Are you tired of your current routine? Feeling unmotivated and groggy? You’re definitely not alone. Here are five sleep habits you should consider taking on.
Do your research
First and foremost, acknowledging sleep deprivation, snoring, or general tiredness is vital to creating a revamped routine. To start, it's important to do your own research, and if you have snoring worries, read articles thatanswer all your sleep apnea and snoring questions. Or if you’re already aware that you snore, investing in ananti-snore mouthpiece is a surefire way to improve your quality of sleep.
Take control of your mornings
Not everyone is a morning person, and we get that. But it’s worth a shot to try conquering mornings instead of letting yourself get crushed by them. A good tactic is to have a plan for first thing in the morning and to get yourself excited for it the night before. For example, plan to make yourself a nice cup of coffee and a special breakfast, or if you’re currently binge watching a show - save the next episode for the morning.
The comfier, the better
If you’re tossing and turning in bed, you might want to consider updating your bedroom setting. Maybe purchase a new mattress, pillow, or even bedroom decor that helps create a cozy and calming environment.
Avoid those naps
For the sake of consistency, it’s best to avoid those mid day naps. As tempting as they are, naps can interfere with your sleep routine and make you feel even more tired and unmotivated throughout the day. It’s tough to avoid them now more than ever, but a trick is to journal your daily activities, including your naps, and see how you can improve. If you do, however, need that afternoon snooze, many studies suggest keeping them short, around 20 to 30 minutes.
Relax before bed
Having a proper wind down routine readies you for a good night’s rest. Many of us are on our phones before bed or leave a TV show running while trying to sleep. We want to avoid this completely. Replace electronics with meditation, baths, books, and stretches. It sounds boring but it’s highly effective in promoting quality sleep.
Ultimately, you know your body and mind better than anyone else. If certain sleep habits have worked for you in the past, try incorporating it back into your routine. If you have any sleep tips that you’ve discovered to help with your daily grind, let us know by tagging @BestMorningEver on Twitter!
