A productive day begins with a good night’s sleep. Healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in your quality of life. Continue reading for free tips to help improve the way you sleep!
Exercise daily. Maintaining regular physical activity can help you fall asleep more quickly and improve your sleep quality. When deciding what time of day to exercise, listen to your body to learn how well you sleep in response to when you work out.
Establish a pre-sleep routine. Ease the transition to sleep time with some relaxing activities an hour or so before bed. This might include taking a bath, reading a book, watching TV, or meditating. Avoid stimulating activities related to work or vigorous exercise.
Lighten up on evening meals. Eating pizza at 10 p.m. may lead to a night of restless sleep. You should finish dinner several hours before you go to bed, and try to avoid foods that may cause indigestion. If you get hungry at night, snack on foods that will not disturb your sleep.
Don’t watch the clock. Staring at a clock when you are trying to fall asleep or when you wake in the middle of the night can increase stress. This can make it difficult to fall back asleep. A helpful trick is to turn your clock’s face away from you.
