Return more clarity and energy to your mornings by getting better rest throughout the night. Have you noticed that you’ve been tossing and turning a lot at night, waking up for hours in the middle of the night, or waking up with aches in your neck and back? There are solutions if you’re experiencing any of these issues. Keep reading for five great tips to achieve a better night’s rest!
Sleep On A Schedule
The first tip for achieving a better night’s rest is to make a sleep schedule. When you schedule all your other activities during the day, add the time of night that will allow you to get at least the recommended eight hours of sleep.
Could it be that your mattress isn’t performing as well as it should for your body? Over time, as your body changes, you’ll need to adjust your mattress and pillow to better serve the alignment of your spine and your comfort level. Mattresses older than seven years should be replaced as it won’t provide the necessary support you’ll need for a restful sleep.
What you eat before bed and the time that you eat may be affecting your sleep patterns. Give your body at least two hours before you lay down for bed to fully digest your food and beverages. Also, limit your caffeine intake too much earlier in the day so that your body isn’t wired when you want it to settle down.
This probably won’t come as a surprise but stress from the day can have a significant impact on the amount of rest you’re able to get at night. Develop habits that help eliminate daily stress and worry before getting to bed. Listen to your favorite music, dig into a great book, or take a relaxing bath so that your body and mind can settle down for the night.
Unplug and Disconnect
If you have a television or computer in your bedroom, turn them off when you’re settling down for the night. Take your smartphone out of your bed as all of this artificial light inhibits your ability to get to sleep.
