6 Tips on How to Get Better Sleep
Are you feeling kind of worn out, and just plain exhausted lately? When you wake up in the morning, does it feel like your body weighs like a ton of bricks? Well, it may be because of lack of sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial for your overall health and wellness. If you’re not getting enough sleep or if you’re having trouble getting good sleep (yup, there’s a correct and wrong way to sleep) you may not be able to recover from the stress and exhaustion of from your accumulated stress. So if you can’t sleep or not getting a good rest, here are some tips that might just help you get a better sleep and help you reclaim your mornings!
Do some Exercise During the Day
Adding exercise to your daily routine can help you fall asleep faster and enjoy a more relaxing sleep. If you can time it correctly, you would feel a little tired by bedtime which can help you fall asleep faster. But be careful, since if you exercise right before sleeping, it may cause you to be too energized to fall asleep, and the result would be, you would be up all night while being really tired, and you’ll wake up feeling exhausted.
Create a Pre-bedtime Ritual
Watch What you Eat
Take your dinner about three hours before going to sleep. We’re not saying you should sleep on an empty stomach, because that’s just as bad as sleeping while you’re stuffed.
If you’re full, it will take longer for your stomach to settle down, and you won’t be able to fall asleep. If you get hungry right before bedtime, you should eat a light snack so it would be faster for your stomach to digest it. So avoid that last piece of pizza right before going to sleep.
Avoid Long Daytime Naps
When we were all kids, are parents always made us sleep during the afternoon, but now that we’re adults, you aren’t allowed do it anymore! Just kidding. Everybody loves nappies. But now, you should limit it to about 20 to 30 minutes so it would be a lot easier to sleep at night. Well, if you’re like us working the night shift, you have to make an exception to the rule since you’d be asleep during the day.
Use the Right Kind of Pillow
A pillow has to be just right. It has to be fluffy and the color pink with the words “Princess” embroidered on it. Okay, just kidding! Your pillow shouldn’t be too thin since your head would be tilted backward; it also can’t be too high since your head would be at a bad angle, and that would be really uncomfortable. Having just the right pillow is important to getting a good sleep since it would help you fall asleep quicker, and you’ll wake up feeling like a million bucks.
Sleeping in a better position
There are some people that move a lot when they sleep, and when they wake up they’ll in be the weirdest and most awkward positions you could think of. Well, that may be a problem since you could wake up with some aches and pains throughout your entire body. What you should do is make it a routine to right before falling asleep, keep your head and neck in a straight position. Other than that just go with whatever is comfortable for you.
