Tips to Getting Better Sleep Today

By Virginia Laird

When it comes to getting sleep, there are many who struggle to get enough. Whether it be stress, too much on the mind, or other things that keep you up each night, there is no reason to allow this to persist. Health and wellness experts admit that there are a few things you can do to impact your ability to rest. A few tips offered by these experts include:

  • Make time to exercise
  • Go to bed when you are tired
  • Stretch before hitting the pillow

Make Time to Exercise

There is plenty of research to suggest that a daily workout can improve sleep. Health and wellness experts suggest this has much to do with the body's ability to release tension, which builds throughout the day. These professionals suggest that those looking for a better night of rest should consider adding a daily workout. It is advised that as little as 20 minutes of exercise each day can be enough to help you sleep better.

Go to Bed When You Are Tired

Health and wellness experts suggest that one mistake made by millions is not going to bed when exhaustion hits. Instead, many try to stretch just a few more minutes (or hours) out of their already tired body. This can get in the way of good solid rest. Rather than trying to work on household chores, binge your favorite television show, or get a few extra hours of work in, it is best that you take yourself to bed when you are tired. Research indicates that as you strive to push through the feeling of being tired, the body can become more stressed and overly exhausted to the point where sleep can be difficult. Tonight, give a try to going to bed when you are tired.

Stretch Before Hitting the Pillow

There are many who need help relaxing prior to hitting the pillow. Health and wellness experts suggest that light stretching can be enough to help release tension in the body. There is no need for these stretches to require workout clothes and a yoga mat. Simple toe touches and back and neck stretches can do the job. Research suggests that stretching just a few minutes each evening can help you achieve a deeper sleep.

For those desiring a better sleep, now is the time to put these tips to the test. You may find a better sleep you never thought you could achieve.
