It may seem stupid to think regarding falling asleep during the day, but if you're as irritated by insomnia as I am—not to mention the fatigue it can cause the next day—worth it's some thought. Here's what you're going to want to keep in mind for a better night's sleep during the day.
Eat food Earlier :
Plan your day so that the time for dinner falls earlier in the evening. Heavier meal can take a lot of work for your belly to digest, which may make it more difficult for you to sleep well, so don't eat too much in two hours of bedtime (and stay away from spicy and junk food if you want to keep the nightmares away).
If you get too hungry as bedtime creeps along, there are a few things that are ok to consume until bedtime, and can also help you sleep—like bananas, oatmeal, and whole wheat bread, to name a few.
Evite The Napping (at least for now):
Napping during the day can be helpful, but as you begin to get the hang of this new routine, avoid napping during the day. As Health.com notes, napping will make it more difficult to sleep at night:
Leave The Job Alone :
When you wind down the day of work, take some time to plan the first job for the next morning. It might be hard not to worry about work during the night—especially if anything significant occurs the next day—but the better you're prepared the day before, the easier you'll be able to relax and fall asleep that night.
Should Not Drink Coffee Or Beer :
We all know what caffeine and alcohol are doing to the brain, and none of them are healthy sleeping aids. Caffeine is obvious; you want to keep as far away from it as you can in the hours before you go to sleep—or even in the afternoon, if you can help.
