Let's learn how to sleep well by reducing stress. Stress is always around us and part of out life, threatening to ruin us. You can’t eliminate stress completely but you can learn how to manage it. The following gives you four stress management strategies for improving your health.
Breath in through your mouth and out through your nose. Take deep breaths and count to 10 in between each breath. Try to hold the air in your lungs for at least 10 seconds before exhaling through your nose.
This helps regulate your oxygen intake and will help you relax.
Nothing can beat a good night sleep. Your body is performing self recovery during sleep and this is vital to the proper function of your body and all its organs. No medication in the world can beat this natural self recovery system.
