Sleep Tips to Help Reduce Stress
Sleep is one of the most important factors for your general health. It is one of the most important factors for our mental, physical and emotional health. We consolidate memory and build up our body, filters out waste from our body and regenerate our cells. I have read a lot about sleep and during my time as a general practitioner in Denmark advised many people with sleep disorders. Here are my best tips:
What You'll Need
- Alarm clock
What You'll Do
- Sleep between 6-8 hours a day
- Maintain right sleeping conditions: A cool, dark bedroom without too much artificial light.
- Get an alarm clock and leave the phone outside the bedroom by the end of your bed. As a bonus, this might even make you more present and improve your intimate relationship with your partner.
- Stop drinking caffeine-rich drinks including coffee and teas high on caffeine at least 6 hours before going to bed.
- Do not look at screens or artificial light from laptops or TV's the last hour before going to bed.
- Do something relaxing the last hour before going to bed like reading a book or taking a bath. Make sure not to do work-related stuff just before going to bed.
