8 Tips on How to Get Better Sleep for Improved Health & Wellbeing


Source: AsapTHOUGHT

Once again, our friends at ASAP Thought have some sound advice — this time, it's on how to get better sleep to improve health and quality of your life.

While most studies suggest that it's best to get 7-8 hours of sleep per night, most don't talk about all the different factors that affect the quality of your sleep. In other words, not all sleep is created equal.

Here are 8 Tips That Will Help You Get More Restful, High Quality Sleep

1) Take power naps. A “power nap” is a short 20-30 minute nap that refreshes you, but does not make you wake up groggy, because you don't enter deeper levels of sleep. Also, power naps are short enough to not disturb your night sleep routine. Also, studies show that people who take power naps — of 20 – 30 minutes — at least three times per week in the afternoon, reduce their risk of heart disease by one-third.

2) Cut down on (or cut out) alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes. They all have been shown to have side effects that disturb your natural, healthy sleep patterns.

3) Get into a sleep time routine. Don't sleep in on the weekends. If you feel tired, you can always take a power nap, but keeping your sleep routine the same gets your body into a healthy sleep rhythm.

4) Stop staring at bright screens late at night. They trick your brain into thinking that it's still daytime. Stop using computers or TVs at least one hour before bed, and turn them off for the night — especially if they are in your bedroom.

Read about another key benefit of reducing your screen watching time — lowering EMFs.

5) Develop a nighttime pre-sleep ritual. Do a few stretches, take a short walk or read a book. Create a pattern that will tell your body it's time to wind down.

6) Have a morning ritual you that you look forward to. If you have something you want to do in the morning, you're less likely to hit the snooze button.

7) Use a smart alarm. If you can wake up to a fun sound or your favorite music, you can begin your day in a good mood or even by dancing out of bed.

8) Make your bed a no-work zone. By making your bed all about sleeping, you train your body to associate it with sleep and to go into a sleep state when you're in it.
