10 Dangerous & Unhealthy Bedtime Habits To Avoid At All Cost. - OPINION.

Insomnia can be caused by bad habits. Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which you have a hard time falling asleep and don't feel refreshed when you get up. Here's a list of things we should avoid doing before going to bed if we want to get a good night's sleep.

1. Don't go to bed right after dinner because your body won't allow you sleep until the digesting process is through. Before going to bed, you must stay for two hours.

2. Avoid drinking coffee for at least 4 to 5 hours before bedtime because caffeine stimulates your brain and keeps you awake.

3. If you're cold, don't sleep barefooted—always wear socks to keep your feet warm, as cold feet prevent you from sleeping.

4. Do not sleep at odd hours- Stick to a pattern and sleep at the same time every day so that your body becomes accustomed to it. Sleeping at any time of day will keep you awake at night.

5. Avoid exercising right before bedtime because it stimulates the body and keeps you awake for a long time. Always exercise at least three hours before going to bed.

6. Do not read books until you fall asleep- It is a bad habit to read a book until you fall asleep. Try to finish your reading one hour before bedtime.

7. Avoid sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress- A nice mattress will help you sleep better. Always get a nice mattress because it will benefit you in the long term.

8. Don't drink anything before bedtime-drinking liquids before bedtime will cause you to get up numerous times to pee, disrupting your sleep.

9. Avoid sleeping on your stomach; instead, lie on your left side or in any other comfortable position that promotes restful sleep.

10. Try to avoid using electronic devices before bedtime. The light from phones and laptops stimulates the brain, preventing you from sleeping well.
