Improve your sleep!

 

We have heard that claim before! If only it were that easy to improve your sleep. However, we know it is not!

There is nothing worse than lying awake night after night, desperately waiting to drift off into a deep sleep. But, unfortunately, getting a great night’s rest is an issue for many people. A surprisingly large portion of the population will experience problems with getting to sleep and staying asleep. Figures show that around 35.2% of American adults get less than the recommended seven hours of sleep per night. 

Is sleep in your control? Can you really get a goodnight's rest with just some simple tips and tweaks? Click To Tweet

Going without sleep can be caused by various reasons, some of which are beyond your control. If you have a newborn baby, the chances are sleep will be a problem, but it will get better in time, and you will once again get a good night of rest. But, for other people, no matter how much they want to fall into a natural sleep, it simply does not happen.

Practical Ways to Improve Your Sleep

If you find yourself feeling really tired before bed and then unable to sleep when you lay down, there are many ways you can try to resolve this issue. Some of these solutions you may have tried in the past, and others you may never have heard of. At any rate, they may be just the thing needed to get you enjoying a full night of peaceful sleep.

Here are some practical tips to help you improve your sleep and wake up feeling rested and ready for anything:

 

Experiment with Sleep Hygiene

 

If you have never tried the sleep hygiene method before, this is well worth a try. Sleep hygiene is an excellent tool for helping to get you into a regular sleep pattern. If you would like to try sleep hygiene, you should try to make your bedroom as conducive to sleep as possible, so screen time should be limited, the room should be dark, and the temperature should be comfortable. When following the sleep hygiene method, you should avoid caffeine after mid-afternoon and stick to regular waking and sleeping times.

 

Try Natural Alternatives

 

Many people that experience sleep problems look to natural remedies to help find a solution. But, there are so many different alternative remedies available it can be hard to decide which one to choose. One popular choice is to buy CBD oil as it is believed to help with a wide range of issues, including helping people fall asleep more quickly and then stay asleep for longer. As the oil is also believed to be beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety, it may help you to feel generally calmer and relaxed, which will further help your sleep.

 

Clear Your Mind

 

If your mind often feels too busy to sleep, then finding effective ways to clear your mind of the worries of the day should help you get more rest. Keeping a journal and writing down all of your thoughts can be a helpful way to clear your mind and get your worries down on paper. It can also be beneficial to try meditation and breathing exercises to slow down your thoughts and drift into a more restful mindset.

  1. Usually light music helps me to fall in sleep. The tips you shared for improving sleep is quite helpful. Reducing screen time is definitely important.

  2. So many people are having issues with their sleep now, aren’t they? These are very good tips to try to help folks get better sleep. We use melatonin around here. Good post!

  3. “Clear Your Mind” this is where i failed the most. There are times that it’s really hard for me to not to think of a lot of stuffs before bed time. There’s just so much going on and what’s needed to be done. time is my enemy. If only there’s 36 hours per day, im good!

    Thank’s for the tip. I’ll try journaling and see if it helps.
