What Can I Do To Sleep Better?

Do you have trouble sleeping? I’ll bet you would love some tips to help you get more restful sleep so you can wake up feeling fresh and be the best version of yourself every day.

Healthy Sleep Tips

  • Have the right temperature in your room. Ideally, it should be less than 70 degrees and above 66.
  • Wear things like socks to bed to avoid nighttime wakings.
  • Make sure that you have comfortable blankets, not too much but not too little so that you can snuggle up and keep yourself warm.
  • Before you go to bed, you don’t want to be doing things like using the computer, watching TV, or being on your cell phone within the last 30 to 60 minutes before you go to bed. It keeps your brain stimulated so it thinks that it’s still daytime and it makes it more difficult for you to be able to fall asleep.
  • Make sure that your bed is a bedtime place only. It’s not a place to do extra work. It’s not a place to be eating. It’s a place all you do is sleep. Maybe you can do some nighttime reading but we don’t have much else in there at all.

You want to create an environment of rest. You want to create a peaceful environment. You can even wear an eye mask at night or even ear plugs if noise or light affect you. That way, you’re not having all these interferences and you’re able to get to that REM cycles of sleep which is the deep restful sleep that we all need.
