There is nothing better than waking up in the morning after a revitalizing eight hours of sleep. You feel energized, rested and
ready to face day. However, that is usually not the case. In today’s busy society, people rarely get an adequate amount of sleep,
let alone rejuvenating sleep. On top of our busy schedules, there are several other thieves responsible for stealing
our precious snooze time.
Caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol are all responsible for making our nights restless. All of these products are stimulants
and they can easily keep us up half the night. Everyone knows about caffeine and its effects. We usually use this
product in order to keep ourselves alert and awake; that is why consuming caffeine 8 hours before bed is not recommended.
Even though this product does not get stored in your body, it takes several hours for it to be removed from your system.
Nicotine is just as threatening. This particular product is very addictive that is why certain smokers cannot sleep
well during the night. It is a proven fact that some smokers experience withdrawal symptoms at night. And clearly,
smoking in bed is not an option because it is very dangerous in numerous ways.
And the last, but certainly not least, sleep thief is alcohol. Many people feel oozy and sleepy after a heavy night’s
drinking; however, that does not mean that they will fall right asleep and experience the most restful night ever.
The fact is that alcohol is not a sedative. In fact, this particular product has a way of making you wake up several
times throughout the night. So if you ever wondered why your sleeping habits are poor, make sure that you are not
giving into any of these night time thieves.
