10 tips for a good night’s sleep:
1. 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. Even though I had heard this before, I was staying up late on weekends to watch movies with my husband or going out to late dinners when we travel. Trying to stick to the same schedule made a big difference on Monday mornings.
2. 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. I recently purchased a new anti snore device it has helped me sleep so much better, if your interested in getting one visit website here. These things can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep, or remain asleep. My bedtime ritual involves a shower (I sleep better if I feel clean), followed by a few yoga poses, and then reading in bed (an actual book, not on an electronic reader). When I don’t do my ritual, it takes me much longer to fall asleep.
3. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Power napping 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. This one has never been a problem for me as I can’t nap but I have a lot of friends who could use this tip!
