19th March is celebrated as World Sleep Day. In our busy lives, we must sleep and try to improve our sleep quality. Most people around the world do not get a good night’s sleep because of so many reasons.
Here are some of the ways by which you can improve your sleep quality –
- Reduce blue light exposure after 5:00 PM. Constant exposure to blue light can be harmful to our eyes, but it also affects our circadian rhythm. Try wearing glasses that block blue lights or instal apps that block blue light on your computer or smartphones
- Do not consume caffeine at night or late in the day. Caffeine has a lot of good benefits for the body, but it is a known fact that consuming caffeine 6 hours before you go to sleep can be bad for your sleep quality.
- Avoid daytime naps. Power naps can be beneficial, but long, irregular daytime naps can be harmful to your regular sleep cycle. This could be a reason for poor sleep quality or disrupted sleep in the night.
- Be consistent. You must train your body to follow a certain consistency when it comes to your sleeping patterns. Go to bed at a certain time and wake up at a certain time. This will ensure that you get a good night’s sleep.
