It is obvious that everyone wants to feel refreshed and relaxed when opening their eyes in the morning, without experiencing any pains on the neck, back, waist, or head. This could happen if you have an effective and quality sleep. So, how can you get quality sleep?
Only few of us understand the importance of getting effective and quality sleep. Some people even prolong their sleep time in hopes the body will be fresh. But you must understand that effective and quality sleep is not related to the quantity or length of time to sleep, but your body should feel completely relaxed during sleep.
Here are easy tips to get quality sleep so that you can sleep more soundly.
1. Decrease your body temperature
During sleep, the sweat glands under your skin will work to eliminate the toxins that accidentally get into your body after a day of outdoor activities. It will cause you to sweat. Sweat is also an effort to lower your body temperature. You could just turn on the air conditioner so that your body can feel cool. But if it is just before going to your bedroom you’ve cooled your body by washing the hands and feet, the sweat that comes out would not be excessive.
2. Dim the bedroom lights
Strong lights on will not rest your eyes even when closed. By dimming the light in the bedroom, you will help your eyes to rest.
3. Use soothing fragrances
Lavender and vanilla fragrance is believed to stimulate our brain to feel calm. With the calmness, the heart rate will be more organized and you can feel relaxed.
4. Use the clean, neat, and appropriate bed
Do it by changing the bed sheet at least every two weeks. The sheet’s cleanliness and neatness certainly will not make you feel itchy and disrupt sleep. On the other hand, by using resilient mattress that can support the weight of your body, your body will feel comfortable while sleeping.
Just try these tips and have a good sleep!
