Have you ever wondered why people love sleep so much? Well here are a couple of reasons why.
• Sleep is essential so there absolutely nothing wrong if you are one of those people who loves it. It is technically a way for our body to recharge especially at the end of the day. It also depends on what exactly you did the entire day, if you just chilled and did nothing, then you wouldn’t feel as tired.
• Sleep could also make you feel better especially if you haven’t been feeling very well. No matter what happened the entire day, whether it is something that totally stressed you out, something that made you feel lightheaded, something unexpected happened, sleep can always make you feel so much better because sleep basically recovers the mind and the body, even if the mind doesn’t sleep at all.
There are some people who though, who just happen to love sleep so much that it is actually starting to affect and interfere with their everyday lives. Insomnia or having a hard time sleeping is pretty common, but people who oversleep tend to have a similar problem, so to help you out, here are a couple of ways to stop yourself from oversleeping.
STOP OLD ROUTINE, START A NEW ONE
One of the reasons why you keep on oversleeping is because your body is used to it since it became part of your daily life, that is why it is now time to break that routine of yours and start a new one. Analyze what you normal do during the day because it normally affects how you sleep.
One of the things that could be the reason why you oversleep is that you’re used to taking late or long naps during the day. If taking a nap is necessary, then a 30-minute to 1-hour nap is the perfect length of time and make sure it is not later than 3 pm. If you tend to have a hard time waking up, ask someone to wake you up or set an alarm that would.
PLACE YOUR ALARM CLOCK FAR FROM YOU
Speak of alarm, people who oversleep are most likely to be heavy sleepers so if you are one yourself, it is highly recommended for you to place your alarm clock far from where you’re sleeping. The reason is so that you have to get up and turn it off yourself, if it’s beside you, you could simply press snooze ten times in a row, just make sure that it is in the loudest it could be so that you’ll be able to hear it. Most people set the sound of the alarm into the music they hate so that it will really wake them up and that they don’t like it is much that they feel the need to turn it off immediately. So if you hate listening to heavy metal, then set it to that type of music so that it would make you want to turn it off.
TURN OFF ELECTRONICS BEFORE BED
Did you know that the light of the screens of your electronic gadgets could actually stimulate the brain and it even suppresses the production of melatonin, which is the one that helps you sleep, and this could actually wake you up or simply interfere with your body clock?
AVOID SLEEP MEDICATIONS
Last but definitely not the least is that you should avoid taking sleeping pills if it is not prescribed by your doctor. These pills may help you fall asleep, but it can often lead to insomnia and other sleeping issues that could be worse. Sleeping pills must only be taken if you are traveling across the world where the time difference is big.
Remember that sleeping pills are not advisable to be taken every single day. If you are having a hard time sleeping a little early than usual, then stay up that night then wake up early, that way you may be tired the entire day but it could reset your sleeping pattern and it would definitely make you want to go to bed early.
