Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for any healthy human-being. I personally have valued my sleep extreamly high. During my time at university I always thought being well rested was more important than spending an all-nighter cramming my brain with knowledge I’d forget the second my head hit the pillow. I would usually try to pass out at seven or eight at night. I’d set my alarm for 3am and study for hours before my big tests that day. I guess it worked because I ended up passing all of my classes.
Not being groggy, grumpy and tired are only some of the small problems with sleep issues. Not sleeping well can contribute to the path to diabetes, stress, and heart disease. One’s solution to help curb these sleep dilemmas can be found below. Some of the advice listed includes removing technology, sweets, and alcohol from the bedroom. I am very guilty of staring at screens until late into the night. I know it ruins my ability to fall asleep because I can compare it to when I read a paper book. When I’m deep in George R.R.’s fantasy world I pass out in about 10 minutes. Skimming through reddit or facebook can keep me up for hours.
Pay attention to your sleeping habits this week and try to understand what’s keeping you up.
