Tips to Get Better Sleep - Health Tips


Ensure Your Sleeping Environment is Comfortable

Make sure your bedroom is comfortable for resting and sleeping. Therefore, make sure you can control the lighting, temperature, and noise in your bedroom to ensure you can fall asleep quickly.

If you usually sleep with your pet in your bedroom, you can move the pet to another room, especially if it disturbs you during the night.


Use a Comfortable Bed

It is hard to get a good night’s rest if your mattress is too hard or too soft or if your bed is too old or small. Invest in a Tempurpedic mattress topper to help you get a great night’s sleep.


Exercise Regularly

Do moderate exercises regularly, such as walking or swimming, to reduce your stress and relieve the tension built up in your body. Avoid doing vigorous exercises, such as going to the gym or running, just before your bedtime. This is because vigorous exercises can keep you awake.


Do Not Consume Too Much Caffeine

Reduce the caffeine in colas, energy drinks, coffee, or tea, especially before you go to bed. Caffeine can make it difficult to fall asleep and prevent deep sleep. You can take warm milk or herbal tea instead.


 Avoid Overindulging

Do not take too much alcohol or food in the evening because it can interfere with your sleep patterns. Even though alcohol can help you fall asleep quickly, it will disturb your sleep during the night.


 Avoid Smoking at Night

If you smoke at night, you will have a problem falling asleep and you will wake up regularly. Nicotine may interrupt your sleep.


 Relax Before You Go to Bed

Take a warm bath, do some yoga, and listen to relaxing to relax your body and mind. Your GP can also recommend a relaxation CD to help you relax.
