3 Before-Bed Habits You Should Adopt To Sleep Better At Night #WellnessWednesday

Having a regular bedtime routine is vital to getting a good night’s sleep. Training your body to wind down in the same way each day really does impact how well you sleep. Need a little help making your before bed routine most effective? Here are three habits that you should adopt to sleep better every single night.

1. Set a bedtime. I know what you’re thinking, “aren’t bed times for 6 year olds?” Yes, but the fact is you should never outgrow a bedtime. Going to sleep at around the same time each night is super important; this is how your body knows it’s time for bed and you won’t have trouble falling asleep each night at totally random times. That being said, it’s also important to wake up around the same time every morning, as well. Consistency is vital.

2. Make your bedroom a sanctuary for sleep. TV blasting? Scrolling on your phone? These are not the best ways to get yourself ready for sleep. Also, if your bedroom isn’t in the condition for sleeping, you won’t be either. Make sure the room is dark, at a temperature that you’re comfortable sleeping in and that your bed and pillows actually make you feel comfortable.

3. Watch what you eat! Eating or drinking certain things too close to bedtime is definitely not something you should get in a habit of doing. Alcohol and coffee? No bueno. Obviously drinking caffeine too close to bedtime will not help you get any sleep and no matter how tired drinking alcohol makes you feel, it doesn’t set you up for healthy sleep. You should also steer clear of fatty foods and other foods that you have trouble digesting is not good to consume before bed either.
