Without a good night’s sleep, our energy is low. To fix it, we relay on endless amounts of caffeine. Whos guilty of that? Insert a gif of a man that pours a bucket of coffee on himself, haha Hi, that’s me 🙂
Instead, we can try working on a better sleeping habits.
Here are some tips:
- Stick to a sleep schedule
Try going to bed and getting up at the same time every day. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle.
2. Create a restful environment
Create an environment that’s ideal for sleeping.I personally sleep a lot better in a cool, dark and quiet room.
- Try a sleep meditation
Meditating before bed can not only help you fall asleep faster, but it may also help you stay asleep longer. Longer sleep=more energy. Yay 🙂
- Read a book
Reading a book can help you relax and improve your sleep.
- Exercise daily
Exercise is not only great for your physical and mental health but can also help you sleep better. Make sure you don’t exercise to close to bed time as it can raise the temperature of your body, which makes it harder for you to fall asleep.
6. Disconnect from work
Make an effort to disconnect from work before bed so you don’t wake up in the middle of the night thinking about your to-dos.
- Essential oils
Something about essential oil that helps me wind down. I don’t know if that’s the act of diffusing them but i feel like they tell my brain its time to power down and relax.
8. Have a Protein-Rich Evening Snack
Waking up hungry is the worst! Try eating a small, protein-rich snack in the evening like a handful of almonds, yogurt, cheese stick,etc.
- Stay way from alcohol
Alcohol helps you fall asleep fast but it ruins the quality of sleep and can even suppress breathing. Many people often
experience headaches, nightmares, sweating and waking up in the middle of the night.
- Visualize things that make you happy
Visualize a place that makes you feel happy and calm. Picturing a place that makes you feel peaceful, happy and relaxed can take your mind away from stressful things.
Using these tips above can help you fall asleep quickly, sleeping much better and having energy the next day.
