3 tips for better sleep that are actually realistic
Sleep is important, but how can you get enough if you struggle to fall asleep?
These days, it seems like everyone has a problem with sleep. More often than not, you're not getting enough of it. Maybe you’re too busy or too stressed, or maybe something just seems off, but time and time again, the studies have been rolled out to prove that not sleeping enough is bad for your health.
However, if you’re a regular person who wants to stay up late sometimes or watch movies in bed (even though experts may disapprove), what CAN you do to get better sleep?
The National Sleep Foundation recommends that you stick to a regular sleep schedule. This is hard to do perfectly, but try your best.
The Foundation also suggests you exercise regularly, which doctors have been recommending for ages! Screen time before bed is a bad idea, but at the very least, try to have a relaxing ritual before you shut your eyes. This might be a short meditation or writing a to-do list for the next day, so you don’t lie awake and worry you’ll forget something.
And finally, make sure you’re actually comfortable. Is your bed hurting you? Are you hungry? Are you too hot? Are you allergic to the dog curled up at your feet? Take the time to create a soothing sleep environment where you can really relax.
After all, being tired is no fun.
