Did you know that the average person sleeps for about one third of their life, more if you are lucky? Well, whether you are rounding out your third or you are just starting out on this journey of life, having quality sleep is important.
1. Create a relaxing atmosphere
Make a sleeping-friendly environment. This usually entails something cool, dark, and silent. It may be more difficult to fall asleep if you are exposed to light. Before going to bed, avoid using light-emitting screens for an extended period of time. To create a setting that meets your needs, consider utilizing room-darkening shades, earplugs, and a fan.
2. Make physical activity a part of your everyday routine
Regular physical activity, like working out at the gym or playing sports, can help you sleep better. However, there's a limit to how much exercise you should do right before bedtime. If you're active, avoid being active too close to nighttime. The body needs time to wind down and relax after exercise. You can't fall asleep if your muscles are still pumped full of energy. Some experts recommend staying at least two hours away from bedtime so your body has time to wind down.
3. Don’t consume caffeine late in the day
Caffeine has many benefits! A single dose can improve concentration, energy, and athletic performance. However, caffeine, when taken at the end of the day, can irritate the nervous system and prevent the body from relaxing naturally at night. If you like a cup of coffee late in the afternoon or in the evening, opt for decaffeinated coffee.
4. Take a relaxing bath or shower
Let the warm water of your shower or bath ease your mind into relaxation, so that you can get a more restful night of sleep. As a person sleeps, body temperature declines slightly, signaling the brain to release melatonin and prepare for sleep.
