Recall your pre- sleep routine. Are you guilty of these bad habits?

 

Caffeinated midnight snacking

Caffeine is a stimulant can block sleep neurotransmitters which can cause insomnia. Refined sugars can stress the organs in charge of hormone regulation – resulting in making you wake up in the night as your levels fluctuate.

 

Sleeping with pets

According to research, 62% of pet owners who shared their bed or bedroom with their pet experienced poor sleep quality. Veterinary scientists say sleeping with your pets increases the chances of contracting everything from harmful parasites to plagues.

 

Having a nightcap

Though alcohol does allow healthy people to fall asleep quicker, it reduces REM sleep – the phase of sleep associated with deep dreaming. Disruptions in REM sleep may cause daytime drowsiness. It can also ruin your sleep and give you severe headache.

 

Using technology before bed

75% of people use a Smartphone, laptop, tablet and gaming devices before going to bed. However, these gadgets emit blue light, which is said to delay the production of melatonin, the sleep inducing hormone.

 

Leaving the TV ON

39% of people watch TV to wind down for sleep. However, watching TV before bedtime will just make you to stay up later, harming the sleep cycle and leading to poor quality sleep. You can listen to the radio to help yourself fall asleep and get the TV out of the bedroom.
