Weird Sleep Advice That Really Works

Sleep can be elusive to a lot of people. In fact, studies show that only one in four people actually get the recommended eight hours sleep a night. Some things can be done to help you though. Try to keep the room cool. This actually will help you drift off easier. Also, using silk sheets and pillow cases can be helpful. They help regulate body temperature and they are also woven tightly enough that they tend to have less allergens. Another idea is to go camping an sleep outside. This regulates you circadian rhythm. It is light when it is supposed to be, and dark when it is supposed to be, so you don’t have any of the artificial lighting that tends to mess up your rhythm. Take a bath or shower right before bed. Your body will use energy to cool down, and this can make you tired. Think back over the day and try to remember all of the details. This is like counting sheep and could help you get tired enough to fall asleep. You can also try to relax your muscles by tensing them and relaxing them. If you are still awake after twenty minutes, it might be helpful to go to another room and try to fall asleep. Sometimes a different environment can help. Lastly, it’s important to remember not to drink alcohol before bed. This actually causes a more restless sleep. These are all worth trying and may help you get a little more rest time.

Key Points:

  • 1Change your body core temperature, either cooling it off or warning it up.
  • 2Try a different location or place to sleep. Sleep outside or go to a hotel.
  • 3Avoid alcohol before you go to sleep. It might help you drift off but you may wake up unrefreshed.
