Dr. M. Safwan Badr, M.D., president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine adds: ''For me a bed's two chief functions have terms with letter S inserted at the start, and I believe the words 'struggling' and 'suffering' have no place in that set-up''
A similar kind of idea is echoed in the wordings of Lauren Conard: ''I relate bed with plainly two words sleepcoupled with 'sex'.'' In an interview with Allure magazine Lauren said that she was doing her best not to sit in a bed to do work.
1. TEXT : Using a mobile to check emails, scrolling Instagram for photos is not a healthy habit. Studies point-out that blue light that these devices emit disrupt sleep leading to you feeling groggy when you get-up in the morning.
2. WATCH TV : A disrupted mealtonin production is the likely outcome of having a TV in the bedroom. ''Relaxation has got nothing to do with distraction whatsoever,'' says Michael A. Grandner, Ph.D., an instructor of psychiatry and a member of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine program at the University of Pennsylvania. A action-packed movie hamper rather than lull you to sleep.
3. TOSS AND TURN : My idea of 'stimulation' for a deep slumber is to jump out of the bed, find some work to do, like ironing and arranging clothes and getting tired so that you feel like sleeping. Tossing and turning makes matters worse.
4. WORK : Don't fall into the trap of thinking that bed has multiple-uses. No! Work is done better out of bed, and not in the bed. Stick to that rule and your sleep will get better and better with time. Harvard's Division of Sleep Medicine point out in this way: ''When you take your work to your bed you make the mental link between a bed and sleep feeble.''
5. SWEAT : Don't presume that optimizing the room temperature making it extra cozy will give you the best sleep in the world. You are mistaken if you think like that. The ideal settings is anything that lie in the range of 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. If your thermostat's settings is accurate and you are sweating like a pig, then do yourself a favor; draw out two separate sheets to make up the bed so you manage the climate of the room while letting your chillier bed-mate enjoy an interruption-free sleep.
6. SNOOZE : Pushing the SNOOZE button will not get you what you are asking. Making things work fine is in your hands – instead of using a snooze set your alarm clock for a time a little late than normal.
