How Can I Get Better Sleep?

The importance of getting good sleep can’t be understated, the average person spends roughly 1/3 of their life asleep if that tells you anything. Not much feels better than a good nights sleep. At the end of a busy and stressful day, sleep can be the best thing for you. Unfortunately more and more people these days keep developing issues sleeping well. Struggling to get sleep is not good, especially with the busy lives we lead. Even just a few hours a night makes a massive difference, you need those hours back.

Why Bother?

Sleeping is part of a healthy life so it’s important to get it figured out. Quality sleep has a lot to do with boosting your immunity, healthy regulation of your hormones, balancing your appetite, repairing your muscles and restoring your brain functioning. After enjoying a perfect sleep, you can be sure of a more successful day. We need to make sure we are treating our beds as just that, beds. But did you know how you spend time on your bed matters a lot when it comes to getting that quality sleep?

Minimize Phone in Bed

This might sound funny but it really will help. If you didn’t know, the hormone melatonin is what helps you get to sleep every night. In this digital age, it’s so common to go to sleep with your phone by your side. That blue/white light produced by your phone hinders your brain from releasing melatonin. As a result, you’ll spend way more time trying to get to sleep. Just give it a try for a few nights, see how it feels!

Don’t Just Sit On Your Bed All Day

Your bed is for sleep and sleep alone. Those people who sit in bed and work all day struggle to separate their bed from their desk. When you do these things in your bed, your body associates it with them. Meaning rather than thinking its for sleep, your body is going to expect you to be working in bed. If you ONLY sleep in your bed, you’re bound to sleep better. It may sound silly but we can promise you it truly makes a difference.

What Else?

Some nice background white noise helps a lot of people sleep, you can try things and see what works for you. Just get into healthy routines, don’t eat right before bed, etc. Try different things and see what works for you, something natural like melatonin could do the trick for you!

Going to a spa for a nice massage and other things is a great way to relieve stress. Stress is a huge cause of sleeping problems, and everyone is stressed these days. Give it a try, you won’t regret it! Contact us if you have any questions about what we can do for you!
