8 Simple Tips to Sleep Like a Baby

If you have trouble getting a good night’s sleep, you’re not alone. In the US, it’s
estimated that between 50-70 million adults aren’t getting enough sleep. Some
degree of insomnia is reported in as many as 30% of all adults.
Sleep is vital to both your health and happiness. How happy are you when you’ve had
to pull an all-nighter for school, work, or even as part of your social life?

Consider these 8 tips to get the most out of your sleep:

1. Set a sleep schedule and stick to it. Our bodies adapt very quickly to our
sleeping habits. Notice that if you stay up late and eat, your digestion tends to
run amuck.
Most people require 7-8 hours of sleep to function optimally.
Your body is much more efficient at sleeping and preparing for sleep if you
can maintain a schedule.

2. Keep your bedroom cool. Your body temperature drops as you near bedtime
and is at its lowest during sleep. If the room is too warm, your body won’t be
able to cool down.
Sleep quality is improved in a cool sleeping environment.
You’ll have to play around with the temperature to findwhat’s ideal for

3. Avoid alcohol. Alcohol can help you fall asleep, but sleep quality is
compromised. It has been shown that sleep is less restful and you’ll wake up
more often during the night, even if you don’t remember it. For some reason, the
negative effects of alcohol are more pronounced in women.

4. Darken the room. Even the light from your alarm clock can compromise the
quality of your sleep.
Remove as much artificial light from your sleeping environment as
Turn off the computer screen and minimize any ambient light coming from
outside the room.

5. Sleep the most beneficial amount of time. Studies have shown that sleeping
more than 9 hours or less than 6 hours is associated with feelings of anxiety and
If you find you need more than 9 hours and can’t sleep more than 6, a visit
to your physician is advised.
Even one night of low quality or quantity sleep is associated with insulin
resistance, a major cause of type-2 diabetes. Those that sleep less than 6
hours are also far more likely to develop high blood pressure.

6. Ensure you get enough vitamin B6, calcium and magnesium. Vitamin B6 is
needed to synthesize melatonin, which is vital to sleep. Calcium deficiency has
been shown to increase the amount of time it takes to fall asleep. Magnesium
intake is associated with the ability to stay asleep.

7. How’s your mattress? Even the highest quality mattress has lost as much as 75%
of its support after 10 years.
You probably spend more time sleeping than you do on any other single
activity. Be certain you have a good mattress.
Consider how much you spent on your car and how many hours you use it.
Purchase the best mattress you can afford.

8. Try not to exercise within 3 hours of your bedtime. Exercise is great for
increasing the quality of sleep and decreasing the amount of time required to
fall asleep. However, studies have shown that 3 hours is the cutoff point to
prevent exercising from decreasing sleep quality.

Sleep is an important part of maintaining health and enjoying life. If you’d enjoy
sleeping more like a baby, keep these tips in mind. Maintain a regular sleeping
schedule and ensure that your sleeping environment supports peaceful sleep.
