Experts recommend that we try to get at least eight hours of sleep each night. People who don’t spend enough time with their eyes closed in bed could experience many unwanted effects. For instance, you might notice that you become overly tired or confused at work. You could also lose your appetite and develop mental health conditions. With that in mind, this post offers some tips everyone can use.
Working out when you get home from work is an excellent idea if you want to improve your sleeping patterns. While you could purchase a gym membership, nothing is wrong with using the latest fitness DVDs. Your goal is to use any excess energy before it’s time to close your eyes.
Sometimes issues relating to comfort can prevent people from getting a decent sleep each night. So, you might think about investing in an upmarket memory foam mattress. Those items are perfect for people who suffer joint conditions like arthritis because they provide more support than the traditional solution.
Making sure you wake up at the same time every morning and go to bed at the same time each night will make your life easier. Once you get into a healthy routine, you likely will notice that you struggle to keep your eyes open past your bedtime.
If you need more advice on the best ways of getting a decent night’s sleep, just take a look at the infographic published below. Good luck!

Great tips, Christy. Proper sleep has eluded me ever since the police came to the door after we had gone to bed to let us know that Greg had passed away in Atlanta. It’s a struggle to keep my mind from going back to that night. I use relaxation techniques every night.
I gave up evening boxing classes because they got my nervous system so wired up that I couldn’t sleep. Unfortunately, then the teacher ended the weekend afternoon classes, so that was the end of boxing for me.
My sleep has definitely improved since I started doing Zumba. My gym membership is money well spent.
Simple workout or a good evening walk helps to sleep quick. But Yoga really helps in relaxing mind and body.
Great suggestions, Christy. I sleep short hours due to work. Techniques here worth investing in.
Agree with everything…. I’m thinking of that my pillow guy on tv. I need a new pillow.
I swapped out pillows recently and it took a while to adjust but it has really improved my sleep quality. Make new pillows a Christmas present to yourself! xo
Now I know why I am irritable at the moment, Christy. I am not getting enough sleep because I am so stressed at work. Thank goodness the holiday period is nearly here.
Thank you so much! Great tips. I need to apply this because my sleep routine is messed up.
I can vouch for the comfort of a memory foam mattress. Once you have laid on one, you won’t want to sleep on anything else!
great tips as always. Thank you
Great tips, Christy! I recently started taking Valerian Root in the evening and my sleep has been much more sound.
Great tips ! I do follow relaxation techniques and it works well for me !!
Sigh…. for good sleep. I’m getting all Hamlet-y… to sleep, perchance to dream… ;) Have a thriving Thursday, Christy!
My bed sucks! I need a memory foam mattress!
I took going to bed and sleep for granted in the past. How I miss going to bed when I wanted to and being able to sleep all night long. Life as a carer has changed that. Going to my own bed now is a luxury and if I get to sleep all night I feel amazing the next day 😊
We have a sleep number bed; it really helps!
Wow! I really have my work cut out for me, Christy!
This is one of the challenges of our time – to switch off, put down the phone and get a good night’s sleep. So vital.
