I’ve been hard at work improving my own sleep habits for the last part of 2017, and I’ve come to believe that getting into a good sleep routine, is SO important for overall good health.

4 Tips for Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

Plan tomorrow, today. I use Todoist and Cozi to keep track of everything going on in my life. Planning your next day the night before, is a great way to dial down the giant “to-do” list going on in your head.

If you prefer writing things down by hand, keep a notebook by you bed, and write down everything that’s on your mind before you turn off the lights.

Sign off from social media. I don’t always adhere to this, but I know I fall asleep much easier when I do. No matter whether it’s “good stuff” {keeping up to date on nutrition news}, or “not so good stuff” {political squabbles on Twitter}, it’s easy to get sucked down the rabbit hole of social media at bedtime.

If you’re susceptible to this too, try experimenting with a “no social media” policy 1 hour before bedtime, and see if you sleep easier at night.

Pick up a book {and read it!}. I’m like clockwork with books at bedtime. Even if it’s a book I’m really into, when I read late at night, I get drowsy about 10-15 minutes into my book, and usually fall right asleep.

Side note: If you really enjoy reading, like I do, you’ll want to schedule some reading time into your morning, afternoon, or early evening, so you can actually finish reading your books 🙂

Cut back on the booze. I love a cocktail or a glass of wine, but neither one is my friend at bed time. Oh, sure, a glass or two will definitely help me fall asleep, but, 100% guaranteed, I will wake up sometime in the middle of the night, whenever I have a drink in the evening.

If this is you too, try cutting alcohol out for at least a couple of weeks, and see if you sleep more soundly through the night. After that, you don’t have to go cold turkey, but keep alcohol to a minimum if you want to improve your sleep habits for the long term. Cheers!
