Q&A It is better to spend your time peacefully before going to bed

I was asked a question the other day that is there any good ways to sleep well because it is very hectic with all the earthquakes and nuclear plants incidents. Today let me give a couple of ways to solve this problem.


Q&A it is better to spend your time peacefully as much as possible.

It is easier to understand if you know how human sub-consciousness works, that how important the state of your mind before going to sleep is to the health, happiness and success of one’s life. To take at look at us, not many know of such knowledge, perhaps we should know more about it.


As I know they are very common ways I recommend these six things below.

1.  Relax by taking it easy both mentally and physically about 30 minutes before going to sleep, avoid doing too much hard exercise (you don’t have to worry about doing anything other than things such as weight-lifting or jogging?)

2.  What you watch, say or do about 20 or 30 minutes before going to bed often influences a lot on your mind or what you are going to see in your dreams greatly. This is why I do not really recommend you to watch or read anything too stimulating.

I think it will help you to relax and get some good sleep to watch or read something peaceful and relaxing.

Of course, I take a stance that it is also mentally harmful to play video games with stimulating and violent visual or sound before going to sleep. (It is quite easy to guess that you will end up doing the rest of video games you were playing even in your dreams.)

3.  Regarding relationships, I do not recommend quarreling before going to sleep because it is likely to make you have such irritating feelings even just before going to bed.

I think that it is better to ask him or her to avoid bringing up any subjects that will be the cause of fights or quarrels by telling them that you need to take it easy and relax before going to sleep.

4.  As to what time you go to bed, I know it is an ideal especially in Japan but I believe that getting up early and going to bed early will make you sleep better and help you live a happier life. (This is totally an ideal and I am afraid for now I am a typical nocturnal person)

5.  you tend to sleep less well when the muscles in your body are stiff. It is very important to relax your muscles in your body by doing something like yoga or exercise or ask someone for massage when you feel somehow nervous and your body is stiff.

6.  After doing things like these, let me tell you about how your mind should be before going to sleep in your bed, it keeps you happy and at best sleeping mode to go to sleep while thinking of something so much fun or happy with sort of a relaxed meditating mind.

I thus think it is perfectly alright to play some relaxing music before going to sleep or waking up or get hug pillows or stuffed toys if you feel lonely.
