Quality sleep- why it is important and how to achieve it

Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial for each person to be healthy and productive. Good sleeping habits help you recharge fully, refresh your mind and body, balance hormones and may even assist in reaching weight goals.

Often distractions, worries, poor routine, and bad nutrition cause many of us to stay up at night, creating fatigue and stress the next day. Tips to achieve a good night’s sleep include going to bed at the same time every night, making sure your room is dark and quiet at bedtime, forgoing afternoon naps and caffeine, and creating sleep-time rituals, like cosy pyjamas, and reading before bed.

Commonly, foods high in specific nutrients can enhance our ability to go to sleep and improve the quality of sleep. These include after-dinner snacks such as kiwifruit, warm milk, avocado, pumpkin seeds, and herbal teas, which are all worth a try for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Studies also suggest that self-compassion, gratitude and forgiveness create mental clarity and help one go to bed peacefully. This help embrace positive thoughts and let go of negative ones before dozing off.

Another helpful tip to get a better night of sleep is to reduce blue light exposure in the evening. Blue light is emitted from electronic devices such as smartphones, computers, and televisions. By reducing blue light exposure, one can reduce hormones like melatonin, which in turn help you relax and get a deeper sleep.

Don’t neglect making quality sleep a top priority and incorporate some tips above to achieve optimal health and well-being.
