Tips for Sound Sleep

 Follow these tips to sleep soundly and wake refreshed.

Consistency

Adjust your schedule so that sleep time is consistent

  • Make sure you turn in and get up at the same time every day – even on the weekends.
  • Get your catnaps in earlier in the afternoon (before 3 p.m.)  and limit your naps to less than an hour.
  •   When you’re active and in shape, you are more likely to have a better night’s rest and more energy throughout the day.

Tranquil Atmosphere

Your bedroom can be a calm sanctuary

  • No electronics! Get cozy under the covers. 
  • Nightlights  in the bathroom  

 Bedtime Routine:  Take time to wind down before you go to sleep.

  • Quiet your mind: Read a book, jot down thoughts that may be keeping you from sleep, or meditate.
  • Nighttime music or a relaxation tape.
  • Still not sleepy? Don’t panic. Get out of bed and calm your brain with a quiet activity.  Try yoga or one of the activities above.
