We all work the whole and het to bed at night only. The full day marathon around work makes our mind puzzled. This puzzle in our mind leads us towards stress and when stress gets higher we feel frustrated.
Without any doubt stress and frustration becomes key factors for our less sleep. For once our mind can adjust with stress, frustration and less sleep but for a regular bases this trio is quite unfavorable.
So, if can't relax after a difficult day once you have slipped under the covers, good quality sleep is bound to be elusive. You are likely to have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or sleeping soundly.
So here are three things which will give you clue that you are in stress and frustration or not:
You can't turn off your busy mind
Instead, you keep going over and over your stresses, worries, and frustrations, contemplating them from various angles, which interferes with your ability to smoothly slip into slumber.
Your muscles are seriously tense
If you are experiencing muscle tension and pain or stress-related aches such as neck and shoulder pain or headaches, it can be difficult for you to fall asleep or stay asleep.
You heart is racing
A revved up or variable heart rate is a common stress symptom, and it's associated with increased levels of cortisol, greater physical training, and increased autonomic arousal- effects that are not conducive to falling asleep or sleeping well. On the contrary, it's a set up for sleep disturbance.
Fortunately if you spend some time doing some relaxation exercises such as progressive muscle relaxation or deep breathing before turning in for night, you can help your body and mind dial down the stress.
