It is not always easy to fall asleep. There are times when it can become extremely complicated: the tensions of the day, stress, anxiety or worries can influence more or less decisively not only the quality of our sleep but also prevent us from falling asleep quickly, and take even hours in being able to fall asleep.
Not only the stress, anxiety, worries or nervous tensions of the day to day can directly influence our quality of sleep and the time it takes to fall asleep. Also what we do before going to bed, or even what we do in bed. For example, it is appropriate to read a little or listen to some relaxing music, but it is not advisable to watch television or use the computer because they are habits that stimulate us and do not help us to relax.
The time we have eaten, what foods we have eaten and what drinks we have consumed also influence. Obviously, it is advisable to avoid stimulant drinks and foods, such as coffee, tea or chocolate, and not to dine neither copiously nor excessively because then heavy or difficult digestion will have a very negative effect on our sleep quality.
On the contrary, there are basic guidelines that can be very useful: we can read our favorite book or a magazine, put on some relaxing music, light some candles and incense or before going to bed to have a relaxing bath.
But on the tips to follow to sleep quickly there are those who prefer to tell little sheep, listen to relaxing music or read. But there are also those who manage to fall asleep in just minutes, using some basic guidelines or tricks ...
