7 Ways to Sleep Better in the New Year
It is not just enough to sleep for 7-8 hours every night. It is also important to ensure that the quality of sleep is good. Having a sound sleep is what would truly refresh you when you wake up.
1. Get active
In order to sleep soundly, you must give your body enough exercise. Get off that couch and ditch the sedentary lifestyle. Go for a 30 minute walk or do some basic stretches or simply go about your daily chores with zest. The point is to have an active lifestyle so that your body feels the need to hit the couch and get some much needed rest.
One of the reasons why many people find it difficult to sleep properly at night is because they always have too much on their mind. It could be some office related problem, some random thought, or extreme stress. Meditating daily can help you calm your mind and be free from negative thoughts. It will give you some much needed clarity and the energy to meet your daily challenges.
3. Resolve your arguments before you go to sleep
Make it a point to always resolve your issues and settle all arguments before you hit the bed. Be it a fight with your parents or a heated discussion with your partner. If you do not resolve it before you go to sleep, you will never be able to relax. Your mind will be constantly distracted and you will simply feel all the more upset and anxious.
4. Have a positive attitude towards life
If you are too cynical about all that is happening around you, then you will not be able to have a sound sleep. You will feel perpetually tired, depressed, and irritated. On the other hand, if you appreciate all the good things that are around you, you will spend the day with more energy and enthusiasm. This will also help you to go to sleep with a smile on your face and happy thoughts in your head.
