World Sleep Day: Are you also unable to fall asleep at night?

World Sleep Day is celebrated annually by the World Sleep Day committee of the World Sleep Society. The aim of the day is to highlight the advantages of healthy sleeping and draw awareness to the growing sleep problems and their preventability.

Sleep problems is a global epidemic, threatening health and quality of life for as much as 45 percent of world’s population.

The real reason why people are unable to fall asleep at night is because of the never-ending to-do list that is running in their minds. We live in a 24/7 era where we are constantly on-the-go and seem to carry with us a never-ending list of things to be done.

Researchers suggest that writing down the list of things to do will act as people’s catharsis and they will be able to feel better knowing that their list of things will be accomplished next day.

As unreal as it may sound, but writing down daily tasks helps calm down people’s brain and allow them to relax. Main reasons of insomnia include that we are constantly worrying about the tasks that we have to do next day.

A study published by Journal of Experimental Psychology revealed that five minutes of writing a specific to-do list could make people fall asleep faster.

Anyone who is struggling with slumber should get into a habit of offloading their thoughts on a piece of paper and the drift off in to their dreamland.
