Six Great Habits Before Going to Bed

A wholesome sound sleep of 8 hours is a must. Follow these six essential habits to make the best of those sleeping hours.

1. Wear comfy clothes
This is the most important aspect of a having a good sleep. If you're not comfortable, there's no point of going to bed. Even if you're sleepy as hell, you must change your clothes to wear a comfortable night suit. Wearing a pair of pyjamas or maybe shorts with vest would do a great job. You can wear any loose clothes. Women should avoid wearing bra while sleeping as it hampers the blood circulation and a wholesome sleep.

2. Brush your teeth well
It is very important to brush your teeth before going to bed as your mouth is closed for most of the time while you're sleeping due to which the sugar left inside your mouth can break into bacteria and imbalance the pH of your mouth which is why tooth decay and other oral problems could commence. So, brushing your teeth and making sure that your mouth is properly clean would protect your teeth against such bacteria. Moreover, having a cleaner mouth and fresh breath creates a positive attitude itself.

3. Avoid taking stress before going to bed
If you are under any stress, it's natural that you would not be able to sleep. Even if you do, your brain would constantly bring strange thoughts inside your mind which can also induce sleep paralysis which means your body is relaxed but you brain is still awake. This would make you very anxious, though it is just for few seconds but this would eventually spoil your sleep hours. Try simple exercises to calm your mind like thinking of something positive, breathing in and out, counting forward and then backwards or listening to soft music, etc are some of the activities that you can do to release stress.

4. Wash your face with cold water
This is a very healthy practice to induce a satisfying stress-free sleep. Moreover, since your face is exposed to the polluted environment throughout the day, washing your face at night removes all the dullness and dirt from your face after a long working day.

5. Apply a moisturizer and hand cream
This is the best time to apply a moisturiser to your face and a handcream to your hands as it would thoroughly hydrate your skin and as you're mentally and physically relaxed while sleeping, this would help in good absorption of the cream into your skin. And you would notice a healthy glow on your skin on waking up.

6. Drink limited but sufficient water
Drink half a glass of water before going to bed which would be enough. If you drool at night like me, then you can drink more than that. But avoid drinking lots of water as you might have to wake up in the middle of your sleep for peeing. So, you should drink limited water but that should be sufficient enough to keep your mouth hydrated.

These habits would surely improve your sleep cycle and you would start your day with a fresh and positive attitude if you start following some of these habits on daily basis. I hope this helps you. Cheers! :)

  1. I normally wear short and tee before going to be, practice meditation to avoid stress during the night and do consume water before sleeping.

  2. Good sleeping habits are essential for good night's sleep. i love to read before going to bed so that I am relaxed before sleeping. i try as much as possible to stay away from my mobile, though it is a bit difficult in present days and time.

    1. That's true! But one should avoid using phone few hours before sleeping so that they can be relaxed mentally. That's a great point! 😊

  3. Do you have any advice for people coming in night shift ...!! :)

    1. Lol.. Then you may follow the same routine when you come back in morning 😊

  4. A proper night's sleep is absolutely essential for our long-term health and mental well-being. But getting enough sleep - and sleep of the best quality - is a requirement we often fail to meet. Taking sleeping pills is both addictive and dangerous, while simple breathing or mental exercises just aren't effective for most of us. Sleep meditation, however, can guide us down to a deep sleep amazingly well because it works in harmony with our natural Sleep Cycle app.
