4 ways to manage your sleep during winter

Winters, characterized by shorter days, longer nights and limited light exposure, can disrupt your sleep pattern by affecting melatonin (sleep-inducing hormone) production. Experts suggest some ways to manage your sleep quality during this season.

Sunlight in the morning can help combat sleepiness by normalizing hormone levels. This can improve your mood and help reset your sleep pattern.

Get your dose of sunlight

Wearing warm clothes while going to bed will help you fall asleep quicker. Accessories like eye patches, ear muffs and warm socks can help.

Stay warm

Maintain a comfortable sleep environment. Lowering the thermostat, listening to calming music and keeping some soothing fragrances in the bedroom can help you get a good night’s sleep.

Ensure a pleasant sleep environment

Time your meal right

According to experts, you should have dinner two to three hours before going to sleep. This helps prevent indigestion and acid reflux, promoting better sleep quality.
