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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
