Sleep well

Today I want to talk to you about sleep. Having a good night sleep and feeling rested in the morning has enormous effect on your mood so it is important to make sure you sleep well. ⚠️ Here’s 12 facts about SLEEPING.💤
🔸️
1.It is very important what you do 2-3h before sleeping. When you fall asleep while overthinking, the mind remains active as if you were awake which is why you tend to wake up tired. Try to relax before sleep time. Also, don’t look at blue light (so no phones, no tv) at least 30min before bed time 🚫📱
🔸️
2.Bedroom should be only used for sleeping (and sex). You shouldn’t work in bed, watch tv or even read books. Make sure that your brain connects bed only with rest. This way your mind will reprogram into „a sleeping mode” when you go to bed and you’ll fall asleep easier. Bed is not a place for work! 🛌
🔸️
3.Medically speaking, it would be best if your bedroom had only bed in it and nothing more. If you can do it. Especially get rid of radios, TV and computers 🚫🖥
🔸️
4.When you wake up in the middle of the night don’t check what time it is 🕜
🔸️
5.Find your rhythm and try to go to sleep at the same time everyday and get up at the same time 🌠
🔸️
6.Make sure it is as dark in your bedroom as it can get. The darker the better. It helps your body produce melatonin (an important hormone) 🌃
🔸️
7.Make sure it is quiet. No clock that tick tocks, no humming sound, nothing. It should be total silence there 🔇
🔸️
8.The older you get the less sleep you need. When 20-30 years old you need 7.5-8h of sleep everyday; 30-40 around 7h. When you’re over 40 only 6h of sleep will be enough and over 50 even 5h will do. But! Sleeping for less than five hours any night decreases the productivity of your immune system, metabolism and the body’s response to stress 🤯
🔸️
9.Good sleep makes you more creative and makes your memory stronger 🧠
🔸
10.Lack of a good night sleep makes it difficult to absorb new things 🤷🏼‍♀️
🔸
11.Getting more sleep will decrease your chances of experiencing and being more affected by negative emotions☺
🔸️
12.The happier you are, the less sleep you require to function in everyday life. Sadness increases the urge to sleep more 🤗
