Try These 6 Tips for a Rejuvenating Sleep

Last update: 19 January, 2020

There’s nothing more comforting than to sleep through the entire night and wake up well rested from a rejuvenating sleep.  However, this doesn’t happen for everyone.

We should get at least 7 hours of sleep each night to recuperate all of our spent energy from our day.

At the same time, there are people who don’t get enough sleep and start to have health issues. These sleep problems are caused by stress, anxiety, certain medicines and other reasons. Today we are going to discuss getting a poor night’s sleep after a hard day of work. We’ll also look for solutions to improve our quality of sleep so that we are rested.

Take note of these tips that will help you have a rejuvenating sleep after working.

1. Establish a habit

The first thing we need to do is to make getting a good night’s sleep a habit. We can do this by choosing a fixed hour that we go to bed every night. This way we’ll be waiting 30 or 40 minutes until we are sleepy.

What we achieve with this is send our brain a signal that we’ll get used to realizing that this is the time we go to sleep. We must be emphatic about doing this at the same time every night.

2. Relaxation

There are many ways to relax. One of them is to do breathing exercises, taking air through the nose and expelling it through the mouth. Repeat this for 10 minutes. This way  you will be eliminating the toxins of stress and anxiety from your mind and body.

In addition, your soul will be at peace. Another exercise that we can put into practice is counting backwards from 100. Between each number we can pause and tell ourselves the same thing, “Relax”.

We are sure that you won’t notice what number you got to because when you come back to reality, it will be morning.

3. Aromatherapy

This is a thousand year old technique used for curing and relaxation. The aromatic oils can be a big help to us to obtain a rejuvenating sleep.We’ll take a little oil on our index fingers and put it behind our ears, our temples, and our neck, massaging lightly with our eyes closed.

With this, we’ll enter a state of relaxation. Sleep will come shortly. Among the oils that we recommend are the following:

• Chamomile

• Lavender

•  Mandarin

•  Eucalyptus

4.  Harmonious bedroom

Our room is our castle and that’s the best place in the house for resting. That’s why the atmosphere should be as harmonious as possible. It should be in complete order, impeccably clean, and we should avoid allowing light and noise there. We should have opaque window treatments.

This will keep out sounds that can disturb our rest. If we can’t eliminate noises and light, we can put on an eye mask and use earplugs for a fast and effective solution.

5. A light meal

We recommend that dinner, the last meal of the day, be very light and low in calories. If we eat a lot of food before going to bed, our digestive system will take more time to do its job.

A light meal
Drinking a lot of liquids is not recommended. If we do this, we’ll be running to the bathroom which will break the chain of sleep repetitively. If we would like to drink something, warm milk or a cup of tea with a little sugar would be best.

6. Inner peace for rejuvenating sleep

In order to have rejuvenating sleep, we should look for inner peace. We know that work sustains us. At the same time, we need to spend time with family and friends. If we go to bed with a lot on our minds and things we have to do, it will be difficult to sleep.

That’s why we need to take time to relax and find inner peace. That way we’ll be able to wake up the next day full of energy, with a positive attitude, ready to conquer the world.
