clothing, pillows, sheets, and mattress. It helps if the clothing is breathable and is made of a soft material. Similarly, the sheets should keep you cool. There may be some variation in the pillows and mattress that you use, however.
For example, some people may choose more supportive options because they have a physical condition that requires them to.
5. Wind Down From Your Day
Worrying about the day that has passed and the day to come can wreak havoc on sleep. That’s also true of overthinking and running through memories of a stressful day.
Practicing a mental and physical wind-down of your day can dramatically increase your odds of sleeping well. Relaxing breathing exercises, meditation, and a few stretches can help with taking the weight off your shoulders.
6. Say No To Sugary Snacks
You may already know that having a heavy meal before bed can keep you awake while it digests. What about the small snacks, though? Even then the experts recommend that you stick to lighter options such as yogurt, a bowl of low sugar cereal, or half of a turkey sandwich. Make sure to stay away from anything that contains caffeine as well.
7. Cut Down On The Liquids
It’s customary for many people to have a glass of water before going to sleep. However, it’s better to start cutting down on how much water you have directly before trying to sleep as you might keep waking up to go to the bathroom.
If you’re used to having an alcoholic drink or a cup of coffee, you’ll need to cut that out entirely. Both of those drinks will disrupt your sleep.
Bear in mind that it might be more difficult for these tips to work if you’re dealing with a sleep disorder. It’s recommended that you make a note of how often you have trouble sleeping as well as any issues that are associated with poor sleep. These issues include snoring, being jerked awake by sudden movements, incessant nightmares, and feeling as if you aren’t breathing properly. If you have any concerns, make sure to talk to your doctor so they can get to the bottom of it.
