Power Off

The light from your phone, television, or any other source of light may hurt your sleep. By turning off your phone or anything emitting light at night one hour before you go to sleep, you can sleep a lot more.

Take a Nap

You’ll sleep better at night if you can take a quick power nap during the day. Make sure the nap only goes up to 20 minutes. If not, this will hurt your sleeping schedule.

Block The Clock

If you’re the type of person who checks up on the time to see if you sleep at night, you should really consider stopping to look at your clock because this is one of the main reason why you sleep. You can easily put your clock under your bed or in a drawer or even turn it away from view.

Back Pain?

Place a pillow between your legs to align your hips better and ease the stress on your back. As you wake up, you’ll notice there is less pain. So if you suffer from back pain, tuck a pillow between your legs to ease the pain when you wake up.

Neck in ‘Neutral’

Woke up with a stiff neck? If so, blame your pillow. Your pillow must be the right size, shouldn’t be too flat, and not too fat either. If you sleep on one side, try aligning your nose to the center of your body. Have a good posture before you go to sleep. Do not set yourself in a position so that you can see the television better.

Dim Your Lights

Dimming your lights 2-3 hours before sleep sends messages to your brain that it is almost time for bed. It is recommended you use a 15 watt light bulb for these last two hours before bed.
