They say eating turkey can lull you to sleep, but the right sleeping tips can help you get good sleep well beyond Thanksgiving! Check out these helpful ideas for how to get better sleep now so you can enjoy all your guests this holiday season.
The Best Sleeping Tips for Deep, Rejuvenating Sleep
If you want to know how to sleep better at night naturally, try this.
Stick to a sleep schedule. With all the necessary preparation for guests, it’s easy to stay up late cleaning or making pies. But losing even one hour of sleep a few nights in a row can throw off your body clock for many days. Go to bed at a decent time every night — even on weekends — so you’ll be ready to greet friends and family with bright eyes!
Follow a relaxing bedtime routine. There’s certainly a lot to worry about when expecting a lot of people over, but taking that stress to bed with you can make it impossible to fall asleep. Try taking a hot shower or bath before bed and don’t work in bed or check social media for an hour before you need to fall asleep (seeing everyone else’s beautiful decor will just make you anxious!). Instead, pick up a funny book and let all your worries slip away before drifting into dreamland.
Get daily exercise. If you want to know how to get better sleep, talk to someone who is religious about their workout routine. Regular exercise early in the day helps facilitate a natural sleep/wake cycle because it raises body temperature, then allows body temperature to drop a few hours later — which naturally triggers sleepiness. If you usually do exercise but have missed a few workouts because you’re preparing for the holidays, you’ll definitely be able to tell the difference in the quality of your sleep, so get back on track and make exercise a priority — clean carpets or pumpkin pie can wait until after your workout!
Make changes to your sleep environment. One of the most important sleeping tips is to design your bedroom to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. The best temperature for your bedroom is 65-67 degrees to keep you from getting overheated, and there should be no light streaming in or noises that can wake you up. If your room is near a busy street, use a white noise machine to block out sound, and if it’s too bright due to street lights, hang blackout curtains.
Don’t taste test right before bed. Heavy foods can be hard to digest when you’re lying down, so if you want to make sure your new recipe is perfect, try it at least an hour before bed to avoid waking up with heartburn.
