(MUST READ!) 10 things you shouldn't do before going to bed

Published

on

1. EXERCISE
No, you don’t get to ditch your yoga mat or running shoes all together.
Exercise is a vital activity for your health, and can actually
contribute to getting better-quality sleep. The problem, though, is that
exercising within three hours of bedtime can raise your body
temperature, and make dozing off more difficult. Breaking a sweat,
then, is best left for earlier in the day!
2. Watch TV/Surf the Web
Studies have shown that pre-slumber screen time can impede your
body’s ability to fall asleep. The likely culprit? Well, the bright lights
of these screens can hinder the development of melatonin, the hormone
that promotes sleep. So close that laptop and turn off that TV about
an hour before bed.

3. Take a Hot Shower/Bath
Like exercise, hot showers and baths can actually help you fall asleep.
The problem, however, comes out of taking one too close to the time
you plan on hitting the sack. Being overheated or sweating can make
it difficult to sleep. Let your body cool down before heading off to bed.

4. Drink Too Many Fluids
Caffeine, of course, and alcohol both make it difficult to get a good
night’s rest. But drinking a lot of any liquid within the last hour or
two before you go to bed will lead to those dreaded late night bathroom
breaks, and further disrupt your slumber. You shouldn’t go to bed
thirsty, however, as you’ll likely wake up in the middle of the night to
get a drink of water. Balance is key here.
5. DON’T SLEEP WITH WATCH
Watches can emit a certain level of radioactivity. Though small, but
if you wear your watch to bed for a long time, it might have
adverse effects on your health.
6.DON’T SLEEP WITH BRA
Scientists in America have discovered those that wear bras for
more than 12 hours have a higher risk of getting bosom cancer. So go
to bed without it.
7.DON’T SLEEP WITH PHONE
Putting the phone beside your bed or anywhere near you is not
encouraged.
Though some of us will use phones as alarm clocks, but please put
the phone as far as possible. Scientists have proved that electrical
items including mobile phone and television sets emit magnetic waves
when used. These waves can cause disruptions to our nervous
system. Therefore if you need to put your mobile phone near you,
switch it off first.
8.DON’T SLEEP WITH THOUGHT OF TOMORROW
This will make you worry for long
9.DON’T SLEEP WITH MAKE UP
People who sleep with make up might have skin problems in the long
run.
Sleeping with make up will cause the skin to have difficulty in
breathing and problem in perspiring. You will also need a much
longer time to go into deep sleep.
10. DON’T SLEEP WITH OTHERS’ WIFE/HUSBAND
You may never wake up again.
