Statistics show that most people need more sleep, however, it can be easier said than done. I know because I’ve been there. I struggled for years to get good quality sleep. Here are some tips based on what I’ve learned about what it takes to get more sleep each and every night.
First, Get to the root cause of why you aren’t sleeping or sleeping as well as you would like. This may require you to go to your doctor’s or to find a doctor who specializes in sleep. I recommend finding one who is willing to do what it takes to find the why behind your lack of sleep and not just give you a pill to make you sleep.
Second, Create a sleep routine. This is really a must for most people. You need to establish a routine to help you get more sleep just like you do for other aspects of your life. A lot of people don’t realize this, but you need a sleep routine just as badly as you need an exercise routine, and a healthy eating routine.
Third, Explore natural alternatives to drugs to help you sleep. There are lots of options out there. You need to find the right one to help you get more sleep. If you want me to help you, schedule a free wellness consultation and we can talk about your specific needs.
Fourth, Figure out if you are eating something that is effecting your sleep. It may sound weird but this can be the cause of a lack of sleep for more people than realize it. I personally went through a period of time where I couldn’t sleep if I ate blueberries. I know it sounds weird and it was but that was my problem. I did find a way through healing my gut and by not eating blueberries for awhile to overcome it but this experience taught me that food can impact everything including your sleep.
Fifth, Create the right environment for sleep. This may include things like white noise (if needed), making your room completely dark, making sure you don’t have a partner who snores or who is otherwise disrupting your sleep, playing some soft music if that helps, a comfortable bed and bedding, etc.
Sixth, Track your sleep. How much sleep are you really getting? You can use a sleep journal or there are apps on devices such as the apple watch or other smart phones and devices.Did this help you? If so, I would greatly appreciate a comment and a share on Facebook, twitter, linkedin, or pinterest.
