It’s morning again. Last night you thought it would be different but as you discover when you wake up things are pretty much the same.  You feel tired, you couldn’t  fall asleep for almost an hour after getting into bed, you woke up all night and now it’s time to be energetic and get some work done. But the only thing you want to do is to go back to sleep. Take these simple steps and you won’t have to worry about those sleepless nights again.  

Don't train at late hours

This advice is also backed by science. When you workout your dopamine levels rise. This is not a bad thing, we all like that “pumped” feeling. But this will also make you overly alert, so if you plan to go to sleep within1-2 hours after your pump, you stand little chance.

The real caffeine effect

Most of us don’t really know exactly how long caffeine lasts. A lot of us drink coffee even in the afternoon.  The reality is; caffeine’s effect can last up to 10 hours!

Mens sana in corpore sano

This old latin quote means “Healthy mind in a healthy body”. You won’t be able to get far in life if you don’t treat your mind as healthy as you treat your body. Practice meditation or relaxation exercises and do it frequently! Like your body you have to train your mind.

Avoid stressful conversations before bedtime

Make a habit of not bringing up too many emotional conversations before bedtime.

Avoid drinking alcohol before sleep

Even though drinking alcohol makes you feel relaxed and sleepy, getting a quality “deep sleep” will be very hard. Scientists say that alcohol prevents you from entering the deeper phases of  sleep and to metabolize a small bottle of beer for example will take approximately one hour.

Getting a good night’s sleep can be easier than you think, if you just keep in mind some of these helpful tips!!
