When it comes to sleep, it’s not just quantity that matters, it’s quality. How you feel during your waking hours depends greatly on how well you sleep at night. Similarly your sleep habits and daily lifestyle can affect the quality of your nightly sleep. The following tips will help you improve your sleep quality so you can be productive, mentally sharp, emotionally balanced, and full of energy all day long.
Tip one: Keep a regular sleep schedule.
By going to bed and getting up at the same time every day, you’ll feel much more refreshed and energized than if you sleep the same number of hours at different times, because it helps you set your body’s internal clock and optimize the quality of your sleep. Also don’t nap for too long in the afternoon, instead 15 to 20 minutes’ napping will be enough if you’ve slept well at night. On the contrary, with too much napping in the afternoon you may fave difficulty in falling asleep or wake up later in the night and have trouble getting back to sleep.
Tip two: Get regular exercise.
Exercise speeds up your metabolism and elevates body temperature. You can exercise in the morning or afternoon, but not too close to bedtime. Relaxing, low impact exercises such as yoga, walking or gentle stretching can help promote sleep. Just keep in mind that exercise is not a quick fix. Consistency is vitally important.
Tip three: Adjust your daytime eating habits.
>Cut down on coffee, tea and alcohol in the hours leading up to your bedtime.
>Try to make dinnertime earlier in the evening, and avoid spicy, rich foods within two hours of bed.
>Avoid drinking too many liquids in the evening, as they will result in frequent bathroom trips throughout the night.
Tip four: Improve your sleep environment.
First prepare your bed comfortably. You should have enough room to stretch and turn. If you often wake up with a sore back or an aching neck, you may need to invest in new bedding sets, comforters or a try a different pillow.
