How to bounce back after a bad night’s sleep.
Had trouble with sleep the night before? Wake up feeling drained and not sure what to do? Here’s how to bounce back after a bad nights sleep.
I get it. It’s not every night, we all get to have a well-rested sleep. As I’m writing this, I’m relating to this so much more now, Heck, last night was terrible. Anyways, sometimes, it’s so bad that we feel terrible after, about the lack of sleep as a result.
While not having a good night’s rest, is not always an issue of insomnia, there are many potential reason why.
So few of us actually do sleep long enough, to combat a bad night’s sleep.
It could be a reason of bad lifestyle, too much intake of sugar/ caffeine, or simply an issue of being psychologically disturbed. Whatever your reasons for not having a good sleep that night, know that everyone experiences this at some point.
How to bounce back from a bad night’s sleep
Getting about and going outside. Exposure to bright light is gonna help reset the body internal time clock and help with wakefulness.
The only true way, to bounce back from a bad night’s sleep is to take a nap. There is no better cure for lack of sleep than sleep itself. I understand full day time sleep is not possible for day time workers, but taking a nap here and there will help. Unlike sleep napping can only take just a few minutes, which will give you a sense of reset and temporary boost.
Exercise can also be beneficial. Exercise does the same, it improves alertness and stimulates wakefulness. You may be thinking, how could you possibly exercise after a bad night sleep. It easier said than done but if you do, I promise you’ll feel so much better within yourself. You’ll be ready to take on your day.
Eat right in the morning
Make sure you have a decent meal. A lot of people tends to gravitate towards energy drink with high sugar content. Our body normal process of breaking down sugar gets out of control whenever we lack decent sleep. Our metabolism go.out of gear as a result. I would recommend avoiding those as the sugar accumulates in our body and can actually make you more tired, leading to a crash later on. All I’m saying is, don’t take sugary food after a bad night’s sleep.
Other healthy options for getting energy is caffeine from green tea or coffee. Not too much, but in moderation. 1 -2 cups and no later than noon is sufficient. Over drinking caffeine will make you feel fatigued as a result.
Consider things like whole grain or proteins for your meal in the morning, will make all the difference. Make sure you have a decent meal and do not gravitate to sugars. I recommend Orgain Organic Superfoods. This superfood drink is packed full of protein, nutrition, and will make you feel superior. The boost of energy, is all you need to carry on with your day. Not only, will it make you feel great, it’s easy to prepare and it taste super delicious too.
Follow these steps and after a night or 2 of little sleep, studies show that the body and Brain can fully recover, with a few nights of good sleep.
