It’s common knowledge that healthy sleep is one of the pillars of a healthy body, but most people do not sleep enough. How many hours do you sleep a night? Would you like to sleep more and better?

Here are the tips that can help you with that:

  1. Follow a regular sleep routine: Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Creating and following such a routine helps synchronize your body’s internal clock with the actual clock and promotes quicker falling asleep and better sleep.
  2. Create a relaxing bedtime ritual: A pre-sleep ritual that aids in relaxation can be of great help if you find it hard to fall asleep. It can be lighting a scented candle and reading, taking a soothing bath, meditating, practicing deep breathing, and so on.
  3. Make your bedroom sleep-ready: Good sleep requires complete darkness and lack of noise. Make sure your bedroom corresponds by using blackout curtains, earplugs, or a white noise machine to eliminate disturbances.
  4. Minimize screen exposure before bed: The screens of our most used devices like phones, tablets, and computers emit blue light that can disrupt your body’s melatonin production, a hormone vital for sleep regulation and quick falling asleep. To avoid that, make sure not to use screens at least an hour before bedtime.
  5. Watch your diet and caffeine intake: To avoid trouble falling asleep, avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and alcohol close to bedtime. Instead, opt for a light, healthy snack if you’re hungry before bed.

Keep in mind that improving your sleep often involves experimenting with these tips to determine what suits you best. Gradually integrate these recommendations into your routine, and be patient as you work towards cultivating healthy sleep habits. For more interesting articles please visit our website
