There really is no point of losing sleep over sleep. Because of the fast-paced world we are living in, sometimes sleeping is a luxury that many cannot afford. So when it is time to actually get some sleep, we find ourselves being unable to doze off because there are just too much in our mind and the consequences can be damaging. So what is keeping you up? It is hard to point to a correct answer for this one but we can help you fall asleep better. Here’s how.
Pressing issues – Take care of them before going to bed. Before hitting the covers, make sure that you have completed the important work like replying an email or checking some documents. A small issue can actually keep you awake all night. Not everything can be solved though and in such a situation, write them down in a piece of paper which means you know you have unfinished business for the morning.
Alarm Clocks – If you are sleeping for the weekend, then hide the alarm clock. Besides having the clock to remind you of the time, the sound of the clock could drive anyone crazy.
Mental state – This is perhaps the hardest part because you need to keep your mind off work. Tell yourself that there is always tomorrow to take care of business. If you can do that, half the battle is won.
Caffeine – As any expert will tell you, avoid coffee or other caffeine sources at night. In fact, avoid it from 4pm onwards if possible because some bodies take longer to respond to caffeine.
Imaging – A lot of people will teach you this but you need to pick an image you like and soothing enough and focus on it. Counting sheep do not work much but focusing on a relaxing image could. Just ensure that your ex-girlfriend is not in the picture and you will soon be dozing off in no time.
