10 Best Sleeping Tips
Exercise--- 30 minutes 4 times per week
will improve sleep quality. Cherries---This fruit is rich in melatonin which helps
the body regulate the sleep cycle.
Same Time Ritual--- Try to go to bed at
the same time every night.
Chill Out ---- A cool bedroom lowers
your core body temperature, which initiates sleepiness.
Relax--- A warm bath with lavender or
rose oil will calm the nerves, and raise your body temperature to help you fall
Sheet Quality --- Choose sheets that
you love. Crisp and cool, go with percale. Prefer soft and cozy?Then go with sateen or flannel.A long lasting linen is an Egyptian cotton.
Lights off--- Turn off the TV or
computer. Face the alarm clock away from you so you don’t see the time during
the night and then start thinking of the day ahead.
Sleep Sideways--- Snoring, besides
bothering a partner, can wake you up. Airways are most blocked when on your
back, so sleep on your side.
Cut Coffee—Cut out coffee or other
caffeine by 2 pm. It may be difficult to cut out caffeine when you hit your
afternoon slump, but take a walk or drink a glass of water instead. )Mattress—Choose the mattress that is
not too hard or too soft.Flip and
rotate your mattress every few months to avoid lumps or sags.
