HOW TO GET THE SLEEP YOU NEED FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE  

Although it may be tempting to stay up late at night and ruin your sleep habits, it’s crucial that we all have a regular routine and are sleeping during the dark hours and are awake during the day because that’s how our bodies function the best. You shouldn’t be spending all morning in bed. All of us need to sleep. People who don’t get enough good sleep are more likely to experience behavioural issues, and health issues. 

You’ve probably heard of several excellent sleep routines by this point, such as setting your phone aside and turning over in bed (literally). Beyond establishing these healthy sleeping practises, it is still true that you sleep similarly to how you eat. When it comes to positioning yourself for success in bed — getting deep, reviving sleep — what’s on your plate really counts. Picking the ideal bedtime snack, nightcap, or even humidity in your bedroom might help you get a better night’s sleep and maintain your health. For the restful sleep you deserve, incorporate these revitalising sleep habits into your nightly routine.

Which side is more preferable for sleeping? Left or right,  Most people find that sleeping on their left side is the most comfortable position. Ayurveda, India’s 5,000-year-old Science of Life, is where the wisdom first originated, despite the fact that it may be news today. The body’s left and right sides are extremely dissimilar from one another. The lymphatic system, for instance, is more prominent on the left side of the body. This is so because the thoracic duct, from whence the majority of the body’s lymphatic fluid emerges, drains onto the left side of the heart, the left jugular vein, and the left subclavian vein. It follows that sleeping on one’s left side is advantageous for the lymphatic drainage system. Our first line of defence is the lymphatic system.Sleeping on the left side is also good for the heart. The aorta is the largest artery in the body. The aorta leaves the apex of the heart, makes a left-facing arch, and then descends to the abdomen. It is simpler for the heart to pump blood into the descending aorta when we sleep on our left side.

It is recommended to refrain from any, but especially after midday.Having a calming routine like meditating before bed also helps wonders.
