Getting a quality night’s sleep is vital for staying healthy and happy. A lack of sleep can be damaging to your mind as well as your body, particularly for long stretches at a time.
Good sleep improves your brain performance, health, and mood. Good sleep is more than just hours spent in bed. To get quality sleep, you must ensure that your sleep is comfortable and uninterrupted – anything less than that will be time wasted.
If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, try one (or all) of the five tips below:
1. Schedule Your Sleep
Do you remember when you were younger, and you had a bedtime? That was to create a healthy sleeping schedule and avoid you bouncing off the walls at 2 am. The same thing applies to adults, the only difference is that instead of bouncing off the walls – you’re tossing and turning.
By going to bed by 10 pm, you’re giving your body a chance to rest and recover from your hectic day. It also gives you 8 hours of solid sleep and will have you waking up refreshed and ready to take on the new day.
2. Avoid Stimulants
Going to bed full or hungry are two extremes that you should try to avoid. That applies to heavy and rich meals too – which is a sure-fire way to guarantee indigestion problems throughout the night.
Most importantly, you must avoid stimulants in the evenings and before bed. That includes caffeine and nicotine, as they will keep you up instead of lulling you off to a peaceful sleep. Stimulants take hours to wear off and drastically interfere with your sleep.
3. Natural Intervention
This next one may surprise you, but low-dose edibles can be super beneficial for your sleeping habits. Edibles are items of food that contain one or more cannabinoids that are intended to provide a therapeutic dose to help with whatever is ailing you.
Edibles can be consumed for insomnia, chronic pain, or stress – among other things. Hemp-derived delta 9 gummies are a safe and healthy solution to common or complex sleep troubles.
4. Create A Sleep Sanctuary
Having a peaceful environment to sleep in is crucial for achieving quality sleep at night. To create the best environment to fall asleep in, one must do a few things.
Firstly, ensure that your bedroom is clean and clutter-free. Only have what you need in your room like a bed, pedestals, a mirror, and a dresser. Anything else could factor into an increase of your stress levels and prevents you from sleeping well.
5. Daily Exercise
Experts suggest avoiding vigorous exercise within an hour of bedtime because it raises your heart rate, adrenaline levels, and body temperature. However, meditative movements and stretching have been found to vastly improve sleep quality.
Do light exercises before bed and get your mind and body in the perfect position to rest for the night. Sleep should be a pleasurable and restful experience; if yours is not, then you are doing something wrong.
