You probably know that a good night’s sleep can boost your energy and productivity during the daytime. Your sleep patterns directly affect your mental and physical help, yet many find it hard to get quality rest. However, you may be more in control of your sleep than you realize. These tips can help you avoid tossing and turning all night.
Follow a routine – and stick to it
The only alarm clock you really need is your internal one. Listen to your body when you’re tired and establish a routine that involves going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day. Limit sleeping in and napping and your body will naturally adjust to the routine you set.
Check your environment
Relaxation goes hand-in-hand with sleep. Keep your room cool, noise-free and comfortable and prepare your sleeping area as a place for total relaxation. Take a look at the environment around you and make the necessary adjustments.
Control your exposure to light
Exposure to light during the day and night can have a significant impact when you lay your head down at the end of the day. During the daytime, be around as much natural light as possible, signifying to your mind and body that this is time to be awake and productive. Once the sun sets, avoid bright screens such as your phone or television, which can be more stimulating than relaxing.
