Instead Of Falling Asleep In Front Of The TV Or Computer
You should look at getting your TV, computer, video games and phone out of your bedroom. You should also turn them off and stay off them for 30 minutes before you go to bed. This is important because of the light emitted from these devices has been found to stimulate the brain and will make it harder to get a good night’s sleep.
Instead Of A Glass Of Wine, Marijuana Or Chocolate Before Bed
You should look at drinking a mixture of warm unsweetened almond milk, a few drops of stevia and a teaspoon of vanilla. The vanilla should be the real thing and not an imitation. This will help to increase the serotonin in the brain which will help you to sleep. You can also try a natural supplement which contains CBD, melatonin, GABA and magnesium to help you get to sleep. It’s a lot better than chocolate or weed.
Instead Of Taking A Nap To Make Up For Disturbed Sleep
You should try to power through to bedtime and get your body used to a regular sleep pattern. You should then try and maintain your regular sleep schedule. You can do this by going to bed at the same time each night and waking up at the same time in the morning including over the weekend.
Instead Of Going To Bed Angry Or Worried
You need to try and fix any emotional problems before you head to bed. You can put off worried by texting, emailing or setting a reminder for something the next day. Additionally, you should forgive the other person first and you may end the argument that is causing your sleep issues.
Instead Of Watching The Clock While Trying To Sleep
You should move the clock to a position where you cannot easily see it. If you wake up in the middle of the night, you should avoid looking at the clock. This is due to the fact that checking the time will make you anxious and this will make it harder to get back to sleep. If you are unable to fall asleep or return to sleep easily, you should get up and go to another room where you do something relaxing until you feel tired.
Instead Of Waking To Every Noise You Hear
You should try sound therapy which will help you create a peaceful mood and lull you to sleep. Some of the soothing sounds you can try include wind chimes, nature sounds, soft music or a fan. There are studies which show that slower classical music or any music with 60 to 80 beats per minute will help you sleep. If you have a partner that snores, you should try wearing ear plugs to lower the effect of the noise.
Instead Of Finishing Last Minute Work Or Watching The News In Bed
You should use your bed for sleeping and sexual activity only. Sexual activity will release many natural hormones as well as release muscle tension and boost a sense of well-being. It has been found that adults with a healthy sex life will sleep better.
