform some gentle stretches as well. The tension in your muscles will be reduced.

Take a warm shower (it relaxes your body, your mind and makes you feel lighter). Once you hit your bed after the shower, listen to some soft music and focus on your breathing. 

Watch what you eat and drink

Coffee or a slice of cake before you sleep? Then be prepared to stay awake at night! What food goes into your body can impact the quality of your sleep largely!

Have a light meal before you sleep. Going to bed hungry or feeling stuffed will leave you feeling uncomfortable, unable to sleep. Try to avoid consumption of alcohol and caffeine before you sleep. They reduce the quality of your sleep overall.

Feeling nostalgic? Check out the character store! You can sleep comfortably with nightwear from the character store!

Turn on white noise or pink noise

Are you a light sleeper? Even the softest of the noises will probably wake you up, right? Try white noise, to muffle background noise. It is soothing and distracts you from other sounds.

If you’re not a fan of white noise, try pink noise. Pink noise filters high frequencies of white noise. It creates warmer tones that mimic wave movements. You can even find pink noise on Spotify and YouTube. 

Try to avoid the following:

  • Don’t we all love naps, especially post-lunch? Well, you need to avoid them if you want to sleep well at night!
  • Avoid high-calorie meals at night. You might be famished, or you’re a major foodie! But for a good night’s sleep, it’s better to avoid them because it impacts the quality of your sleep.
  • Avoid all kinds of strenuous exercise which will activate your body and mind. It might stimulate functioning with the opposite effect and keep you awake.
  • Try to avoid heavy or intense conversations before you sleep. The more you talk, the more active and awake you are.
