4 Things You Need To Do To Sleep Better At Night

Hate waking up knowing you barely got any sleep? That’s no way to start the day! It can be difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep especially when your mind is racing from all of the day’s activities and from anticipating what tomorrow will be like. And if that isn’t bad enough, there are lots of things in your bedroom that are interfering with quality sleep, too! See below to find out four things you need to do right now that will help you sleep better at night.

  1. Do Away With Clutter: believe it or not, when you’re surrounded by clutter your mind has trouble relaxing. When you’re in a clean, tidy room the opposite is true and for this reason, it’s a good idea to pick up clothing off the floor, fold it and store it neatly away in your dresser or closet.

  2. Minimize Exposure To Light: both natural and artificial light have tendencies to make you feel more awake. When it’s time to go to sleep, make sure you’ve turned off the lights and closed the blinds or shades. This goes for closet lights, bathroom lights, and any light that might be emitted from the television or computer.

  3. Get Rid Of Electronic Devices: electronic devices give off blue light which can make it difficult to fall asleep. We suggest avoiding the use of all electronic devices at least an hour before bedtime. If you must charge your devices, do so outside of the bedroom.

  4. Purify The Air: you can choose to place a houseplant near your bed, or anywhere in the bedroom for that matter, or you can opt for an air purification device. Cleaner, fresher air can have a number of positive effects on the mind and the body.

While we can’t guarantee you’ll sleep like a rock by doing the four things mentioned above, we can certainly sure you it’s a step in the right direction!
