Welcome to part two in our five-part series! If you haven’t checked out the previous part yet, don’t forget to after reading this portion. Throughout five blogs, we are delivering the best tricks in the game to get better quality sleep…and more of it! The goal is having you and your family feel as refreshed as you all can before each day.
Tip #3: Avoid caffeine and nicotine, especially in the afternoon and evenings.
Coffee drinkers are well aware of this principle since most of us are enjoying these habits to ward off sleep! However, as most of us experience, these substances do put a damper on our ability to fall asleep at night especially if we are trying to wake-up the next day. If you need caffeine to function, try capping off 8-10 hours before bedtime (or whatever works for you) to avoid effects on your sleep.
Tip #4: Make a habit of exercise.
Even though exercise and physical activity is the exact opposite of sleep, it helps regulate our sleep cycles and hormones. However, it’s important to time it correctly so that it does not affect your sleep negatively. Most people feel the rush of adrenaline a few hours after they exercise so it is usually recommended that workouts should be avoided two to three hours before bedtime. However, there are some people who feel exhausted after exercise and sleep better in which case exercise can be done close to bedtime.
