Sleep like a baby

You do know that sleep is one of the best medicines for a healthy life.

Besides the room you sleep in, the bed you lay down on, the sheets you choose, the fact is that there are a few tips you can follow to have a better night sleep, that will surely help you out:

Here they are:

Get to sleep before midnight

Preferably by 10pm. It makes a massive difference when you are able to get into bed at 10. You see you’ll get wake up feeling so refreshed and energized.

Don’t drink water 3 hours before bedtime

If you wake up multiple times a night to go to the bathroom, this will change your sleep drastically.

Black out your room

When it’s dark, our bodies produce more of the hormone melatonin which is imperative for sleep. Even the smallest amount of light can cause our bodies to stop producing it and can keep us in a lighter state of sleep.

Don’t eat close to bedtime

If our bodies have to digest food while we’re trying to fall asleep, it’s going to be much harder to get some good Z’s. If you must, eat something raw like fruits or veggies before bed because they are more quickly digested.

Unplug your electronics

Anything that is plugged into a wall (even if turned off) gives of an electromagnetic field (EMF). Certain EMFs have been shown to majorly interfere with sleep, especially if they’re right by our heads.

Don’t look at screens close to bedtime

This one is especially hard because many of us love checking our social media sites right before bedtime. The light from computer or cell phone screens messes with our production of melatonin, which is the hormone that regulates our sleep/wake cycles.

Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night

Having too little or too much sleep can cause stress on our bodies, adrenal fatigue, and increase the risk of disease. For most people, 7-8 hours of sleep is the sweet spot.

Use your bedroom for sleep only

If you watch TV, do school, eat, and play video games in our bedrooms then we probably aren’t getting great sleep. You want your bodies to associate your bedroom with sleep so that when you lay down for the night, that will be it’s natural response.

That’s it!

Don’t let the bed bugs bite!

Snug dreams everyone!
