The Habit You Might Need To Break To Sleep Better!
Light Exposure at Bedtime
Sometimes, exposure to electronics at night can make it harder for you to be able to sleep. One suggestion might be to put away electronics, or minimize them the best you can, at least two hours before planning on going to sleep.
Not sticking to a routine
Sticking to a routine and a structured schedule is essential for sleep hygiene, especially if you’re not sleeping on a consistent schedule. You can try planning out your days, even down to the hours, so that you’re aware of how you manage your time and so you’re not stuck with a list of things to do at midnight.
Caffeine or alcohol consumption
Caffeine consumption past a specific time can hinder your ability to fall asleep early. It’s important to make sure you plan your caffeine consumption, as it can keep you up at night and make you feel even more tired the following day. Alcohol consumption can also hinder the quality of sleep that you experience.
Stress can cause you to stay awake with your thoughts at night, and that’s never fun! Developing a nighttime routine where you stretch and meditate before bed could significantly enhance your chances of falling asleep earlier and faster.
