Tips To Fall Asleep Quickly
They don’t call it beauty rest for nothing! Lack of sleep can hinder the recharging of your brain, consolidation of learning, the release of important hormones, and the reparation of brain cells. So how much sleep do you need for all these things to happen?
The National Sleep Foundation suggests that adults need 7-9 hours of sleep on average.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests that adults need 7-9 hours of sleep on average. For some people, that’s easier said than done. 54% of American adults have symptoms of insomnia more than once a week and 25% of American adults don’t get enough sleep to be alert. This can result in poorer concentration, forgetfulness, neglecting of hobbies, difficulty driving, neglecting financial affairs and work interference.
So, how can you get the shut eye your body requires?
Don’t look at your phone before bed
Studies show that exposure to blue light given off by electronic devices at night prevents our brains from releasing melatonin (a hormone that lets our bodies know it’s nighttime). This can make it much harder to fall asleep and disrupt our internal body clocks. It’s recommended to put the gadgets down at least one hour before bedtime. It sounds hard, but challenge yourself this week and see how you feel.
Sleep in a dark & cool space
Keep your room as dark as possible so that your sleep doesn’t get disrupted. Light from inside or out can also have an effect on those pesky melatonin levels. If light shines through your windows, consider getting some heavy shades or wearing a dark sleep mask. The temperature of your bedroom is important, too! Keeping it bedroom below 70 degrees can jumpstart the process of drifting off to dreamland.
Set up a sleep pattern
You’re probably sick of hearing this one but setting up a sleep schedule can help set your body’s internal clock. Force yourself to get into a habit for a week or two and see if your body responds. It might be just what you need!
