New healthy habits to better night’s sleep
Taking care of your health means not only enjoying a better night’s sleep, but also waking up the next day feeling energized! Here are 10 simple and healthy habits to help you improve your sleep:
1. Work out
Fitness doesn’t always have to involve gymnastics. It’s important to find something you enjoy so that it’s not a burden – walking, gardening, sports, swimming or yoga. Thirty minutes of moderate exercise a day is enough to increase your heart rate and help you stay in shape.
2. Get better posture
It is important to pay attention to your body throughout the day. A poor posture has negative effects on your health, including chronic muscle pain, headaches and even a moody mood. Try sitting a little straighter, standing a little higher and stretching when you feel tired.
3. Turn off
If you stare at your mobile phone at bedtime, it will take longer to reach a deep sleeping stage, and you will spend less time due to the blue light. Deep sleep is essential for your body to renew cells.
4. Stay hydrated
Dehydration is caused by fatigue, headaches, anxiety and difficulty concentrating. Try drinking about 2 liters of water a day to help you feel energized, improve your skin and even help you lose weight.
5. Get enough sleep
Sleeping can bring many benefits to improve your health. Try to sleep 8 hours a night to boost your energy, improve memory, sharpen your focus and reduce stress.
6. Healthy Diet
Slow down and take note when you’re full. Chances are you’ll end up eating less (and feeling much better)!
7. Go outside
Being outside can reduce stress, reduce the symptoms of depression and improve your mood. Because natural daylight helps synchronize our circadian rhythm, being outside is also a crucial part of getting a good night’s sleep.
Meditation can reduce anxiety, stress and even physical pain. You also don’t need to relax for hours, 20 minutes a day is enough to reduce stress and improve the quality of your sleep.
9. Limit naps during the day
Long naps during the day can disrupt night sleep. If you choose to take a nap, limit it to a maximum of 30 minutes and avoid taking it in the evening.
10. Dealing with anxiety
Try to resolve your anxiety or concern before going to bed. Write down your thoughts and put them aside for tomorrow. Stress management can help. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks.
