With the hustle and bustle of today’s lifestyle, it’s no secret that we’re looking for new tips and tricks to sink into deep sleep more easily. It’s possible, but it’s going to require effort and commitment, so if you’re ready, check out our suggestions below.
WIND IT DOWN
Create a bedtime routine that puts your mind and body at ease. Taking a warm bath before bed has proven to help ease people to sleep. You could also try the 4-7-8 breathing technique to steady out your airflow. Alternatively, listen to Endy’s wind down playlist.
UNPLUG YOUR MIND
In the lead up to bedtime, avoid watching content that will over engage your brain and shut down your electronics – blue light emitted from your devices is the enemy of sleep!
EAT LIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT!
Avoid eating heavy food and drink to increase the quality of sleep you can achieve. Staying hydrated is important for a restful sleep, but overdoing it can also break your sleep pattern when you wake up to use the bathroom.
LENGTH DOES MATTER
On average adults need 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep to achieve better sleep health. Paying attention to how much sleep your mind and body needs plays a key role on your mood, energy, productivity and overall health.
SLEEP FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
Ensure your room is cool, your bed is comfortable and your pillow is conducive to a good night’s sleep. Too hot to sleep? Give these tips a go.
Dreaming That Your Teeth Fall Out
In an ideal world, everyone would be dreaming about fantastical scenes and interactions that allow us to wake up with a smile on our faces. That, however, isn’t the reality for many dreamers.
