In case you’re not able to sleep adequately in the night and that is making your days worse, get away with these habits.
Late night conversations
Spending time prior to sleep talking to your partner might prove to be the biggest enemy of your sleep. Most times it cannot be helped when you’re unable to find quality time with each other during the day. Nevertheless, when conversations pick up excitement, both in a positive or negative manner, it might leave you sleepless. The conversations that end up in arguments, filling you with rage or fear, are certainly sleep killers. Thus, avoid long conversations at night. Find time during the day to resolve your troubles or discuss important matters.
Late night snacks
Well, you might find yourself craving for a little snack right before you sleep. No matter how tempting it may seem, late night snacks just act as sleep killers. Food releases acid in your stomach and, because, you’re lying on your bed you are predisposed to acid reflux. And, trust me… the acidity is going to keep you up for a while.
Very late exercises
No matter how good exercising might be, late night exercise is just going to stop you from having a smooth sleep. A quality sleep is associated with lower body temperatures according to sleep experts. Now, exercises raise your temperature and increase metabolic rate. Thus, it would be hard for the body to catch sound sleep. Find time to work out at least hours before your sleeping time.
Watching television excessively
The television set might be a part of your bedroom, but keeping it off when you’re trying to sleep would be a good thing practice to follow. Watching your favorite drama or thrillers is going to raise your adrenaline, make your heart beat faster and your brain more awake than needed. On top of that horror show or violence is going to give you nightmares.

Late night work
People who bring work home, or spend late at the office completing ‘just a little more’ work, tend to have troubled sleep. The thing is late night work causes anxiety and stress which acts as a precursor of insomnia besides poor appetite. Also, thinking about the work and next day’s anticipation gets your adrenaline levels high. Stress and adrenaline are surely sleep busters.
Instead of all the bad habits praying or meditating are better ways to walk you to a sound sleep.
