Who here is not sleep deprived? In our crazy world sleep is a very precious commodity, and so it pays to make the most of it. It’s important to get enough hours of sleep- usually 7-8 hours for adults- but it’s also important to make those hours count, and you’d be surprised how many things can interfere with that! Here are some guidelines for getting a good night’s sleep:

  • Be consistent. Your body needs to develop a rhythm, so it’s best to go to sleep and wake up at the same times every day.
  • Lighting.┬áMake sure it’s dark in your room when you’re sleeping, and let in the light during the day.
  • No screens. The light from screens stimulates your brain, so turn off your devices an hour or two before bed.
  • Exercise. Exercise is important for good sleep hygiene, but not within 3 hours of bedtime.
  • No alcohol. Alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine are all stimulants that interfere with sleep, so stay away from them after 4 PM.
  • Relax. Relax and quiet your body and brain before bed. Deep breathing, soft music, reading, and a warm bath are all soothing.
  • Temperature. Studies show that you’ll get your best sleep in a cool room.
  • Check your meds. Check to see if insomnia is a side effect; if so, discuss that with your doctor.
  • No napping during the day.

Try this for one week and you’re sure to sleep better. You’ll also love how happy and productive your feel during the day! Sweet dreams!
