“Sleep is the best meditation.” Dalai Lama

“Your future depends on your dreams, so go to sleep.”   Mesut Barazany

Good sleep is necessary for physical and mental well being.

But lack of sleep is common in modern society.

Are you sleeping well, my friend?

March 19 is celebrated as ‘WORLD SLEEP DAY’

Wishing you all a pleasant sleep every day.

Getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every day is a must for your overall well being.

What is your sleep pattern, my friend?

Is it a sound sleep or disturbed sleep or deep sleep because of sedatives/tranquillizer/excess alcohol?

From the interactions I had with a few WP readers, I realised that some of them can respond/reply/comment mostly during past midnight ( people from my part of the Indian Subcontinent ).

I am not here for any judgment, since I know nothing of their schedule etc, but I wonder what is the mood like during that time, and how their next day is going to be and also the consequences on their health status in the long run.

Reduced sleep

This can be due to Disturbed sleep ( insomnia) or Lack of sleep ( Sleep deprivation).

1.Insomnia is a sleep disorder due to psychological or health problems and one has to consult a physician for the cure.

2.Lack of sleep is human making. You get a ready answer as to why one is not able to sleep enough.

Lack of sleep affects your immune system. ( I don’t want to go into medical /scientific details). If you want your immune system to work at its best…then get the needed amount of sleep every night Don’t give excuses of stress etc.

On the contrary, good sleep reduces your stress level!

Don’t depend on sedatives or tranquillizers!

Remember lack of sleep makes you depressed.

“Sometimes it is difficult to remember, but other times it is very easy to remember. Sleep deprivation is the killer”. Andy Samberg

Simple routines can help you a lot in the long run

  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol in the evening.
  • Regular exercises on daily basis- intensity depending upon your age
  • Avoid screen lighting from TV or Mobiles 2 hours before you go to bed (easier said than done).
  • Remember the good old saying ‘Early to bed & early to rise”

“There is more refreshment and stimulation in a nap, even of the briefest, than in all the alcohol ever distilled.” Edward Lucas
