Sound sleep is a natural medicine for restoring sound mental state and physical balance.


Someone has rightly said, “Sleep is the best meditation.”


After day’s hectic schedule, one requires adequate sleep to bounce back the next day, with renewed energy and vitality.


Here are some simple tips to help you sleep soundly and uninterruptedly.


Slice off the daily caffeine:


People drinking caffeine are unable to have sound sleep. It is primarily due to the fact that caffeine interferes with the effect of adenosine, a chemical responsible for inducing sleep.


Nocturnal urination is also increased by caffeine intake.


Avoid smoking or chewing tobacco:


Besides caffeine, nicotine also causes insomnia or sleeplessness. Nicotine raises the heart rate and blood pressure, thus leads to wakefulness.


Smoking, before retiring to bed is not recommended so shun off this bad habit and sleep soundly.


Restrict alcohol intake:


Alcohol accounts for almost 10 percent of cases of insomnia. It suppresses the nervous system and its soporific effect vanishes in few hours and then comes duration of disturbed sleep.


You can improvise your sleep quality by daily physical exercises and abiding by a proper sleep routine. Avoid drinking coffee, tea alcohol and cigarettes few hours before sleep.


Remember sound sleep is mandatory for sound health, and wellness.
