Keeping a consistent sleep schedule contributes to better health and wellness. Achieving adequate sleep is easier than you think. From living with petds, I’ve adapted and simplified my nightly routine. Today I share tips to help you get better shut eye each night.
1. Practice a bedtime ritual
A relaxing routine before bed helps separate your sleep time from activities that cause excitement. Practice relaxing activities like taking a bubble bath or turning off technology 30 minutes before bedtime will help you achieve deeper sleep.
2. Exercise daily
Vigorous exercise is best, but any amount of physical activity attributes to restful sleep. Exercising at any time of day is beneficial.
3. Ensure your mattress and pillows are comfortable
The typical lifespan of a mattress is 10 years. Your mattress and pillows should be cool, comfortable and supportive.
