Constantly on the move
Once we step into the world of adults, this means that our lives that were careless and filed with joy up until that point, as well as the impression that we have all the time in the world are suddenly going to turn upside down. From that point on, we will feel like being constantly on the run, all day long doing various chores, going through countless number of stressful situations. And soon the only thing that we will truly look forward to is embracing our pillow and going to that cloud nine where all the worries of the day just melt away. But more often than not, falling asleep turns into a task that requires a lot of effort to be successfully accomplished. This is why to quite a large number of people this problem appears unsolvable, when the solution is actually just around the corner, in the shape of the perfect equilibrium between your mind, body and the bedroom atmosphere. If you, too, are experiencing difficulties falling asleep, then try out these simple steps that have already proven crucial to many in their pursuit of sleep:Step one: bedroom needs to be all prepped up – certain people have no difficulties falling asleep even if you put them on a rock, in the middle of a stampede. Unfortunately, those are but the very few. As for the rest of us, we are left with numerous techniques. Considered as one of the most important factors is the room temperature. It should be a pleasant mixture of both cool and warm in order for it to be sleep inspiring. The ultimate goal is the temperature of 24 degrees.Step two: prep your body – in order to fall asleep as fast as possible after you have dealt with the room temperature issue, one needs to relax his/her body completely, signaling the mind that you are ready to fall asleep. One of the biggest mistakes is to eat a lot prior to going to bed, since food digestion can take quite some time. In addition, stay away from coffee and substitute it for water, if possible. But, do not overdo it with water either, since you would not want to end up with a bladder outburst in the middle of the night.Step three: prep your mind – the best possible way to calm your mind and get it ready for sleep is by meditating. In case you are not that much in favor of meditation, you can always achieve the same goals by simply finding some music that you know will relax you and soothe your mind. Another quite effective way is to read yourself to sleep.
