sleep hygiene step 1 develop a relaxing
bedtime ritual when you think about it
we all learn to sleep by routine when we
were really little our parents gave us
baths read us books tucked us in got us that
extra glass of water all in the name of
good sleep now that you’re older you’re
going to have to develop a routine of
your own whether it’s a cup of decaf tea
and a chapter from a book or bath in 15
minutes and mellow yoga of course there
are some activities that should be kept
out of a bedtime ritual don’t drink
alcohol before bed it might help you
fall asleep but chances are you’ll wake
up in the middle of the night don’t
exercise two hours before bedtime sure
it gets your blood flowing
but it’ll amp you out mentally step 2
maintain a regular sleep and wake
schedule now you don’t have to wake up
at exactly 702 and go to bed at 10:53
every night that’s a bit on the neurotic
side but do try to wake up and go to bed
at generally the same time six days a
week according to doctors at Harvard
University this will help set your
internal clock so that even on those
rare days when your schedule is thrown
off you’ll be able to get right back on
track and avoid what doctors call a
sleep hangover step 3 stop watching your
clock studies show that people who
constantly look at their clock are less
likely to fall asleep easily why well
laying there thinking it’s 1103 I have
to be up in 6 hours and 57 minutes
stresses you out so try to keep some
distance between you and that alarm
clock that way those blinking numbers
will quit mocking you and you’ll sleep
easier step 4 create an optimal sleep
environment a Mayo Clinic study found
that people sleep best in dark quiet
cool environments with all the benefits
of sleep it’s worth investing in
blackout blinds comfortable earplugs and
a fan or air conditioning the more
comfortable you are physically ah the
better you’ll sleep
step 5 unplug make your bedroom a tech
free zone. I know but research those that
electronics interfere with sleep because
it’s easy to get distracted by them
checking your email right before bed
could add more stress watching TV or
movies makes it harder to sleep and
getting sucked into say Pinterest right
before bed could keep you up for hours
