5 Things You Should Not Do Once You’re In Bed

Published

Have you ever wondered about how much sleep you get in your entire lifetime? Well, assuming you will live for 80 years, you nearly sleep for 33 of those. Yes! It’s true. So, it’s safe to say that you spend a lot of time on the bed. And besides sleeping, you also spend a lot of time eating, chilling, and watching TV on it. If you come to think about it, the amount of time that you spend with your bed is probably much more than the time you spend anywhere else.

But did you know that there are certain things that you absolutely must not do when you’re on your bed?

Watching TV

Guilty as charged! We all love to watch TV when we’re on our bed but that habit is affecting our sleep quality. Even if you fall asleep watching TV, it does not guarantee a good night’s sleep. Deep sleep is very important for everyone, especially millennials who tend to juggle multiple tasks throughout the day.

Eating

Dining tables exist for a reason. In order to make sure the food you eat is digested well, you must be seated in the right position. Slouching or lying down might seem comfortable, but it is not the right way to eat. Plus, nobody likes spilling curry on their bed.

Psst… we do think that it’s okay to grab some snacks for midnight munching every now and then, but be sure you don’t drop anything! You don’t want to sleep with germs, right?

Working

Ever since we have started working from home, staying in our PJs and wanting to lay around in bed has become a way of life. However, if there’s one thing that no one should do is work from their bed. One, you won’t be productive and two, the posture is extremely bad for your neck and back. Always have a designated working spot with a desk and a chair that not only supports your back but also improves your productivity.

Checking your smartphone

Do you want a good night’s sleep? You need to stop looking at any kind of screen be it your laptop, your phone or tab as soon as you sit on your bed. The bright screen lights signal your brain to stay awake, making it even harder for you to sleep well.

Fighting with someone

You know what they say, you should never go to bed angry. It is not only good for your sleep patterns but also not a good habit in general. You want your bed to be your happy space, right? So, don’t fight with your partner, sibling or parent before you hit the hay–try to resolve your issues before you go to bed.
