5 Steps to a Better Sleep

5 Steps to a Better Sleep

It’s Sleep Awareness Week and we wanted to share some insight on how to better your sleeping habits! If you are tossing and turning each night, or maybe you just want to learn how to be a better sleeper regardless, we’re here to help. Keep on reading to see our top five steps to get a better sleep each night. 

Set a Schedule & Stick to It  

Creating a sleeping schedule and nighttime routine will help your body normalize. Waking up and going to bed at the same time every day and night will allow your body to get into a comfortable circadian rhythm. It is also important to limit naps, as that will confuse your body since it isn’t a part of your normal sleeping pattern. 

Understand Light Exposure 

Increasing bright lights during the day will tell your body to stay awake and aid in that circadian rhythm. At night, be sure to reduce bright light exposure and also limit blue light. This is from your phone or electronics which can confuse your brain into thinking it is still daytime. You can install an app that blocks blue light on your phone. 

Remain Compliant 

If you suffer from a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, getting a good night’s sleep depends heavily on remaining compliant with your treatment. We offer numerous products to help you remain compliant comfortably if you have a sleep condition. Some items we offer include:

Watch What You Eat & Drink 

Do not drink alcohol or caffeine before bed along with not eating a full meal. What you put in your body before bedtime will affect your sleeping habits. Alcohol, for example, is known to increase symptoms of sleep apnea and snoring as well as altering the night time melatonin production. 

Add Supplements 

Different supplements can help give you a natural remedy for sleep. Using melatonin is a common solution but what about other supplements? Here are a few herbs, roots and supplements to try: ginkgo biloba, glycine, valerian root, magnesium, L-theanine or lavender. Be sure to only try one at a time.
