TIPS FOR QUALITY SLEEP

Inspiration

A good rest is fundamental for our well-being.

However, the demands of daily life sometimes cause us to bring our problems to bed and prevent us from sleeping properly. How can we improve the quality of our sleep? At Halmma, we know different ways to ensure that our rest is truly restorative.

Establish a Sleep Routine

Going to bed at different times each day, staying up late, or sleeping in for hours on weekends… These are all habits that can worsen the quality of our sleep. That’s why creating and maintaining a sleep routine is essential.

Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This helps regulate your biological clock and improves the quality of your sleep.

It’s important to sleep for roughly the same number of hours every day. Aim for at least 6 hours of rest each day, although the ideal for an adult is between 7 and 8 hours every day.

Enjoy a Relaxing Bath

A hot bath before bedtime can be very beneficial. The warmth of the water relaxes the muscles and relieves tension, preparing your body for rest.

You can add bath salts or essential oils (lavender has a calming effect) to enjoy a more relaxing experience, and you can even play soft music. If you make bathing a part of your nightly routine, you can improve the quality of your deep sleep.

If this is not possible, a relaxing shower with hot water is essential every night before going to bed.

Exercise Regularly

There are many benefits of regular exercise for our body and mind, and it’s also excellent for improving sleep quality.

Regular exercise helps tire our bodies physically and, at the same time, reduces stress and anxiety, which can interfere with our proper rest.

However, you should avoid intense exercise just before bedtime, as this can activate you and make it difficult to sleep. If you can’t exercise in the morning, try to do it in the early afternoon because otherwise, that exercise will be more harmful than beneficial for achieving quality sleep.

A Book Instead of a Screen Before Bed

Before bedtime, it’s advisable to engage in quiet activities such as reading. But not on a screen! The blue light emitted by electronic devices can interfere with your circadian rhythm and suppress the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep.

It’s much better to read a book instead of using electronic devices before going to bed. This activity can be very relaxing, as it prepares your mind for rest, improving sleep quality.

Practice Meditation

Among the many benefits of meditation for our well-being, it’s also a great tool for improving sleep quality.

Practicing meditation or mindfulness before bed helps calm the mind and reduce stress, which can facilitate deeper and more restorative sleep. These are great techniques for relaxing your mind, disconnecting from the worries of daily life, and achieving better sleep quality.

Ensure a Conducive Environment in Your Bedroom

The environment in your bedroom also plays an important role in the quality of your sleep. Make sure your room is dark, quiet, and at a comfortable temperature.

To do this, it’s necessary to invest in a good mattress and comfortable pillows. It’s also recommended to use blackout curtains to prevent light from seeping through your windows. And the decoration and layout of your bedroom can also affect your rest. Therefore, it’s best to keep it minimalist and relaxing, without bright or stimulating colors.
