Okay guys, I have changed one word…. but I am sure you get the meaning? At the end of a duty day when lots of things have gone on, we need time to absorb information and events. Check out my top 10 tips to get to sleep with ease.

With our lifestyle choice, we are always on the go. Whether it be house issues, running weekend activities or trips – at the end of the day we need to take some time for ourselves. Seldom does time pass more slowly than when insomnia hits at 3am. And the next day at work can go just as slowly—and just as poorly—in your sleep-deprived state! Following are suggestions that might help you get to sleep and stay asleep.

  1.  Structure your sleep. Try to go to bed and arise at the same times every day.
  2.  Create a soothing bedtime routine. Watching the news or reading your e-mail are not good sleep inducers.
  3.  Create a suitable environment. Keep your bedroom quiet, dark and cool, and your feet warm.
  4.  Exercise during the day. Exercise too close to bedtime might be too stimulating.
  5.  Avoid caffeine within at least three to six hours of bedtime. Nicotine, sugary snacks and alcohol can also cause wakefulness.
  6. Try deep breathing. Inhale for four slow counts, hold for four, exhale for four.
  7. Release worries. Try writing your concerns down, along with possible solutions.
  8. Organize what you need for the next day. Being well prepared will likely allow you to sleep better.
  9. Don’t work, eat or watch TV in bed. Keep your sleeping place for sleep.
  10. Cover your clock. Figuring out how much sleep you’re missing intensifies the stress and makes it harder to go back to sleep. 

Night night  …..  Sleep well. Z zzzzzz

Remember, you are more than just boarding :)
