How to get back to normal sleeping regime?

Sleep is the most effective remedy for stress, wrinkles and generally your overall health. When our body releases the “sleep hormone” melatonin, body temperature decreases and we become less focused. Then we fall asleep. Daylight does not allow the body produce melatonin so if we travel through different time zones, work or go out at night, we disrupt the rhythm of sleep and we cannot sleep neither during day nor during night. Here are some tips that will help you to recover normal rhythm of sleep.

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to make sure that your body gets all vitamins and minerals. Food that is difficult to digest as well as fast food, disrupts hormonal balance and increases sugar level in blood. This way, production of melatonin is disrupted and we cannot fall asleep quickly and sleep well. Eat 3 hours before going to bed. Clock of our body is very accurate, it remembers the time of breakfast and it can wake you up earlier than you expected.

Practice yoga, breathing exercises and meditation. This helps to overcome stress and improves quality of sleep. People who practice yoga relax much better.

Sleep at least 7-8 hours. You can add 1-2 additional hours during weekends. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time. This way your body will learn to wake up without alarm clock.

Sleep in a dark and quite room. Darkness stimulates production of melatonin. If possible leave a small space between your curtains so morning sun would illuminate you in the morning. This way you will wake up naturally.
