The Secret to a Great Night's Sleep

The Secret to a Great Night's Sleep

"A better nights sleep means a better quality of life."

We think we can all agree with that. Apparently it is getting to sleep and staying asleep is more important than the number of hours you doze. A good night's sleep is vital to maintaining your health and well-being. Scientists can confirm that the quality of your sleep is more important than the amount of sleep.

Good sleeping habits or 'sleep hygiene' are a useful tool to ensure you're getting a good nights rest. Here are four tips to implement to improve the quality of your sleep.

  1. Going to bed at the same time each night.
    Being consistent about when you go to sleep and even when you wake up will ensure your body maintains a sleep-wake cycle. By maintaining this cycle you'll help yourself feel well rested. Allowing a consistent 8 hours for sleeping will ensure you're feeling restored when you wake up.
  2. Pay attention to what you're eating and drinking.
    Not going to bed hungry or after a heavy meal will help improve the quality of your sleep. The stimulating effects of coffee can interfere with your sleep and can take a long time to wear off. Try avoiding caffiene 10 hours before going to bed. 
  3. Ensure your sleeping space is restful & dark.
    Keeping a cool, dark and quiet room will help you fall alseep and stay asleep. Exposure to light before bed and during the night can add to the challenge of falling asleep. Getting off your phone right before bed can help you fall asleep faster and maintain a better quality of sleep throughout the night.
  4. Exercise.
    Whether it's a short walk or something more intense exercise helps your sleep quality. Spending time outside is also an excellent way to improve your sleep.

Building a restful, pre-sleep routine and sticking to it will help your quality of sleep and improve your sense of well-being. Good sleep is essential to a good quality of life and it's the small changes that help make the difference.💭
