At this point you’ve all experienced a time where we had a super long day and daydreamed about getting in the bed and sleeping allll day long.
And when that time finally comes, you’re laying in bed staring at the wall wondering why we can’t sleep to save our life.
Not getting enough sleep can be detrimental to your health, that’s why developing healthy sleeping habits is more important than we can express.
1. Do not drink caffeine before bed
This one seems like a no brainer, but a lot of college students are drinking coffee more often than not to survive. If you feel the need to drink caffeine, try not to drink it too close to bedtime to keep from pulling unwanted all-nighters.
2. Wear comfortable clothes
What you wear to bed can sometimes be the determining factor between a good night sleep and not getting any sleep at all. Make sure you wear something that is super comfortable to wear at night.
3. Stick to a schedule
Try going to bed at the same time every night so that your body naturally begins to wind down at the same time every day.
4. Try aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is great for putting you to sleep. Relaxing scents like lavender, vanilla, sandalwood etc. have proven to be effective in helping people sleep better.
5. Try not to nap
Napping during the day will have you up all night. Try doing something productive when you’re feeling tired instead of going to sleep.
6. Wake up at the same time everyday
Not only should you develop a routine for going to sleep at night, but you should also wake up at the same time every day. Once you get your body on a consistent schedule, everything should be smooth sailing from there.
