Sleep not enough for being well rested
Being fresh every day is something which is almost impossible to attain. Contrary to popular belief, being well rested has nothing to do with only sleeping more, there are many other ways to achieve this.
Huffingtonpost.com suggests eight constructive ways of waking up fresh daily:
-Don't sleep in: The most important thing about establishing a healthy sleep pattern is to wake up on time.
-Don't use electronics right before sleeping: Many people use their phones or laptops right before they sleep. These gadgets emit light that signals the brain that it is time to wake up.
-Nap strategically: A mid day snooze often helps in optimizing alertness, productivity and creativity.
-Engage in physical activity: Physical activity is very important, people who do this often sleep better.
-Think about sleep before sleeping: It is very important to prepare yourself for sleeping an hour or so before bed.
