No matter your age, a good night’s sleep is important for your overall health and wellness. If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, it could be because of your sleeping habits. Do you always use your phone just before bedtime? Do you keep tossing and turning thinking about things that stress you out?
Having a good bedtime routine can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep. Here are some of the things you can do if you want to sleep more soundly.
Establish A Sleep Schedule
Children are not the only ones who need a good bedtime routine. Even adults can benefit from sticking to a sleep schedule. Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day―even on weekends and during vacations―helps regulate your body’s circadian rhythm. Try to create a good sleep-wake cycle. It might take a couple of weeks to get your body to cooperate, but once you’re set, you might not even need an alarm clock.
Fix Your Sleeping Environment
While some people can sleep anywhere, others need to have the perfect sleeping environment to get quality sleep. This can include various aspects such as temperature, noise, lighting, and even mattress choice. Optimize your sleeping environment and try to do what you can to make sure that your bedroom is a quiet and relaxing place.
Make Your Room A No-Gadget Zone
Admit it: you probably check your social media accounts while you’re waiting to fall asleep. Although this might seem harmless, it is one of the factors that can prevent you from catching enough z’s. Using your gadgets in bed will make your body think that it’s still daytime. If possible, make it a rule to stop using gadgets like smartphones and laptops in your bedroom. Also, avoid watching TV at least two hours before going to bed.
Try Relaxation Techniques to Release Stress
Many of us tend to toss and turn in bed because we ponder on things that stress us out, such as financial or health issues. Try to look for an activity that will help decrease your level of stress just before bedtime. Drinking chamomile tea or meditating for a few minutes is a good idea. The less stressed out you are, the faster it will be for you to fall asleep.
