"My intent is to commit to high-quality sleep every night."
When you don't sleep well at night, it compromises your wellbeing for the rest of the day. Not only do you have less physical energy, you are less mentally alert, less receptive to the people in your life and more likely to get in a bad mood.
Do yourself a big favor today and for the rest of your life by renewing your commitment to a good night's sleep.
Here are a few basic tips to get you started:
- Establish a regular sleep schedule. Do your best to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends.
- Exercise regularly.
- Keep your bedroom dark as possible. Or wear a sleep mask.
- Have a relaxing evening ritual that is not too stimulating. Yes, that means no internet. Write in your journal. Meditate. Put together puzzle pieces. De-clutter your bedroom. Speaking of which...
- Make your bedroom a relaxing sanctuary only for sleep. No studying or working in bed. Keep your bedroom decluttered so that you will not always be distracted by piles of bills to pay and work to do, which should be separated to a different work room.
