Sleep deprivation is one thing that we should avoid. This normally results to head ache, nausea and irritability. This also affects our concentration at work or on whatever we are doing. Good thing that over the past years that I've been working, I was already used to having different sleeping time. I can easily shift my sleeping time based on my working schedule. I would like to go back to the last time where I can sleep for about 10 to 12 hrs straight. Most of my colleagues at work would always comment that I am a person who doesn't have any problem in sleeping. I can sleep with lights on and with TV audio on. Once I'm already asleep, I'm same like in comatose (lol). I think it's time for me to go back to the last time. I'm lacking of sleep lately because of too much thinking and because of not being able to budget my time wisely.
For those who are also having sleep problems, here are some tips:
Don't take big meals at night time especially two hours before your sleeping time.
If possible, have a regular bed time and have a regular wake up time.
Avoid excessive caffeine intake and liquid intake at nigh time to avoid frequent trips to bathroom which disturbs your sleep.
Make sure that your room is comfortable. Well, this depends on your preference. But generally, most people would prefer lights off and completely noise down. So turn off TV and computer.
Postpone your worries until the following day. Stay calm and relaxed.
Set your room temperature to your desired level.
Don't go to bed when you're hungry. Hunger pangs will wake you up for sure.
Maintain a healthful balance of nutrition and exercise.
Lastly, and I would say I am guilty of this.....
Avoid worrying on things left undone.... for things do happen even when you're asleep.
