After a tiring day, you are ready to hit the sack. However, all the troubled thoughts in your mind won't let you do so. No matter how much you try, a thought keeps popping up from somewhere. Sometimes, the anxiety to face a challenging day also leads to a restless night. Though these symptoms are considered normal, the benefits of a sound sleep can't be overestimated. It's very important for every human being to get at least 8 hours of 'soundless' sleep. If you sleep for 10 hours, and if you're restless and disturbed throughout the night, it's not going to help. To make sure you sleep like a baby, everyday, all you have to do is follow these tips.
▶ Things You Can Do
Meditation helps in getting rid of stress that you experience during the day. Learn some deep breathing exercises and practice them everyday. A very popular exercise: place one hand on your stomach and the other one on your chest. After this, inhale and exhale deeply by keeping your shoulders and chest very still.
Some methods which will help you in relaxing the body and mind include indulging in body massages, wearing comfortable clothes, drinking a glass of wine or herbal tea, etc. An important thing that you must remember is to switch off the television as well as the computer at least thirty minutes before bedtime.
