Health Tips to help you get a Better Night’s Sleep

Better SleepThere is nothing more rejuvenating than getting a good night’s sleep! When you are well rested, you will have more energy and a more positive outlook on the new day that lies ahead. A lack of quality sleep on the other hand, can leave you feeling frustrated and miserable. Inadequate sleep can even cause a variety of dangerous health issues like weight gain and stress. Everyone needs and deserves eight hours of sleep each night, so here are some helpful tips to ensure that you get a better night’s sleep.

Avoid caffeine before bed!

It is important that you do not consumer any form of caffeine within three or four hours of the time you plan on going to bed. If you suffer from insomnia, you should avoid it completely, even first thing in the morning. Coffee, chocolate, or any other stimulant will need to be cut from your diet to help you sleep better.

Take a warm bath!

A warm, soothing soak in the tub might be just what you need to get a peaceful night’s sleep. You can even light fragrant candles or incense, perhaps with some soft music to set the mood. Allow your body to relax and your mind will surely follow.

Set a regular bed time!

Try to maintain a regular sleeping schedule, so body becomes accustom to sleeping at the same time each night. You should also always aim to get at least eight hours of sleep each night. If you are going to bed after midnight and your alarm is set for 6:00am, you are setting yourself up for failure. Remember, you are never too old to have a bedtime.

Do a few light exercises an hour before bed!

A little workout to burn off any excess energy may help you rest easier once you go to bed. You don’t want to push yourself too hard or perform exercises too close to bedtime, since a good workout is designed to give you an energy burst (which is the last thing you want if you are hoping to sleep). Yoga is an excellent pre-bed workout that should make it easier for your body to wind down.

Don’t eat within two hours of going to bed!

Your body cannot sleep when it is trying to digest food. If you are absolutely starving before bed, pick something light and easily digested. Once you get in the routine of scheduling a bedtime, you can also start planning a time to stop eating for the day.

Getting adequate sleep is essential to your wellbeing and it is definitely achievable. Make sure to avoid caffeine, create a routine bedtime schedule with a cut-off point for eating, and then try a little light exercise followed by a warm bath. I am getting sleepy just thinking about it!
