Previously, we began discussing how to develop an ideal night routine to prime your body for sleep. We went over having a consistent bedtime and to allow yourself a chunk of time the night before to gradually wind down to your bedtime. We also covered taking stressors into consideration and meditative practices. In this second part, we will continue discussing considerations and steps to create the perfect nightly routine for you.
During the hours leading to your sleep, it is important to be mindful of your diet. Caffeine and heavy meals can lead to disruptions such as difficulty falling asleep or causing nighttime awakenings. Any caffeine or heavier meals should be reserved for the afternoons at latest. In another manner, limiting alcohol and nicotine will also help as both can interfere with your sleep quality.
During the day, regular exercise can also help you fall asleep faster and have deeper sleep. This is caused by allowing your body to utilize energy as well as releasing dopamine and relaxation hormones. As well during the day, excessive napping can disrupt you falling and staying asleep at night!
