10 Simple Ways to Sleep Better Tonight
Try going to bed and waking up at the same time each day. This will help regulate your body’s internal clock and make falling asleep a lot easier. Ideally, stick to the same sleep schedule on the weekends, too. Or, sleep in, but go to bed at the same time.
It can feel incredibly relaxing to practice a daily bedtime ritual. No matter if you prefer relaxing music, an audiobook or podcast, or reading a book – dim your lights or turn them off entirely, then kick back and chill out. Consistent evening rituals work great.
CBD oil might be the most effective natural sleep aid but don’t forget about crowd-favorites like Melatonin, Valerien Root, Magnesium, Lavender, and Passion Flower. Make sure to buy these from a trusted supplier that has a USDA Organic Certification.
Hitting that third cup of coffee? We get it, but keep in mind that too much caffeine can make it hard to fall asleep. It can help to cut back on coffee, tea, and energy drinks – especially after 5pm. So maybe skip that late night espresso and go caffeine-free in the evenings.
Any kind of exercise will help you sleep better. However, vigorous exercises help the most because they get rid of excess energy and help you feel sleepy at night. Try exercising at different times during the day or evening and see what works best for you.
Essential oils can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep better. No matter if you use a vaporizer, scented candle, or other product, we recommend trying soothing scents like Lavender, Vanilla, Jasmine, Rose, Mint, Citrus, or Sandlewood. Sweet dreams!
Reduce Light Pollution
Your body sleeps best when it’s in a dark environment, so check your room at night and reduce or remove any light sources. From a blinking internet router to a crack in the curtain that lets the streetlights shine through, make sure your room is nice and dark.
Your phone probably has a mode that reduces the blue colors on your screen, making it look more orange. This helps your brain realize it’s not high-noon but time to settle down. In short, bright, blue phone screens at night are bad for your circadian rhythm.
Feel free to eat a great dinner but try to avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and excess sugar or fat in the evening. All of those can mess with your sleep and make it hard to sleep deeply. Try a lighter dinner and eating a bit earlier and see how that feels.
Water, First Thing
As silly as it sounds, drinking a full glass of water in the morning can help you feel amazing and much more rested. that’s because our bodies can get more dehydrated during the night. So quench your thirst with some fresh water in the AM.
