    Sleep plays a key role in maintaining your overall health. Sleep is really helpful in balancing your body and relieving it of all the stress. An 8-hour sleep is usually recommended to everyone for a healthy living. However, all those who have sleeping disorders and are unable to sleep well get negatively affected. Inadequate sleep leads to problems in both mental and physical health. Here are some easy tips that will help you sleep better:

    Drink A Glass Of Milk

    You must have heard that it is great to have a glass of milk before you go off to sleep. Why? Well, milk is rich in tryptophan, which is known for inducing sleep. Drinking a glass of milk just before going to the bed helps you have a good sleep. 


    meditate for sleep

    We all know the benefits of meditating. Meditation helps a lot by giving you a good sound sleep. It relaxes your body and further induces sleep. It is also great for your overall health. Along with meditation, you can also practice Yoga which soothes your nervous system and calms down your body.

    Eat Healthy

    Your diet plays a key role in maintaining your health and it also affects your sleeping cycle majorly. If you are too much into spicy or junk food then you may face problems like constipation and indigestion. This can negatively affect your sleep. For a sound sleep, you need to have a good digestive system and thus make sure you avoid all unhealthy food items.

    Keep Your Electronics Away

    Today, we all are hooked to our phones and laptops. Before finally going off to sleep, we stay glued to the screens, scrolling feeds up and down. At least an hour before you wish to go to sleep, switch off all your electronic gadgets. This will help you get into your sleep mode and you will sleep quickly. 


    Head Massage 

    A good oil head massage works well for a good sleep. Oil massage soothes down your nervous system and this helps you have a great sleep. Massage your scalp lightly and let your mind relax for the night. You can also take some oil on your fingers and massage on your temples before sleeping if you don't wish to apply the oil all over your hair.
