How to get some good ZZZ's

If you have trouble falling asleep, can’t seem to stay asleep for long periods of time, or just wake up feeling groggy and not refreshed, you’re not alone.

Almost everyone at some time or another experiences sleep issues. While some people do have sleep disorders that require medical intervention, the rest of us can usually reclaim our sleep by changing our habits.

The first thing you must realize is that a good night’s sleep begins during the day.

That’s right...

Your habits during the day can have a significant impact on how well you sleep.

Many of us who have trouble sleeping, crash during the afternoon, and nothing seems better than a good nap. However, you should avoid extended naps. Doing so will help you fall asleep at a reasonable time at night.

In addition, be sure to avoid caffeine past noon, and get at least 30 minutes of exercise per day. In addition to being great for you, people who get exercise tend to sleep better at night than those who don’t.

The environment in which you sleep is also very important to your quality of sleep.

Be sure that you have enough room, have covers that ensure you are not too warm, and have a supportive mattress and pillow.

Your mattress should be firm, and your pillow should promote the correct posture and alignment of your head and neck.

Your room itself should be quiet and dark, with the right temperature and ventilation. Avoid having a television or anything else that overloads the senses in your room.

Don’t eat in your bed or work on your laptop computer. You should associate your bed with nothing else but sleeping and time with your spouse.

Take care that you keep a regular routine when it comes to bedtime. While it’s tempting to sleep in a little later on the weekends, this will wreak havoc with your internal clock, and will make it more difficult to fall asleep.

Also, pay attention to what your body tells you in terms of when you want to go to bed. When do you usually start to feel sleepy? Go to bed then. Avoid going to bed before you are excessively tired, otherwise you might toss and turn.

Finally, be sure to keep up with your massage therapy. Massage therapy has been known to help quite a few clients get better quality sleep.
