We have advice from WikiHow and The Huffington Post. We hope that you have a great March here in Fitchburg, WI — complete with restful sleep!
Get ready for bed
The Mayo Clinic has some great advice on how you can get your nighttime routine to line up with your sleep schedule. Stick to the same routine every night. Brush your teeth, listen to some music, write in a journal, and then get to bed. Sticking to a routine (and going to bed at the same time each night) will help your body know when it’s time to get to sleep and will make falling asleep much, much easier.
Let Yourself Wake Up
The National Sleep Foundation suggests dimming your lights about an hour before bedtime to help you get to sleep and letting in the daylight in the morning to help you wake up. Make sure that you stop hitting that snooze button in the morning. It’s better to wake up with your first alarm rather than let yourself get low quality sleep after your alarm goes off.
Relax before bed
WikiHow has several routines to help you fall asleep. They advise keeping your room clean, dressing in comfortable clothing, learning to relax your mind (and body), turning on some relaxing music, and stretching before bed.
Think of a happy memory
The Huffington Post cites an Oxford University study that proved that relaxing imagery could help you fall asleep. Picture the place where you feel more relaxed and focus on that image until you slowly feel yourself falling asleep.
