How To Get a Better Night’s Sleep

Waking up the morning after a bad night’s sleep is one of the worst feelings around. You know you’re tired, you know you’re grumpy, and you know you’re not going to bother even trying to change your outlook for the rest of the day (guilty). Unfortunately, bad nights happen from time to time and sleep eludes some. While you might consider this something that happens and cannot be changed, you are wrong. You can make sure you sleep better.

Limit Technology

Watching television, staring at your phone, and playing on your computer stimulate your brain in a way that is not good for sleep. For an hour or so before bed, find something else to do that does not involve staring at any type of backlit screen to ensure you sleep much better.

Exercise

Really, there is no good reason not to exercise. Not only will you look and feel better, you will sleep better. You’ll live longer, lower your risk of many types of disease, and you will look better. All it takes is 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day to ensure that you’re life is the best possible. I do not understand why people forgo exercise.

Get Up

When you’re lying in bed completely unable to sleep, get up. The last thing you want to do is have your body associate bed with sleeplessness. Go read a book in soft light. Lie on the couch and watch the moon through the window. If you aren’t sleeping, go do something else.

Have a Drink

You know to avoid alcohol before bed to get the best possible sleep, but did you know you should drink to induce sleep. No, not a cocktail; instead, make yourself a glass of warm milk or chamomile tea to help relax your body and put you to bed.
