Finally, I’m skipping to Tip #45 from the list of “45 Best Health Tips Ever” by Health24. We will look at the tips that we’ve skipped on another day. This tip is “Goodnight, Sweetheart” and is a reminder that rest and sleep are good for us. We took an extensive look at this topic before, and I’m simply going to repost Day 80 (September 24th, 2018):
As always, I hope that you are well. And for the last few days, especially, I’ve been hoping that you have gotten a good night’s sleep. Did you enjoy yesterday’s video on sleep facts. Today, I thought that I would include a video on “How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep”, but when I looked through the YouTube archives, it appeared that everybody (OK, not everybody, but about 553 people) wanted to weigh-in on the topic.
After I winnowed out those videos that were at least a bit off-topic (e.g. “I Made a Bed out of Play Doh & It Was the Best Night’s Sleep I Ever Had!”, “How To Get a Good Night’s Sleep in Your Car“, “Train Your Cat to Let You Sleep”), those in other languages (నిద్ర బాగా పట్టటానికి చిట్కాలు), and those that were advertisements or music (e.g. “66 Dreamcatcher Tattoos for a Good Night Sleep”, “Golden Slumbers – Beatles Lullaby“), there were still over five hundred videos left to look at. I didn’t look at them all, but I think I found an informative and useful one, which is at the end of today’s blog entry.
Before we get to the video, here is a list of sleep-related topics ranging from “How to tell if you’ve had a good night’s sleep” to “Resetting your internal clock to become a morning person.” Each topic in the list includes a link to relevant information. Be sure to watch the video at the end of the list:
