This is going to be one of those do as I say, not as I do posts.
Since I function perfectly ok on about 4 hours-5 hours of sleep!
Sorry, been doing that since I was a kid delivering newspapers at 5 a.m. before school and that was like 32+ years ago, so I’m used to it.
We all know that sleep is important and I’m sure by now you all know about the most common sleep tips so here are some new tips to help you get better sleep.
Tips for Better Sleep
- Don’t go to bed mad or upset. If something is bothering you, resolve it before you take it to bed.
And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry
~~ Ephesians 4:26
- Find a sleeping position that works for you (I actually sleep on my back, mainly because of back issues it’s the only way I can sleep! who knew it was considered the healthiest position!?)
- Go to bed when you’re truly tired. Going before that can just lead to anxiety looking at the clock and trying to force yourself to sleep…it doesn’t work.
- Sleep on comfortable & supportive mattress with quality pillows. If your mattress is sagging or has things poking you, it’s time to invest in a new one! I often sleep on the floor on my acupressure mat.
If all that fails you, then you may want to Take a Melatonin supplement
Do what works for YOU!
I know that sounds like it should be a no brainer but so many people get caught up in the rules of sleep and what works for one may not work for you.
Many people say you sleep better when it’s cold…well, I personally freeze when it’s below 76!
I literally sleep with multiple blankets, comforters and long pj pants at night because my daughter loves the cold, has a/c set to 68-72…I sleep best at high temps and being warm.
So, don’t get caught up in everything like it’s the only way to get good sleep.
All these tips are guidelines, nothing more, nothing less.
