Experts in this field recommend seven to eight hours of sleep in a perfect world, but at least 30% of the general population suffer from lack of rest to downright insomnia!

Let’s have a quick look at these proposed laws of sleep and how we can put them into use while traveling away from home.

Law of Cycles…

Tips For Better Sleep While Traveling

Our bodies adjust to regular sleep cycles within our biological clock. We are creatures of habit and we are used to resting in the dark and typical the same time each and every day.

Try to keep as close to a normal bed time schedule as you can!

When shifting time zones, do all your best to adapt to that time zone right away! Avoid naps and do your best to sleep in a quiet dark room, or as close to the environment you are used to at home.

Law of Relaxation…

Relaxation will definitely aid in your rest period. As well, avoid things that will prevent you from sleep such as…

• Caffeine;
• Nicotine;
• Exercise close to sleep time;
• Stress.

Alcohol can also play a major roll in sleep disruption, depending on the amount consumed and sugar content added. So it’s always best to try to avoid alcohol before sleeping to aid in sleep when traveling.

Law of Connections…

Tips For Better Sleep

Keep your bed away from home for just that, sleeping!

Your mind and body connects your bedroom with sleep. If this is not possible, then try to follow the steps above.

When you become relaxed, comfortable and drowsy feeling, then lights out! Your body is telling you it is time to sleep.

Law of Comfort…

This certainly is something the majority of us would definitely consider as obvious. We need to be comfortable in order to doze. So unless you can put yourself in as comfortable environment as possible, your chances of getting a good night’s slumber are greatly reduced.

Also, try to avoid large meals shortly before trying to sleep. Alcohol and other fluids that may have ingredients that could keep you awake and alert, should obviously be avoided.

Law of Effects…

Restful Sleep

All these things mentioned above can add up to a lack of sleep or insomnia. It could be just one, or many that keep you awake when traveling and away from home.

By following a few of these guidelines, your chances should improve greatly for a rest in a new unfamiliar environment.

Law of Non – Resistance…
