5 Secrets to Help You Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep can be hard. Thankfully, there are many tried and tested methods to help you get some quality rest so that you personally don’t need to try a hundred and one different things. To make things easy for you, we’ve plucked out the top five secrets that will lead to a good night’s rest.

1. Use your bed for sleeping

Sounds silly, but it’s true! Don’t use your bed for things like working or lounging. Train your brain to think of your bed as just a place to fall asleep and you’ll feel a lot more comfortable when you get under the sheets.

2. Exercise and spend your energy

We sleep to recharge our energy, so if you’re not using it up with exercise or physical activity, you’re just going to end up going to bed with unspent energy that will keep you awake.

3. Give yourself time to relax

Lay off the food, stop the alcohol and no more caffeine. Relax with something comfortable like a warm bath or shower to prepare your body for sleep.

4. Focus on comfort

Get a new mattress, try a different blanket or consider replacing your pillows. Do whatever it takes to get comfortable when you’re in your bed and you’ll fall asleep much faster.

5. Practice a bedtime ritual

We’re creatures of habit. Once we get into the flow of doing something, it’s hard to break out of it, which is why bedtime rituals that lead to sleep are so effective. It can be difficult to think of a bedtime ritual, so check out this handy infographic below to help you find something that works for you.
