6 Tips For A Better Nights Sleep

Exercise In The Day:

Firstly, Exercise In The Day Or Evening. 

Frequent exercise can help you sleep better, but you should avoid exercising too close to bedtime as it might make it difficult for you to fall asleep. 

My first spinning class is booked for this evening. I can not believe I have not exercised for over two weeks with being ill. 

Secondly, Have A Cut Off Point For Drinking Caffeine Or Alcohol. 

Say 7pm. Unless a special occasion or a night out. Reduce your intake of caffeine and alcohol because both can disturb your sleep. 

Limit your alcohol consumption and avoid drinking caffeine in the late afternoon or evening. Try drinking water after a set time.

Thirdly, Try To Control Your Stress Levels. 

Especially at night. Try not to think of things that make you angry or upset. Anxiety and stress can prevent you from falling asleep. 

For more support, try relaxing activities like deep breathing or meditation, or think about speaking with a health professional. 

Don't think about exercise though, it can get you ready to work out!! I have done this many times.

6 Tips For A Better Nights Sleep:

Fourthly, Put Your Phone Down Before Bed. 

Avoid using electronic devices right before bed. Including that smartphones and tablets might disrupt your body's natural sleep-wake cycle. At least an hour before going to bed, avoid using electronics. 

You might see something that you can't get off your mind or stress you out. Engage in relaxing activities during the time you would be on electrical items. 

Such as taking a warm bath, reading a book, or listening to calming music before bedtime. This helps signal to your body that it's time to sleep.

Fifth, Make Your Bed Comfortable And Peaceful. Warm And Cozy. 

Establish a peaceful, quiet, and cool sleeping environment in your bedroom. Add soft cushions and blankets, and spend money on a supportive mattress that is comfortable. Invest in pillows that make you feel comfortable.

Sixth, Try To Switch Off And Think Nice Thoughts. 

Try to relax, count sheep, or daydream nice and relaxing thoughts. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This helps regulate your body's natural sleep-wake cycle and can improve the quality of your sleep.

Each has various sleeping demands, therefore it's crucial to figure out what suits you the most. So what do you think about these 6 Tips For A Better Night's Sleep?

When you reach your forties unless you are very lucky, you can easily start to gain weight. My weight fluctuates like a yo-yo since reaching 40. Then when you get to late 40's you might have 2 decisions to make like I have:

Firstly, buy a whole new wardrobe of clothes (nice idea) that fit properly and comfortably. Or secondly, try and lose weight. (Perhaps also buy some new clothes!). Whichever decision you make, it needs to be the right one for you.

Last But Not Least, The Importance Of Sleep Campaign. 

By 10 pm I am always yawning, ready for my bed. Once I am tucked up in bed I do not like to be disturbed before 6 am. 

I try to get around 8 hours of sleep a night but it is not always possible with a family and a dog.

As soon as my head hits the pillow I can fall straight to sleep. My Husband sometimes laughs at how quickly I can fall asleep. 

He can be walking upstairs a minute or two behind and I have already dropped off. I do not always get a good night’s sleep though. Our mattress is old and sometimes the springs stick into you. 

Some mornings I can wake up with pains when the mattress has been taken out of me. Importance Of Sleep Campaign.
