10 Simple Things to Do to Enjoy a Serene Sleep!
Are you suffering from insomnia? It's time to put an end to sleeplessness and finally enjoy a calm sleep!
The ways to get a good night's sleep are the following :
1. Turn off all the devices around you and turn off wi-fi.
Studies have shown that the brightness of the screen confuses the brain and makes it believe it is morning and makes you stay awake for hours. So avoid being on your phone before sleep.
2. Do not leave open lights or lamps.
The darker the room, the easier it will be for your brain to concentrate and fall asleep. If you can't sleep in the darkness just use less lights.
3. Read a book.
Books calm you down, soothe you, travel you and give you a more peaceful sleep. They also help you have more beautiful dreams, because they awaken your imagination.
4. Relaxing music.
Relaxing music calms our mind and helps us a lot at sleeping. It doesn't have to be music, it can be just sounds like rain, sea or fireplace for example.
5. Lavender aromatic candles.
Lavender has its healing properties in sleep and anxiety. Light up a lavender scented candle before bedtime and just before you lie-down, turn it off and you'll enjoy your sleep.
6. A relaxing bath with essential oils and relaxing music.
Fill your bath with warm water and add essential oils with relaxing music and this will relieve stress and give you the relaxation you need to sleep.
7. Clean sheets and clothes.
The clean sheets and pyjamas give you the feeling of serene and they make you feel more comfy.
8. Light Dinner.
Eat a light meal for dinner and prefer to have it 1-2 hours before bedtime. The heavy stomach makes it difficult for you to sleep.
9. Head massage.
Massaging and rubbing your head relaxes the muscles and helps you to calm down. Make circular movements on your head and rub your temples and nerves on your neck and on your ears.
10. Empty your mind.
Clear your mind from negative thoughts. It's not a simple thing, but something that will help you is a book, a movie, or a series, it will replace your thoughts with what you read or watched.
Try these and finally enjoy the sleep you deserve. Sweet dreams!
