For immunity boost – sleep

Take care of your body and it will take care of you.

This is especially important at the present time. We undertake many activities to protect our health, but we often forget about one very important habit – sleep.

Of course, we all know how important and beneficial sleep is for our health, but do we implement this knowledge?

Numerous studies show that sleep helps maintain our immune system in good shape. If you do not get enough sleep during the night you are more prone to various types of infections and colds. So if you want to keep your immune system in a good shape, take care of the quality and duration of your sleep, especially now, in this stressful time for all of us.

This is not the only action that should be taken, because sleep alone will not prevent infection, but neglecting this element can significantly increase the likelihood of getting sick.

Sleep is important not only for our immunity but also for mental health. If you follow the latest news all the time, which is not that difficult nowadays, you are constantly in tension and anxiety. Sleep becomes a key factor here. Anxiety, worry and mental stress can make it difficult to fall asleep, and this in turn leads to sleep deficiencies, which in extreme cases can increase various types of disorders and anxiety. Vicious circle.

In order to have a good rest, it is important not only to sleep 7-8 hours, but also to take care of the quality of sleep. Whatever turns you on and keeps you awake at night, here are some tips that will help you reduce stress, sleep better, and improve your well-being.

Disconnect from the network 2 hours before bedtime.

Turn off your TV, phone, tablet, computer earlier. Thanks to that, your brain will be able to calm down, because it will not be stimulated by artificial light from monitors, which disturbs the natural cycle of our daily activity. Also, by not following all the media reports, you will go to bed less stressed.

Limit the consumption of alcohol and other stimulants.

Substances like alcohol, caffeine and nicotine have been shown to interfere with sleep quality, especially deep sleep, which the body needs to recharge.

Focus only on those things that are within your control, at least partially. Try to ignore the rest, so that they do not put you in a state of unnecessary anxiety. Especially now. Take care of what is important – sleep, healthy eating, exercise and positive thinking.

When lying in the bed, roll your tongue and press it against the palate, focus on your breathing – it will be easier to stop the racing of thoughts in your head and calm you down.

I’m not mentioning airing the bedroom and other things anymore, as we all know that.

Take care of yourself and incorporate good sleep habits into your daily routine. Your body will thank you by being more resistant and effective in coping with the stress in everyday life.
