How to improve sleep quality.

Even if your sleep quality appears to be fine at first glance, it can still be reduced, which will undoubtedly affect your overall quality of life.

Sleep is a state so natural that it rarely draws close attention to itself. A person thinks about sleep, as a rule, if he wants to sleep, if he doesn’t get enough sleep, if he suffers from any sleep disorders, he sees nightmares in a dream, and so on.

However, even if your sleep quality appears to be fine at first glance, it can still be reduced, which will undoubtedly affect your overall quality of life.

Bad sleep is when you spend more than seven or nine hours a day sleeping, but you still don't get enough sleep, feel lethargic, overwhelmed, lose clarity thoughts and so on.

Of course, the cause of such a condition may not be sleep, but some kind of latent disease, therefore, with the above symptoms, it is worth visiting a doctor first. However, if your health is in order, you should think about how to improve the quality of sleep.

• First of all, make sure your mattress and pillows are comfortable enough for you. It is better to choose an orthopedic mattress, hard, pillows should also not be too soft. In these matters, before making a choice, it is best to consult an orthopedic doctor.

• Keep your bedroom well ventilated at all times, but avoid drafts. The optimal temperature for sleeping is 20-22 degrees.

• Try to get enough rest before going to bed. Physical exercises can be done one and a half to two hours before bedtime, mental activity should be completed at about the same time.

• Turn off the computer and TV half an hour before bedtime, do not read newspapers, books and magazines. You can breathe fresh air on the balcony, take a relaxing bath or devote this time to intimate relationships.

• Try to be quiet before going to bed.

• Do not sort things out shortly before bedtime, do not fight or argue.

• Before going to bed, it is best to block out direct sunlight by closing blinds or drawing curtains. This is most relevant in the spring and summer months, when it gets light very early.

• And, finally, before going to bed, it is best to tune in a positive mood, think about something pleasant that can be embodied in your nightly dreams.
