“New year, new me” is a phrase we encounter annually, often accompanied by a surge of people signing up for gym memberships. As we step into a new year, many of us set resolutions for a healthier life. Turning these resolutions into real changes can be tough, especially when it comes to forming habits that make us feel better. Amidst all the excitement, there’s one crucial factor that often gets overlooked—our sleep.
Despite being a routine we’ve mastered since birth, many struggle with this seemingly simple yet vital aspect of life. Sleep is the corner stone of our health. Our routines revolve around sleep – in order for us to focus on our responsibilities (or even focus at all), we must determine which habits benefit our sleep and which may harm it. According to the data gathered by the Philips and KJT Group in 2019, 62% of people around the globe have problems with sleep. Recognizing how crucial good sleep is can make a big difference. It not only refreshes our bodies but also enhances cognitive
functions, emotional well-being, and overall health.
Understanding your personal connection with sleep is the first step toward achieving better sleep. Think about what sleep means to you and analyze your habits regarding sleep. The methods are endless; create a mindmap around the word sleep, start listening to your body and tracking the signs it gives you, keep a diary of your sleep habits. Find a method that works for you! The main idea is that you reflect, examine and review your sleeping habits and relationship with sleep.
After finding the patterns that benefit and harm your sleep, you can start to think about possible solutions. Before heading straight to the internet, try to ponder solutions on your own. Use your self-awareness and reflection abilities by paying attention to your body and experimenting with your own ideas before depending on external information. The internet can be a great way to support your journey but remember that healthy sleeping habits are not one size fits all.
Equipped with the knowledge of the problem and an idea for a solution, you are now ready to craft a personalized plan for achieving your sleep goals. Consider whether you prefer starting with small adjustments or tackling a more comprehensive approach. Reflect on the challenges of breaking and forming habits, gauge your motivation for change, and assess the time and effort you’re prepared to invest in enhancing your sleep.
The consistent theme of self-awareness and reflection in this article is a good place to start any journey. Seek a method that allows you to gather and explore your thoughts without the pressure of perfection. Look for solutions that resonate with you, and don’t hesitate to adapt and combine different methods. Your journey toward a healthier lifestyle and improved sleep is uniquely yours; why not use a bit of imagination and creativity to get there?
