Getting A Better Night's Sleep
Welcome back to The Tower at Spring Creek Blog. Are you struggling to get a good night’s sleep? If so, we’ve got a few ideas that could help you improve the quality of your sleep and wake feeling more rested.
Having a nightly routine can let your body know that it’s time to get ready for bed and to relax. Find a routine that’s best for you and your schedule. Maybe it’s simply taking a warm shower and brushing your teeth before bed. This can help promote a calm state for you to fall asleep easily. One tip to help you get in the habit of a nightly routine is to set an alarm to let you know it’s time to get ready for bed. This will ensure that you’re getting to bed at a reasonable time, as well as taking the necessary time to slow down and prepare for a good night’s sleep.
Exercise during the day can help you to sleep better at night. If you spend a lot of time sitting down throughout the day, small amounts of exercise can make a big difference. Your body needs to burn off the calories you take in through food. If you aren’t burning them off through daily activity you may find it difficult to fall or stay asleep at night. Simple increases in exercise can make a big difference. Go on a walk after work or play frisbee at the park with your friends.
A Restful Environment
One of our favorite ways to get a good night’s sleep is to create a comfortable bedroom. One way to do this is to use neutral and cool colors when decorating. This will add a calm and soothing mood to your room. Use lots of blankets and pillows as well to create a cozy feeling. You can also use low lighting from candles or lamps and aromatherapy for a very relaxed feeling in your room.
