Good Night – Great Sleep

You know how to get a good night’s sleep – stick to a regular schedule, avoid caffeine, and skip the late snacks. Try these tips for a great nights sleep:

  • Wear socks to bed.
    Feet are the first part of the body to cool down, keeping them warm reduces night awakenings
  • Go to bed as early as possible.
    Many of our bodily systems recharge and recover between the hours of 11pm and 1am.   Our circadian rhythms are set for us to go to bed after sundown.
  • Sleep in complete darkness & keep the light off when using the restroom.
    Light stops the production of a sleep hormone, melatonin.
  • Don’t ‘sweat’ the bedroom temperature.
    What is the best room temperature for sleep – they one that feels best to you.
  • Do something enjoyable, but not too exciting or upsetting, before sleeping.
    Read a travel book.  Wait until morning to pay bills!
  • Skip the alcohol.
    Although it may be initially relaxing, later it will cause mid-night awakenings and prevent falling into the deepest, healing, stage of sleep.
  • Take a hot shower before bed.
    The body’s falling temperature will help you fall asleep.
  • Sleep on a Dry Moon Pillowcase.
    The low twist imported terry fabric absorbs sweat from the head, the warmest part of the body, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
