‘I love sleep, always have…..and hopefully, always will’. In earlier times, people didn’t have much to do, so mostly all they used to do is sleep. Things have changed now-a-days; people are getting so busy in their daily schedules that no one has the time to go to sleep in a sound manner. Now we have got highly competitive in every field of life, so all those worries and tensions. And no one wants to lag behind; everybody wants to be the leader. To stay healthy, alert and fit, one needs the sleep at least 8 hours a day. Enjoying a sound sleep seems to be becoming a distant dream for most of the people.

If you make a time table about following a routine exercise schedule, it can definitely increase your quantity and quality of your sleep. For a sound sleep, one needs to do some physical work, once tired, sleep comes on instantly. Look at the small kids, they keep running here and there and after having dinner, go to sleep within seconds. But if you have a cozy office, where you don’t have to move physically, things worsen. Daily the body gains some extra calories, to lose them; we keep turning and tossing in our bed. To get the sleep naturally, make a timetable to exercise, and follow it strictly. If you begin exercising, better does it in the morning or early afternoon, as it is a stimulant that can keep you awake if pushed nearer to the bedtime.

How to overcome all this? Better make it a routine affair to sleep at a particular time. Make it a habit as it is beneficial to you.
