How can I get better sleep?
Do you have a TV in your bedroom? Do you keep it on at night? Well for 80% of American’s this is the case. They will dose off watching TV after a long day at work, which is fine. Here is how it’s affecting your sleep though! When you drift off while watching TV your brain is still active and going. The recommended option is to turn your TV off about 15 minutes before you go to bed. These does two things for you, it slows down your brain and turns off the blue screen. You don’t realize it, but the vibrant blue screen that’s left behind can be disrupting your sleep and keeping you from going into the deep sleep you want.
Cancel out the noise! Stop playing the radio, leaving the TV on, or subjecting yourself to outside noise. The biggest reason you don’t feel well rested is because you’re not! You aren’t able to go into a deep sleep at night because you are interrupted. The best trick is to cancel out bad noise with good noise.
