A little advice that might help us all sleep better
Last Friday (March 19) was World Sleep Day - Shoutout to @Isurika Sevwandi for bringing this to our attention! 😊
In honor of this annual event, here's a little something that I thought would be useful for us all - Tips to sleep well. Now, as someone who used to roll her eyes at advice like this and consider it cliché, I fully understand that not all of these tips would seem feasible and you might not relate to all of them. Some of them might even seem unthinkable. Eg. No caffeine after 2 pm. Unlikely, I know!
But after deeper reflection and even experimenting with some of these, I've found them to be very useful in getting a full and good night's sleep. The ones that have worked wonders for me in particular -
- Don't watch the clock: I'd constantly do this earlier, and then crib all day about getting only x hours of sleep. I was very specific, down to the last minute. Now that I've stopped doing this, I've seen a change in how rested and refreshed I feel every morning, regardless of when I exactly fell asleep.
- Put your phone on silent and out of reach: This really helps because I'm no longer tempted to enter an endless loop of scrolling on social media if I'm not getting sleep.
I'd encourage you to try at least one of these and see if it works. Also, if you have other advice on things that help you sleep better, do share them in the comments! 🙂
P.S. Tips aside, let's just try to cut ourselves some slack and allow ourselves that extra hour of sleep we know we need not just on World Sleep Day, but every day 😴
