  4. 4. Going to bed and waking up at the same time everyday (weekdays and weekends), regardless of the quality of the previous night’s sleep, helps your body clock synchronize. Sticking to a regular morning and bed-time will allow your body to become accustomed. This will make sleep feel more natural. This can be hard on a Saturday when your weekly 6 or 7am alarm goes off, but it pays off in the long run!<br />Set a Routine<br /><br />
  5. 5. Exercise (30 minutes a day is all that it takes!) is key to helping you get a good night’s rest. It is ideal to exercise early in the day. If this doesn’t work with your hectic schedule, aim to finish exercising at least three hours before bedtime to allow your body time enough to wind down.<br />Exercise Regularly <br /><br />
  6. 6. Melatonin, what the body produces in natural light, is a hormone that helps your body regulate its sleep cycle. Early morning light is especially helpful with establishing your body clock’s routine.<br />Soak Up Some Sun!<br /><br />
  7. 7. I know this will be hard for most multi-tasking Americans, but remove distractions from your bedroom. What does that mean? Television & Remote- Out!! Don’t sit up in bed doing things such as watching tv, working or using a computer. Your brain, believe it or not, makes connections between places and events. So, you need to reinforce that your place (your bed) is for one event (sleeping).<br />Don’t Multi-Task in Your Bed!<br /><br />
  8. 8. Make your bedroom look like a restful space. Keep it quiet and comfortable. If you find yourself sleeping in the middle of clutter, bright lights, noises or suffering extreme temperatures, make appropriate changes. If you don’tmake your bedroom an ideal space for sleep, don’t expect to get ideal sleep.<br />Create the right Space!<br /><br />
  9. 9. Create a personal rule to turn away from your alarm clock. Obsessing over time will make it harder to get a good night’s rest. Turn your clock (or yourself) away from the clock to avoid making this a distraction.<br />Avoid Watching the Clock!<br /><br />
  10. 10. Cut out stimulates that may keep you awake. Caffeinated beverages such as coffee, cola, tea and other energy drinks unnaturally interrupt your energy patterns. If you’re a cola or coffee-addict however, make sure to avoid these drinks after morning.<br />Consume Carefully<br /><br />
  11. 11. Use relaxation techniques before you “hit the sac.” This can help your body gear up to turn your switch from “on” to “off” without feeling so abrupt and unready. For instance, a warm bath or quiet shower an hour before bed will cause your body temperature to rise and then fall, promoting better sleep.<br />Make Time to Wind-Down<br /><br />
