6 Steps To A Better Sleep

6 Steps To A Better Sleep

1. Stick to a sleep schedule

It's a good idea to set aside no more than eight hours for sleep. The recommended amount of sleep for a healthy adult is at least seven hours. Most people don't need more than eight hours in bed to achieve this goal.

Make sure to go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle.

If you don't fall asleep within about 20 minutes, leave your bedroom and do something relaxing. Read or listen to soothing music. Go back to bed when you're tired. Repeat as needed.

2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink

It's advisable not to go to bed hungry or stuffed. In particular, avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up.

Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off and can wreak havoc on quality sleep. And even though alcohol might make you feel sleepy, it can disrupt sleep later in the night.

3. Create a restful environment

Create a room that's ideal for sleeping. Comfy bed sets and quality fabrics can really make a difference. Often, this means cool, dark and quiet. Exposure to light might make it more challenging to fall asleep. Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs.

Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, might promote better sleep

4. Limit daytime naps

Long daytime naps can interfere with night time sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day.

5. Include physical activity in your daily routine

Regular physical activity can promote a better nights sleep. However, avoid being active too close before bedtime. If you're stuck inside and been told to stay indoors, home fitness is a really good idea to keep you fit and active. Why not try some home fitness kettlebells

6. Manage worries

If you're worried or concerned before bedtime, you can jot down what's on your mind which helps us to separate these issues from our sleep

Start with the basics, such as getting organised, setting priorities and tasks to keep busy. Meditation can also be useful for some people.
