10 Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep

8zuamnx1yhs-kari-shea (2).jpgHello Bloggers,

The average person needs 8-10 hours sleep a day, so how do you ensure you get a good night’s sleep?  Here are 10 tips that may help:

  1. Get out of bed at the same time every day. This sets the circadian rhythm.
  2. Nap for only 20 minutes, avoid naps initially.
  3. If you wake up groggy, you need to increase sleep time.
  4. Expose yourself to light in the morning, but avoid bright light before bed.
  5. Avoid exercising within 2 hours of going to bed.
  6. Avoid heavy evening meals.
  7. Avoid caffeine after 2 pm, or at the latest 5 pm (varies from person to person).
  8. Set up calming pre-bed ritual: bath, reading, calming music, herbal tea, meditation, stretching.
  9. Don’t keep a TV in your bedroom.
  10. Avoid electronics at least 1 hour before bed.

Hope these tips help. Sweet dreams everyone!
