Hello Pretty Readers;
As we know, more than half of us wake up groggy every morning and couldn’t figure out why! This is because of the poor sleep quality. It doesn’t matter how long you sleep for; if it was a low-quality sleep, you’ll wake up tired.
There are many reasons affecting your sleep quality resulting you to wake up tired and unfresh. Here are a few of them.
Excessive Scrolling: Yes, by that I’m referring to our addiction towards Internet and Television. Most of us use phone or watch TV for late hours at night which is a huge disaster.
The blue rays emitting from your Television/laptop/Smartphone screens can make it hard for you to fall asleep. Reason: Blue light suppresses the production of a hormone (Melatonin) secreted at sunset that tells the brain to sleep because it’s night-time.
Irregular Bedtime: Always try to follow a proper schedule – not only for sleeping but for whatever you do. Most of the tiredness happens because we’re bad at sticking to regular bedtime. Having said that, it’s best to go bed early as you must have heard “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
Get Going During The Day: Obviously, because if you stay lazy or inactive during the daytime, you won’t be tired enough by the night-time to sleep well. Do jogging and exercising at least 4-5 times a week so that your body demands rest making you sleep properly.
Cut Down Caffeine: Specially few hours before going to bed because caffeine keeps our mind awake resulting in a poor sleep quality. Hence, we wake up tired.
Look What You Eat: Because eating spicy, oily or a lot of junk food (even eating a lot in general) can cause digestive problems which hinders our sleep. Also, being Muslims our religion tells us to eat light dinners 🙂
Eating Schedule: Eating right before bedtime or having a short gap between dinner and zZz-time can cause discomfort during sleep resulting in tiredness even after 8 hours of rest.
Sleeping Too Much: You read that right! If You sleep a lot during the day time – or even if you sleep for long hours at night, you’ll wake up tired and groggy.
Sleep is a phenomenon, not only sleeping sound but long enough (8 hours at night in general) is important for waking up fresh and energised in the morning. A little attention towards your lifestyle can make a huge difference on your sleep and positive energy.
