Want to Sleep Well? Listen to Bedtime Stories to Relax Your Body

Suara.com – The habit of listening to bedtime stories during childhood has many benefits, namely improving language skills as they grow up and calming their minds.

According to a doctor who graduated from Harvard and Yale Universities and founder of The TrueveLab, Darria Long, MD, this habit can be applied by adults too before bed.

“Listening to ordinary stories is calming, like bedtime stories for adults,” Long explained to Mind Body Green.

The story could be from a book, listening to a podcast, the radio or anything other than staring at a screen.

In addition, Long also recommends turning off the gadget screen 60 to 90 minutes before going to bed.

“Blue light interferes with melatonin production, causing the brain to think it’s still noon. Plus, staring at a screen before bed can stimulate the brain, preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep.”

He continued that any bright light before bed would make it harder for the body to realize that it was time to relax.

That’s why Long recommends using a low wattage bulb placed next to the bed for a better night’s sleep.
