Once you get a few poor night’s sleep in a row, the chances are you’ll get caught in a cycle that leaves you frustrated, overwhelmed and unable to accomplish anything.
Before you give up hope it’s important to know that there are ways to improve your sleep and that by working on it over time you’ll find a noticeable difference in the quality of your shuteye.
Here’s a few of the best ways to make sure you get the sleep you need and feel full of energy.
Establish a Consistent Sleep Routine: Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Consistency reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle and improves sleep quality over time.
Create a Sleep-Friendly Environment: Your sleep environment plays an important role in the quality of your sleep, here’s how to improve it:
- Keep it dark: Use blackout curtains or an eye mask to block out any light.
- Reduce noise: Use earplugs, white noise machines, or calming sounds.
- Temperature: Keep your bedroom cool, ideally between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit
Adopt Healthy Sleep Habits and Lifestyle Choices:
Limit caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol close to bedtime, as they are stimulants.
Avoid Screens Before Bed: The blue light from devices like smartphones, tablets, and computers can disrupt your sleep.
Regular Exercise: getting some physical activity during the day can promote better sleep. However exercise closer to bedtime may leave you too energized to sleep.
Relaxation Techniques: Establish a pre-sleep routine that includes relaxing activities such as reading, taking a warm bath, practicing deep breathing exercises, or meditating. These activities can help calm your mind and prepare your body for sleep.
Remember, it may take time to establish a consistent sleep routine and adopt healthy sleep habits. If you continue to experience sleep issues, it’s advisable to see a healthcare professional or a sleep specialist for further evaluation and guidance.
