Are you ever waking up groggy? Do you consistently find it hard to sleep and stay sleeping through the night? Many sleep disorders can mess with us in the night, but there are a few common reasons why so many of us do not sleep as well as we should. We are going to look at those causes and learn what you can do about them now.
Your body isn’t finding its rhythm
Our body has its own clock, as you have probably heard before. However, you might not know that you could be sabotaging it and it, in return, can be sabotaging your sleep. For instance, if you wake up and rush out of the home straight away, your body is not getting the relaxed morning it expects to start the day. Waking up early and having a proper morning routine (including breakfast) makes you feel rested for the day, which makes it a lot easier to sleep when said day is over. Similarly, many of us have a habit of having a very different sleeping schedule for the weekend. The problem is that our body does not have a different schedule. Sleeping in on the weekend might be tempting but, again, it messes with the body clock.
You can’t get comfortable
Physical discomfort in bed is just as much a thief of sleep as a confused body clock is. If you work or exercise during the day, the stress can build up in the body, making you tense and making it a lot harder to relax in bed. If you have trouble finding a comfortable posture, you might want to look here for mattresses that work with you to find that comfort. A change in bedding can make a huge difference – especially regarding temperature. Get yourself different sheets of varying thickness you can change during the night if you find yourself too warm or too cold to sleep.
You need to relax
Mental stress can be just as much a factor in causing physical discomfort at night. Never mind the thoughts that tend to run through your head at night. If the bedroom is not proving the best place for you to destress, then consider using the garden to relax at night instead. Helping your body de-stress with steps like aromatherapy or audio therapy can be a big help in shrugging off the stress of the day. By the time you get to the bedroom, you might be more than ready to just sink into bed.
You’re not eating right
What we eat plays a role in every physical part of life so it should be no surprise that it has a role to play in how well we sleep as well. You need vitamins, amino acids, and minerals to fuel the bodily chemistry that lets your brain do its thing and shut off for the night. A diet without variety and nutrition is going to stop that from happening.
Stress, mental and physical. Poor eating habits. A lack of a firm schedule. These can all wreak havoc on your once peaceful nights. Take control of your sleeping pattern once more with the tips above.
