Sleep Formula 39: Ways to Sleep Better
The National Sleep Foundation suggests the following to improve your sleep:
- Stick to a schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same time – including weekends.
- Expose yourself to bright light in the morning and avoid it at night. Bright morning light energizes you and prepares you for a productive day. In the evening, dim your lights when it's close to bedtime.
- Get Some Exercise. Exercise in the morning can help you get the light exposure you need to set your biological clock. Avoid vigorous exercise close to bedtime if you’re having problems sleeping.
- Establish a bedtime routine. Allow yourself enough time to wind down and relax before trying to sleep.
- Create a cool, comfortable environment without distractions. If you find that entertainment or work-related communications make you anxious, keep them out of your bedroom.
- Treat your bed as your sanctuary from the stresses of the day. If you find yourself still lying awake after 20 minutes or so, get up and do something relaxing in dim light until you are sleepy.
- Keep a "worry book" next to your bed. If you wake up because of worries, write them down with an action plan, and then you can wipe them from your mind until morning.
- Avoid caffeinated beverages, chocolate and tobacco at night.
- Avoid large meals and beverages right before bedtime.
- No nightcaps. Drinking alcohol before bed can rob you of deep sleep and can cause you to wake up too early.
- Avoid medicines that delay or disrupt your sleep. If you have trouble sleeping, ask your doctor or pharmacist if your medications might be contributing to your sleep problem.
- No late-afternoon or evening naps, unless you work nights. If you must nap, keep it under 45 minutes and before 3:00 pm.
