Seven ways to sleep better at night

 New Delhi: Sleeping is one of the most important activities of the day. A good night’s sleep not only improves your attention but also helps you to sustain a healthy body.

However, not getting adequate sleep can increase your stress level and affect your memory.

So, here are seven ways that will help you sleep better:

Stick to a sleep schedule

Follow a sleeping schedule. Go to bed and wake up at same time everyday, even on holidays. Being consistent reinforces your biological clock and helps you rest better.


Eat & drink right

Cut the consumption of caffeinated beverages at least 6 hours before bedtime. Avoid drinking alcohol immediately before bed to avoid mid-night toilet trips.


Follow your bedtime ritual

Having a bedtime ritual can help you fall asleep faster. It can be anything taking a warm water bath to reading a book.


Get cozy

Create a sleep-inducing environment in your room before going to bed. This includes dimming the lights, turning on soothing music and setting optimum room-temperature.


Limit your nap-time

Long nap-time during day can disrupt your sleeping patterns during night. Limit your nap-time to 10-20 minutes during the day to enjoy sound sleep during night.



Include regular physical activity in your daily routine. This will not only help you sleep faster but also promote deep-sleep.
