Quality sleep can make all the difference in your life. Sleep is vital for your brain to store memories. It’s when your body rejuvenates tissue and allows your immune system to fight off diseases. It even helps you have better control of your emotions. So before you do anything, take the time to see if you have any bad sleeping habits you need to break and discover the importance of a good night’s sleep. You deserve it.
“The key to better sleep lies within each one of us,” says Mary Helen Rogers, vice president of marketing and communications for the Better Sleep Council. “When sleep goes awry, it can feel like you have no control. But people may not realize how much influence they can have over their own sleep.”
You can become a better sleeper by using some self-regulated, sleep-improvement tips like these:
Like many things in life, you’re looking to turn quality sleep into a habit. So be consistent in your efforts. Establish a consistent bedtime to regulate your body clock. Incorporate these self-care strategies into your daily sleep routine. Soon falling asleep will become easier and your slumber will be more rejuvenating.
“It’s often just a matter of being more dedicated and disciplined about how we approach our sleep,” added Rogers.
Finally, don’t let your mattress work against you and all your self-care efforts. Consider the age and condition of your mattress (and your pillows too). Maybe it’s worn. Maybe it’s not the right one for you altogether. Getting the correct fit, feel and level of support can be the single, most-effective thing you can do to improve your sleep.Get woke about your sleep.
