Sleep Journey: The Power of Habits and Consistency

Sleep Journey: The Power of Habits and Consistency

We are made to persist, that’s how we find out who we are” - Tobias Wolff

This blog is intended for everyone who are in search of a good sleep and are looking for the right place to know ‘all things sleep’. Let’s first understand, what is a good sleep? Is it the amount of time spent in bed or the amount of time spent sleeping or the amount of undisturbed sleep period. It can all get confusing when we get into the theory. Let me simplify for you. 

Sleep is a state where your body and mind shuts down to do the maintenance work needed for the next day. You are restarting to save all the data you consumed during the day. Isn’t it amazing that this happens naturally without having to force anything from our side. But unfortunately over the years, the brain’s natural circadian rhythm has been disrupted and we are faced with modern sleep issues. 

This is where a good sleep hygiene practices can restore the body’s natural system back into its place. But how can we do that? 

“Two things to keep in mind: Habits and Consistency”

Habit is anything you keep doing over a period of time and the key to forming these habits is consistency. They are both interrelated. That being said, do not form habits that is superficial and short-lived. It’s important to focus on the quality of your sleep than the number of hours you spend in bed. It’s the overall hours spent in restorative sleep, your overall energy level and the right perspective towards your sleep. 

What can you do for establishing a good sleep routine? 

Establish a Routine: Consistency is key. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day to regulate your body's internal clock.

Create a Restful Environment:

Ensure your bedroom is cool, quiet, and comfortable. Consider using blackout curtains, eye masks, or white noise machines to block out disruptive elements.

Mind Your Diet and Exercise:

Avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and alcohol close to bedtime. Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper sleep.

Wind Down Before Bed:

Develop a pre-sleep routine to signal your body it's time to rest. This can include reading, taking a warm bath, or practicing relaxation exercises.

Limit Screen Time:

The blue light emitted by phones, tablets, and computers can interfere with your ability to fall asleep. Try to disconnect at least an hour before bedtime.

Remember, the journey to better sleep is a personal one, and what works for one person may not work for another. We encourage you to explore, experiment, and engage with us as you discover what makes for your perfect night's sleep.
