These drinks contain methylxanthines, that they are exhilarating of the central nervous system, in such a way that they generate excitement psicomotriz. It is recommendable to drink a hot glass of milk, since it contains triptófano; some studies maintain that this substance, that it is an essential amino acid, promotes the relaxation. Additionally certain infusions, as the lime tea or the valerian, have a sedative effect that promotes the relaxation.

Place in a relaxed posture

Usually people sideways sleep. There are people that you usually sleep face up (supine position) or face downward (prone position). These postures are learnt in the childhood and, once built in, allow relaxing and to induce the dream easily. Under normal circumstances, the person looks for the posture with which chest of drawers is found and relaxed; however, the loss of physical autonomy can hinder its relaxation. The keepers of these people have to ensure them a correct bodily alignment that it maintains them in an anatomically correct posture to avoid the pain arising from muscular contractures.

Because of this, it is alerted that a quality of loss-making dream and, therefore, a decrease from the reply to the stimuli has impact in the academic achievement and work, and it increases the risk of accidents. Establish regular hours and to dedicate spaces during on the day to the break or the nap will help to improve the physical yield and the emotional equilibrium. Some studies estimate that “to throw a nap” of 10 minutes increases the work yield 15%. 

Dose the degree of activity

Although it seems that is needed of activity during the vigil to reach a level of tiredness that promotes the break and the relaxation, this degree of activity should not exceed until the point of that it maintains excited to the person and it does not allow him to disconnect physics and mentally.

Therefore, if the energy is dosed and the way is improved of facing emotions, the relaxation will be provided and the sleep induction will be improved, that it will be more refreshing.
