3. Find your sleep position.
Do you feel limb stiffness, back or neck pains, or have a puffy face in the morning? It’s time to change your position.
Doctors consider sleeping on your left side to be the best sleep position for your body. Sleeping on your left side improves blood circulation, lymph flow, and the work of your digestive system. If you prefer this sleep position, you might avoid many problems with the immune system.
However, if you’re not ready for changes, try at least to maintain the natural physiological curve of your spine. Use a pillow to ease the tension in your knees and other parts of your body. A pillow will help you feel more comfortable during the night, despite your usual sleep position.
4. Consume melatonin.
As you know, melatonin is the sleep hormone that regulates our biorhythms. A constant lack of this hormone can lead to insomnia. Our bad habits have a negative impact on the production of melatonin in our body. It also slows down the aging process.
To prevent a melatonin deficiency, add to your daily ration foods rich in tryptophan: bananas, turkey, cheese, nuts, and seeds. Lastly, as a preventive measure, you can consume melatonin in a pill form, but you should visit your doctor first.
