And a good night’s sleep is a proven way to eliminate stress,
improve your energy and make you feel positive.
Here are four proven tips to sleeping well…
Keep a regular sleep timetable
Keeping a regular sleep timetable by going to bed and waking
up at the same time every day will ultimately help you feel
energized and refreshed.
So set yourself a fixed rest and wake up time that you follow
every day, even on weekends.
Avoid late night television
Many of us will watch television as a way to wind down at night
or fall asleep.
But what many people don’t realise is that television actually
stimulates the mind, rather than relaxing it.
Late night television usually consists of content that either shows
disturbing material or requires us to think and use our brains.
The light from the television can also confuse our body clock,
making it harder to fall asleep
Exercise at the right time
While regular exercise positively impacts sleep quality, it is best
done in the earlier part of the day.
Exercise stimulates the body by raising its temperature, so if you
exercise later in the evenings you may experience trouble getting
to sleep as the body requires a cooler temperature in order to
wind down and promote rest.
Adopt a pre-bed ritual
Doing activities that help relax the body will make it easier for you
to drift off. Things like taking a warm bath, stretching, reading a
light book or listening to gentle music will help you wind down
after a long day and ultimately send cues to your body that it is
almost time to sleep. A calm pre-bed routine will help your body
prepare for sleep, allowing you to get to sleep more easily.
So if you are having difficulties sleeping try adopting some of
these tips to improve your sleep quality
And get a great night’s sleep at the same time!
Have a great week.
