10 Tips for Getting Deep Sleep

10 Tips for Getting Deep Sleep

There are plenty of things that you should be doing when it comes to getting healthy, but one of the most important is getting the right amount of sleep and the right type of sleep. Just how do you do that? Here are a few steps that will help you.

  1. Set your sleep schedule so you go to bed and get up at the same time every day. You may like the idea of staying up late and sleeping in later on the weekends but staying consistent every night and day is actually better for your body. It throws off your sleep cycles and could mean you get less sleep rather than more.
  2. Create a comfortable sleep environment that's conducive to a good nights' sleep. That means getting rid of the TV in your bedroom and any other electronic devices. And make sure that your bed and blankets are comfortable for you. That might mean a firmer or softer mattress (depending on your preference).
  3. Keep your bed dedicated to sleep and relaxation without letting anything else get in the way. Your bed isn't the place to play on your phone, work on your computer, or anything else that keeps you awake.
  4. Ditch the nicotine from any tobacco products. It can make it hard for you to sleep, even hours after you've had your last cigarette. You'll struggle to get to sleep as a result of those tobacco products.
  5. Manage it naturally, without using sleeping pills, if possible. Those sleeping pills can cause dependence and make it difficult to get to sleep without those pills in the future.
  6. Reduce your caffeine intake as much as possible. If you can't cut it out entirely then at least cut back, and especially 6 hours before bed. But keep in mind just how much caffeine affects you personally. You may need to cut caffeine for a longer period of time than you think because even early morning caffeine could make it hard to sleep later.
  7. Get active. It may sound counterproductive to getting to sleep, but getting aerobic exercise can actually help you fall asleep faster, so you get more sleep at night. Plus, it makes you healthier overall so you have more energy throughout the day. Avoid working out before bedtime, and choose to exercise in the morning or afternoon.
  8. Get out of bed. If you are ready to go to bed but you don't fall asleep within 20 minutes it's time to get up. Staying in bed without sleeping is only going to lead to discomfort. Instead, get up and find something relaxing to do so you can get prepared to try again.
  9. Monitor alcohol intake and make sure you're not drinking too close to bedtime. Even though it might help you fall asleep it definitely makes it more difficult to stay asleep.
  10. Skip the naps during the day. Some people like to take naps during the day. One or more because they are tired or bored or for any other reason. But daytime naps can cause trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep at night.

By putting each of these steps into place in your life you'll be able to get better sleep.

That means falling asleep easier, sleeping longer, and getting better quality sleep while you're asleep too. All you need to do is start small and build up to the best sleep situation for you.
