Your body loves consistency, so sticking to a particular sleep schedule will make it easier for your body to wake up in the morning. Make sure that you sleep for seven to eight hours to feel rested throughout the day. You must switch off the computer or television at least half an hour before you go off to bed. Also, bright lights act as a disturbance for your brain. Read a book or drink a glass of warm milk to feel relaxed before you sleep. Contrary to popular belief that alcohol puts you off to sleep, drinking alcohol or coffee at night can keep you awake and may disrupt your sleeping pattern as well. While it is okay to have one drink to relax yourself, refrain from going overboard.Strenuous exercise is the right way to put your body off to sleep. Make sure that you are exercising an hour to two before you hit the bed. Apart from this, exercising once you wake up in the morning will energise you and keep slack away for the rest of the day.A refreshing and rejuvenating splash of water is a great way to kick-start your body’s nervous system and also feel recharged throughout the day.- TOI
