Not resting affects emotions, health, and even relationships. So we share some tips to be able to sleep.

During the day, exposing yourself to sunlight for at least 30 minutes is beneficial for later falling asleep.

You should not eat or drink too much at night because this way, it overlaps with digestion. And if you drink too much you will want to get up to urinate.

If you do take a nap, keep it short (experts say the ideal is 20-30 minutes and never more than an hour) and before 3 pm.

It is important to have a fixed time to go to bed and get up so that the body takes the habit and does not get upset.

Do not have near the bed objects that release electromagnetic waves, for example, cellphones

Before going to bed do a relaxing activity, be it listening to music, reading a book or taking a hot bath. Avoid watching television, radio, or being aware of your mobile phone.

If you drink caffeine or smoke you will have trouble falling asleep as the effect of these stimulants can take up to 8 hours to dissolve.

If you’re awake in bed for more than 20 minutes and can’t fall asleep, get up and try to do something relaxing until you get sleepy.

It is important to go to bed without worries and leave them for the next day.
