Mix These 2 Things Before Bed And Never Wake Up Tired Again
If you have trouble sleeping and often wake up tired you’ve probably had trouble falling or staying asleep or your sleep quality has been low for a while. We sleep for approximately 33% of our life and we need high quality sleep to wake up rejuvenated and deal with the tasks and stressors in life.
8 Hours a night is the recommended amount of time we sleep as adults. If we get less than 8 hours of sleep our body may not operate as effectively. There are two measures of sleep that you have to take into account, sleep time (hours) and sleep quality (how deep you sleep) and if you get more sleep (time) yet your sleep quality is still low then you will wake up feeling groggy. If you sleep a shorter period of time but have high quality, deep, rejuvenating sleep with proper hormone and sleep cycling you will wake up feeling rested. Ideally you’d like to get your body to sleep for an adequate amount of time, fall asleep quickly, sleep deeply and wake up feeling rested.
This isn’t always the case though. The quantity of sleep that you receive is up to you. You can go to bed earlier and get more sleep that way. Certain factors contribute to the lack of high quality sleep though and you have to make changes to improve the quality of your sleep.
3 Factors That Causes Low Quality Sleep:
Using Technology Before Sleep:
By being on your computer, tablet, phone or simply watching tv before sleep you are disrupting your bodies natural circadian rhythm which causes your serotonin and melatonin production to offset causing a decrease in sleep quality.
Eating Before Sleep:
Your body needs a good 3 hours (or more) to properly digest food. Going to bed on a stomach full of food (even just a little food) will cause your body to use resources to digest that food instead of using those same resources to give you high quality rejuvenating sleep. Eat early in the evening (4-5 p.m.) and avoid food for the rest of the night.
Late Night Stimuli:
There are quite a few forms of late night stimuli that can alter your circadian rhythm, engage your brain and thought processes, or engage your body and energy production late at night. You want to avoid these activities. You should do your best to avoid bright lights at night, use himalayan salt lamps and get to bed before 10 p.m. If you work late at night and that stimulates ideas and more brain activity then avoid working at night. Working out at night may also be harmful. You could induce your body to wake up and be active and cause your body stress before rest. Late night sex may also be an issue. If sex causes you to feel drained (or energized) then it can decrease your sleep quality either way. Late night caffeine, sugar, or anything stimulating externally or internally will decrease sleep quality. The later the night becomes the more you want to calm your mind and body and move into rest.
Once you remove factors that may reduce sleep quality you can use this 2-step recipe to your advantage to support your body and certain specific organs to rest, relax and rejuvenate during a deep sleep, high quality night’s rest.
