Additional Ways on How To Sleep Better
Besides these four techniques, please note that online sources abound with other interesting ideas, like humming like a bee, daydreaming, and, of course, patterned breathing.
Other sources also suggest supplements that contain melatonin, valerian root, passionflower, and hops, as they promote relaxation and sleepiness. However, please be careful with supplements. Melatonin, for instance, may come with side effects, such as daytime sleepiness, nausea, and dizziness.
Still, let’s not forget the basics:
- Make sure your bedroom is conducive to sleep. As much as possible, the room should be quiet, dark, and comfortable in terms of temperature.
- Refrain from using gadgets an hour or two before bedtime.
- Avoid heavy meals, alcohol, and caffeine at night.
- Be consistent: Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day.
If you continue to experience sleep troubles, please get in touch with your healthcare provider.
