Sleep Tighter

Four Ways to Better Sleep

1. Have a set bedtime and awake time so your body gets used to sleeping during a specific time frame.

2. Avoid alcohol at night. While booze makes you sleepy at first, a few hours after imbibing, there’s a stimulant effect when the alcohol levels in your body start to decline.

3. Don’t exercise before bed. Afternoon workouts can promote a deeper sleep, but exercising within two hours of bedtime can make it difficult to fall asleep.

4. Unplug. Over 95 percent of participants use a TV, smart phone, or computer during the hour before bed. The artificial light exposure from the screens suppresses the release of sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, making it more difficult to fall asleep.
