Spending time on social media sites, keeping a tab on your Instagram and Facebook feed, staying up and spending hours on chats. Accept it or not, we don’t realize how much time we waste on all these social media platforms. For college students, being up all night and keeping their Instagram feed all pretty has become a necessity, even the adults don’t lack behind. What we fail to realize is that these habits are hindering our sleeping pattern and for a good peaceful sleep you need to take a break from technology and keep your smartphones away.
A daily workout like a nice morning walk or half an hour of cardio won’t only help you with your anxiety and depression but also with your sleep cycle. Workout exhausts your body, which helps you get a better sleep and also keeps you healthy. This is the reason why working out is number one priority for so many human beings around us.
