Now that we are almost at the end of the Enhanced Community Quarantine, we should adjust our sleeping schedule and prepare ourselves from going back to our regular work environment.
But for over a month of staying in the comfort of our homes, it’s challenging to bring back our old habits and adjust to the routine we used to have.
- Adjust your bedtime
We all know that it’s easier to push away sleep than to advance sleep. This may be the hardest thing to do but it’s the foundation to change your body clock.
Don’t force yourself, make it slowly but surely. Adjust your bedtime little by little, make sure to get ready before your bedtime your mind and body should act as one so you can make this step efficient and effective.
- Don’t nap
Afternoon naps are one of the biggest factors why we are having hard to sleep at night, our mind and body is recharged and needs an outlet to release all body’s stored energy, which is why avoiding afternoon naps can make you feel sleepy earlier.
- Set a mood for relaxation and bedtime
Having a relaxed mood is a good way to set the tone before going to bed. Take a warm bath to relieve yourself or maybe play some relaxing music to ease tension. Breathing is also a great way to feel relaxed, proper breathing exercises before going to sleep will stimulate a calm feeling in your body.
