Daily Health Tip

One of the factors that impacts your sleep quality are the habits you develop around sleep. We each have eating habits, reading habits, work habits and we have sleep habits. In fact, doctors and researchers refer to sleep hygeine. Let’s learn a few tips that will keep your sleep hygiene clean and clear, providing for you the best rest you can get.

 

Making Changes

1. Don’t take medications for sleep on a regular basis. If your body relies on medication to sleep it will reduce the quality of sleep you get.

2. Stop drinking about 3 hours before bed. You’ll reduce or eliminate the number of times you have to get up to urinate, and interrupt your sleep.

3. Stay hydrated during the day. This is good for lots of things, not just sleep.

4. Don’t eat a large meal within 3 hours of sleeping. You can eat a small snack before bed if you are hungry enough that it might keep you awake.

5. Do NOT watch television, work on your computer or play with your cell phone in bed. You should be sleeping, having sex or possibly reading something light in bed. Nothing else.
