Getting a good night's rest every night is a crucial aspect of living a happy and healthy lifestyle.
We're bringing you 4 of the most effective ways to improve your quality of sleep that you can try out tonight. You may be surprised how much you can benefit the next day from a proper kip the night before!
A sleep-friendly environment!
There’s plenty of things that you can do to allow for a more restful environment. Removing any distractions such as light sources and noise can minimize the stimuli that may be increasing your brain activity and preventing your mind from resting. Ensure that your room is at a comfortable temperature and that you’re in a comfortable position when lying in your bed.
Stick by the schedule!
Going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day of the week is a highly effective way of improving your quality of sleep. Regulating your sleep pattern will allow your body and mind to get used to falling asleep at an appropriate time. The average adult should get 7-8 hours sleep a night to ensure that they are properly rested and replenished, keep this in mind when planning your schedule.
Turn off those screens!
The blue light that is emitted from digital screens is a big deterrent for a good night's sleep. Try and refrain from using phones, computers and TVs an hour or two before bedtime and you will notice how much faster you can drift off. Alternatively, most smartphones offer a feature or an app which can block out the majority of the blue light when you want to start settling down.
Clear your mind!
There’s nothing worse for sleep than an active mind. Before you go to bed, do what you can to relieve your mind of whatever worries or distracting thoughts that may be running through. Take a bath, read a book, listen to music, meditate or do whatever you think works best to settle your thoughts. Deal with any responsibilities that are at the back of your mind and get things prepared for when you wake up. Once your brain activity is decreased, you will find sleeping much easier.
