Top Tips For Getting A Better Night's Sleep

Struggling to sleep? Waking up and still tired? We’ve all been there! But we have some amazing tips to help you get some extra ZZZZZZs. Not only does getting a good night’s rest make you ready to conquer your day, but it also benefits your physical and mental health and your ability to think and learn. Even though we are all living in very difficult times and struggling to find peace, we want to make sure you are able to relax at night and get the rest you deserve. To do that we have come up with our top tips for preparing your mind and body for sleep that will have you getting in those eight hours in no time.

Top Sleep Tips 

1. Maintain regular bedtime and awakening time.

Being consistent with your sleeping patterns can help with long-term sleep quality. Try getting into the habit of waking up and going to bed at similar times. Soon enough you won’t even need an alarm.

2. Use a weighted blanket.

The comforting pressure from weighted blankets prepare your body for rest by calming your breathing and heart rate, helping you to relax enough to get to sleep. The Beautifully Healthy Weighted Blanket uses the deep touch pressure stimulation technique to treat stress and sleeplessness.

3. Avoid caffeinated beverages after noon.
When you consume caffeine late in the day, it stimulates your nervous system and can stop your body from naturally relaxing at night. If you are craving a cup of coffee in the evenings, try switching to tea. The Love Tea Organic Sleep Tea is made with a carefully selected blend of organic herbs to help support a deeper, more rejuvenating sleep cycle.

4. Avoid Alcohol.
Alcohol is known to cause or increase the symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea. By having a couple of drinks at night, you are negatively affecting your sleep and hormones.
5. Take a magnesium supplement.

Magnesium can improve relaxation, enhance sleep quality and reduce the time it takes to fall asleep. Nature's Way Magnesium Sleep Well Tablets are a great option for improving sleep quality as they work to relieve stress and mild anxiety.

6. Don’t sleep during the day.
We all love a good nap but sleeping in the daytime can actually confuse your internal clock, meaning you may struggle to sleep at night.
7. Exercise, but not within 3 hours of bedtime.
Exercising during the day is of course beneficial to both your mind and body. But if you are exercising too close to your bedtime, it can negatively impact your heart rate and sleep cycle.
8. Finish eating 2-3 hours before bedtime.
Eating a few hours before you go to sleep raises concerns of acid reflux and indigestion. Both of these can make it hard to fall asleep.
9. Keep the bedroom cool, dark and quiet.
Your bedroom environment and setup are key factors in getting a good night’s rest. Try and minimise external noise, light and aim for a cooler temperature in your bedroom. If you are struggling to block out light, the DREAMLIGHT Ease Eye Mask For Sleep And Relaxation is perfect for achieving pure darkness.

10. Create a relaxing night-time routine.
One hour before bed, turn off all technology and dim all your lights. Perhaps do a relaxation exercise and/or have a hot bath. The EpZen Sleep Magnesium Bath Crystals are designed to assist with sleep quality and will help you fully relax before bed.
