The idea of going to bed every night gets more intriguing the older you get, but the quality of it is most likely declining due to our hectic lifestyles. Don’t you wish there was a button that you can press to shut your body off? However, what you might have missed is that sleeping is just like any other activity, it needs preparation or “warming up.” And that’s where the significance of preserving a bedtime routine becomes obvious.
The following are tips that every woman needs for a healthier, deeper sleep for a more energetic and productive morning:
- Turn your electronics off, no cheating under any circumstances!
We often tend to underestimate the role of “just taking a look at the phone screen” in ruining a whole night sleep. It is crucial. The light emissions of electronic devices are brain stimulators, addictive, and will affect your internal body clock. Plus, last-minute checking the latest news or tweets has a psychological effect to it: it will make you stress yourself out even if you don’t directly feel it.
Thus, eliminate the use of any electronic devices i.e. T.V, smart phones, laptops, or even reading devices at least an hour before going to bed.
- Reevaluate your sleeping environment:
Basically, you need to set the suitable temperature, clear the room from any noise makers, and make sure there’s no light whatsoever to prepare yourself for a deep slumber. You need to adapt yourself with a mindset that your room is only for the purpose of sleeping. Hence, go to bed only when it’s sleeping time, and if you kept tossing and turning around and you don’t feel like sleeping, go to another room and occupy yourself with a relaxing activity and only go back to bed when you’re tired. This way will, slowly but gradually, stimulate your brain to rapidly fall asleep when it touches the pillow, yet, it’s going to take time and patience.
- To sleep comfy, you need to feel comfy:
When it comes to sleep, feeling comfortable has many aspects to it. You need to make sure you’re sleeping on clean, smooth, and comfortable bed sheets and pillows. Preferably, wash your bed sheets and pillows with unscented products to prevent strong scents stuck to them. Next, wear the right clothes. Whether it’s the pajamas or the underwear you need to make sure you’re wearing a set of clothes that will guarantee comfy sleep.

- Cut off caffeine before bedtime:
Putting aside the numerous benefits of caffeine, caffeine can also worsen the quality of your sleep when consumed six hours before bed! So, you got to avoided drinking caffeine products after 3pm or just stick to decaffeinated beverages if you had to; they’re just as good
- Stick to a night ritual:
This step varies from a woman to another, but it’s necessary for everyone. You need to make sure you make the exact ritual everyday before you go to bed. For example, you can read a book, do some yoga, have a healthy night snack, take a warm bath, reflect on your day, plan for tomorrow, practice some meditation, or listen to some calming music. Whatever you choose to do, make sure to do everyday in relatively the exact timing. You also need to go to bed the exact time everyday to program your body when it’s sleep time. It might take days or ever weeks but trying to maintain a healthy bedtime routine is only advantageous for you and for your health, so let it take the time it needs.
