Keep your phone aside
Our mobile phones are the biggest obstacles to have a sound sleep. We all keep scrolling our phone most of the time at night. Thus, snatches away our sleeping time. Thus, one should keep the phone away or must switch it off before going to the bed.
Put your feet slightly upwards
Usually, the frequent urination also creates a problem in sleeping properly. This is because of the excess fluid in our body which pushes down while we sleep. Thus, keep a pillow beneath your feet to raise them up. Besides this, you can also do leg raise exercise before going to the bed.
Yoga is the finest solution to most of our problems. We all must practice yoga daily to sleep better at night. Those who have troubling sleeping must do yoga even before going to the bed.
Most of the times, even hunger pangs affect our sleep. When we starve ourselves and do not eat properly, we tend to wake up in the middle of the night. Thus, we must have dinner by 7 at night and make sure you eat properly to satiate your hunger. Don’t eat in an excess amount.
Set the temperature of the room
The temperature of the room is also the deciding factor of your sleep. We should set the normal room temperature, neither too high nor too low.
