If you know me, i am an extremely light sleeper by nature. Any little noise/sounds wakes me up both day and night. I definitely DO NOT sleep a good 8 hours per day but i do value my sleep and this month (since it is sleep month) i have teamed up with Casper to give you guys some tips on having better quality sleep. 🙂
There are various factors leading to the lack of quality of sleep in general. Here are some of the identified factors that mainly contributes to sleeping problem and ways to counter them.
Sunday Night Insomnia
As a young little girl~ i never did enjoyed the idea of napping. It somehow tends to mess up my sleeping mode at night, leading me to find it nearly impossible to fall asleep. As i grew older, i noticed that i tend to have migraines whenever i do managed to take a nap in the afternoon. As an adult and mother of two now, I have cultivated a sleeping routine whereby i sleep by 12:30am and wakes up at 6:15am daily. These tips mentioned above indeed helped me to gained better quality sleep. However, I am also a huge fan of dehumidifier + essential oils and i believe not only it makes the room smells nice, it also helps soothes and eases me to bed easily. I love infusing the aromatic scents of lavender + lemon + peppermint. As i do regularly exercise, it has also helped with improving the quality of sleep i get daily even though i don’t sleep a full 8 hours. Needless to say, consumption of caffeine is a NO NO NO… 5 hours before bedtime for me. 😛
Do you have any sleeping tips to share? Would love to hear your thoughts on this. 🙂
