Tips for a good nights sleep - Deepstash

Tips for a good nights sleep

  1. Stick to a sleep schedule. Create a sleeping habit by going to bed and waking up at the same time, every-single-day.
  2. Exercise, but don’t do it before going to sleep. Your body needs at least 3 hours to calm down after a workout.
  3. Avoid caffeine and nicotine. The effect of stimulating beverages takes 8 hours to wear off.
  4. Avoid alcohol before going to bed. 
  5. Avoid drinking plenty of water before going to sleep. 
  6. Don’t take naps after 3 PM
  7. Relax before going to bed
  8. A hot bath before bed might help. 
  9. Diss the gadgets and dim the lights in your bedroom
  10. Expose yourself to sunlight during the day.
