Tips For Getting Better Sleep

Feeling well-rested when you wake up in the morning is a key component when it comes to your mood, attitude, and productivity. Sure, coffee can provide a jolt of energy but that's no substitute for a good night of sleep.

If you're interested in getting better sleep at night, try out one (or all) of these tips!

1. Limit Caffeine Consumption 
Coffee and energy drinks can provide enough energy to power you through the workday. However, consuming these drinks too late in the afternoon may keep you up at night.
 It can take 6 hours for caffeine to leave your body. With this in mind, aim to have your last cup of coffee at least 6 hours before you plan on going to bed.

2. Establish a Night Time Routine
Having a consistent schedule at night not only organizes your time, it will also prime your mind to get ready for bed. The activities that you build your routine with should be things that are relaxing and/or things that will make the next morning easier for you (like ironing your outfit for tomorrow or pre-packing your lunch).

3. Reduce Screen Time
Studies show that technology has a negative effect on sleep quality. This can be due to the constant stimulation that smartphones provide. Another factor is the blue lights that most gadgets use. Blue lights disrupt sleep quality because they prevent the human body from producing adequate melatonin.
Experts suggest turning off your phone at least one hour before going to bed. If turning off your phone sounds impractical, perhaps it would be more reasonable to stop using social media apps and games when it's time to get ready for bed.

4. Invest In A New Mattress
If you have a solid nighttime routine and you're still not getting a good night of sleep, it may be your mattress that is to blame. Getting a new mattress is easier than ever,

5. Do Some Exercise
Having a consistent exercise routine will add numerous benefits to your life. When it comes to sleeping, exercise is a top way to release excess energy that you may have accumulated during the day. Some people find success working out early in the day. Other people may prefer to work out in the evening. Whichever you decide, you are sure to get a peaceful night of sleep as your body restores itself.

6. Avoid Eating Before Bed 
Having a meal before laying down to sleep may keep you awake at night. That's because instead of resting, your digestive system will still be working. 
Spicy foods are shown to disrupt sleep at night, too. It would be best to enjoy these foods at least an hour before bedtime. 

Hopefully, these tips and suggestions help you to get better sleep! Good luck!
