Good day starts with a good night's sleep!
With insomnia, nothing's real. Everything is far away. Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy”
Being insomniac will not lead to another 1999's Fight Club, but it can cause serious health complications like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder which are found to be routinely linked to poor sleep, and sleep deprivation in teens if present irregular sleeping pattern continues!
It is found that a minimum of 7-8 hours of deep sleep a day can improve concentration, decision making abilities, bowel movement, eating habits and lower the risk of mental health issues.
Melatonin, a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, is responsible for sleep cycle. With the present generation's overuse of cell phones and other blue light emitting gadgets before sleeping, it has become difficult to sleep.
The blue light restrains the production of the required hormone which messes up your circadian rhythm.
Here are a few steps you can follow before bed:
1. Try eating light
2. Stay away from gadgets for an hour or half an hour
3. Listen to soft music or your favorite song's piano version
4. Stick to a sleep schedule where you get a good sleep of 7-8 hours
5. Meditate to ease the stress, jot it down, talk it out, just let it out!
It's not cool to call yourself a night owl because your body will suffer in later years. Be wise! Sleep nice!
