You may be looking forward to reading some health tips in this article to modify your diet and improve your quality of sleep. Relax, none of that will happen in the next twelve minutes of your life. By the time you have finished reading this post, you may want to make just one change in your daily routine to have a better life.
Sleep is something that comes naturally to us, but we like to deprive ourselves of it for countless reasons. Can you remember that as a teenager, you wouldn’t mind sacrificing a nap if you felt something was more important than just sleeping? Anyway, it was never just sleeping. Many of us would never realize the importance of napping until at least 25 years old. As soon as we approach thirty, we begin to appreciate the need to be dead to the world for a minimum of six to eight hours a day. And we don’t want to commit to that, no matter how fun a party is.
Is it imperative to sleep?
Can you answer this question in No? Of course you can’t. Insomnia: the word was coined not without reason. People understand the damage to their bodies if they cannot sleep for any reason, even for one night. For an extreme example of an insomniac, you can watch the movie The Machinist. The simple but profound movie will give you a perfect idea of what can happen to your mind and body if you don’t sleep for a long time.
Not sleeping at all is, of course, a serious situation. Still, many of us don’t even realize that we can’t sleep properly throughout our lives. You may have noticed that a person in your office feels dizzy all the time. Or that boy in your class who yawns every time you see him. That obese girl at your school that you make fun of may be overweight just because she doesn’t sleep well. Among the dozens of side effects of tossing and turning at night, the most important is that you forget your sense of self and start feeling depressed about life.
It’s strange but common for us to accept poor quality of sleep just for the sake of it. Even when we know that we need to sleep soundly every night, we accept all the disturbances in our body just because we feel that there is no solution for them. Do not worry. The solution is there with you, and you don’t need to visit a dietitian or doctor.
What is the way out of insomnia?
Have you heard of something called a Smartphone? If there; maybe in your hand right now. Laptops, Smartphones, Kindles, Tablets, and Televisions – All of these electronic devices have made your life easier without a doubt. You may feel much more informed than ever just because you can afford a smartphone and the internet. You may find that you should spend a little less time on your mobile phone than you do today. Still, it may be difficult for you to get rid of it.
Nobody asks you to get rid of your mobile phone forever. You need him in your life for better reasons than anyone can judge. However, a Smartphone is something that has improved and worsened our lives at the same time. We cannot think about our life without this little device in hand at all times. Still, you must identify with the fact that it interferes with your sleep.
What is the reason to keep your mobile away?
While we sleep, we all have the habit of checking the messages that may have reached WhatsApp. We feel an obligation to respond to those messages. After all, it is our duty to respond to our loved ones, right? Yeah right. Then, once we are done with WhatsApp, we open Facebook; then it’s Instagram’s turn, and maybe Snapchat at last. So this is the endless cycle that repeats roughly every night. Perhaps, you will not get carried away by this habit when you are exhausted. Still, you keep your mobile by your side when you fall asleep, right? Keeping your phone away while you sleep is the only thing this whole ordeal is about.
In addition to making mistakes in our diet and routine, we simply make a simple mistake by placing our cell phone next to the bed or even under the pillow while we sleep. Life is hard these days. The last thing we would like to think about while we sleep are the worries we face during the day. When you are about to sleep, you visit the whole world in just one or two hours through social networks. However, you must have noticed that when you sleep with your mobile at arm’s length, your hand automatically starts searching for it as soon as your sleep is interrupted.
You may feel thirsty at night, for example, but instead of searching for water at first, you would like to search for a message from your loved one that may flash on your screen. But how would you feel if that message was something you didn’t want to see? It can become a cause of anxiety for you for the rest of the night. You may not be able to do something about it at 3am, but you will lose sleep over it. Similarly, you may want to go to the bathroom late at night. You reach for your phone to see the time, but you don’t realize that the light from the screen is harmful to your eyes. If you have sensitive eyes, you should not look at your phone while you sleep.
How to sleep without your mobile?
Can you think what kind of ridiculous idea that is? How would you wake up in the morning without your alarm clock on the phone? The answer is Alarm Clock! That cute piece of clock on your table that you left years ago is the only thing you need on your table instead of your mobile phone all night. Those little notification alerts keep you upset all night. Even if you keep your phone in Silent mode, the curiosity to check your phone in every possible minute will not go away.
It may seem difficult to sleep without your phone at first, but it is an achievable feat. You would feel uncomfortable for a couple of days and you would miss your phone. Despite this, after a week or so, you would definitely feel the difference in the quality of your sleep. You will start to have a deep sleep and wake up fresher than before.
The idea is to keep your phone in your closet or in a place where you cannot easily reach it. When you are sound asleep, the last thing you want to do is reach for your phone. When you have a hard time picking up the cell phone, just come to bed and enjoy your sleep. Yes, making forty winks becomes much more enjoyable when there are no interruptions around you. Don’t trust any mobile app that claims to assess your quality of sleep. For these apps to work, you need to keep your phone very close to you, which is not a good idea at all. Just observe how your body feels when you wake up in the morning. Your own body is the greatest evaluator of everything that affects it, positively or negatively.
Isn’t it worth your health to try? Try to keep your mobile phone away from you tonight and see how you feel the next morning. If you feel good, you can add value to your life with a simple idea. Little things like this make life more enjoyable. Look at them.
