#Adulting isn’t always butterflies and rainbows. While it is definitely an exciting period in one’s life, the inevitable work stress and emotional drama can cause one’s sleep cycle to be disrupted. If you consider yourself a light sleeper, look no further than these tips for better sleeping habits:
1. Avoid your phone
Let’s face it: we’re all addicted to our smartphones, and there is obviously a downside to this. When you find yourself scrolling from app to app until the wee hours of the morning, then it may be a good idea to stay away from your phone when you’re about to sleep.
2. Pay attention to your diet
Going to bed when you’re either too hungry or too stuffed can leave you feeling uncomfortable. Nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol deserve caution, as their effects can disrupt your sleep later on.
3. Opt for comfortable sheets
Detail is everything. Investing in sheets with a quality material will definitely make you want to spend more time in bed!
4. Stick to a sleep schedule
With the recommended amount of sleep being seven hours, one should set aside no more than eight hours of sleep. It would help to go to and get out of bed the same time every day to help your body’s sleep-wake cycle.
5. Consider a night routine
Creating evening habits will definitely help as signals for your body that it’s time for bed. Whether it be lathering on a nurturing lotion, writing in a journal or taking a quick meditation session, it helps to have something to look forward to.
