Do you have trouble sleeping? Here are the top tips for getting a good night’s sleep!
Keep your room dark – Light proof your bedroom when you are trying to sleep. Invest in curtains, blinds or an eye mask. When you sleep in the dark, it lets your body produce melatonin, which forms an essential part of the sleeping cycle.
Lie Flat – Poor sleeping posture can lead to aches and pains in the morning. If you always wake up with a stiff neck or sore muscles, make sure your pillows are not too high and that you lie as flat as possible.
Keep the temperature just right – The best sleeping temperature to ensure an uninterrupted night’s sleep is 61-64 degrees
Don’t eat right before bed – You should eat dinner a couple hours before you go to bed to stimulants like caffeine and sugar will not affect your sleep. Drinking alcohol can also result in poor sleep quality.
Get active – studies show that those that are active and healthy have less problems with sleep.
Clean your room – Dust, mold and pet dander can block your sinuses at night. Ventilate your room and change your sheets regularly.
Get into a routine – Going to bed around the same time every night will help your body get into a natural sleep cycle.
