Are you tired of waking up and feeling like you hardly slept the night before? Do you see black bags under your eyes when you get up every morning? Following a few simple tips can help you get the rest that you deserve.
Pretend You’re a Kid Again
Pretend that you’re a kid again with a bedtime schedule. When you go to bed at the same time every night, your body eventually develops a routine. You’ll find that you grow tired and sleep better at night.
Hit the Outdoors
Spending even 10 or 15 minutes outside helps your body absorb sunlight and gain more Vitamin D, which can help you feel healthier. The more exercise that you get outside, the more your body will want to rest when you climb into bed.
Treat Your Bedroom Like a Bedroom
Stop using your bedroom as a living room, kitchen or sitting room. Turn off the television, put down that book and turn your bedroom into a place for sitting. When you do more things in bed, your body has a harder time shutting down at night.
Add a Fan
Adding a fan to your room can create white noise that helps you fall asleep, but it will also keep your room cooler. When you lower your body temperature, your brain relaxes and lets you fall asleep.
Take a Break
Before getting into bed, take a short break. Take a few deep breaths, clear your mind and let go of all the anger and frustration from your day. The better you feel, the faster you can fall asleep.
