Seven Tips to Try and Get a Better Night's Sleep

Jul 28, 2008
During the day, we do so much thinking and working that at night, all we want is to have a really good night rest so we are recharged and ready for the next day. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to get that needed rest because of quite a few different things. The following list is a series of tips that are highly recommended when trying to get to sleep. If you follow them and really try and focus on them, you'll find that you sleep better at night and are more recharged and rejuvenated in the morning. Here they are:

1. Keep regular hours. Try and go to bed at the same time every single night and wake up at the same time every single night. By developing this cycle, you'll fall asleep easier and sleep better than if you are sporadic with your hours of sleep.

2. Use the bed for sleeping and sex, nothing else. If you associate your bed with reading, work, and all of that, your body will have a harder time using it for the things that it is actually meant for.

3. Stop looking at the clock. The more you look at the clock, the more anxious you are going to get that you are not falling asleep. You're going to get worried that you won't have enough sleep for the next day and that'll just prevent you from getting to bed. Thus, you got even less sleep than you would have.

4. If you just can't sleep, get up and do something very simple in a dimly lit room for a half hour. It'll start to tire you out and once you're feeling a bit tired, you'll fall asleep real easily.

5. If you're hungry, eat something. But, don't make it a huge five course meal. Have something small and light that won't keep your body up all night digesting it. Give your body something to hold it over without eating for an army.

6. Keep the room at a constant temperature. If it's too cold or warm, you won't sleep as well.

7. Finally...Have a good bed. Having a good mattress will definitely help to increase the amount of sleep you get and how well you sleep. If your body hurts, consider getting a different mattress.

There are no secrets to getting better sleep. Whether you sleep for four hours a night or you sleep for ten hours a night, the trick to getting good sleep is to know that you need to sleep. By developing a schedule and really working on it, you'll find that over time, your body gets tired at that time. Furthermore, by having a good bed to sleep on, you'll find your body grows comfortable easier and then, when you do fall asleep, it stays still. Moving around a lot prevents you from sleeping as deep as you can which limits the amount of rest you get. Following these tips are suggestions, but they definitely seem to work for a lot of people.
