There is one luxury that is commonly available to all of us and free of charge- sleep. Nothing rejuvenates your body, mind and inner self like a good sound sleep. Nature’s salve to all hassles, has it ever failed to work its magic on you? No. But lately, the salve appears to have lost its Midas touch as it is becoming quite patchy, thanks to the contemporary lifestyle. The most common complaint to be heard today is lack of sleep; again, thanks to the hurry-burry modern life.
Not everyone gets the sleep they need....
Anxiety, depression, bad days at work/home, unwholesome diet or anything that makes a downbeat impact on your routine and biological clock can invite insomnia. Not only does sleeplessness make you drained and less efficient, but may also bring about more health risks like jeopardizing your metabolic system. Are you a victim of these? Most likely.
So what can you do? Some small changes here & there, a bit of diet-organizing & some smart timing of schedules. It is most fascinating to note that solutions to our worst problems lie in simplest of steps. You just need to take that stride. Timely meals & standard workouts along with your daily routine!
Following a regular sleep schedule is the first and foremost step. Try to wake up & go to bed at the same time in order to set your body clock. Also, let’s keep the bed only for sleeping & NOTHING else. Why let TV, internet, radio, books, iPod, phone & whatnot come between you & your beauty sleep? Try out massage or yoga that enhance the blood circulation and help to relax your body and mind. These are a few small steps that can go miles. If the problem runs deep, don’t take drastic measures like popping sleeping pills; instead see a Doctor.
A good sleep is like a hearty dip in the fountain of youth. Sleep your way to a happier, healthier and younger you.
