Are you tired of always lying in bed every single night, tossing and turning, and trying to stay awake the following day? I know, I get tired of doing that on a nightly basis, but what if I told you, that you no longer had to endure such pain in your life anymore? You may want to consider trying these five tips to help you get a great night’s sleep.
Get some exercise
Everyone always says exercising always makes everything better, which is 100% true. However, if you exercise during your daily routine, you will see a huge difference in the amount and quality of sleep you will get each night. Now, this doesn’t mean you need to go off and run five miles a day either. Even just going out and walking together with your spouse or kids after dinner can also be considered exercise.
Cut out caffeine
Now, I am not saying to go cold turkey either. We know how well that goes, don’t we? It is one thing if you are a coffee lover and drink coffee in the morning and a few caffeinated drinks throughout the day; however, when it starts getting later into the evening, try and cut those beverages out. This is a pretty common reason why you may be having a hard time getting a good night’s sleep.
No work allowed in your bedroom
This one is a huge one. It may not seem as huge as the others, but it really is. I will be the first to announce, I do work from my bedroom. I don’t follow this one at all. Do I suffer from this? Yes, I do.
If you work at home like myself, then you know how stressful it can be. Working in your bedroom usually means you don’t have a home office, or you feel more comfortable in your room. Well, for starters, if you are completing stressful tasks including paying your bills, dealing with taxes, or just plain old working that you can’t seem to get away from, you may want to try and move that portion of your life into your living room or kitchen. You should always try and keep your room for sleeping and sleeping only.
Keep your phone off
At night, you should always try to keep your bedroom free of your electronics. I know most people now use their cell phones as alarms, which is perfectly fine, but instead of having it on vibrate or loud, turn it on silent. Yes, turn it on silent and put the screen facing down, this will eliminate you from trying to check your phone to see if work contacted you, emails, and text messages.
Get into a routine
I know sometimes we tend to go to bed at random times, but if you establish yourself a bedtime like your parents did when you were growing up. Your body will get used to going to bed at that certain time, which will allow you to get tired. Of course, you won’t be able to go to bed at that time all the time, due to different events going on during your life. However, as long as your stick to that schedule 90% of the time, you will see a huge difference in your sleeping schedule.
Just by following these five tips, you will be on a way to a better night’s sleep. Just remember to always take out any and all distractions that may be in your bedroom before you head to bed. You want your room to be for sleeping not a place to worry about everything that happened that day or what will happen in the future.
