Happiness is the feeling of contentment and satisfaction that craved by many but only achieved by some. Happiness is relative and subjective but for many successful individuals the presence of a great family life in a flourishing career is often not enough. On some occasions, compels individual from feeling a sense of loneliness, often sadness and melancholy.

How to Get Good Sleep Naturally

Home Remedies to Fall Asleep Quickly

A sound sleep at night directly affects your mental and physical health and the quality of your working life. A short fall in sleep can take a serious toll on your daytime energy, productivity, emotional balance, and even your weight. People seem terribly annoying, work stalls, and the future seems unattractive.

Unfortunately many of us regularly toss and turn at night, struggling to get the sleep we need. There is a solution. Making simple but important changes to your daytime routine and bedtime habits can have a profound impact on how well you sleep, leaving you feeling mentally sharp, emotionally balanced, and full of energy all day long.

Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and heavy meals in the evening. Alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine can disrupt sleep. Eating big or spicy meals can cause discomfort from indigestion that can make it hard to sleep. If you can, avoid eating large meals for two to three hours before bedtime. Try a light snack 45 minutes before bed if you’re still hungry.
Exercise during the day
Exercise daily. Vigorous exercise is best, but even light exercise and yoga are better than no activity. Exercise at any time of day, but not at the expense of your sleep.

Sick to your body's natural sleep-wake cycle
Stick to a sleep schedule of the same bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends. This helps to regulate your body's clock and could help you fall asleep and stay asleep for the night.

If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, in the afternoon. 
A short nap may help you get through the day, but if you find that you can't fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help.

Improve your sleep environment
Keep noise down. If you can't avoid or eliminate noise from neighbors, traffic, or other people in your household, try to mask it with a fan or sound machine. Earplugs may also help.
Keep your room cool. Most people sleep best in a slightly cool room (around 65° F or 18° C) with adequate ventilation. A bedroom that is too hot or too cold can interfere with quality sleep.
Make sure your bed is comfortable. Your bed covers should leave you enough room to stretch and turn comfortably without becoming tangled. If you often wake up with a sore back or an aching neck, you may need to experiment with different levels of mattress firmness, foam toppers, and pillows that provide more or less support.
Reserve your bed for sleeping. By not working, watching TV, or using your computer in bed, your brain will associate the bedroom with just sleep and make it easier to wind down at night.

Control your exposure to light
Manage your exposure to light. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone controlled by light exposure that helps regulate your sleep-wake cycle. Your brain secretes more melatonin when it’s dark—making you sleepy—and less when it’s light—making you more alert. However, many aspects of modern life can alter your body’s production of melatonin and shift your circadian rhythm. Avoid bright light in the evening and expose yourself to sunlight in the morning. This will keep your circadian rhythms in check.

Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual 
A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep.

Wind down and free your head       
Clear your mind. Your body needs time to shift into sleep mode, so spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity such as reading. For some people, using an electronic device such as a laptop can make it hard to fall asleep, because the particular type of light emanating from the screens of these devices is activating to the brain. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid electronics before bed or in the middle of the night.


If you’re still having trouble sleeping, don’t hesitate to speak with your doctor or to find a sleep professional.

How To Stop Sneezing And Runny Nose Allergy?

How To Stop Sneezing And Runny Nose Allergy? Early morning you wake up and then you start sneezing along with running nose, and this goes on for the next few hours with regular intervals. This annoying  sneezing spell may continue for minutes nonstop. But sneezing is necessary for our body as it helps us stay healthy. It is an involuntary action which acts as a defense mechanism of the body. When any kind of bacteria or virus enters our nasal lining, the brain responds to it. The act of sneezing is this reflex response, when our nose protects us from external germs or any other unwanted particles. This gets most irritating when sneezing is associated with running nose. It can be a very uncomfortable feeling especially when you are in public. A running nose though is quite a simple problem but it can disturb your daily activities.

How Do You Remove A Fish Bone From Your Throat? | 8 TIPS TO REMOVE FISH BONE STUCK IN THROAT

How Do You Remove A Fish Bone From Your Throat? Fish meat is undoubtedly one of the healthiest foods in the world as it is loaded with important nutrients such as protein and Vitamin D. It is also the world’s best source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly important for the body and the brain. However, care has to be taken while consuming fish, as improper consumption of fish meat may lead to its bone getting stuck in your throat. This is because of the narrow and thin bones that line the meat. Often, fish bones can get stuck in the consumer’s throat, piercing the throat in a manner that needs to be dealt with immediately. Since the bone is quite thin, it will not pass along the throat easily, and can cause irritation as well as swelling to the region. This can also make the throat swell and get constricted and thus can be dangerous and must be treated as quickly as possible.
