What will I do to reduce my sleep?
In this day and age of overtasking and multitasking, lots of people wish they could save some hours off of their nightly need for sleep. If that sounds like you, unfortunately, your body and brain may not agree with your wish. Most adults feel best when they get somewhere between 7 and 9 hours of sleep a night. Less than that, and you could experience negative effects from sleep deprivation, such as irritability, a weakened immune system, and memory loss. Please suggest how to get rid of sleep?
@nilanjana The goal here is to train your body to fall asleep when you’re tired. One way to do that is by giving yourself ample time to relax at night before lights out. Try turning your home, or at least your bedroom, from a brightly lit, daytime environment to a cozy and restful nighttime one.
Around an hour before you want to fall asleep dim the lights, and begin transitioning to your sleep routine. This might include washing your face, brushing your teeth, and getting out of work clothing into pajamas.
Alcohol is a sedative that can knock you out cold, or at least help you fall asleep quickly. However, it metabolizes in your system over the course of several hours, resulting in sleep disruption and poor sleep quality. Drinking alcohol can also dehydrate you and cause grogginess or a hangover, which affect your ability to wake up refreshed.
Some people can down an espresso after dinner with no ill effects. Others can’t drink coffee after 3:00 p.m. Caffeine stays in your system from 4 to 6 hours. If you suspect that your late-day cola is keeping you up at night, eliminate all forms of caffeine from your diet at least 6 hours before you want to be asleep.
