Let’s Understand Sleep Better

Sleep is usually underrated by most of us but it has a great impact on the quality of our life. While we sleep, the brain gets rid of toxins like beta amyloid and activates a healthy sleep cycle for you to sleep at peace. Adults need at least 8 hours of sleep and any number less than that can indicate sleep deprivation.
So, is it only about the timing that influences sleep quality? Certainly not. Quality sleep is associated with sleep hygiene. Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you take sleeping pills before you sleep?
- Do you use mobile phones or light emitting devices before you hit the bed?
- Do you frequently take naps in the daytime?
- Do you work out before going to bed?
If your answer is YES to any of these questions, your sleep hygiene is poor and it’s a better idea to avoid them.
Long hours of sleeping in the daytime (or idiopathic hypersomnia) also indicates that your nervous system needs a repair and quality sleep is the only solution for it.

If you are feeling tired at your workplace, ask yourself if you are depressed about something. This depression unfortunately never lets your brain rest and you will feel dizzy throughout the day. This is one reason for the brain to stop working at odd times when it is over exhausted and you eventually feel sleep mentally!

It also indicates that you are in need of a sedative to reschedule your sleeping pattern.
To all the daytime tiredness symptoms that develop in your body, the solution is ‘have a peaceful sleep’.
