How to Sleep Well During Retirement

Retirement brings dreams of, well, dreams. Of being able to sleep in, or grab that afternoon nap, just whenever you want. Because you’re retired. No one’s expecting you at the office, and you can run errands whenever you want. On your own schedule. But some people are finding that retirement, even though they’re leaving work stress behind them, can still present some sleeping issues that impact their ability to get a full and restful night’s sleep.

Some of the issues come from the same kinds of modern pressures everyone, working or retired, is facing. Electronic devices and the light from all the screens our devices use does affect our brains and bodies in certain ways scientists are still investigating. But staying near screens, especially when you’re trying to unwind before bed, can impact the quality as well as quantity of sleep you can get. Turning off the electronics and opening an old school book or some other non-screen activity can measurably improve your rest.

Even though you are retired, staying on a set sleeping schedule can also help your body stay adjusted for wakeful times versus sleep times. It helps the body know when you need to be active, and when it’s okay to start shutting down in expectation of a good night’s rest. And don’t forget, regular exercise helps everything. Even the quality of sleep you get when you lay down.

Key Points:

  • 1Retirees tend to sleep better at night than non-retirees.
  • 2Retirees can sleep more, it’s recommended that they maintain a consistent sleep schedule.
  • 3To sleep better one must remain active, avoid excess sleep in the day, and try to relax in the evenings.


It might seem ironic that after so many years of sticking to a regular work schedule, you now need to follow a consistent sleep schedule. But by remaining consistent with your bedtimes and wake-up times, you are actually maximizing the benefits of sleep’s restorative powers and will feel energized for your day ahead.
