Are you one of those individuals who lie awake thinking and worrying of daily matters even when you are exhausted as hell? Getting fixated about something and constantly worrying about it will disrupt your sleep and as a resultant the lack of sleep will make you snappy and cranky the next morning. Constant worrying can keep you up at night and make you tense and edgy during the day. There are several things you can do to combat this habit.
Keep all activities other than sleeping and resting out of the bedroom: Your aim is to train your brain to relate the bedroom with rest, sleep, and nothing else. You are not meant to do your office work, attend co-workers phone calls, play video games, read or work on your laptop in your bedroom. By training yourself to do so, every time you are in your bedroom your brain will automatically correlate it to the fact that it is time for you sleep!
Keep the bedroom clocks out of sight: Often when you are unable to sleep and have to wake up at a particular time, you keep staring at the clock restlessly, trying to figure out minute after minute, how much time you still have on your hands for sleeping. So to get rid of this habit, keep the clocks away from sight and just use the alarm instead.
