We want it all: have fun, relax, have time to get our work done, work out, and sleep. Even though sleep is last in that order, it should be at the top of your list. Without a healthy amount of sleep, you are likely to lack or show up without the right energy for the rest of your activities. If you can’t get to sleep on time, here are some tips to help make the time you do sleep better.
If you are a coffee drinker, do your best to stay away from it after lunch. Caffeine wakes up your body and not your brain, so by taking it, you will only make yourself restless later on.
Netflix is the downfall of many procrastinators’ motivation. With the automatic queue, you can finish a whole season in a day. But when it’s time to go to bed, get rid of anything that produces a lot of light, as well as calls your attention. This will help bring the Z’s.
You should also lay off on drinks and food before bed. No one likes to get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom.
The last tip is tricky. Use your internal alarm clock. When you have your routine, it’s simple. Sleep when your body is telling you to. When you sleep better, waking up is easier.
If you want your dreams to come true, get better rest so you can have the energy to make those dreams a reality. [via]
