Reduce usage of mobile phone, computer or any digital screen at night

Not worried about the future plan more
People worried about their future life. If you more think about your future, your mind continuously running and it will be stopping you to get better sleep. Stop overthinking, and stay positive always. Everything happens for the reason.
Not worried about the past
I used to think about my whole day’s story when I’m going to bed. But after a time I realize that it would lead me overthinking and alternatively to not a get better sleep.
Some days passed very well and some days are the worst of the worst in my life. So, now I believe not to think more about the past that I don’t be changed anyway.
Eat lite food as dinner
Most of the fitness enthusiast told us to have a lite dinner always, I always appreciate them. But it is not possible for everyone. Because in our country there are so many people who go to office did their breakfast at home, quit lunch and take dinner directly at home.
I prefer to eat almost between 7 to 7:30 P.M. for myself and I sleep at around 11:00 P.M. So my body gets almost 4 hours to digest the food that I ate in the evening and get proper sleep.
Avoid caffeine at night. Avoid heavy carbs like white rice at night. I personally drink a glass of warm milk before bedtime and it helps me to get better sleep. You can also try it!
Take at least 20-30 minutes night walk before sleeping
Whenever I did heavy works in the day I get better sleep. If you doing some heavy tasks throughout the day then definitely you get the better sleep but if you doing heavy tasks and after that, you didn’t get the better sleep then my friend you have to fix an appointment with your doctor first.
Usually, I don’t perform any physical heavy task throughout the day. So, I just walk around 30-45 minutes before my bedtime. Believe me or not I personally feel the change in my quality of sleep. Studies show that a person who walks for at least around 45 minutes a day, will reduce 90% chances to get diabetes in the future.
I don’t believe in the meditation before one month, but thanks to my friend hemal who introduce me to meditation for more focusing on the works. Believe me, it works.
Meditation has the power to find your inner peace. Right now, I’m feeling it. I’m now calmer than before. The more peace you find the more you free from the stress and ultimately it leads to better sleep.
I usually do 5 minutes of meditation in a day. I do it in the morning but you can do it just before bedtime. It will definitely help you to get better sleep.
Change your mattress
The mattress is a very crucial part for better sleep. If you have hard and bad odour mattress, then chances are more you do not get better sleep at night.
Always, invest your money into quality, not quantity. A high-quality mattress can easily survive for 8-10 years. So, always invest in a quality product, but quality products are expensive but it worth of the money for sure.
Nowadays, the mattress is made from high-quality materials, that reduce your back pain and body pain. You can sleep comfortably the whole night.
If your existing mattress is 6 years or more than old, then I recommend you to buy a new one. If you purchase the right one then it would definitely help you to get better sleep.
