3 Tips for Effortlessly Improving Your Sleep

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sleep is one of those things that we can never get enough of in our lives. Most people are constantly tired. Endlessly fatigued. Suffering from a never-ending lack of quality rest. And even though we try to hide it, the weariness shows. It shows in our attitudes, our productivity, and in our health! So what can we do? We can make improving our sleep a top priority. If you're ready to get more sleep every day for a significant boost in mental and physical well-being, take a look at these effortless tips for making progress. 

Create Technology Limits

We all love technology. The phones, the streaming services, the tablets. And while these devices absolutely have a place in the world, your bedtime routine is not one of those places. The light emitted from screens affects our ability to sleep. The more we look at them, the harder sleep becomes. It's not an easy task, but setting limits on your technology use is key. Turn them off at least an hour before bed and allow your body and mind to wind down naturally. 

See the Sun

The best way to regulate your body's natural sleep rhythm is by exposing yourself to  natural light. Make sure that you're getting outside in the sunshine every day. If you like to exercise outdoors, go for it. If you like to walk, consider a stroll in nature. Or if you're more of an indoor person, just get outside and soak in some sunshine while you relax. Seeing natural light during the day helps your eyes, brain, and body create a natural sleep pattern, which makes it easier to fall asleep at night. 

Keep a Routine

Routines are incredibly helpful. To keep sleep on track, you need a routine in the morning and one at night. Get up at the same time and follow a loose set of tasks. Drink coffee, read a little, get dressed. And then do the same thing at night. Follow a bedtime routine at roughly the same time each night. The more you stick to the routines, the more your body will get used to it, and the better you'll sleep moving forward. 

Sleep is crucial. It's not just a luxury that we hope to get one day in the future. It's not something we should be treating as an option. It's a staple of good health. Use these tips to improve your sleep today so that you can enjoy better health and a better quality of life starting right away.
