We all know the importance of consistently good sleep and how it can affect our mood – and even our health. But still, so many of us struggle to catch enough zzz’s to leave us feeling bright and refreshed come morning.
Why is that?
There are so many reasons why millions of people around the world struggle to sleep well. From stress to technology and beyond. BUT there are certainly some lifestyle changes we can make to try to remedy the issue.
If you’re struggling to sleep (and not for a medical reason), these top sleep tips might just help you to doze off and most importantly, stay asleep until sunrise.
If you thought night routines were just for the kids, think again. Studies show that having a calming and relaxing nighttime routine can be super beneficial when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep.
Make your routine work for you and incorporate things into it that you know help you to relax. Don’t just go from work, TV time or dinner straight to bed and expect to sleep. Especially if you know you struggle to doze off.
Instead, try a long bath or hot shower prior to bed and incorporate a routine of body oils, relaxing music, candles or night lights to help you to wind down from the day. Basically, anything that soothes you.
Do this an hour or so before bed and see how much of a difference it makes.
Getting good sleep isn’t just about what you do right before bed. What you do in the day can affect your sleep too.
Getting outside in the sunshine during the day can help you to sleep well. Sunshine boosts the energy you have in the day and helps you to get a better-quality sleep at night.
