There are many ways to describe a good night’s sleep, but it can all be deduced to getting the proper number of hours that we want to recover all of the energy we lose during our awake phase.
Some can rate their sleeping experience as 10 out of 10, but are you one of those who wake up in the middle of the night for no specific reason? Are you included in the unlucky demographic who have broken hours of sleep and have this inexplicable difficulty in going back to sleep again? Below are some of the tips to consider ensuring that the next time you will hit the sack, no type of distraction will bug you again.
Restless sleepers actually have specific reasons why they end up with the condition. There are a lot of outside factors and figurative noises that break deep sleep which include noisy pets, uncomfortable bed settings and even children who are left unmanaged before sleeping.
There are a lot of nuisances to consider, but restless sleepers should be aware about what it is that keeps on waking them up in the middle of the night. Once identified, all the plans to prevent an untimely awake phase should be deduced from there.
Recent studies show that 56% of women and 49% of men are experiencing this widespread problem, which then results to a less focus the day after or heightened chances of suffering from a bad mood. Despite these alarming facts, almost half of those who suffer from this condition overlook the possibility of putting a stop to this sleeping issue.
If find yourself staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night or way ahead of your 7:00AM alarm, then you need to act upon it as soon as possible.
One effective way of getting back to dream land is to do something light such as reading or listening to music for about 10-20 minutes. This would actually counter the feeling of being sleepless and crowd your brain with thoughts until your body craves for sleep again.
One thing to also consider is to keep the general lighting of your room or the place where you sleep dim. Also you must, with all your might, avoid modern devices such as LCD TVs, mobile phones and tablet computers as this would stimulate your ‘sleeping cells’ into awakening out of schedule.
If you’re too tired to do something, you can just stay in bed motionless and try to relax your tense brain by doing some breathing exercises. Being specific would also help you and if you can, record your sleeping patterns via your makeshift sleep diary to avoid waking in the middle of the night prematurely.
