Starting a day full of joy is only possible if you go to bed with satisfaction and get a good night’s sleep. Yet most people spend their evenings engaging in unhealthy activities, get too little rest, and then wonder why they lack energy in the morning.
Here are 5 healthy nighttime habits that will help you get a good night’s rest — and will allow you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle each morning with ease!
Prepare For Tomorrow
Determining your objectives for the coming day allows you to identify your most important tasks in advance—before all the pressures of the day arrive on your doorstep. Second, it allows your brain to begin thinking about those tasks as you fall asleep.
Take Time For Yourself
Perhaps you watch an episode of your favorite show or read that book you’ve been meaning to get to. Set a time limit for these activities. Six minutes of reading can ease the tension of stress in the human body and calm your nerves.
Step Away From The Screens
There’s a reason why we hear again and again to put away the screens at bedtime: Blue light emitted from screens negatively impacts our production of melatonin, the body’s natural sleep-inducing hormone, thereby disrupting our sleep.
Reflect on Your Day
It can be easy to lose sight of victories after a long day. Taking just a few moments at the end of the day to reflect on and celebrate your wins puts things into the proper perspective and gives you encouragement for the coming day. It helps you overcome the discouragement that often comes with setbacks and helps you feel more gratitude.
Go To Sleep At The Same Time Every Night
As an adult, you’re recommended to sleep for 6 to 10 hours every day. Find a time that is suitable for you and stick to that sleeping time. You can set an alarm one hour before going to bed to remind you to start your bedtime ritual.
Implementing one or two of these can help you. It will save you from unnecessary stress that a busy morning gives. Your brain will rest positively at night and you’ll have a clear direction for tomorrow. All because you prepared the night before.
