Sleep is my best friend. I love Sleep when I’m laying in bed asleep. I’m angry with Sleep when I can’t fall asleep. It has come to be a love/hate relationship with Sleep.
It’s normal to not have a good sleeping habit, but it sucks in the morning when your still tired. I have learned to have good sleeping habits. There needs to be a strategy or routine before you go to bed.
1.Sleep Schedule:go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Your body will conform to your sleep schedule.
2.Bedtime Routine:create a routine so that you can relax before getting in bed. Wash your face and brush your teeth. Turn down the noise. Keep your room cool.
3.Exercise & Diet:what you eat does make a difference. Avoid big meals late at night and don’t drink too many liquids in the evening. Also avoid caffeine because it can cause sleeping problems up to 12 hours. Exercise would be a great help. Put your body through physical work and it will be ready to relax in the evening.
Now this strategy may not work for everyone. It is up to you to find a routine that works for you.
