✅ Get a good night's rest and wake up refreshed in the morning: We've got some helpful tips on how to get your day started right🔅
Getting the right amount of sleep is important for your health. Sleep deprivation can lead to a weakened immune system and decreased productivity. The best way to improve your sleep is by sticking to a regular schedule and avoiding smoking. You can also try taking a walk or reading a book. If you still can’t sleep, you can also try some relaxation techniques before bed.
Stop Using Your Smartphone Before Bed
✨ 🌷Proper sleep environment helps you fall asleep quickly
Doing something mind-numbing while you’re lying in bed is not a strategy for a good night’s sleep. Searching for new Tweet-length thoughts, answering emails, and scrolling through Facebook at night will only serve to keep your mind active. You’ll likely end up tossing and turning and experiencing a night of less restful sleep. The same goes for reading electronic books or looking at your phone before bed. If you absolutely can’t stop yourself from checking social media, try keeping your phone out of sight (away from your bed!) and headphones in your ears so that you can’t hear alerts and notifications.
Stick to a Regular Sleep Schedule
🍃Deep sleep for increased memory and mental clarity
As important as it is to get the right amount of sleep, it is just as important to know when to wake up. Just because it's midnight doesn’t mean it’s time to get up. Many people assume that they need to sleep during the ‘off-hours, but in fact, sleep is as important during the day as it is at night. When you are sleeping, your body is recovering and repairing. If you are constantly rushing through the day to catch up on your hours of sleep, you are likely to be sleep-deprived. It’s important to follow a regular sleep schedule and try to stick to it. If you are a morning person, you might try napping in the afternoon or early evening. If you have an afternoon slump, try staying up a little later.
✨ 💧 Breathing exercises to lower stress and anxiety ✨
Exercising on a regular basis can help you sleep better and feel more rested. It has also been shown to improve sleep quality and length. One small study found that people with sleep problems who exercised for one week slept better and longer. There is no one “right” amount of exercise to reap the benefits. Short, intense bursts of activity are likely to keep you awake, while longer, more relaxed activities will help you nod off. Try to get your daily exercise in before you go to sleep. It can help you feel less sluggish and more awake during the day.
