It is generally recommended to get on average between 7 and 9 hours of “uninterrupted” sleep a day. Yes it’s not just about the quantity of your sleep, the numbers of hours 7-9 hours. It is also much about the quality of your sleep, therefore the recommendation is “uninterrupted” sleep, focussing on your quality of sleep.
Several studies show that potassium may be beneficial to a deeper sleep as it may slow your pulse. Foods rich in natural minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium are a good habit to include in your dinner.
Green leafy vegetable such as spinach
Also, did you know that grapes are the only fruit found to contain the sleep-regulating hormone melatonin, so grab some grapes before you go to sleep! But don’t drink grape juice as then you will get too much sugar level and energy.
Lastly, an additional sleeping tip is the use of a good ergonomic pillow and to sleep on your right side which is said to open your heart or simply sleep on your back, but you want to prevent sleeping on your stomach, which places a strain on your back and spine.
Have a great quality sleep tonight!
