Sleep is essential to stay in shape and maintain your health for as long as possible. The Leenkus editorial staff gives you 4 good habits to adopt to find baby nights..
1) Sleep: Avoid blue light before going to bed
Screens are bad. And even more so when you watch them just before bedtime. And all the more so when you are prone to insomnia and if you have sleep problems. Indeed, we can mention our tablets, our computers and our mobile phones. But they are not the only ones.
Moreover, even e-readers should be avoided just before sleeping. Yet they are so practical, light and economical. Finally, television is not ideal either. In addition to disturbing sleep, these accessories that send out this blue light can worsen eyesight.
Dear readers, to limit the damage, you can wear glasses with an orange tint, which now limits blue light. So, if you have a digital alarm clock, it’s best to cover it too. Finally, close the shutters or draw the curtains to sleep in complete darkness.
2) Pay attention to the position of your neck which is important
Warning ! Your sleep can be disturbed if you have neck pain. Indeed, it is a common reason for people who suffer from insomnia problem.
So be careful to protect your neck in a so-called “neutral” posture. To achieve this, you must therefore lie on your back, and then align your nose with the center of your silhouette.
Also, the height of the pillow is important. Memory foam cushions are perfect to fit your neck exactly as well as your head. In fact, this position will allow you to avoid putting too much pressure on your nerves.
3) Sleep: The choice of mattress is essential against insomnia
The material and quality of the mattress are also essential for a good, restorative night. Often, dust and dust mites are found on bedding. Which can now cause allergies.
Likewise, it can unfortunately lead to sniffling, sneezing or coughing. So to avoid these problems, we recommend that you opt for hypoallergenic mattresses. Also remember to change and wash the sheets once a week. Warning !
Pet hair can also be a source of allergies. Avoid sleeping with your cats and/or dogs and letting them enter your room and become encrusted on your bed.
4) Sport plays on the quality of sleep
It is now clear. Practicing a sport or physical activity in general and on a regular basis is very beneficial for your health. Plus, you’ll sleep better. It is recommended to move a little each day.
You will find that you will fall asleep faster. Everything is good to take, whether it’s walking, swimming, cycling, running, stairs…
On the other hand, for a good sleep, it is advisable not to exercise late at night. You actually need to tranquilize yourself between 3 and 4 hours before sleeping. But you can possibly do yoga postures to relax by releasing your anxieties.
