Some respite for insomniacs! Going to bed at exactly 10 p.m., wearing pyjamas and enjoying a cup of tea beforehand are the key to getting a perfect night’s sleep, says a new study.
A survey of 2,000 adults conducted by British bedlinen brand Bedeck said that in order to enjoy undisturbed sleep every night, people should have at least two hours rest in the evening after cooking, washing up and doing the chores. The last meal of the day should be eaten by 8.29 p.m. and the last drink, preferably a cup of tea, at 9.10 p.m., the Daily Express reported.
An average person also watched an hour and 46 minutes of TV, opting for a soap opera or quiz shows. According to the study, after going to bed at 10 p.m. in pyjamas, a person should spend 20 minutes reading before settling down, lying on the right-hand side facing outwards on the right-hand side of the bed. The person will fall asleep at 10.26 p.m. and not wake up till the alarm goes off at 6.47 a.m.
