This Is What You Must Do to Get a Good Night’s Sleep
Posted: October 12, 2015
If there were a shortcut to complete and total wellness, we would all take it. The truth is there is no one solution for curing all of our health issues. However, there is one thing that comes pretty close, and it is at once simple yet surprisingly difficult: getting enough sleep each and every night.
Getting a good night’s rest is one of the most vital and important things you can do to stay healthy both physically and mentally. This is not news, but why do you think so many doctors and healthcare experts insist on repeating it? Huffington Post Health has a list of basic things to keep in mind to get a good night’s sleep, which we have summarized here.
The first thing you have to do is make sleep a priority. As much fun as going out can be, the truth is that the less sleep you get, the greater the chance of shortening your lifespan. Why take the risk at all?
If you find that you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night, make sure your sleeping environment is conducive to rest. Make it as dark as you can, and banish all electronic devices from the bedroom, at least in the hour or so before going to sleep. The blue light emitted from these devices can often mess with our natural sleep-wake cycles.
Finally, figure out what your ideal sleep time is. Doctors generally agree that most adults do best with seven to nine hours, but it is best to see which time specifically works for you.
