Getting a good night's sleep is important for your mood, your energy levels, and your overall health.

Sleep is under-rated. We do not realize the vital role sleep plays in our success, getting the right amount of sleep i.e. 7 to 9 hours, can increase daily productivity and keep us healthy. Inadequate sleep affects our heart, immunity and appetite. We usually tend to take it casually, compromising on sleep for other less vital tasks, so as we prioritize other things in the new year, let’s add ‘Getting Adequate Sleep’ to your NY resolutions’ list and prioritize your sleep.

Here’s a list of 3 ways to get you started with getting the right amount of beauty sleep:

Turn-off Your Gadgets

Sleep is usually not considered as an important task, it is taken very casually in lieu of tasks like late night working or messaging your friends, Facebooking, checking Instagram feeds or going on a Netflix binge; and we don’t realize how quickly time flies and its already 3 am so the best solution to prevent yourself from sacrificing on your sleep is to switch off your gadgets like mobile phones, laptop, TV etc. maximum by 10PM every night.

Make Your Bedroom Comfortable

To get a good night’s sleep, making your bed and bedroom a holy grail of comfort is absolutely essential. This can be done by lighting scented lavender candles or diffusing lavender essential oils along with having super soft bed linen and a comfortable pair of mattresses. Try to keep your bedroom minimalistic and steer clear of clutter to ensure a good night’s sleep, every night.

Engage in High-Intensity Workouts

According to research, adults who exercise more tend to go to sleep easily and stay fast asleep in comparison to adults who do not exercise. Also, getting in a high-intensity workout followed by a warm shower relaxes your body’s muscles and helps you fall asleep easily and wake up refreshed, the next morning.
