The modern rhythm of life leaves its mark on the duration of a night’s rest — sleep is getting shorter and shorter, because so many things still need to be done, and there is not enough time for everything. But such experiments on oneself do not lead to good. Not only does a person feel tired and overwhelmed before he has to get out of bed, but he can hardly bring himself to do so. Healthyinfo will tell you about ways to wake up kindly and cheerfully.
Prepare the sleigh in the summer, and a vigorous awakening from sleep in the evening
As everything in the Universe is subject to a certain rhythm and cycle, so a person, whether he wants it or not, exists in a certain biorhythm. The ideal solution would be to create a clear regimen for yourself, going to bed at the same time, then you will wake up at the same hours, moreover, easily and effortlessly. What time to go to bed — everyone decides this question for himself, because not everyone has the opportunity to work during the day, but today scientists have already proven that the ideal option would be to go to bed at 21.30, so that at 22.00 o’clock already plunge into the kingdom of Morpheus.
One hour of sleep before 12 midnight is equal to two hours after midnight. And those who decide to “get” the missing hours in the morning will have to be disappointed — they will not feel cheerful and full of energy after waking up. Like any living creature on the planet, a person is strongly attached to the change in the phases of the sun and moon, and the closer his life activity will coincide with these cyclical repetitions, the better.
What else would you like to do before bed?
You can prepare yourself for the next working day if you provide ideal conditions for sleep. Take a warm bath with lavender essential oil before going to bed, and a cup of tea or milk with honey can also help. Be sure to ventilate the room, and if it is not too cold outside, you can leave the window open or set the micro-ventilation mode. Try not to think about anything bad, not to remember the events of the day that caused you strong emotions.
Turn off sight, hearing, touch and other senses, and if you find it difficult to do this, take the advice of the famous author of books on popular psychology Louise Hay. In particular, she suggests imagining yourself as a quiet, deep pond surrounded by green grass and tall, silent trees. If you can switch in this way and keep the peace of your inner world, then you will soon and imperceptibly fall asleep.
Killer alarm clock, or how to stay alive after sleep
Surely everyone remembers these Soviet alarm clocks, which could wake the dead from bed. In the course of numerous studies, it has been proven that such a quick and abrupt awakening negatively affects the human nervous system, because he is forced to stress himself daily due to a loud and sharp call. If you like energetic dance tunes, you can easily set them as your alarm ringtone, but let the volume of the sound increase incrementally.
In our age of digital technology, you can afford a more advanced device that not only does not scare you with a loud call, but also determines when it’s time to wake up. We are talking about a special wrist watch — Sleeptracker, which should be put on your hand before going to bed. They determine the phases of sleep by the movements of their owner and choose the moment when it will be easiest for him to wake up. An excellent effect is provided by an application specially installed on the phone, which will not turn off the alarm until you complete a couple of examples from mathematics, solve a riddle or pass a simple test. Agree, after such a forced work of the brain in the morning, there will be no trace of the remnants of sleep.
Get on the charger! Or is it not necessary at all?
You can talk a lot about the benefits of morning exercises after sleep, but we immediately forget about it when the body refuses to rise after morning awakening, and a warm bed and soft pillows beckon to lie down for another minute or two. Of course, not everyone can find the strength to leave a cozy nest in order to warm up and cheer up, but this will not have to be done. There are exercises that you can do right in bed. Here is some of them:
throw straight arms behind your head, and straighten your legs and stretch well, feeling how all the muscles and spine are stretched;
to develop the shoulder muscles and muscles of the arms after sleep, roll over to the right side and grab the left hand with the right hand by the forearm. The first must be pulled back, causing resistance. Repeat several times and change the position of the body by performing the same number of repetitions on the other side;
in the supine position, spread your arms to the sides, and bend your legs at the knees. On the count of times, slowly lower them to one side, fix for a couple of seconds and return to the IP. Now lower to the other side. Repeat 5 times for each side;
pull your knees to your chest or do this exercise in turn for each leg.
Bright morning light is the basis of awakening
In the warm season, it is easy to provide morning lighting for the bedroom, just move the curtains, but in winter this is not possible, because it often starts to get light later than the moment when we leave the walls of the house to go to work. In order for your quality and pleasant sleep to end with the same awakening, you can use the help of all the same newfangled gadgets — dawn simulators. By setting the device at the right time, you will wake up not only with the dawn, but also with birdsong and other suitable accompaniment, because many devices support such functions.
Alternatively, you can install automatic blinds in your home and control them with a remote control without getting out of bed. At the touch of a button before going to bed, you will plunge into the alluring darkness, and fall asleep faster and easier, and in the morning ensure a painless awakening by choosing the blinds up mode. Simple and convenient.
