Following a few simple rules can help improve sleep quality and relieve insomnia.
Lack of sleep leads to nervous disorders, stress, weakening of the immune system, impaired cognitive abilities and general exhaustion of the body.
High-quality sleep for at least 7-8 hours a day is extremely important for human health, said Candidate of Medical Sciences Varvara Kramar.
– In order to fully sleep and rest, it is important to properly prepare for bed, – the specialist emphasized.
So, the doctor recommended to exercise no later than two hours before bedtime. In addition, according to the expert, it is necessary to abandon action-packed films and, in general, watching TV in bed.
– Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows. Preferably hypoallergenic. Pillows also have a shelf life, so change them periodically. And remember: the bed should only be for sleeping! You cannot have dinner in bed, watch TV or work with a laptop on it, – noted Varvara Kramar.
According to the doctor, a warm bath and a glass of warm milk with a spoonful of honey can help you fall asleep well.
The specialist recommended taking sleeping pills only on prescription and not for a long time, since almost all such drugs are addictive.
A new danger of insufficient sleep was previously identified. Experts have proven that sleep not only affects the physical, mental and emotional state of a person, but is also directly responsible for his life expectancy.
Experts have developed an effective method to combat insomnia and sleep deprivation. To do this, it is necessary to regulate breathing.
Earlier, an international group of scientists proposed an effective recipe for how to fall asleep on time.
Recreation in nature on weekends, according to American and German researchers, is enough to fall asleep on time on weekdays. In order to enhance the effect, scientists also recommend spending more time in the sunlight during the day and, on the contrary, limiting the lighting to the maximum in the evening.
Scientists have listed 5 habits that annually shorten the lives of millions of people.
