Making Sleep a Priority for Better Health this World Sleep Day

Sleep a Priority for Better Health

One straightforward formula for a healthier and happier life is this:

Good sleep = Good health

With “World Sleep Day 2024” approaching on 15th March, we at Aluminate Life want to emphasize on importance of sleep even more.

In today’s busy world, finding time to rest can be tough. Getting a good night’s sleep might feel like a far-off dream.

But sleep is super important for staying healthy, just like eating right and staying active. When you sleep well, your brain works better, you feel happier, and your body stays healthy.

Skipping out on sleep too often can cause big problems. It can make you more likely to get sick or have health issues like heart problems or memory troubles.

On World Sleep Day, it’s a good reminder that good sleep isn’t just about how long you’re in bed. It’s also about making sure your sleep is deep and refreshing and keeping a regular sleep routine, says Dr. Marishka Brown, a sleep expert at NIH.

But how do you make your sleep better? How can you ensure a peaceful and restful night? Let’s explore some sleep tips for a better night’s rest on this World Sleep Day.

10 Effective Tips for Quality Rest & Better Sleep 

Getting enough sleep is as important as exercising regularly and eating healthy food. Here is what you can try: 

Stick to a sleep schedule

Try to sleep for about 7-8 hours each night. Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. If you can’t sleep after 20 minutes, do something relaxing until you feel tired – try walking or gentle yoga before sleep 

Watch what you eat and drink

Avoid heavy meals and stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol close to bedtime. They can keep you awake.

Create a calming environment

Keep your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet. Limit exposure to bright lights and screens before bed and wear comfortable clothes to enhance relaxation. Use soothing scented candles or our Sleep Essential Oil Blend rollerball, featuring calming scents of rose, lavender, and vanilla, infused with nurturing rose quartz crystal.  

Wind down before bed

Establish a relaxing bedtime routine to signal to your body that it’s time to sleep. This could include reading, gentle stretching, or listening to calming music. Incorporate comfortable clothes and cozy blankets, along with relaxing candle scents, into your routine for added comfort. Additionally, you can also try practices like yoga nidra, and meditation for restful sleep.

Limit daytime naps

Keep naps to around an hour and avoid napping late in the day, especially if you have trouble sleeping at night.

Manage stress

Deal with worries before bed by writing them down and setting them aside for tomorrow. Practice stress-relief techniques like meditation or deep breathing to help you relax.

Limit exposure to screens

Avoid using electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, and computers before bed, as the blue light emitted can interfere with your ability to fall asleep.

Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillows

Ensure your sleeping environment is comfortable and supportive. A good quality mattress and pillows that suit your sleeping position can make a big difference in how well you sleep.

Seek professional help if needed

If you consistently struggle with sleep despite trying these tips, consider consulting a healthcare professional or sleep specialist for personalized advice and treatment options.
