As a person who used to suffer from insomnia, I used some methods to go to sleep and improve my sleep quality successfully. After I changed my mental state, getting up every morning always feels very good and hopeful. But in some cases, you will still encounter external factors that will hinder your sleep.
Have you encountered these external factors like annoying noises, neighbors’ noise, car noise, dog barking?
These are external factors that prevent you from actually falling asleep.
Must-Try Enter Sleep Mode
But there are some internal factors that you can overcome:
The noise of your child, the son suddenly cried, you must marry him. But, there is also a more subtle sound of the clock, don’t underestimate the ticking sound; in some cases, you will not be able to sleep. I have traps in this situation for myself. I’m thinking about something. But, too late that I have to close my eyes and fall asleep, but that’s a kind of ticking, but I can’t get into that kind of sleep. Think about it. It happened, at the moment, my head did not stop working.
It’s a point, what must stop from work, telling your head must rest. Show my experience & the method I used for you. To get into sleep, you must first create a “sleeping feeling.”
The most important thing to create a sense of falling asleep is:
Lower your brainwaves.
Whenever you go to sleep, you are prone to external factors that can cause you to be troubled by bedtime, so you must do something to change the situation. Here are some of the methods I have provided that I have used myself:
1. Positive Attitude towards Life
We all know that negative emotions can make people depressed and unhappy, and you will let yourself be in a low state. Although there are many negative emotions, you have to try to transform them; it’s your homework.
You can achieve negative conversion to positive by doing something successfully or practicing positive thinking about one thing in your life. It’s not easy, but believe me, you can keep yourself happy after practicing.
Talking to your friends can also help transform your negative emotions. You talk about a bad thing; maybe it’s nothing to your friends, just a piece of cake. The point is that you have to say it, and turning negative into positive is a critical process.
2.You Must Have Plenty of Exercises
As I mentioned in another article, exercise is essential for balancing the body and mind. Balance can make it easier to get into normal sleep even if there is noise.
Regular exercise can help you out of the possibility of insomnia, especially weight training, through bench presses, lifting dumbbells, and squats. However, these projects make you tired enough to breathe, and muscles need to be slack after heavy use. This state will prompt your body to go to sleep.
Dumbbells and squats are more common in many training programs because you don’t have to be in the gym. You can start your workout when you buy a dumbbell home.
3. Riding Bicycle
It’s part of a leisure activity that you can do after you finish working on the day. Cycling through many landscapes, trying to shift focus, helps you to express your emotions.
If you don’t have a bicycle, riding a flywheel is another way. Still, the flywheel, I think, is relatively closed because you only have to be at home, not through the outside scenery. On the other hand, while watching the TV while riding the flywheel, you can get sports effects. But receiving TV information doesn’t help you shift your brain’s pressure. Instead, you receive more complex emotions directly from the TV.
Therefore, I suggest that you wear sports headphones whether you are riding a bicycle outdoors. Or you were hanging a flywheel at home so that you can concentrate on achieving a certain degree of sports.
4. Expand Meditation
Meditation is also an efficient and effective way to help you fall asleep. Simply put, this makes you relax. You will skip the murmurs around you and temporarily be on your senses. It’s a natural, peaceful state. You are sitting on the bed. Sitting on the plate, you are in a state of indifference. With meditation music, it takes only one hour to achieve relaxation.
In my experience, the irritating emotions cause by my thoughts. When I’m thinking about planning certain things, but the rain is disturbing me, I will open the meditation music to make me quiet.
I think that meditation is a form to help achieve a slow process. When the music play, I deliberately let go of those thoughts, throw myself away, in a state of nothing, until finally, I find that I ignore those noisy miscellaneous.
I know that I managed to convert, so I’m no longer annoyed. Of course, it takes a long time to practice, and there is no need to deliberately squat, but I think the effect of sitting will be extra points you can try.
5. Do Yoga
Doing yoga is also one of the best ways to help improve sleep quality. However, this project will make the body a little more dynamic but not as intense as weight training. It’s a relatively light and moderate exercise. I think that’s similar to doing meditation. It’s combined with music to help your body relax.
My wife has also been in a state of insomnia. Still, since she started practicing yoga, she fell in love with this feeling of relaxation. If you are interested in relaxing yoga, I have another article to share.
6. Replace High-Quality Mattress
It’s the essential part. Whether you have used any method to improve your sleep, you should be comfortable lying in bed. When your body touches the bed, the elasticity it gives you gives your body muscles a relaxed phase and enough support to complete your sleep task.
High-quality mattresses can help you get started with energy every day to achieve high-efficiency results. Hence, it would help if you had it most for serious work.
I also wrote an article comment about high-quality mattresses.
There is no way to relax. However, you can improve your sleep quality because your mental state is the ultimate way to control yourself. No one holds you to think about some irritating things, but you can choose to make yourself high every night—quality sleep quality.
I’m replacing my high-quality mattress with my wife to complete the task of relaxing every night, then what about you?
