6 Ways To Get Restful Sleep
Hey Glamies, Do you fall asleep easily or is it a fight every night to get restful, peaceful sleep? Well for me I'm knocked out before my head hits the pillow, I mean TKO type of sleep. However, I know a couple of my friends have mentioned to me that it's not that easy for them to fall asleep or stay asleep for the entire night. I know for a fact that not getting a good night's rest can have bad effects on the body. If I don't get a good night's rest I'm super cranky in the morning, so could just imagine the agonies of not getting the proper rest each night. But no worries maybe these techniques can help.
1. Build a Nightly Ritual- Shower or bathe using Lavender. Lavender has a natural calming effect that helps you relax.
2. Use Sound as a Signal-The more we repetitively use the soothing sounds of a white noise machine into our schedule, the more the body will begin to associate those sounds with sleep.
3- Keeps The Room Quiet- white noise creates a masking effect, blocking out those sudden changes that frustrate light sleepers, or people trying to fall asleep.
4- White Noise Sleep Benefits- A sound machine generates white noise, which stops those inconsistencies in sound from reaching our ears while we’re asleep and waking us up.
5- Train Our Brains to Relax-we need a way to let our thoughts calm down and to relax at the end of the day. Journaling can be very effective, writing down what happened during the day or even making a to-do list for the next day can help relax our brain.
6- Pink Noise-Studies have shown that pink noise might be even more beneficial when it comes to sleep, as it helps to calm our brain waves and encourages sleep. The difference between white noise and pink noise is that white noise is a constant high frequency and pink noise is a lower frequency noise that fluctuates.
So do you think these steps can be beneficial for you? Try it and see!
