Reading before sleeping has been scientifically proven to improve sleep. In this article, we will be explaining why reading is the best way to improve your sleep.
Everyone knows the fastest way to get a child to sleep is by reading to them. Well, it is the same for adults. It not only allows for a fast bedtime, but has been proven to positively impact sleep quality, and can fight against cognitive decline as you age. When you do fall asleep, it can help keep you asleep for longer, relieving stress and de-stimulate your brain.
Not everyone is an avid reader, however. When it isn’t already a habit in your nightly routine, it takes patience and an interesting book to stay consistent. We recommend making it the last thing you do before sleeping, which may be replacing screen time for some people. Make sure to use calming lighting to help ensure stress relief, while still being able to see the words.
In terms of what you should read, it is open to what you interpret as interesting. Many recommend fantasy and fiction to set you in a different reality, since nonfiction can sometimes be heavy topics that are difficult to fall asleep to.
