With that in mind, this post offers some tips everyone can use.

Exercise in the evening

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.

Invest in a memory foam mattress

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.

Get into a healthy routine

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.

    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.

    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!

    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 😊

  18. Amy Caudill December 15, 2017

    We have a sleep number bed; it really helps!

  19. John Fioravanti December 15, 2017

    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.
