Many people struggle with the problem of not sleeping well. This, of course, has a major impact on their functioning and their entire daily life. Sleeping well is perhaps even more important than eating healthily.
Ivigorating sleep is a necessity
During sleep, the organism not only recovers. It is necessary for memory, for sorting out all the data in the brain, for an energetic reset, for a good emotional balance and so much more.
Sleep also has to do with important cycles of our physiological functioning. Sleep is an electromagnetic phenomenon and is also hormonally determined.
Even more important in times of stress
In times of stress, sleeping is even more important than ever. A nervous system under stress yearns for recovery and for homeostasis and relaxation. This natural correction of tension is achieved through sleep.
A few tips for a refreshing sleep.
Always get up at the same time and only go to sleep when you are really tired.
Certainly do not sleep during the day. In this way, you support your own day-night rhythm. If you have not slept well at night, go to bed earlier if necessary, but certainly do not sleep during the day so as not to disrupt your natural rhythm.
Drink enough water, especially in the morning and during the day; on average one and a half litres. The brain is very sensitive to a shortage of water. It is better not to drink after 7 p.m. so as not to have to urinate at night.
Do not charge your mobile phone next to your head. Put it a few metres further away. Sleep without electricity near your bed.
Try to relax before bedtime by reading relaxing books or listening to relaxing music.
There are good natural remedies that improve the quality of sleep, such as
Escholcin by Fytobell
Dormeasan by Vogel
Sediplus by Melisana
Calming teas from, for example, Melissa, Valerian or Passiflora are certainly worth trying.
