Sleep better with these tips and techniques
How much sleep are you getting? Medical experts recommend that adults get at least 8 hours of sleep every night, and if you’re falling short of getting enough sleep, your health and well-being could be negatively affected. A lack of sleep can rob you of your ability to concentrate.. it can also put you in a foul mood and even make you more at risk for obesity and medical problems.
Getting more sleep is easier said than done for many people… so here are my tips in assisting this process.

1.Don’t Vary Your Sleep Schedule.
Your body runs on an internal clock. Waking up and going to sleep at different times each day makes it hard for that internal clock to get properly set. That’s why it’s important that you stick to the same routine whether it’s a weekday or a weekend.
2. Avoid Bright screens
Research has found that bright screens from backlit e-readers, mobile devices, computers and televisions can put the mind into a more active state, making it hard to fall asleep. Spend the last hour or two of your day away from screens to help prepare your body for rest.
3. Avoid Stimulants at Night.
Energy drinks and caffeine in coffee and tea stimulate your nervous system, making you more awake. The effects of stimulants can last for up to 10 to 12 hours, so try having your last coffee early in the afternoon.
4. Eat and Drink well.
Going to bed with your stomach growling can make it hard to fall asleep, but also if you have a very full tummy this can also disrupt sleep. Make your evening meal light, and if you eat early, have a small snack before bed. If you wake up frequently to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, reduce the amount of fluid that you consume after dinner. Also drinking alcohol can adversely effect your sleep so keep your intake to a minimum and cut it out entirely if possible
5. Create a Sleep-Friendly Environment.
To promote restful sleep, make sure your room is as dark as possible. Purchase blackout curtains if light comes in through the windows or try wearing a sleep mask. A white noise machine can help to drown out sounds that keep you awake at night. Temperature also matters in the bedroom. Studies have found that keeping the room slightly cool helps improve sleep.
6. Incorporate Hypnosis Into Your Daily Life.
Hypnotherapy has been clinically shown to help people with insomnia drift to sleep more quickly and sleep more soundly at night without side effects. Listening to a hypnosis recording before you go to bed can help you relax and unwind and calm subconscious thoughts that can often keep you awake.
