Find the sleep you’ve been missing on World Sleep Day 2018!

March 19, 2018 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Attention sleepyheads! The World Sleep Society is issuing a global call to action about the importance of healthy sleep on Friday, March 16, 2018, the 11th annual World Sleep Day.

Commemorate World Sleep Day by learning how to get a good night’s rest.

Sleep is a crucial component of survival, much like breathing, eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. An uninterrupted night’s rest benefits our mental and physical health. Experts say it may lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of  diabetes, obesity and other chronic diseases.

Yet far too many of us wake up tired, relying on our morning expresso and mid-afternoon sugar fixes to power us through our days. It’s time to learn how to get really good at sleeping.

To enjoy good quality sleep, you need:

  • Duration: Sleep long enough every night to feel rested and alert the next day.

  • Continuity: Sleep uninterrupted without tossing and turning or changing bedrooms because your partner snores.

  • Depth: Sleep deeply to let your brain waves slow and your body repair itself

Here are some ideas to help you enjoy a more restorative rest:

  • Maintain a bedtime schedule. Aim for seven to eight hours, beginning the same time each night

  • Reserve your bed for sleep and intimacy. Keep the computer, snacks and games out of your bedroom.

  • Get help for snoring. Sawing logs … raising the roof … whatever you call it, snoring can keep bed partners awake. And those who snore are not getting much quality rest either. Many people find that a MUTE  nasal dilator helps to restore peace to the bedroom. Mute increases airflow to enhance breathing and minimise snoring.

  • Exercise early. Schedule workouts early in the day. Exercising at night can raise your heart rate and adrenaline level, making it harder to fall asleep.

  • Think twice before satisfying your late-night cravings. Steer clear from heavy, spicy or sugary foods for four hours before bedtime.

  • Set a last call for alcohol. While a glass of wine might make you feel more relaxed at first, it can keep you up later in the night.

  • Don’t spend hours tossing and turning. If you can’t sleep after 20 minutes of lying in bed, get up and try a relaxing activity like listening to soft music.

Help eradicate bleary eyes and daytime yawns! Improve your mood, family relationships and work habits with these easy tips to ensure a better rest.
