Keep reading to find out some tips and tricks to get to sleep and stay asleep.
Timing Is Everything
Waking up at the same time every day is a great precedent to set for getting your sleep schedule in line with the rest of your life. Even though you may be tempted to sleep in nice and long on the weekends, it can actually hinder your sleep quality. Doing this will train your body to be consistent and get it into a good routine.
We know, we are targeting your sleep and you are already groaning at us. Napping is one of the best things in life and it also can end up doing more damage to your REM cycle and sleep schedule if you take too many. It is important to keep your wake/sleep schedule consistent, it will make your body pick up on subtle cues when it’s time for bed and your sleep will improve.
No Food Or Drinks Allowed
Eating dinner or snacking late at night before you go to bed can actually activate your digestive system and keep you up. If you suffer from heartburn or acid reflux, this rule is in huge blinking neon letters for you. Drinking too much before bed will also activate your bladder and you will be making groggy trips to the bathroom when you’d rather be snoozing.
One key thing to remember is to limit your caffeine and stimulants to earlier in the day and evening.
