5 Easy Tip To Get The Best Sleep Ever
Many of us wrestle with not getting enough sleep every night, but is the sleep we get any good? While it’s important to get enough sleep, better sleep is far more important. Having healthy sleep habits will a profound impact on the quality of life.
Following these five sleep practices on a consistent basis will ensure a much better quality of life:
Consistence Is A Major Key:
Stick to a consistent sleep schedule with the same bedtime and wake time, even on the weekends. Studies have confirmed this helps to regulate your body’s clock and could help you fall asleep and stay asleep all thru the night.
Make It A Ritual:
It may be good to practice a relaxing bedtime ritual.

Avoid Nap Time:
Naps If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Power napping may help you get through the day, but if you find that you can’t fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help.
Step Your Feng Shui Game Up:
Evaluate your room. Design your sleep environment to establish the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be cool – between 60 and 67 degrees. Your bedroom should also be free from any noise that can disturb your sleep. Finally, your bedroom should be free from any light. Check your room for noises or other distractions. This includes a bed partner’s sleep disruptions such as snoring. Consider using blackout curtains, eye shades, ear plugs, “white noise” machines, humidifiers, fans and other devices.
Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most good quality mattresses. Have comfortable pillows and make the room attractive and inviting for sleep but also free of allergens that might affect you and objects that might cause you to slip or fall if you have to get up
