As parents life can be challenging and emotional at the best of times. Sometimes, you feel like you have the whole world on your shoulders. One way especially in the earlier days as a parent for me to manage as a parent was making sure that I got a good nights sleep.
Firstly, how I helped myself get a good night sleep was by making sure that I turned off all of my electronical devices in order to switch off your brain I believe is really vital.
Making sure the environment that you sleep is comfortable, such as getting the right temperature, comfortable mattress and reducing the amount of distractions in the bedroom.
It is important to do something to wind down to help you relax for bed. I am know for having an over active brain so I always make sure that I have a note pad by my bed to write down all of my thoughts, making it easier for me to relax. Another tip would be to read a book as it helps get you into sleepy mood.
Some people enjoy a bath to help relax their muscles so they can be comfortable before bed.
I am also a huge fan of having music on when I go to sleep. Something that is calming and that will not make you think too much is always a winner for me.
Did you know a study done by Consumer Reports says that 68% of Americans struggle with sleep at least once a week. That’s approximately 164 million people. For Better Sleep Month Leesa, a online mattress company, want to help you get a better night sleep.
Below is an info-graph highlighting what happens when you are sleep and how your body works at different intervals depending on the time.
As you can see visually through the graph sleep has a vital role to play in looking after your body. Obviously becoming comfortable and sleeping for longer periods has a much more positive result with getting better and deeper sleep (delta waves). This is important because it allows the body to repair muscles, tissues, stimulates growth and boost the immune system. Therefore allowing you to be more productive the following day which intern helps with productivity and happiness within your life.
