Bedgasm – “A feeling of complete and utter euphoria which peaks when climbing into bed at the end of a long workday, a long road trip or hours of extremely strenuous physical activity. Under perfect conditions, the physical release has been likened to that of an intense sexual experience.”
The importance of sleep cannot be dismissed – it’s when the body heals, repairs, grows and detoxes. If you do not get enough sleep, it can have a range of negative health consequences over time, with proven links to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and even weight gain.
So how do you get that feeling of Bedgasm you ask? You need to adopt the following strategies to help you get a good night’s sleep:
Create a sleep ritual
Creating a sleep ritual is key to creating good sleep. It can be as simple as three steps: writing down something you’re grateful for, sipping on a herbal tea and lighting a candle. It is also important to try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends, as being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep wake cycle.
Pay attention to what you eat and drink
Avoid large meals within a few hours of bedtime, avoid nicotine, caffeine and alcohol as the stimulating effects can take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on your quality of sleep.
Create a restful environment
Create a room that is conducive to a good night’s sleep. For most people that means cool, dark and quiet. Avoid technology before bedtime and consider putting away your phone and turning off the television around 8pm. It is also good to do calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or meditating or reading a book.
