How to Sleep Deeper

Everyone, world over is waking up to the perils of less sleep. After all all of us have faced the struggle at some point or the other in present day living. Sleep author, Arianna Huffington best highlights the reason behind the oft heard modern cry of feeling tired. In her book,The Sleep Revolution, she says, "When we shrink our whole reality down to pending projects, when our life becomes our endless to-do list, it's difficult to put them aside each night and let ourselves fall asleep and connect with something deeper.”

Hence the need to detach and lead a balanced life becomes even more relevant. We need to take out time to enjoy the little joys of life, spend time with nature and loved ones, and disconnect from the trappings of gadgets, while keeping routine.

Here are 12 ways to sleep deep, from Arianna’s book-

1. Create a bedroom environment that’s dark, quiet, and cool (between 60 and 67 degrees). 
2. Turn off electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime. 
3. Don’t charge your phone next to your bed. Even better: Gently escort all devices completely out of your room. 
4. Stop drinking caffeine after 2 p.m. 
5. Use your bed for sleep and sex only—no work! 
6. Keep pets off the bed (sorry, Mr. Snuffles). 
7. Take a hot bath with Epsom salts in the evening to help calm your mind and body. 
8. Wear pajamas, nightdresses, or even a special T-shirt—it’ll send a sleep-friendly message to your body. If you wore it to the gym, don’t wear it to bed. 
9. Do some light stretching, deep breathing, yoga, or meditation to help your body and your mind transition to sleep. 
10. Choose a real book or an e-reader that does not emit blue light, if you like to read in bed. And make sure it’s not work-related: novels, poetry, philosophy—anything but work. 11. Sip camomile or lavender tea to ease yourself into sleep mode. 
12. Write down a list of what you’re grateful for before bed. It’s a great way to make sure your blessings get the closing scene of the night.
