Have you been tossing and turning each and every night only to wake up exhausted in the morning? Being restless at night is one of the worst feelings because it will make you feel tired and fatigued all day long. If you’re looking for a better night’s sleep, be sure to follow these nighttime tips.
Keep a Routine
The first thing you need to do in order to get a good night’s sleep is to set and follow a sleeping routine every single night. Start by turning the lights down an hour before bed and refrain from using the computer or watching television to relax your eyes. Play some relaxing music or sit in silence as you sit and meditate.
Tea is Key
Making yourself a nice, hot cup of tea could be the perfect thing you need to put you in a relaxing mood before bed. Stay clear of teas that are caffeinated and don’t use sugar because both will keep you up all night. Opt for teas like chamomile or a type of herbal tea.
Keep Track of Time
You may have the intentions of going to sleep early every night, but sometimes time can slip away from us. One minute it’s 9 o’clock and before you know it — it’s after midnight! If you have an alarm set for when you want to wake up, set a second alarm for when you want to go to sleep. Setting a nighttime alarm an hour before bed will allow you the time to finish what you’re doing and start getting ready for bed.
Getting a better night’s sleep is something all of us need to work on, but with these tips you’ll be catching more Z’s than you’ll know what to do with.
