Most of us feel pretty tired when we get home after a day at work - in an ideal world we just collapse onto the couch. In a more realistic world, we either continue working from home or have a drink (or two).
According to The Seattle Times, this kind of post-work routine could be the cause of your insomnia. Instead, you should:
- Listen to music on the way home
- Exercise or interact with friends and family
- Reflect on the positive aspects of your day
- Avoid alcohol and cigarettes
- Eat healthily
Although this does sound rather simplistic, we'd not previously considered that our post-work routines could be an insomnia cause. We'd be interested to know what you do to relax after work and whether you feel that routine affects your sleep.
