Sleep Well
by Dr.Jayesh Thakkar Bookmark and Share

Sweet sleep everybody loves it, wants it, but then those who do not have it, only know how painful it is. Yearning for good sleep is not going to get you sleep, until you treat the cause of your insomnia. It may be mental, physical, and can be even due to wrong diet-regimen and conduct.

Ways to get good sound sleep
and get recharged positively -

Have a easy to digest light dinner atleast 90 minutes before your sleep time. Remember not to take coffee-tea or even too much of water after evening time. Rather drink sweet self-cooled milk. After dinner walk a little, listen to soft music and if needed do only light work. Avoid exposure to strong lights, as constant computer work or watching TV. Just, before going to the bed, go to toilet then have a light splash or at least wash off your hands-legs and face, gently rub them and wear light clothes. Get the bed ready with fresh clean bed-sheet, you can also get sweet fragrance or fresh flowers by your side, shut off the sounds, have only dim white light or none. And then finally sit on the bed calmly. Try out relaxing meditation; forget off the sorrows and stresses of life. Do forgive those who have hurt you. Get pleasant, recall your happy moments. Chant a prayer - “Om” or any of the positive energy and lie straight in bed, straightening your body and treating mind as if this is the last night with a new life to follow. Closen your eyes as the sleep kisses you.*
