3 Quick Tips to Snooze Better!

1. Maintain a consistent sleep schedule.

Allow for no more than eight hours of sleep. A healthy adult should get at least seven hours of sleep per night. The majority of people do not require more than eight hours of sleep to achieve this goal. Every day, go to bed and get up at the same time.

Try to keep the time difference between weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Consistency strengthens your body's sleep-wake cycle.

If you haven't fallen asleep within 20 minutes, get out of bed and do something relaxing. Read a book or listen to relaxing music. When you're tired, go back to bed. Repeat as necessary.

2. Be mindful of what you eat and drink.

You should not go to bed hungry or stuffed. Avoid eating anything heavy or large within a couple of hours of going to bed. Your discomfort may keep you awake.

Nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol should all be used with caution. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off and can have a negative impact on sleep quality. And, while alcohol may make you feel sleepy, it can interfere with your sleep later in the night.

3. Make physical activity a part of your daily routine.

Regular physical activity can help you sleep better. However, avoid being active too close to bedtime.

Spending time outside every day may also be beneficial.
