Tips to Have a Good Enough Sleep

Good Night Sleep, Good Enough Sleep, Sleep, Rest

It’s easy to indicate why you can’t sleep enough on your schedule. When you have free time, it’s bedtime, and you don’t want to go to bed yet; you need a while to go.

Then you stay too late, and the cycle goes on.

There are many other reasons not to sleep enough, too. Perhaps you have a spouse who snores, or if you get to bed, you have difficulties sleeping (insomnia).

Regardless of the reason, this must take time and the right environment to sleep. Here are some tips for doing this.

It’s Bedtime.

Remember how your parents were plaguing you about bedtime? They had a point.

They had a point. Instead of every night watching the eternal clock, knowing that you “really should” get to bed, you should set and stick to it.

Most experts agree that before midnight, preferably before 11 pm, you should go to bed.

If not, be realistic and make a bedtime if you know that you can, even at 12:30 or midnight. Then make sure you sleep between 7 and 8 hours.

Another note on bedtime – if it’s too early, experts note that can cause problems too. When you get dormant at 7 or 8 pm, you may find that after just 5 or 6 hours of sleep, you wake up in a small hour and cannot get back to sleep.

Your Bedroom

You may have a space that isn’t conducive to sleep in your bedroom. Here are some things to look for and adapt to foster sleep in your bedroom.

  • The sleepy bedroom rule is dark and cool. Darkness is essential for a good night’s sleep – lights from neighboring homes, TV or computer screens, lamps, etc., can disturb your sleep.

    It is said that cooler temperatures promote sleep. Higher body temperature can stimulate the body to avoid sleep, but cool temperatures make the night comfortable.
  • Your bed is not working for sleep. If you are accustomed to bills, office work, etc., while sitting on or in bed, your brain may be unintentionally trained to be stimulated while you are in your bed.

    It’s also harder to get away from worries if you take them literally to bed! Try to keep your work in or away from your bed in another room.
  • Keep it in your bedroom quiet. If you find it difficult, use a fan or other white noise source at night to drown disruptive sounds.

Make Listings

Don’t worry about keeping you awake? Do you have difficulty turning your brain off? Making a list could be helpful.

Write down everything that bothers you, or you can’t get away with, and take a few practical steps to work out these things in the morning (or the coming day or week).
