5 Tips for Better Sleep

5 Tips for Better Sleep

Sleep has been said to improve your memory, boost your immune system, strengthen your heart, and bring you to a better mood! When you don't get enough sleep it can result in you waking up groggy or restless. Here are some tips to wake yup refreshed, alert, and ready for the day!

  1. Power Down

Turn off your TV, cellphone, tablet, and any device that uses blue-light. The soft blue glow from these devices could signal to your brain that it’s time to be awake instead of asleep.

  1. Set Your Body Clock

Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. This way your body will get into a healthy routine with a snooze-wake schedule. In time, you’ll be able to fall asleep quicker and wake up with no problem!

  1. Rethink Your Drink

Some people think that drinking alcohol makes them sleepy when it gets closer to bedtime. Except after the initial effects of alcohol wear off, you wake up more often throughout the night than if you chose to drink warm milk or chamomile tea.

  1. Lower The Lights

Dim the lights around your home 2 to 3 hours before your initial bed time. Your brain will receive the signal to make melatonin. Melatonin is the hormone that helps bring on sleep. If you’re a fan of reading before bed, only use a 15-watt bulb for light.

  1. White Noise

Little noises throughout the night can wake us up. The faucet dripping, nearby traffic, or your neighbor’s dog barking. Use an air conditioner, a fan, or a white noise machine to keep the unwanted noises away. You can also try ear plugs!
