4 Tips for Getting a Better Night's Sleep, Naples, Florida

A good night’s sleep improves almost every aspect of your life. It can boost your job performance, increase relationship satisfaction, and relieve stress. Unfortunately, approximately 35% of American adults don't get enough sleep, and even more fail to get the high-quality rest they need. The tips below will help you fall asleep more quickly and wake up ready to tackle the day.

4 Tips for Getting Better Sleep

1. Monitor the Temperature

During the night, your core temperature drops by a few degrees, which helps you stay asleep. If your room’s temperature is too high, you may wake up throughout the night, even if you aren’t physically uncomfortable. For most people, the ideal temperature for sleeping is around 70 degrees. If your home is usually a little warmer than this, try turning the thermostat down a few degrees before going to bed.

2. Avoid Drinking

3. Start Exercising

Regular exercise helps you relieve stress, manage weight, and contributes to a good night’s sleep. However, it also provides an energy boost, so plan to exercise earlier in the day. If you don’t have time in the morning, finish exercising at least a few hours before bedtime.

4. Relieve Stress

No matter how exhausted you might be, thinking about work, family issues, and other stressors can keep you up late into the night. Dealing with stress by talking to a therapist, practicing yoga, or engaging in favorite activities throughout the day will help improve the quality of your sleep at night.
