Recently, I’ve been having some trouble sleeping. I’ll lay down, but then I don’t fall asleep for a long time. It’ll take me at least two hours to actually fall asleep from the time I lay down.
After reading this infographic, I’m starting to accept the fact that I struggle when I sleep. Using the ACT, or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Act for Sleep, I am able to be mindful of these struggles, and find ways to cope with not being able to sleep.
I tend to use my phone right before I go to bed. I love to check my social media every night. This stimulates the brain and causes you to be more awake. If you stop using your phone before bed, this can help you wind down and let you fall asleep easier than before.
If you have trouble getting to sleep, you most likely struggle to get out of bedin the morning. If you want to get a nice start to the day, try using methods like waking up at the same time each day, showering in the morning, and treating yourself to a healthy breakfast.
I hope you can use the tips and tricks in this infographic and apply them to your daily routine. If you’re looking for more ways to help with sleep, here are some bizarre tricks you can try. Sweet dreams!
