The specialist said that everyone looks at the clock when they can’t sleep and starts counting down the time until the alarm goes off. The somnologist claims that such a common habit causes anxiety due to thoughts that you will no longer fall asleep and will have to get up soon.

NBN reports this with reference to the British edition of Express.

According to the expert, the brain immediately clings to such thoughts and begins to “do crazy things.” So if you're tossing and turning in bed or waking up in the middle of the night, don't grab your phone. It’s better to turn on a dim light and read a book, this will help you relax.

The somnologist also advises not to steal your time to sleep in the morning by snoozing your alarm clock several times. The specialist advises setting the alarm clock half an hour later in the evening.

Recall that the Ministry of Health told how Ukrainians can improve their well-being due to sleep disturbances.
