7 Things You Should't Do Before Going to Bed

7 Things You Should't Do Before Going to Bed

Have you ever noticed that some nights you can’t fall asleep easily? Or if you can do so, you can’t have a peaceful rest with sweet dreams… First of all I’m posting the link of  a Youtube Channel with Sleeping Music and Soft Melodies to help you relax and sleep. –> SLEEP MUSIC RELAX ZONE

But there are just a few things you shoudn’t do before going to bed, as famous scientists suggest, so your sleep can finally be regenerating and relaxing.


The problem is that exercising two hours before going to bed can increase your body temperature, and make sleeping more difficult. But let’s face the reality guys, doing exercises? I’m already tired, why should I make things worse? Problem solved.

Watch TV or Surf the Web

Studies have shown that the pre-sleep time spent in front of the screen can hamper the ability of the body to fall asleep. The likely guilty? Well, the lights of these screens may hinder the development of melatonin, the hormone that promotes sleep.

We are lucky, melatonin is also in tablet form… otherwise do we have to throw away the television in the bedroom, the laptop, the ipad or iphone… I’m not joking…

Take a Hot Shower or a Bath

Hot showers and baths can actually help you fall asleep, but being overheated or sweaty can make it hard falling asleep. Let your body cool down before going to bed… ok I can accept this…

Drink Too Many Fluids and Wine

Caffeine, of course, and alcohol both make it difficult to get a good night rest.

But drinking a lot of any liquid within the last hour or two before going to bed will lead to those long late night bathroom breaks, and further disturb your sleep. You shouldn’t go to bed thirsty, anyway, or you’ll probably wake up in the middle of the night and have a glass of water. Balance is key here.


Whatever your work or school problem is, it can certainly wait until next morning. Get the job done stimulates the brain and can cause unnecessary stress, pretty much the opposite of what you want to feel if you’re trying to fall asleep! But sometimes with the pace of our ordinary lives, doing our job also at home is not a choice, but rather a necessity.

Have Serious Conversations or Read a Suspense Novel

You’ve probably heard the phrase, “Do not go to bed angry.” And, apparently, it’s totally accurate! A research has shown that going to sleep immediately after a fight or a traumatic experience preserves your emotions until you’re awake again. The human body is not able to fall asleep in situations of danger. It is like a defense mechanism.

So it is better to avoid any fights with partners or roommates. Easy ah?… yes… easy…

Eat heavy

Christmas Lunch at every hour, New Year’s Eve Dinner also in October… everyday like a big fat party! Pay attention on what you eat, especially in the evening, or if you go to bed early. Remember to choose light food, avoiding carbohydrates or acidic foods that can turn your night in a nightmare…

The conclusion is simple … you shouldn’t do anything before going to bed… there is also a short list of foods that you can eat, a little notes of things you can say, and of course a tv guide with relaxing programs that you can watch at night.

Now, however, many of us have become accustomed to do something strictly forbidden on this list before going to bed but I think the important thing is to calm your mind so sleep will be peaceful and serene.

As music producers we can suggest you some relaxing sleep music that can help your “wild nights”, when dreams are late to come… SLEEP MUSIC THERAPY.
