Better Sleep

Sleep is essentially for everything. If I have a bad sleep I usually have a slow morning but become better throughout the day. Recently, I have had sleeping trouble because of change of schedule and new living conditions. Here are some ways to get better sleep.

  1. Sleep Schedule– Having a consistent sleeping schedule creates good sleeping results. You can plan to get as much sleep as you want and need.
  2. Sleeping Eye Mask– Most nights I sleep with an eye mask. It helps keep my eyes from twitching during REM sleep.
  3. Soft or Meditation Music– This is helpful if you can not sleep in silence.
  4. Reduce Lights– Sometimes sleeping with a night light or seeing light from under the door can be disturbing sleep.
  5. Reduce Technology– I sleep with my cell phone and I check my phone before bed. After that I plug in my charger, put it on DO NOT DISTURB (on iPhones you can still set alarms with this feature), and I turn my phone down. This helps keep me from hearing notifications in my sleep.
  6. Drink Milk– Drinking milk helps calm my mind. It makes me sleepy. Milk has an amino acid, tryptophan. Milk also contains melatonin, a hormone that induces sleep.
