According to the specialist, in order to make it easier to fall asleep, and the sleep was sound and full, you should spend a productive period of wakefulness. The doctor emphasized that one should get ready for bed already in the morning hours. It is best to spend the day actively to feel tired.

Reading will also help you fall asleep, but only those books that have anti-stress and relaxing effects. In addition, the somnologist recommends giving up the use of gadgets that emit blue light, as well as physical activity an hour before bedtime. It is also worth protecting yourself from the flow of information, emotional stories and attempts to sort things out.

Cherkasova also urged to pay attention to sleepwear, which should be comfortable and not cause discomfort. The doctor added that if a person wakes up early and tosses and turns after waking up, but cannot fall asleep again, this is a reason to see a doctor, writes NSN.

On the same day, in an interview with Nation News, Cherkasova spoke about the root causes of daytime sleepiness. According to her, this can be a sign of many diseases. Most often, severe fatigue is a signal of the illness of respiratory arrest during sleep. The doctor noted that any cessation of breathing is a stress that causes micro-awakening of the brain, the website writes. In addition, the causes of drowsiness during the day can be a malfunction of the thyroid gland, as well as oversleeping.
