This article will discuss what a good bedtime routine for adults in a relationship is. It’s also about the time you will be asleep.
You may not want to tell your partner this part. Why?
They might feel that they need you more. Do you know how you can get people’s feeling-sensitive days?
Tell them they need more love and attention. That’s what this is about. It is a red flag for them.
So, let us see what these good and bad habits people need to learn to develop a good bedtime routine.
1. Working more than 6 hours per day
What we do before sleep or after sleep influences the quality of our sleep. The most important thing you can do before sleep is to stop working.
The nature of your job can affect your quality of sleep. On the other hand, some occupations have extremely long working hours.
These are ones you shouldn’t involve in. If your boss asks you to work for long hours, it might be a sign that it is time to quit.
2. Being attached to the tv, computer, tablets, or phone before bed
It is important to remember that people need peace to get enough sleep. Many of us are addicted to certain things before bed, like listening to the radio or a storybook.
It is important to remember that such things put pressure on your brain and weaken your sleep quality.
You need to remove them from your home; else, your mind will take over your body.
3. Sleeping while we’re exhausted
After a hard day’s work, your brain tends to get exhausted and numb. So, it would help if you did not go to bed with your brain ‘buzzing’ and your eyes being open.
If your mind feels relaxed and your body is fresh, you will get deep sleep.
So, you need to go to bed with your mind clean and your body ‘refreshed.’
4. Going to bed when we are hungry
Are you someone who will go to bed right after a hearty meal? What you do after that is essential.
Eating before you go to sleep will give you a heavy and hungry feeling.
The best thing you can do is go to bed and digest your food because eating gives you food stress. You might feel angrier and stressed as you try to finish the food.
5. Watching too much cable tv or watching too many movies
Exposure to television before bed can lead to sleep disruption. This can take a long time to get rid of.
You need to watch a film only when you want to relax and have a good time. It does not matter if it is a 10-hour long movie or a 2-hour long film.
Watching a long movie will make you tired and sleepy.
6. Taking a lot of phosphatidylcholine (pc) and l-theanine (la)
We often take a tablet to get a good sleep. And usually, there is a perfect combination of supplements that give us a good night’s sleep.
But, there are also supplements that you need to avoid to get a good night’s sleep. For instance, taking too many L-theanine and PC can put you at risk of insomnia.
You will not sleep properly because of the anxiety you are feeling.
So, it is best to take them in the proper amount and at the right time.
7. Being indulgent with food before bed
When you are stressed or tense, you tend to crave a meal as if it is therapy.
This can make your sleep quality terrible, as you wake up in the middle of the night to have a food binge.
8. Using alcohol or tobacco before bed
This is something that can wreck your entire night’s sleep.
On the other hand, there is also no real proof that alcohol and tobacco affect sleep quality.
But, some studies claim that it could make your sleep quality worse. If you want to stay calm and sleepy, avoid alcohol and tobacco before bed.
Starting from scratch
Now, you’re probably going to say to yourself: “What if I don’t like this routine? I want to eat, or play video games, or whatever it is that I do.” That’s fine.
You don’t have to do that every night. You must have fun now and then take a break from your routine.
Maybe you think that you won’t be able to fit in exercise every day. Maybe you think that there’s no way you’ll wake up early and eat the same thing every day.
That’s all fine. You don’t have to do it every night or even every week.
Some weeks you won’t even need to do anything. Some weeks you can go and play video games or go and eat some pizza.
But, if you do it for a few weeks, you’ll probably enjoy it. It will help to break up the monotony of your day.
If you don’t like to exercise, don’t force yourself to do it every day. But, if you do enjoy it, don’t stop it. It’s important to mix things up sometimes.
The most important thing to remember is that you should stick to your schedule as much as possible. This might seem simple, but for many people, it isn’t easy to be consistent.
It takes a lot of discipline to stick with it. But if you put in the effort and get into the routine, you’ll be amazed at how great it feels actually to see the results.
The hidden cost of sleep
It is good to know the consequences of not getting enough sleep. But, there are hidden costs of not sleeping enough that we often overlook.
These things can have a major effect on your health and well-being. So, it is always a good idea to get a good night’s sleep every night.
