Tips To Manage Anxiety!

Tips To Manage Anxiety!

Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The best way to deal with it to accept that it is only a temporary phase which everyone faces. If you keep worrying and try to fight it, you will become even more anxious and your health will become even worse.

It is therefore important that you acknowledge it, first of all and try to cope with it. Controlling anxiety isn't a gigantic task. You can feel at ease with by doing these simple things:

  1. Self-soothing techniques: There are many physiological things for you to do as well which will allow you to relieve anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a very good way to achieve this. Sometimes reassuring yourself is more valuable than you think. Practice saying comforting things to yourself and the stress and anxiety will automatically reduce. Muscle relaxation is yet another method which will allow you to decrease your anxiety.
  2. Deep breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth.
  3. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  4. Get adequate sleep: Everyone feels bad when they do not sleep enough. However, did you know that lack of sleep is a major cause of anxiety. The more you sleep, the less anxious you will feel.
  5. Exercise regularly: You probably know that exercise is very important for maintaining good health. However, what you probably do not know is that exercise is perhaps more effective than even medication in relieving your anxiety. Therefore, it is imperative for you to get moving.
  6. Monitor your diet: Your diet is crucial in reducing your anxiety as caffeine and alcohol are two of the leading causes of anxiety in your body. However, abruptly stopping your intake of caffeine and alcohol also leads to withdrawal symptoms. Therefore balancing out intake of alcohol and caffeine is crucial. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

As a manager or employee, you often have to multitask and manage or work on multiple projects each day. Some projects are short and take just a few hours or days to complete, while others can take months or even years to complete. Managing multiple projects and deadlines at work can be stressful, so it is important to take the time to organize your work and schedule. Prepare your workspace: Organize your desk. Put everything you use daily within close reach. Get rid of those unused stacks of correspondence, brochures and lists that you keep around because you" might need them some day. Prioritize your tasks. This requires coordination with bosses, coworkers and subordinates. Decide what tasks are really important to you, your boss, your team members and your organization. Do them first. Are these tasks that really don't need to be done at all? Get rid of them. Insist on a clear deadline for each task you take on. Plan your work and your time. Poor or nonexistent planning is the greatest cause of missed deadlines and delays. For all but the simplest tasks, develop a work plan before you start. Divide large projects into manageable chunks. Organize your tasks into a logical sequence. Plan your time. If you do your best brain work between 10 a. M. And noon, schedule your hardest task for that time slot. Persevere to complete each task. Once you start a task, stick with it to completion. Don't flit around from task to task. Even if you feel pressured because other important tasks are pending, don't let that pressure distract you. You'll accomplish more in the long run if you take one thing at a time. Push away distractions. During the next work week, pay attention to your major distracters. Do you spend too much time on the phone? Do too many people stop by your desk during a day? Are you" putting out the welcome mat" for people to just stop by and chat? Do you go through your correspondence two or three times before deciding what to do with it? Do you check your e-mail 20 times a day? Analyze those things that are keeping you from accomplishing your tasks, then work to minimize them. Handle correspondence and e-mail just once or twice a day. Working in a matrix organization with multiple bosses can create major challenges: •Work overload. A common refrain in workplaces around the globe is, “I have too much work to do.” Things can be even worse when you have multiple managers on different projects. Each boss may treat you as if you only work for him or her. •Competing demands. Having several bosses can mean competing demands on your time. Whose project gets first priority—especially when every boss believes his or her project should be number one? •Conflicting messages. The more managers you have, the more opportunity there is for conflicting messages. Different bosses have different expectations and methods of communicating, and can unintentionally send conflicting messages. What can you do to manage these challenges? I suggest these four strategies: 1. Be Clear Who Your “Real” Boss Is It’s important to know who your real boss is. Which person do you formally report to? Who does your final performance review? Who makes decisions regarding your compensation? Even in a heavily matrixed environment, just one manager is typically responsible for these tasks. Make sure you are having regular one-on-one meetings at least once a month with your real boss. Use this formal leader as a mentor or coach in dealing with your other managers. 2. Be Open About Your Workload Your bosses don’t know what’s on your plate unless you tell them. Be open about your workload. Share your calendar with all of your managers so they know your schedule. Create a shared document that updates them on each of the projects you’re working on so they see your progress and have a better understanding of your workload. Have quick weekly check-in meetings to stay connected and address any concerns. 3. Set Clear Boundaries on Your Time Constant interruptions are a major time waster. It’s difficult to focus on your projects if your bosses keep coming by to ask questions or make additional requests. Encourage them to use email or text for questions and requests. Block off specific time on your calendar to work on projects. Let your managers know this is sacred time and you should not be interrupted unless it is an emergency. 4. Set Clear Standards for Communication Get your bosses together to develop one set of standards for communication. Do you prefer to get requests through email, text, Outlook tasks, face-to-face, or some other way? What is the expectation for timely response to an email or text—for you and for them? How often will you meet one-on-one? How are you going to report project status? If possible, come up with one way that works for all of your managers so you don’t have to deal with different expectations for communication. Taking Steps to Manage Stress •Track your stressors. Keep a journal for a week or two to identify which situations create the most stress and how you respond to them. Record your thoughts, feelings and information about the environment, including the people and circumstances involved, the physical setting and how you reacted. Did you raise your voice? Get a snack from the vending machine? Go for a walk? Taking notes can help you find patterns among your stressors and your reactions to them. •Develop healthy responses. Instead of attempting to fight stress with fast food or alcohol, do your best to make healthy choices when you feel the tension rise. Exercise is a great stress-buster. Yoga can be an excellent choice, but any form of physical activity is beneficial. Also make time for hobbies and favorite activities. Whether it's reading a novel, going to concerts or playing games with your family, make sure to set aside time for the things that bring you pleasure. Getting enough good-quality sleep is also important for effective stress management. Build healthy sleep habits by limiting your caffeine intake late in the day and minimizing stimulating activities, such as computer and television use, at night. •Establish boundaries. In today's digital world, it's easy to feel pressure to be available 24 hours a day. Establish some work-life boundaries for yourself. That might mean making a rule not to check email from home in the evening, or not answering the phone during dinner. Although people have different preferences when it comes to how much they blend their work and home life, creating some clear boundaries between these realms can reduce the potential for work-life conflict and the stress that goes with it. •Take time to recharge. To avoid the negative effects of chronic stress and burnout, we need time to replenish and return to our pre-stress level of functioning. This recovery process requires “switching off” from work by having periods of time when you are neither engaging in work-related activities, nor thinking about work. That's why it's critical that you disconnect from time to time, in a way that fits your needs and preferences. Don't let your vacation days go to waste. When possible, take time off to relax and unwind, so you come back to work feeling reinvigorated and ready to perform at your best. When you're not able to take time off, get a quick boost by turning off your smartphone and focusing your attention on non-work activities for a while. •Learn how to relax. Techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises and mindfulness (a state in which you actively observe present experiences and thoughts without judging them) can help melt away stress. Start by taking a few minutes each day to focus on a simple activity like breathing, walking or enjoying a meal. The skill of being able to focus purposefully on a single activity without distraction will get stronger with practice and you'll find that you can apply it to many different aspects of your life. •Talk to your supervisor. Healthy employees are typically more productive, so your boss has an incentive to create a work environment that promotes employee well-being. Start by having an open conversation with your supervisor. The purpose of this isn't to lay out a list of complaints, but rather to come up with an effective plan for managing the stressors you've identified, so you can perform at your best on the job. While some parts of the plan may be designed to help you improve your skills in areas such as time management, other elements might include identifying employer-sponsored wellness resources you can tap into, clarifying what's expected of you, getting necessary resources or support from colleagues, enriching your job to include more challenging or meaningful tasks, or making changes to your physical workspace to make it more comfortable and reduce strain. •Get some support. Accepting help from trusted friends and family members can improve your ability to manage stress. Your employer may also have stress management resources available through an employee assistance program (EAP), including online information, available counseling and referral to mental health professionals, if needed. If you continue to feel overwhelmed by work stress, you may want to talk to a psychologist, who can help you better manage stress and change unhealthy behavior. Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further. Regards,

Am a 28 year old. Since 5 year am a chain smoker. Now am too weak. I wanna improve my health and I want to stop my smoking habit.

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology

Obviously, anyone who smokes should try to quit, regardless of caste, creed, age, gender or social status. Many of my patients who are smokers have a particularly difficult time kicking the habit. I suspect this is related to dopamine imbalance. Smoking releases a chemical response that mimics pleasure. By keeping your stress level in check, you will have an easier overcoming this habit. Here are some additional suggestions suited to you. • Keep a journal to record your progress on a stop-smoking program. Record the benefit you experience from not smoking. • Exercise vigorously to cut down on cravings. • Avoid situations that normally trigger the desire to smoke. Be especially wary of situations that cause anger, boredom, or depression. • When you have the urge to smoke, perform this deep breathing exercise: 1. Inhale deeply through your nose. 2. Slowly exhale through your mouth. 3. Repeat 4 to 6 times. • Swallow Indian "Shyam Tulsi" . Never chew it, Tulsi has a lot of Mercury in it. Thus, you can rather swallow Tulsi leaves rather than chewing it and hurting your teeth. Moreover, you can also use the juiced form of the Tulsi leaves as a herbal medicine. Precisely speaking, when you apply raw Mercury on your teeth, your teeth will start falling immediately. Tulsi reduces the craving for smoking.

How To Quit Smoking in hindi - धूम्रपान कैसे छोड़े?

इतिहास गवाह है कि नशा जिस भी चीज़ का हो बर्बादी के दरवाजे पर लाकर खड़ा करदेता है। नशा शब्द ही नकारात्मक भावों से भर देता है। आज के समय जितने भी तरह के नशे की समस्या है उनमें सबसे भयावह रूप में सुरसा की तरह मुंह फैलाए बढ़ती जा रही है धूम्रपान का नशा। कहने को आसान है कि स्मोक करते हैं परइसके अंजाम से शायद हम खुदको समय के पहले जोड़ नहीं पाते। खैर आज हम जानेंगे इसके भयंकर परिणाम से बचनेके उपाय यानी इससे बचने के नुस्खे लेकिन उससे पहले हम जानते है कि लोग सिगरेट पीना क्यों  शुरू करते हैं।

ज्या दा तर युवा सिगरेट शौक में आकर पीना शुरू करते हैं। मौज-मस्ती् के लिये, फिर आगे चलकर वही मौज-मस्तीश लत बन जाती है।
कई लोग सिगरेट अन्ये लोगों से प्रेरित होकर पीना शुरू करते हैं।
कई ऐसे लोग ऐसे हैं, जिनके मन में गलत फहमी होती है कि सिगरेट स्मो‍किंग से टेंशन कम होता है।
स्मोकिंग का कड़वा सच यही है कि सिगरेट से होने वाला कैंसर लोगों को मौत के सिवा कुछ नहीं दे रहा है। 
थोड़ी सी सलाह के तौर पर आपसे गुज़ारिश है कि स्मोक करने के पहले अपने आपसे आप कुछ सवाल पूछें। 

यदि आप छात्र हैं तो खुद से पूछें- 

  • क्याआ मैं अपने माता-पिता की कमाई से मौत खरीद रहा हूं?
  • यदि आप नौकरी करते हैं, 
  • बैचलर हैं- क्या  मैं इसी के लिये कमा रहा हूं?
  • यदि आप एक पति हैं- 
  • यदि मैं जल्दी  मर गया, तो क्याइ मेरी पत्नीा मेरे बगैर रह सकेगी?
  • यदि आप पिता हैं-
  • तो सवाल करें, इस सिगरेट के बदले मैं अपने बच्चोंत के लिये क्या  खरीद सकता हूं?

एक रिसर्च के अनुसार एक शख्स दिन में लगभग 8.2 सिगरेट पी जाता है। सिगरेट की खतरनाक लत इस तनावभरी जिंदगी में ना छुटने वाली एक आदत है। धूम्रपान की लत से कैसे मुक्त हों। इसके लिए पहले आपका पक्का इरादा जरूरी है। यह आदत छोड़ने में कई दिक्कतें आयेंगी और व्यक्ति को अपने दिनचर्या बदलना होगा, खान-पान, शायद कुछ पुराने साथियों से भी दूरी बनानी जाए सिगरेट की तलब बार-बार उठेगी, और शारीरिक और मानसिक तकलीफ भी होगी।इतनी परेशानियां आएंगी की अगर आपने दिल से ना तय किया हो तो इसे छोड़ना मुश्किल होगा। लेकिन भले ही इसे छोड़ना बहुत ही मुश्किल काम है लेकिन नामुमकिन नहीं। एक दिन में इसे नहीं छोड़ा जा सकता पर सच्चे दिल से चाहने और कुछ कोशिशें करने पर अहिस्ता अहिस्ता खुद ब खुद यह आदत छूट जाएगी। 
तो आज हम जानेंगे धूम्रपान छोड़ने के कुछ आसान पर असरदार घरेलू उपाय जो आपके क्विट स्मोकिंग मोमेंट में मदद करेंगे। 

1. ओट्स 
भरपूर ओट्स खाएं। ओट्स शरीर से घातक विषैले पदार्थों को बाहर निकालता है और स्मोकिंग की चाहत को कम कर देता है।

2. पानी 
पानी भी शरीर से विषाक्त पदार्थों को बाहर निकालने में मदद करता है। भोजन करने से 15 मिनट पहले एक गिलास पानी पीएं, इससे मैटाबॉलिक रेट काबू में रहें। इसके अलावा दिनभर थोड़ा थोड़ा पानी जरूर पीते रहे। पानी हर चीज में मदद करने के साथ ही स्मोकिंग छोड़ने में भी लाभपहुचाएगा।

3. अंगूर के बीज का अर्क
यह क्षारीय प्रकृतिक का होता है, जो कि रक्तए में एसिडिटी को कम करता है और फेफड़ों तथा शरीर को स्मो किंग से जो नुकसान हुआ है, उससे बचाता है।

4. शहद 
शहद यानी हनी में विटामिन्सो, एंजाइम और प्रोटीन होता है जो कि आराम से स्मोेकिंग की आदत को छुड़वाने में मदद करेगा। हमेशा शुद्ध शहद का ही इस्तेनल करें जिससे बेहतर रिजल्ट मिले।

5. मूली 
घिसी मूली खाने से उन लोगों को लाभ मिल सकता है, जो चेन स्मोदकर्स या फिर बुरी लत से पीडित हैं। इसका अच्छाक रिजल्टर पाने के लिए इसे शहद के साथ खाएं। तब देखें मूली का कमाल।

6. मुलेठी
जब भी स्मोतकिंग का मन करें तो आप मुलेठी की दातून लेकर उसे चबा सकते हैं, आपकी स्मो किंग की इच्छाक कम हो जाएगी। इससे आपका पेट भी ठीक रहेगा।

7. लाल मिर्च
लाल मिर्च श्वसन प्रणाली को मजबूत बनाने का काम करती है। यह स्मोइकिंग की चाहत को भी खत्म करती है। इस मसाले को अपने खाने में प्रयोग करने के साथ ही 1 गिलास पानी में चुटकी भर भी प्रयोग कर सकते हैं। आपको इससे तुरंत राहत मिल जाएगी और यह लंबे समय तक काम करेगा।

8. जिनसेंग 
यह एक शक्तिशाली हर्ब है, जो शरीर में ऊर्जा का स्तर बढ़ा देता है। जब आप स्मोकिंग छोड़ रहे होते हैं, तो आपका शरीर तनाव और आलस्य की चपेट में आ जाता है। जिनसेंग इन सबसे निपटने में मदद करता है।

तो इन नुस्खों को अपने रूटीन में शामिल करने के लिए पहले प्लैन बनाएँ। क्योंकि यह सिलसिला पक्के इरादे से शुरू होता है, पर साथ साथ पूरी जानकारी प्राप्त करके एक योजना बनानी होती। जिसे क्विट स्मोकिंग प्लैन–Quit Smoking Plan– भी कहते हैं।
तो अब आप जल्द ही कह दें स्मोकिंग को अलविदा।

1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, its true that Caregiving for someone with schizophrenia is a huge job, tiring and frustrating at times. Current and former partners of people with schizophrenia seem to agree that the following two criteria can make or break a relationship: The ill partner must accept treatment. Untreated schizophrenia can make people behave erratically. The other partner may become subject to verbal abuse, emotional neglect, and delusional accusations. No healthy relationship can sustain this. The well partner must create a support system. Schizophrenia affects your partner's ability to meet your emotional needs, so you will need your own support system outside the relationship. Caregivers tend to suffer from depression, so it's important to have access to mental health support, like a counselor or therapist. Friends and family can provide a listening ear, a much-needed distraction, and a sense of normalcy. Both partners must communicate. Open and clear communication will help the partner with schizophrenia get the support he or she needs as well as understand what’s expected of him or her in the relationship. In addition to individual therapy, marital therapy can help both partners cope with the effects schizophrenia has on the relationship. You can take marital counseling the ultimate decision lies with you. Make a sound decision. There are lot of factors to consider. You can discus and consult with me for same. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it. Consult for psychotherapy for anxiety.

Stammering can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear Sain Langthasa, Thanks for the question. I can understand. You are YOU. Whatever your behavior today, whatever your body language today are learned from your past experiences and social interactions. Whatever you have learned can be unlearned or over written. This is a continuous process happening throughout your life. I suggest cognitive behavior therapy for you. Take care.

Sleep issues. The brain keeps thinking a lot. Stress issues too. What should I do?
Think about all the factors that can interfere with a good night's sleep ? from pressure at work and family responsibilities to unexpected challenges, such as layoffs, relationship issues or illnesses. It's no wonder that quality sleep is sometimes elusive. Although you might not be able to control all of the factors that interfere with your sleep, you can adopt habits that encourage better sleep. Start with these simple sleep tips. 1. Stick to a sleep schedule Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends, holidays and days off. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle and helps promote better sleep at night. There's a caveat, though. If you don't fall asleep within about 15 minutes, get up and do something relaxing. Go back to bed when you're tired. If you agonize over falling asleep, you might find it even tougher to nod off. 2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink Don't go to bed either hungry or stuffed. Your discomfort might keep you up. Also limit how much you drink before bed, to prevent disruptive middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on quality sleep. And even though alcohol might make you feel sleepy at first, it can disrupt sleep later in the night. 3. Create a bedtime ritual Do the same things each night to tell your body it's time to wind down. This might include taking a warm bath or shower, reading a book, or listening to soothing music ? preferably with the lights dimmed. Relaxing activities can promote better sleep by easing the transition between wakefulness and drowsiness. Be wary of using the TV or other electronic devices as part of your bedtime ritual. Some research suggests that screen time or other media use before bedtime interferes with sleep. 4. Get comfortable Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs. Your mattress and pillow can contribute to better sleep, too. Since the features of good bedding are subjective, choose what feels most comfortable to you. If you share your bed, make sure there's enough room for two. If you have children or pets, try to set limits on how often they sleep with you ? or insist on separate sleeping quarters.
