We all like to live a healthy and happy life, however, sometimes, the pressures of life get to us soo badly that we are not able to even get a good sleep at night. Sleep is one of the most important things that we all do on a daily basis and without it, we can get so drained that we can fall ill.
Our body has so many different systems that work together to help us perform certain tasks. We have our mind which also keeps our determination up and helps our body move and do things. During the day, the body and mind are bombarded with so much stress, pollution and other things that you need to give your body time to repair itself. We are not made of metal or stone, the body and mind require a rest period too so that it can recuperate and get ready for the next day.
How to have quality sleep
When people sleep, each person has their own position. Some people like to lay on their back, some on the stomach while many prefer to sleep on their side. Whatever your position is, here is what you need to sleep well.
A quiet and soothing environment
Your bedroom should not allow much outside sound to come in However, having some light music like panpipe music or the sound of a river flowing can make you sleep better because they help you fall asleep faster.
A good mattress and pillow
Depending on your body type, you should have the right mattress and pillow. Do not get a mattress that is too soft as it will not support your spin. A pillow should match the position you sleep in. There are special designs made for those who sleep on their side or stomach so pick one that suits you.
When you sleep your body starts to repair itself, but other functions shut down for the night. Your room should not be too hot or too cold. Make sure you keep the air con or heater in your room at a moderate temperature because it will give you a better sleep and not make you feel too cold or hot.
