A to Z Challenge- People, Qualities or Things that inspired me – Z

For Letter Z, my choice is ZZZZZ

Yes, you’ve guessed it right my sleep.

So this might be cheating because sleep and sleeping starts with S but I feel to end this challenge, stressing on getting good quality and quantity of ZZZZZZZ is very important.

The day I get my 7 hours of beauty sleep, I feel so wonderful and energetic. My mood is elevated and I feel I can tackle any obstacle with panache!

Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night. A good night’s sleep helps us not only be active during the day but also is vital for maintaining good health and weight.

Lack of restful sleep results in lower immunity and we are prone to fall sick. It also effects our ability to handle stress of life.

A few helpful tips for a good night’s sleep;

• Avoid caffeine in the late evening and night time.

• Hydrate yourself well during the day.

• A light stroll or walk after dinner helps in going to sleep.

• Avoid screen time before bedtime, as it’s glare/ light can wake up or agitate the brain.

• Lie in bed only when sleeping, it helps condition the mind to recognize it as sleep time.

• If sleep is hard to come by, half a glass of warm milk or a banana can do the trick.

Hope these tips can help those struggling with sleep.

Sweet dream.

Thank you everyone for reading and commenting on my A to Z challenge. I enjoyed myself this year.

  1. Yes sleep is very important and it seems that my body is having trouble with that message. LOL! What happens as we get older, right! I remember my Mom getting up at night to make herself some hot milk. I don’t like milk though so doesn’t work for me! Just funny how roles reverse for now its my kids that find me up at 2am in the kitchen. LOL!

      1. Hi Sadje! Routines can be good. I don’t have trouble falling asleep its more staying asleep. Its waking up thinking you slept all night and then you look at the clock and only a hour has passed! 🙂

  2. A good way to end the A to Z. I’ve enjoyed your posts and learned some things I didn’t know before. I’m sure we could all use some extra zzz after this month long challenge. Great job! 🙂

  3. Ooh great tips. I don’t function very well on lack of sleep. Great tips, mine would be if you feel like a hot drink before bed try just having a hot water. I pour a cuppa of hot water and sip it whilst reading or watching telly. It feels exactly the same but is so much better for you. KL ❤

  4. Zzzz’s are important. Since I have been retired, sleep has been problematic. When I worked, I had a pretty regular schedule, but now I am not very disciplined, and I don’t get enough exercise.
    I enjoyed your A-to-Z posts.🐱

    1. Thank you so much Patricia. I appreciate your kind support. I have found out the more disciplined I am with my routine, the better I sleep.
