tips on getting a good nights sleep

If you wake up in the morning feeling more tired then you did the night before it can be incredibly frustrating. Tiredness is common in many people, especially if you’re very busy and have a lot on your plate. Constant tiredness however can be a sign that you’re not getting as good a night’s sleep as you’d like. This could be down to a number of factors all of which in the long run can affect your energy levels. This article will point out some of the most common so you get a good night’s sleep and wake up in the morning full of energy raring to go.

Avoid bright lights before bed

If you find it hard to get to sleep then it’s best to avoid bright lights emitting devices for 1-2 hours before bed. When it’s dark your brain starts to release the hormone melatonin which helps to regulate your sleep wake cycle and makes you sleepy. If you’re spending the

majority of the night browsing Facebook and Twitter or watching TV your brain is constantly being exposed to bright light and is staying alert, thus making it hard for you to get to sleep.dont use a mobile phone at night if you have trouble sleeping

Keep your body in rhythm

There’s nothing your body loves more than a good rhythm. If you’re constantly changing the time you go to sleep and wake up this can be confusing and leaves your body clock in limbo.

Exercise regularly

If you exercise regularly you’ll find you’ll start to feel better and more awake during the day. This is due to exercise helping to speed up your metabolism, elevating your body temperature and stimulating the hormone cortisol. Try to avoid exercising really close to bedtime though as this can make it harder to get to sleep.

Clear your head before bed

One of the main issues in getting to sleep is when things are on your mind. If all you can think about is what you need to do at work tomorrow or the argument with your boyfriend then your brain is not able to take a step back and adapt into sleep mode. This can end in you spending the whole night tossing and turning without being able to relax enough to switch off.
